Movie Review by Tim
December 19th, 2006

Basic

Basic was a box office failure bringing in only $26,793,311 at the US box office. I have not met many people that were a fan of this movie but I have a lot of good things to say about it.
The story is about some army rangers on a training exercise that end up being involved in the murder of their Sergeant. A couple of the rangers are found and brought back to base for questioning but different stories keep erupting and the interrogators do not know what to believe or what they have gotten themselves into. John Travolta plays a DEA agent brought in to help with the case when it gets out of hand.
The 2nd half of the movie is full of twist and turns, you never know which direction you are going in and the ride is non stop action and suspense. I will say that the ending is a shocker, you are not going to expect it. People tend not to like this movie saying that some of the actions portrayed by the military are inaccurate, etc.......People need to realize that its a movie.......I found it very entertaining and I think Samuel L. Jackson did one of his best performances as the hard ass Sergeant.
