Act of Valor

This movie stars a group of real active-duty Navy SEALs on a mission to rescue a kidnapped CIA operative that get involved in stopping a terrorist plot against the U.S.  I’ve heard criticism about the acting, but I’ve also heard people that think it’s great they didn’t have actors and had actual SEALs in the movie.  I thought the story was very powerful and intense and made up for the acting!  And it was VERY emotional!!!  Not sure if everyone would like it, though – there was a lot of blood, some torture, and a LOT of shooting and killing!  It doesn’t matter if it’s women or children or whoever.  It was just showing how merciless all of that can be, but was still disturbing.  But then, it was trying to be realistic and not sugarcoat everything, so in that way, I would say it definitely succeeded!  If you want to see a movie that shows a realistic view of what the military does for our country and the sacrifices they have to make, you won’t want to miss this one!
