Annapolis has the seeds of a good, if derivative, film in it, but gives that up in favor of being a mediocre boxing film.

This military drama never gets moving. Just mainly posturing by all sides concerned. The screenplay was definitely missing in action. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Character development and narrative substance are absent in this wispy movie about beefcake and getting a knack for teamwork in an oppressive atmosphere.

What Annapolis really is, more than a college movie or a boot-camp movie, is a boxing movie, and a run of the mill one at that.

Annapolis throws the same punches as many of its inspirational fellow cadets and almost, but not quite, wins the fight.

The innumerable "saw it coming" plot contrivances begin to stack up like so much cinematic cord wood.

...if you haven't seen many other military movies or sports movies or underdog movies, Annapolis may not be as mundane for you as it was for me.

It's a pleasure to watch James Franco and Tyrese Gibson square off against each other as two men heading for a showdown.

It's never less than excruciatingly predictable, unintentionally funny and dripping with moldy clichés.

Annapolis is a good film basically because it's not a bad film.

This film had very little on its mind other than making sure that the 12-to-14 year old girls who went to see it would be impressed enough to tell their MySpace friends about it.

There are so many ways to criticize Annapolis that I hardly know where to start. You could write a thesis paper on the things wrong with this movie.
