    Synopsis


    Heartbreak Ridge
    Having spent much of his directorial career emulating Don Siegel and John Ford, Clint Eastwood borrows a page from the catalogue of Sam Fuller in Heartbreak Ridge. Eastwood casts himself as an old-fashioned Marine Corps sergeant who is out of step with the new-fashioned military. He returns to his old outfit as a gunnery sergeant, where he runs afoul of 1980s-style superior officers to whom the words "Gung Ho" are foolish anachronisms. But through his tough tutelage, Eastwood's lackadaisical platoon is whipped into a first-rate fighting machine, favoring teamwork over such New Age gobbledygook as "self-fulfillment." Eastwood's men prove their mettle during the invasion of Grenada. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Implausible but entertaining

      If I were a U.S. Marine I would be laughing myself silly at the portrayal of the group of misfits who won't take orders from any sergeant. These are cartoon characters who never would have survived boot camp. Still, it makes for an entertaining encounter with Clint Eastwood as their new sergeant and ultimately it does show Marines at their best. Clint quickly shows these misfits who is in charge and shapes them up while doing battle with a clueless officer with his own agenda. Competition in war games segues to the real deal in Grenada. Eastwood and his cohorts prove that grit and common sense can always best stupidity and arrogance as they defeat enemies -- foreign and domestic. Great fun.

      I remember liking this movie when I saw it "back in the day", so I wanted to get it for my video library. I remember that it had some good comedic moments, along with dramatic, etc.

      Great movie! Eastwood plays tough guy drill seargent with one liners that rival "Go ahead, Make My Day". Mario Van Peebles plays a screw up who turns out to be a great maring.

      The sharpness of the DVR is great, even if not Blu-ray! A great buy for the money.
