The Finest Hour
release year:1992 genre:action/drama viewing setting:home laserdisc, 5/20/98 what I expected:SEAL action what I got:the typical SEAL movie attempt
synopsis:Two guys become friends during SEAL training and then go on to live their lives and fight in wars and fight over women
impressions:It wasn't bad, but it suffered from the same problem all SEAL movies suffer from: the moviemakers feel a need to wrap the action around a love story. Aaargh! Regardless, it had some good (and a few unrealistic) training and combat moments.
acting:Nothing either too bad or too good here. Rob Lowe was one of the two main characters.
final word:Okay, but not great. See also Silver Strand, Navy SEALs, and/or G.I. Jane for more SEAL action.
