In this often-told story, Jake Huard (Franco), a persistent young man from a blue-collar family, defies all odds and becomes a plebe at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis. There he is pushed to the limit, both physically and mentailly, and it is Lt. Cole (Gibson) who pushes him close to his breaking point. But fight back he does—literally—by entering boxing competition where he'll be challenged by some of the finest fighters the Navy has to offer...including Lt. Cole. (Jack Kelley)

The 1.85:1 Blu-ray Disc picture can look very good, with well-resolved details and vibrant colors. Black levels are not as deep as they could be, but shadow delineation is good. Still, the image is not as three-dimensional looking as the best releases. (Danny Richelieu)
The uncompressed linear PCM 5.1-channel soundtrack sounds good, with above average fidelity and well-recorded dialogue. Atmospheric effects are consistently delivered through each of the full-range channels, but phantom imaging around the room is generally limited. (Danny Richelieu)
