Watched most of GI Jane (with Demi Moore) again on Tuesday night. I’m not quite sure why it’s called GI Jane, since she’s actually in the Navy. It’s a pretty awful movie, made only watchable by excellent performances. The brutality is over the top and of course the battle at the end lets all the Yankees live and none of the Arabs.
Viggo Mortensen (he has his back to the camera in the photo) turned out to be the nasty Master Chief, which we didn’t realise until the end, and Jim Cavaziel (more famous as Jesus Christ in the Passion thereof...)was in a smaller part as one of the trainees. Anne Bancroft has a small but vital role as a devious politician, who crumbles rather too easily at the last moment. Is Demi Moore that powerful? Nah....!
