Rating: 3.5/4 -- This is one of those special films that moves effortlessly between tension, tears and laughs ... Robert Duvall's performance runs neck-and-neck with his Lonesome Dove turn as his career best. Full Review

Description by

Bill Meechum (Robert Duvall) is one of nature's hard cases, an ace marine fighter pilot so adept at his lethal trade that they call him The Great Santini. But now it's peacetime 1962. And more at home playing "top gun" in the cockpit than playing father in his own living room, he's become that most useless of all figures: a warrior without a war.
