The nametag of the MP behind the reception desk at the psychiatric ward McKinney is sent to after his trial reads "Estevez" - Martin Sheen's original last name, and the last name of his son, Ramon, who plays Pfc. Gessner. See more »
When MSGT McKinney turns over the prisoners to PVT Stokes to march to the mess hall, PVT Stokes calls, "Column right..." They were standing in two ranks and could not do a column right from that formation. They needed to do a "right face," first, then two column right maneuvers to head for the gate. Since they would be parallel to the gate, another column right would be called. Stokes, also, did a column right without announcing it outside the gate. See more »
Plagued with a bad attitude and seriously lacking discipline, "Franklin Bean" (Charlie Sheen) joins the United States Army right after high school. Not long afterward, his father dies unexpectedly and this subsequently has a profound affect upon him. To that end, he gets into a drunken brawl while stationed in West Germany and for that he is sentenced to serve 90 days in a local stockade. Unfortunately, his attitude problems continue and this creates extreme friction with both his new NCOIC, "Master Sergeant Otis McKinney" (Martin Sheen) and his fellow prisoners. Likewise, the fact that all of his prison mates are black doesn't help his situation either. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was an interesting film for the most part in that it highlighted some of the social issues surrounding race relations within the U.S. military during this particular era. Admittedly, the plot was rather predictable but even so I found it to be somewhat enjoyable and I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.
