Movie Review – Basic

A simple military training operation goes into the jungle in Panama and only 2 of the original 7 soldiers come out of the jungle alive. Tom Hardy is called in by his old friend to help the Provst Marshall discover what happened in the jungle.

John Travolta & Samuel L Jackson both revise similar roles from previous movies. Travolta in a role similar to The Generals Daughter and Jackson plays a character similar to one he played in Rules of Engagement. Both
are very good in their defined roles and are well supported by several notable actors. The movie offers several versions of what happened and the viewer is thrown various explanations before the truth is revealed and its well done how everything is strung out until the end.

An enjoyable movie, not a classic but far from being a bad movie also!
