Editors Note
Note Demi 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 Summary
Summary In 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.

Review With a title like G.I. Jane, it would be easy to dismiss Ridley Scott's latest effort as exploitation fare. Such a reaction, however, would do the picture an injustice. On the other hand, the movie lacks the thematic depth that the film makers would like to attribute to it. Basically, this is a high-grade testosterone flick, which is ironic, considering that the lead actor is one of the 1990s' top female screen sex symbols, Demi Moore...With G.I. Jane, Scott has crafted an action/drama of passable entertainment value, but there's little here to astound or amaze any but the most casual or naive viewer. The movie does a reasonable job of engrossing an audience for two hours -- it's the kind of high energy, fast-paced film where you can guiltlessly root for the heroine to persevere -- but that's all it succeeds at. G.I. Jane is for those who prefer to cheer at the screen than be challenged by what's playing on it.

Review "I'm not interested in being some poster girl for women's rights,'' says Lt. Jordan O'Neil, played by Demi Moore in "G.I. Jane.'' She just wants to prove a woman can survive Navy SEAL training so rigorous that 60 percent of the men don't make it...Demi Moore remains one of the most venturesome of current stars, and although her films do not always succeed, she shows imagination in her choice of projects. It is also intriguing to watch her work with the image of her body. The famous pregnant photos on the cover of Vanity Fair can be placed beside her stripper in "Striptease,'' her executive in "Disclosure'' and the woman in "Indecent Proposal'' who has to decide what a million dollars might purchase; all of these women, and now O'Neil, test the tension between a woman's body and a woman's ambition and will.
