13 May 1999 | Pilgrim-5
Bland adaptation of the Conroy novel about misconduct in a military academy
If there were no Pat Conroy novel to compare this film to, the movie might fare better. Gone is the "love interest" (major) and added is a much more upbeat ending. Conroy's novels tend toward cynicism and this one is no different. Keith and Prosky do a good job of creating two of the main characters. There is some suspense toward the end, but too much is communicated too fast to be believable. Location shots are impressive (England!) and the pacing is right. The music (Howard Blake) is weak. One would like to have seen this film directed by Sam Peckinpah or Martin Scorsese.
