Annapolis on Blu-ray
Amateur boxer and son of a shipbuilder Jake Huard (James Franco) is determined to prove to his working-class family that he isn’t the lost cause they believe him to be. So, he applies to the prestigious United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, where only 1,200 out of 50,000 applicants are accepted. Through persistence, he makes it into the academy, but immediately butts heads with tough-as-nails training officer Lt. Cole (Tyrese Gibson), whom Jake must win over if he wants to achieve his goal of becoming an officer. This 2006 movie, directed by Justin Lin, looks visually stunning in HD resolution, thrusting viewers into the action of the academy’s annual boxing competition, where Jake and Lt. Cole settle their differences.
