Heartbreak Ridge offers another vintage Clint Eastwood performance. There are enough mumbled half-liners in this contemporary war pic to satisfy those die-hards eager to see just how he portrays the consummate marine veteran.

Eastwood is Gunnery Sergeant Tom Highway – a man determined to teach some of today’s young leathernecks how to behave like a few good men.

Eastwood’s stern ways inevitably prevail as his platoon is called up for emergency overseas combat. Guns are blazing as Clint’s cadre faces its first real action after hitting the beaches. As film moves towards its jingoistic peak in these sequences, Eastwood’s insubordinate bent culminates in a final conflict with a modern major (Everett McGill).
