Becky and I went to see “Annapolis” last night. Yahoo Movies website at Annapolis describes the movie as follows:
“A young man from the wrong side of the tracks has his dream come true when he is accepted to the Naval Academy. But once there he is not sure he measures up against the best and the brightest.”
Annapolis was entertaining and we both enjoyed it. It’s a movie about a guy who’s dream is to become a Naval Officer and wanting to get into the Naval Academy. It turns out to be a movie more about boxing than anything else, which was a bit of a surprise for us. It’s kind of an “Officer and a Gentleman” wanna be, but I wouldn’t look for this film to win any awards from the Academy.
The story was fun with a few plot twists. There are a few parts that were a bit ridiculous, such as when one of the lead character’s in the film has a life threatening fall with very few serious injuries. The girlfriend of the lead character is played by Jordana Brewster and she looked a great deal like a young Demi Moore. The chemistry between the two of them was good and the casting Director is probably feeling good about that.
I didn’t think it was a great movie. I was in the Navy Reserves for six years, so it was too far fetched for me. Becky liked it much more than I did, but we both felt it was a good, clean, feel good movie. Becky liked it enough to recommend that you see it on the big screen and I was tossed between it being a Rental or Worth The Trip.
