CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of audio film review for “The Inspection,” a based-on-his-own-life memoir film by writer/director Elegance Bratton on his experiences in Marine Corps boot camp, in theaters on November 23rd. Oscarman rating: 5.0/5.0
Rating: 5.0/5.0

A homeless gay young adult named Ellis (Jeremy Pope) decides to join the Marine Corps as a last hope for his life. After begging his mother (Gabrielle Union) for his birth certificate, Ellis ends up at boot camp on Parris Island in South Carolina. He initially meets the physical requirements, but is not as successful in disguising his sexual orientation, making him the target of a near-lethal hazing from drill instructor Leland Laws (Bokeem Woodbine) and his fellow enlistees. It takes gumption … and a bit of sympathy from instructor Rosales (Raul Castillo) … for Ellis to survive.

”The Inspection” opens in theaters on November 23rd. Featuring Jeremy Pope, Gabrielle Union, Raul Castillo, Bokeem Woodbine and Nicholas Logan. Written and directed by Elegance Bratton. Rated “R”
