Movie Reviews

This DVD is a must!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For anyone who wants to attend West Point, this DVD series is an absolute necessity. It follows cadets through thier incredibly difficult plebe year. The DVD gives amazing insight to life at the United States Military Academy."
Useful but often whiny
Nicholas Dujmovic | Vienna, Virginia | 01/08/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"For learning about West Point, this DVD is most useful, mainly because it seems to be the only video series about the Military Academy. But the potential viewer should know it has flaws. The predominanting emphasis on women cadets is inappropriate. The amount of time given to rants and whining by cadets is excessive--yeah, we know it's tough, but how many times do we have to hear the same complaints? In one case, I was actually hoping that one young lady would quit her griping and just quit. Good points include the interviews with graduates, especially recent ones who have gone into dangerous situations, where the West Point experience pays off. This is a good series that probably is worth your time."
Highly informative for the non-millitary individual

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was thrilled to follow this series on West Point as I have a son in his "plebe" year and I was not from a millitary background. It was excellent to move through the 4 years at WP and know the challenges he will be up against."
High School Senior Considering becoming a Cadet

(4 out of 5 stars)

"As a confused high school senior, I found the documentary to be very informative on whether or not West Point is for me. For anybody in a similar position I highly recommend the series."
