Yes, this is worth watching. Kostner always manages to create a sympathetic character and he's easy on the eyes whether in a baseball uniform or a wetsuit is easy on the eyes. However, the military errors are careless, disrespectful, and with a tiny bit more research avoidable. Barksdale Air Force Base is in Southern Louisiana and they don't host Coast Guard trainees. They have their own mission, thank you. Enlisted are trained at Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, SC. I understand they filmed some of the movie there, but why call it Barksdale AFB?? A laughable moment is Kevin Costner called one of the trainees and Airman...No, just no. It's at that moment we begin to hear dialogue from movies such as An Officer and a Gentlemen, and Top Gun. Kostner all but calls Ashton "Mayo" I kept waiting for it. Another scene is very much like Tom Skerrit, in Top Gun saying to Maverick..."What I'm about to tell you is classified. It could end my career." That kind of carelessness pulls the viewer away from the story. Much of the dialogue is predictable. You can even recite the dialogue along with the actor! Anyway, it's watchable and at least they called Kevin by his correct rank, which was Senior Chief. Disrespectfully, referring to a Senior Chief as "Chief" is an experience you don't want. Uniforms: C-, Rescue Ops: A, Dialogue: D. Enjoy the movie!
