Great action movie...Demi is excellent!
K. K. Perrelet
Demi Moore is great in this story about Jordan, a quite capable military woman who is chosen to become the first female Navy SEAL.
Lisa Shea
Apart from that, it was a really good movie, no real dead points like many other movies.

With a [beautiful] and gung-ho performance by Demi Moore, G.I. Jane is definitely fun to watch. But it has no basis in real Navy Seals training, which one can learn more about reading Dick Couch's "The Warrior Elite". In reality there is no mock P.O.W. camp where recruits are beaten and tortured, but there are endless sleepless nights of sitting in the 57 degree ocean water of San Diego. Real Navy Seals instructors are consumate professionals, who constantly put the welfare of their men before anything else. Evolutions (exercises) are mentally and physically challenging, but never grossly abusive as in G.I. Jane. Exercises are of the "run till you drop" variety than "we'll break your leg" variety. The point of real BUD/S training is to learn that teamwork can overcome any bad situation, not just how to take a beating. Also, unlike this movie, Seal recruits undergo BUD/S followed by years of intense training, qualifications, and testing before even being considered for active deployment. They are not sent into combat because they happen to be on a submarine near a hostile country.

I recently viewed this movie on television and decided to buy it. I prefer to watch DVDs rather than TV because I don't like the commercial interruptions and because usually they edit out some material for TV. I was very disappointed to find out that the TV version contained MORE scenes not less. The DVD version for sale is not the same as the version currently running on AMC. I was disappointed because some of my favorite scenes (the ones which prompted me to buy the movie) are not on the DVD.

This movie is a critically under-rated 4 star guilty pleasure for me. But like the previous reviewer, I recently watched it on cable (AMC) with a completely different opening scene not included on my GI Jane DVD. The scene depicts Demi's character Luge-ing in skintight black vinyl suit in a failed attempt to win an Olympic time trial. Later, I watched several other scenes in the AMC re-broadcast not found on my DVD. So, does this mean there going to be a G.I. Jane "Director's Cut" Version?

Demi Moore is great in this story about Jordan, a quite capable military woman who is chosen to become the first female Navy SEAL. Jordan isn't sure she wants to go through the hassle she knows will result from her presence at the training, but the congresswoman who is behind this encourages Jordan to try her best. Nobody expects Jordan to survive the harsh training program, and Jordan exceeds all expectations.
Viggo Mortensen plays the Master Chief who is in charge of the training program. He is quite harsh, as you would expect from someone who is trying to separate the "best of the best" from a group of individuals who are all quite talented. Viggo isn't a mere brute - he reads poetry by D.H. Lawrence and truly cares about his trainees. He knows that if he doesn't do a good job at his training, the men here will die (and cause others to die) when sent out into combat. I understand and applaud all of that. Viggo throughout the film shows a good balance of concern for his trainees, a desire to push them to be their best, and a desire to weed out those simply not cut out to be SEALs.
However, being a fan of the military and its task of protecting the weak, I had HUGE issues with the "pivotal scene" in the SERE camp. The movie is directed by Ridley Scott of Alien fame and you would think that this man would have respect for a strong female character and the situations that result. I very much equated Jordan to Ripley, both strong women who held their own and earned respect of those around them. But instead of just having Ripley and the others tied up or left in the sun or other "see if you can resist the concerns of your body", Ridley decides to have the Master Chief *brutalize* one of the soldiers and then almost rape Jordan. What????

As a female in the Navy, I put off seeing this movie for years. I thought it was just another Demi Moore 'jiggle' movie, some sort of vehicle that would have her beating up big men in one scene and then writhing around, full of lust, on the floor. I don't know about you, but I'm kind of tired of this new tough/sexy,love her/fear her, stereotype that Hollywood has been churning out since Linda Hamilton took on Terminator 2. I thought this movie would insult females in the military, and therefore insult the military. Well, some of it was definitely Hollywood's idea of the military, but other parts of it were fairly good portrayals.
Honestly, I think Demi Moore is a mediocre actress, at best. She just comes across as not being very bright or complex in every movie I have seen her in. But as Lt. Jordan O'Neil, she's suuposedly a brainiac. She's an intelligence officer that accurately predicts a retrieval point and time for a unit that is out of communication in one scene, and then rattles off the specs on a nuclear device in another. However,the rest of her dialogue doesn't reflect this keen mind and the scope of her emotions doesn't ever really sell the conflict one feels when they are the first to cross that gender line. She's 100% confident and angry all the time. I raise the Bravo Sierra flags (BS) on that one. The one point in the movie where she seems to be contemplating ringing out of training (quitting), just shows a blank faced Moore staring at the bell. Another problem I have with Moore playing this role is that I just don't buy the fact that she could keep up with her class in SEAL training with the type of build she has. two words--stress fractures. I wish someone else played this part. I like her better in movies that don't have a message.
