"A very entertaining get-tough fantasy with political and feminist underpinnings. Todd McCarthy, Variety
Editor's NoteDemi Moore stars as Lieutenant Jordan O'Neil, the first female candidate for the U.S. Navy SEAL unit, a clandestine strike force drawn from the crème de la crème of the combined services--an opportunity provided her by the political maneuvering of Senator Lillian de Haven (Anne Bancroft). To make the grade, Jordan has to survive a grueling selection process in which 60 percent of all candidates wash out. Enigmatic Master Chief John Urgayle (Viggo Mortensen) runs the brutal training program that involves 20-hour days of running, marching, and crawling through obstacle courses under the worst weather conditions while carrying landing rafts--not to mention eating out of a garbage can during breaks. Along with the best of the men, the lean, mean, shaven-headed Jordan handles the punishment, including a bizarrely motivated beating from her drill sergeant. The top brass, confident that a woman would quickly drop out, becomes concerned as Jordan's ability to handle SEAL training becomes evident. Soon she must contend with trumped-up charges that she's fraternizing with women, and the senator begins receiving threats that military bases in her state may have to be closed. Director Ridley Scott aestheticizes the harrowingly realistic training sequences with photography of austere beauty.

Plot SummaryIn Ridley Scott's G.I. JANE, navy lieutenant Jordan O'Neil smashes the glass ceiling as the first female candidate for SEAL training, but her biggest battles are yet to come--brutal training regimens, persecution from her tough-as-nails master chief, and the growing realization that she is a pawn in the political games played by her chief supporter, a hardened female senator.
