Military cadets take extreme measures to insure the future of their academy when its existence is threatened by local condo developers.

User review:

I first saw Taps when I was only 11 and I loved it. But at eleven I liked it for its militaristic attributes rather than its ‘fight for honour’ motif.

I recently, aged 31, saw it again, and, predictably, liked it for entirely different reasons. Firstly, as someone else on this sight mentioned, the film is quite beautiful to look at. The cinematography is quite stunning actually, and if you don’t believe me, watch it again. Secondly the direction, writing, and editing is tight, controlled and technically fairly solid.

But what made this film for me was the impressive, inspired acting by the, at the time, young cast. I was captivated by the core trio of Cruise, Penn, and Hutton. If charisma were a concrete substance these three would have garbage bags of the stuff stowed in their cupboards.

The script was thoughtful, and, importantly, believable. The ending was very powerful… when I was eleven, but once seen, lost its effect on subsequent viewings.
