Opening in January, finally most of the artsy movies will be done, and we can just get a decent movie about a recruit joining the Naval Academy. Isn’t that what we all want after Christmas?
Here’s the simple synopsis…
James Franko is Jack. He’s a dude who doesn’t have nearly the connections or standing in society to get into the United States Naval Academy, yet from the trailer, he pesters his way in. Cole is played by Tyrese Gibson. For most of those at the Academy, they got in after high school, yet Cole found his way there after serving a couple of tours of duty and now is an instructor. Cole sees a great future for Jack, only Jack doesn’t always see it, and the story isn’t new, but it looks fairly entertaining. It’s also got Jordana Brewster, who’s looking great.
I’ll have to see how the football season is going if I get a chance to see this film, but it doesn’t look horrible, just kind of re-hashed at a different military school. So what.
That’s it for this preview! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
