I took my boys to see Act of Valor last night. We really enjoyed it. The movie is shot using an inexpensive camera which makes it interesting, but even more interesting is the fact that they used Navy Seals, the real thing.
The guys do a great job at the action scenes as they are second nature. In one scene the Seals are evacuating a hostage they have rescued and are being pursued by several armed and angry men. In a moment of understatement the Lt. radios his extraction team, “Be advised this is a hot extraction” an understatement if there ever was one. The acting in between is a little strained, but since it is mostly all action (a great guys flick), you don’t notice it.
When the movie was over my youngest, TK, said, “I felt like I should stand and salute or clap”. Well said TK. I recommend taking a group of men and the boys in your life and seeing it. When you do let me know what you think of it.
