James Franco stars in this coming-of-age military drama as Jake Huard. Coming from an impoverished background, Jake sets his sights on entering the exclusive Annapolis naval academy, where he is soon pushed to the limit of his endurance by ruthless training officer Lieutenant Cole (Tyrese Gibson). In order to prove that he has what it takes, Jake signs himself up for the prestigious and elite Brigade Championship boxing competition, where he will have to compete with some of the best fighters in the entire navy.

Amateur boxer Jake Huard (James Franco) promises his dying mother he will make it into Annapolis Naval Academy. When he is finally accepted into the training he soon comes to heads with his gruelling Commander Cole (Tyrese Gibson) but he does get support from his superiors including the beautiful Ali (Jordana Brewster) and Lt. Commander Burton (Donnie Wahlberg).

I really enjoyed this film and I'd really recommend it to any boxing fan. There are a few well choreographed fight sequences and even the training scenes are pretty good (nothing compared to Rocky though).

The story suffers from been a little predictable and the scenes were Huard tries to put on weight so he can take on Cole in a boxing tournament is a little ridiculous (eating a lot of Chocolate on bread while he is doing his hard training isn't going to make him gain an extra 10 Pounds).

Overall a well acted and made film that is well worth watching.

If you ever saw "An Officer and a Gentleman" then this dvd will remind you of that fact, although with a slight difference, basically Ambitious ship builder dreams of joining Naval Officer cadet school (boyhood dream). The film follows his own inner deficiencies and those around him. Can he fit into a world of the privallaged few, discarding the life he once led? is an amateur boxer, so film focuses on tis in a really awesome way. Really enjoyed this film. Well worth a watch.

As you've probably gathered most of the reviews for the Disney Navy movie “Annapolis” are for the 'DVD' version.

The ‘BLU RAY’ however is only available in the States and it’s REGION A LOCKED. Unfortunately this means that it WILL NOT PLAY on most UK BLU RAY players unless they're chipped to play 'all' regions (which the vast majority aren't). Don’t confuse BLU RAY players that have multi-region capability on the 'DVD' front – that won’t help.

So check before purchasing the American release – check if your BLU RAY player is able to play REGION A discs...otherwise best wait for someone on this side of the pond to give “Annapolis” a REGION B or C release some time in the future…

Format: DVD
When a film is entitled ANNAPOLIS one expects to see something that resembles or in some part reflects the title. Unfortunately, this is based on a small, twice-told story rendered in what appears to be a Frankenscript made up from parts of other scripts from feature films superior to it. It's a superficial story at that. It's also obvious that the neither writer nor director served in either the US Navy or the USN Marines Division, nor apparently bothered to hire a knowledgeable consultant for it lacks authenticity and is marred by technical errors. For example, there's a line where Midshipman Cole (well played by the striking Tyrese Gibson) a former Marine that we later learn will return to the Marines after graduating Annapolis refers to himself as a "soldier." This is a rather grinding mistake because no Sailor or Marine ever refers to himself as a soldier even while intoxicated and spouting philosophic euphemisms. It just never happens.

Perhaps the most glaring error is the entire writing of the "Twins" character (once again very well played by Vicellous Reon Shannon) who is an overweight, physically unqualified plebe. In truth the entry examination for Annapolis is done in two parts and one part covers an entire day on physical qualifications that all candidates must pass. Physically unqualified students are never found at the Naval Academy. The part should simply have never been written as it is. The idea itself obviously comes from any number of old boot camp films where it not only happens but where this characterization has long ago become trite.

At this writing I do not know why the picture was not made at Annapolis itself but this fact encompasses an entire basket of missed opportunities.

My brother saw this one night on the tv and said it was exactly my type to watch. When I saw it was on Amazon, I had to get it. It was good to see some familiar figures like James Franco and Jordana Brewster but I didn't think it was all that brilliant. I've seen some worst and better films out there than Annapolis. It's the type you really only see once unless you're a great fan of James Franco or Jordana Brewster

Format: DVD
Annapolis is supposed to be a story of the underdog, who rises above the fray to achieve glory, but the movie is riddled with so many clichés and rip-offs and features such an absolutely astounding lack of imagination on behalf of the director Justin Lin, that it becomes almost impossible to take any of it seriously. It doesn't help that for much of the time, Annapolis just can't figure out what it wants to be - a picture about boxing or a hard-edged military drama. I rented it for the beefcake - so go figure.

This competently made but rather bland take on An Officer and A Gentleman and Rocky stars James Franco as the melancholy Jake Huard. Jake is a working-class kid who works with his father (Brian Goodman) on the Annapolis shipyards, drinks beers with his buddies at night, but in reality harbors dreams of attending the Naval Academy across the bay.

Jake is also an amateur boxer, and his undeniable talent in the ring gets the attention of an officer from the Academy. Soon he's admitted into Annapolis and becomes the nemesis of Tyrese Gibson's ex-Marine midshipman Lt. Cole, the film's titular villain but really just a nice guy at heart. Lt. Cole seems determined to undermine Jake as well as prove he's the superior force in the real life Brigade Championships.

The poor Jake - and his "plebe" mates - are forced to undergo all kinds of humiliations in order to toughen them up for officer material, he encounters merciless rules, the dogged and resolute brotherhood, and the unsparing superior Lt. Cole, and the film does do a good job of portraying some of the rigors of training. But all too often the film falls into sadistic stereotyping and much of what we see doesn't always come across as true.
