Thread: GI Jane's SERE School

  1. #1

    Default GI Jane's SERE School

    Hey guys I just watched GI Jane yesterday and wondered if their "version" of the SERE school was realistic? Whats up with the physical abuse? Is that fake or real? A more "real" BUD/S video is the ones made by Discovery Channel:

    The instructors were actually pretty cool

    NO!

    It was rediculously dramatized and over rated. As you assumed, that level of abuse is far beyond the true SERE school.

    And, I do believe this was covered before in a post entitled "GI Jane". Look for it for more info.

    lol, you do realize Harry Humpries, a Vietnam SEAL Veteran who served with Richard Marcinko, was the Tech advisor on the film, right? I think you give a movie too much credit to say it degrades our Servicemen. Of course, I'm no SEAL, so I can't speak for them.. but it stands to reason, that it's a fictional story and should be looked at as such.

    let me fore warn you (the general and curious public) that anyone that comes on here and boasts attendance of SERE and describes what it was like is most likely a liar or a goofball looking for UCMJ action.

    Harry was the advisor? If I recall he was the advisor on BHD/TearsSun too but I gotta admit some of GI Jane was realistic and other parts weren't realistic-- Definitely would not add it to my list of "cool military movies" like BHD, Tears, Proof of Life, Clear Present Danger, ummm??

    Harry Humphries has advised on countless movies and TV shows and is in business to make money, in case you hadn't figured it out. Yes he was a real Navy SEAL, but just because he advises on weapons/tactics etc. doesn't guarantee a good movie.

    Advisors give advice. Doesn't mean they actually take said advice.

    I met **** Marchinko once. He served with my friend Fred. Nice guy. Really big.

    Tears of the Sun
    Black Hawk Down
    Clear and Present Danger
    Proof of Life
