Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this film includes several hectic, noisy boxing scenes, with the camera taking alternate points of view for punchers and punchees. The fast cuts and framing make these images potentially disturbing for younger viewers. Some of the training rituals for the Annapolis cadets are brutal (falling in mud and falling off obstacles in slow motion, sweating and groaning). An officer has a cadet get into a body bag and be zipped up, to show other cadets their responsibility to their charges. Depressed cadet jumps out a window. Characters drink alcohol in a bar, a romantic couple exchanges gazes and kisses in pretty lighting. One prostitution reference.
Brief kissing, some girls dance seductively at a bar. Reference to a prostitute.
Boxing scenes are fast and hard-hitting; other scenes show physical tests and some fighting among cadets. A suicide attempt.
Mild cursing ("hell") and some crude language.
Growing up is good, but whining, arguing, and resisting authority are not so good.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Beer-drinking in bar scenes, one scene with smoking.
