    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Down in the mud with the guys, Moore finds the heart of her character and a career beyond vanity and hype. She's never looked better. show more

    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    With a strongly visual director, Ridley Scott ("Blade Runner," "Alien", the film really shows what's involved at this level of combat training. show more

    Susan Wloszczyna USA Today

    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] show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The training sequences are as they have to be: incredible rigors, survived by O'Neil. They are good cinema because Ridley Scott, the director, brings a documentary attention to them, and because Demi Moore, having bitten off a great deal here, proves she can chew it. show more

    It's the kind of high energy, fast-paced film where you can guiltlessly root for the heroine to persevere -- but that's all it succeeds at. show more

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

    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. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    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. show more
