Abortive, Maybe, But Still a (Basic) Thriller

I caught the 2003 (military) thriller, Basic, with John Travolta and Connie Nielson over the weekend on DVD. The regrettable thing is that we missed the last ten minutes of the film on account of a vestigial scratch beneath the DVD:-(

Needless-to-say, I am beginning to grow an appetite for military thrillers that tend to throw up more twists than a rattlesnake in the Panama jungle...;-) Travolta, being one of my favourite actors, pulled this one off effortlessly, portraying a witty DEA Agent determined to get, well, to the bottom of the task asssigned him. Nielson was characteristically, and managed to kick-ass in more ways than one;-)

It reminds me so much of another military flick with another incredibly gorgeous and sexy lady-Ashley Judd, who acted with Morgan Freeman in High Crimes.

If you haven't yet seen the movie, go get the DVD, ignore what critics have to say, and make up your own mind about it--even if it is to drool at Ashley Judd!:-)

In the meantime, ideas are still ongoing for my thriller--thankfully, not a military one!!--as I am now in the process of introducing the killer into the story--it's only chapter four!!
