The film has a great story and fully developed characters. It also contains one of Pacino's best performances ever. A well deserved win for Best Actor. The blind colonel, is a truly memorable character. The speech he gives, in the films ending, delivers the right amount of inspiration.

This is one of Al Pacino's last great roles, before he became a caricature of himself. His nuanced Colonel Slate brings to life even the simplest of scenes in this powerful drama that focuses on the redemption of its two characters in vastly different ways. It is the believable relationship between Pacino and Chris O'Donnell's character that makes the film the successful emotional ride that it is.

Not a typical Pacino movie, but this may be his best role yet! No one else could've played that part. Fantastic!

To be honest with you, I didn't really like the message this movie was giving out. Don't be a rat even when someone did something very wrong! What a horrible message for the kiddies. But, it was still a pretty good movie.

This 1992 movie is one of my all time favorites. Al Pacino's performance as a blind and sarcastic Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade is one of his best and well deserving of his Oscar win! Chris O'Donnell shines as the humble prep student Charlie Simms. His relationship with Frank grows as the movie plays. The "Out of order" speech during the climax of the plot is one of the best dialogue in any movie ever made. Very enjoyable movie with one of the first roles for Phillip Seymour Hoffman. This is a definite " Must See" movie!

I wouldn't call this a comedy. It's very dark and dramatic. Both O'Donnell and Pacino give outstanding performances. Loved it and loved the ending!
