Time Out says

Stylistically this is more interesting and more affected than Schumacher's Flawless. Either way, it's a big improvement on his past tendentious nonsense. A biographical record of a company of men training for Vietnam at a military academy, it's not unlike the first half of Full Metal Jacket, though less of a theorem than Kubrick's vision. Schumacher uses a gritty handheld style - standard but unobtrusive - and gets a testy lead performance from Farrell as the charismatic rebel. Involving but inconsequential.
