Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher team up in this torch-passing tale of the brave men and women in the Navy Coastguard elite rescue diver unit. A catastrophic rescue mission leaves him wounded after his wife (Sela Ward) walks out on him, so heavily decorated, reluctantly aging rescue diver Ben Randall (Costner) takes some leave from the ocean to assume instructor duties down at the naval training base. There his humorless pedagogy rubs a lot of trainees the wrong way, but a champion high-school swimmer, Jake (Kucher), has no problem keeping up, and it looks like old Ben may have found someone worthy to be his replacement. But first each man has to wrestle with his own personal demons...and each other. Under the no-nonsense direction of Andrew Davis (THE FUGITIVE, UNDER SIEGE), the visceral energy flows nonstop through this familiar but nonetheless riveting affair. Shot in a flat, matter-of-fact manner, the harshness of naval academy life is celebrated without being glamorized, while the rescues at sea are nothing short of hair-raising, making excellent use of CGI effects to plunge the viewer right into the towering waves and storms along with the divers. Several familiar, stalwart faces are on hand to help the boys become men and the men to accept aging gracefully, including John Heard, Clancy Brown, and Neal McDonough. Costner is perfect in a curmudgeonly role that fits him like a tailor-made wet suit. The real surprise is Kutcher, who seems to grow as an actor as his character grows as a person, revealing lots of murky depth. Bonnie Bramlet adds some sparkle as the singer at the local watering hole.

    As a Coast Guard veteran disabled in service I feel qualified to rate this movie. It was not an easy movie for a man like me to watch, for it showed the price these brave men and women pay everyday to serve this country, often without appreciation. The actors themselves paid a price to portray the gritty realism seen in this movie. When I first viewed this movie it was in the theatre, and I was so moved I had to leave the theatre the back way so no one would see this sixty year old biker in tears. Kostner and Kutchner are two actors that the critics have largely ignored, without good reason, in this coastie's opinion. They are both at their hard-working best in this movie. I have never until now seen a movie that really portrays the Coast Guard in a convincing manner. I heartily recommend this movie for any young person considering a career in this service.
