War films

War films are not always showing the war per se - often the main theme is the influence of the conflict on lives of people involved, but also their families and friends. War is seldom a local thing - the trauma, the pain, the death they put their mark on people from around the world.

Language: English

Jordan O誰eil could be a first woman to finish the toughest training for special forces, but behind the scenes politicians try to make use of her success or failure.

Senator Lillian DeHaven tries to force the Navy to be gender-neutral, but it is not an easy task. During the negotiations she reaches an agreement - if women would prove in test cases they can be as good as men, the Navy will change their policy and allow women to take any job within service. DeHaven chooses topographical analyst Lieutenant Jordan O誰eil as her first guinea pig - she enrols O誰eil for the U.S. Navy Combined Reconnaissance Team course. But she chooses her not because she is well prepared for the task, she chooses O誰eil to use her physical attraction to prove the point in the media. Jordan begins the course knowing that only about 40% of the candidates don稚 drop out during the tests, but senator don稚 let her forget that future of women in Navy depends on her finishing the whole course. Jordan is prepared to sacrifice a lot and she manages to keep up with men, but at the same time she is under great pressure from media.

Film that on paper looked like a great idea: Ridley Scott behind camera, Demi Moore in hot outfits in front of the camera, the inspiring story of a woman breaking the barriers, the insight into tough military course. Unfortunately the whole thing went into pieces due to poor quality script full of cliches and sentimental rubbish. The story itself is of course fiction, not to mention that the second part of it is miles away from reality, Demi Moore looked great, Viggo Mortensen did his best, but Ridley Scott either lost hist magical touch or just fell asleep while working on the final version, because it is below his standards and not far from level of his dignity.
