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

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

[T]this is solid B-movie stuff right outta the time when 'B movie' wasn't an insult but more a mark of quality craftsmanship...

Annapolis works because it presses emotional buttons which are virtually foolproof, not because it offers anything new to the audience.

[Franco's] flinty eyes speak volumes in Annapolis, a punchy drama that connects.

It's a formula plot, but it's handled with some humor, some heart, and a sure hand on the camera.

Where inspiration fails it, workmanlike competence gets it though.

Stacked with unoriginal plot elements hot off the assembly line, yet still manages to present said story with conviction, tough rings of truth, and a rooting attentiveness.

Despite the lack of originality in Annapolis, it is dandy entertainment.

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.
