    This hot-button picture isn't especially well thought-out, but it might be crafty and manipulative enough to rile up audiences.

    Bancroft and Mortensen take home the acting awards -- the pleasure they take in what they're doing really makes the film come alive.

    As a vehicle for Moore's acting abilities (and Mortensen's, for that matter), G.I. Jane is terrific. But as the end-of-summer blockbuster it's doubtless intended to be, it's pretty much a washout.

    Well-intentioned even as it surrenders to commercialism, G.I. Jane comes on like the ultimate battle of the sexes. But it ends up being an unfulfilling exercise in pseudo-feminism. [22 August 1997, p. 7D]

    If you're looking for a film that addresses a woman's place in a combat unit, keep waiting. If you want a film where a woman can get big muscles and shoot guns and have her husband still love her, here you are.

    G.I. Jane is liberated, all right--from good acting and a good story.
  7. Reviewed by: Deborah Brown
    In spite of a catalogue of downsides, including clunky dialogue, fuzzy morals and preposterous story lines, G.I. Jane does offer a perverse level of enjoyment.

    The hump of feminism and war cliches floats down close to insufferable.
