Annapolis Movie Review

A poor but ambitious young man strives to make good in one of the most competitive institutions on Earth in this military drama. Jake Huard is a young man from a small Maryland town who grew up in a blue-collar family with few opportunities. Wanting to make something of himself after completing high school, Jake set his sights on attending the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, where he narrowly makes the cut and becomes one of the 1,200 applicants selected for the freshman class. Jake finds that life as a "plebe" is intellectually challenging and physically punishing, and he soon develops a powerful adversary in Midshipman Lt. Cole his training commander, who pushes Jake to the limit to see if he has what it takes. Standing on the razor's edge of failing as both a student and a soldier, Jake makes a brave but dangerous gesture toward proving himself by entering the Brigade Championships, a Naval boxing competition where he'll go into the ring against the best fighters in the Navy -- including Lt. Cole.

Chance Review
A Officer & A Gentleman meets Rocky, it tries to be, but fails in delivering a believable plot. This is supposed to be inspiring and a glimpse of our brave men and women, it fails on so many levels. No self respecting military officer would behave in those pathetic ways. You have to sacrifice and struggle. Insubordination, defying direct orders, inappropriate contact, lying, and oh so much more. Not a single character deserved to be in that school.
