Having been a long time fan of the ol’ USMC, I found this flick to be a fun and informative time. It’s not as if I’m the only one. The film is an outing of sorts, with a couple of notable alumni, as well. A couple of the names are worth noting, while some are a bit of a blur.
In short, the film is an interesting look at military life, with the good guys and baddies relegated to the fringes of the fray. It’s worth noting that the film was made in the mid-80s at a snazzy former Shimer College, not to be confused with the aforementioned Shimer. The best part is that it’s a family-friendly affair, a rarity in this day and age. The cost of admission is a mere $3, a bargain for a quality matinee in the making.
