This could have been interesting, but Ridley Scott's heart didn't seem to be into it.
It feels like a new ending was very clumsily tacked on.
After Moore confronts the Texas Senator, the quitting moment is just patched over and ignored with minimal fuss and then a contrived emergency happens and.. Hurrah! She can drag a person to safety!
Which reduces a possible exploration into the machinations and downfall of the military's Boy's Club and replaces the message with "Yeah, a woman can physically hold her own" which means that all men will respect women now. Excuse me while my eyes roll.
