We gave it a B+

Boot camp is hell. That’s the moral of this hard-hitting film about recruits undergoing torturous training en route to Vietnam. Since director Joel Schumacher (8mm) shoots the actors as if they were Abercrombie & Fitch models (especially hunky newcomer Farrell, the magnetic standout as the platoon’s charismatic troublemaker), Tigerland is as homoerotic as it is harrowing — and it’s also undeniably powerful.
