Demi Moore (DISCLOSURE, INDECENT PROPOSAL) is in top form in this action-packed hit! Moore stars as gutsy Lieutenant O'Neil, the first woman ever given the opportunity to earn a place in the armed forces most highly skilled combat unit -- the elite Navy SEALS! But the already brutal rigors of training camp turn into an unimaginable test of courage and determination once it becomes clear that no one -- powerful politicians, top military brass, or her male Navy SEAL teammates -- wants her to succeed! A critically acclaimed triumph directed by action hitmaker Ridley Scott (ALIEN, THELMA & LOUISE) -- you'll cheer for G.I. JANE as this brave soldier proves she belongs among the best of the best!
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

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.
