Hard to believe this is a mystery, considering all the cards are laid out on the table from the blossoming start. Or are they? Cheap twists couldn't save another Travolta bomb.

Hammy, overwrought, and over-the-top, The General's Daughter is still good for some rainy day entertainment, as long as the creepy rape/homicide storyline isn't too disturbing for the viewer.

The cast is the sole reason to look in on this mid-tempo, dark suspense flick. John Travolta, Madeline Stowe, Tim Hutton, James Woods and James Cromwell are all in good form in this paranoid a... read more

Since my wife has always been a fan of John Travolta, we ended up watching this movie together. Personally, I always thought that Travolta was a decent actor but even after he made his come-back with ‘Pulp Fiction’, the guy always kept making some dubious career choices. Anyway, eventually, even though it turned out to be one of the better movies starring this actor, I still ended up with some... read more

"When: July 27th First-Time Viewing: Yes. How: DVD from the library. What'd I Think?: Melodramatic, overwrought and exploitative, this film lacks the nuance needed to handle this subject matter. My Rating: 4/10 Other Notes: NA."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- March 2016 (31 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 56min. First Viewing The General's Daughter is just really stupid. It's a regressive, exploitative film that honestly believes that it's making a point about the military, gender and rape culture. The only point it makes, however, is that Hollywood really needs to pick better scripts. "

Anyway, eventually, even though it turned out to be one of the better movies starring this actor, I still ended up with some mixed feelings. Indeed, on one hand, it was a rather effective police procedural with a decent cast (John Travolta, Madeleine Stowe, James Cromwell, Timothy Hutton, James Woods), a nice mood and a decent and almost realistic story-line dealing with the treatment of female soldiers. However, even though I thought it was all fairly entertaining, it felt also really sleazy and I couldn’t shake the” read more
