Demi Moore gives "the performance of her career" (NBC-TV, New York) in director/producer Ridley Scott's (GLADIATOR) riveting saga of uncompromising courage. Presented for the first time on Blu-ray Disc, this tale of grit and determination is more triumphant than ever in this astonishing format. Moore stars as trailblazer Lieutenant O'Neil, the first woman to earn a place in the elite Navy SEALs. Experience the brutal rigors of training camp -- and O'Neil's endless battles with top military brass and her male Navy SEAL teammates -- in hard-hitting, in-your-face 1080p. Feel the explosive action of combat with 5.1 48 kHz, 24-bit uncompressed audio. You'll stand up and cheer for G.I. JANE, thanks to Blu-ray High Definition!
It seemed like a pretty good career move, and for the most part it was. Demi Moore will never top any rational list of great actresses, but as her career stalled in the mid-1990s she had enough internal fire and external physicality to be just right for her title role in G.I. Jane. Her character's name isn't Jane--it's Jordan O'Neil--but the fact that she lacks a penis makes her an immediate standout in her elite training squad of Navy SEALs. She's been recruited as the first female SEAL trainee through a series of backroom political maneuvers, and must prove her military staying power against formidable odds--not the least of which is the abuse of a tyrannical master chief (Viggo Mortensen) who puts her through hell to improve her chances of success. Within the limitations of a glossy star vehicle, director Ridley Scott manages to incorporate the women-in-military issue with considerable impact, and Moore--along with her conspicuous breast enhancements and that memorable head-shaving scene--jumps into the role with everything she's got. Not a great movie by any means, but definitely a rousing crowd pleaser, and it's worth watching just to hear Demi shout the words "Suck my ----!!" (rhymes with "chick"). --Jeff Shannon

"The more everyone f_!*^ with me, the more I want to gut it out" - Jordan O' Neill
As great as the films antagonist and very intriguing supporting characters are, Demi Moore is the standout here, giving Lt. Jordan O' Neill her trademark unapologetic attitude. She carries Jordan even at the character’s best and worst moments. A victim of abuse, sexism, and her growth, this is her journey into better defining her identity, finding that right balance between hero and her own person. It’s an incredible film by famed director Ridley Scott: Which would have faired better nowadays then it did in 1997. I do believe this is some of Demi's best work (with the exception of some badly filmed action scenes & weak dialogue that are hard to ignore). At the end, you’ll love G.I Jane as you root alongside her during this underrated and fun film.
similarly as in the movie "top gun", there is a "real combat situation" which does not look too realistic.
Demi Moore does a fantastic job. She makes the story look real enough. I also liked the movie because of Viggo Mortensen, we all know well from the Lord of the ring movies.
G I Jane is very well written. I think it gives pretty good portrayal of what military training is like. Demi Moore does a great job of acting as her character goes through this tough elite military training. Her character shows great determination in her effort to complete the elite training despite the fact that so many people are against her training for this elite military position. Her opponents even include a female senator who pretends to support Moore's character when the senator is really only plotting for her own political gain. Anne Bancroft does an excellent job as the back stabbing female senator. Viggo Mortensen is also excellent in the role of her training officer.
I highly recommend this movie on Blu-ray.
