Assault on Entertainment
Weakly directed, poorly written, Assault At West Point lacks tangible emotional depth regarding a turbulent and abhorrent era in our country's history. A situation that ought to induce indignation and provoke thought comes across rather as trite and dull, despite a roster of talented actors. Where there ought to be tension there is Samuel L Jackson's raised voice and Sam Waterston's arched bushy eyebrows, where there should be genuine feeling there is simply poor acting. Except for giving the bare bones of a story many people might not be familiar with, Assault at West Point is ultimately not worth the time or the money.
