Summary: it took over a month to get the movie, I will never buy again from you. was also supposed to have free shipping but got charged. in answer to the bottom line i recommend the movie, but buy it somewhere else.
Excerpt: First time I've written a review on here but this disc was so surprising and satisfying that I felt I had to comment especially after reading "headhunters01" review. This really is a great picture - it totally captures the look of an 80s movie without it being too 80s - if that makes sense.
Excerpt: One of the best, if the not THE best, catalog releases of the year, this one is a no-brainer. The guy above who gave the video *** is clearly not qualified to render an opinion (even though, of course, he's entitled to one, bad as it is).
Excerpt: I don't know what headhunter01 was watching, but it sure as hell couldn't have been the same disc I did. Colors are bland? Doesn't sound 5.1? A little better than the DVD? That is the kind of untrue propaganda that keeps people from buying a terrific transfer like OAAG. And it IS terrific!
Excerpt: One of my favorites. Its fun to watch and reminisce my basic training..This one I remember the DI's rolling in a tv cart with a vhs copy of this after graduation to let us watch...Anyway..I was hoping for a better transfer..It's a little better than the dvd, but nothing really sharp.
Summary: I recall viewing this film with Louis Gosset Jr. as an effective Sgt. and Gere was solid as well. Nothing noteworthy or special about this flick. If only the female parts were more interesting.
Excerpt: A fine film about navy training. It gives a fairly interesting portrait of the time in the man's life, and all the people around him. Somethings in it were rather predictable in my book such as what happens to the man character's friend.
