Great movie for Father's Day for older kids, Mom and Dad.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Military/Veterans; Society; TV/Movies
KEYWORDS: military; seals
Just watched this movie on Blue Ray. It is definitely a great adventure movie. This would make a great movie to watch with your Dad or husband today (not for little kids though).

These men are so impressive and the whole idea of using Real Navy Seals and Live Ammo is unique.

Besides the movie, the DVD also has interviews with some of the Navy seals. I thought the most impressive was AJay, a former immigrant to this country. He overcame a lot of obstacles to become a Navy Seal. He was 34 years old in Boot camp, having obtained an age waiver.

He had a small role in the movie, but make sure to listen to his interview on the DVD.

They also had some interesting deleted scenes, you could watch. I wish they had left in AJay’s deleted scene where he talked about food while on the mission.

All these men are so impressive. The movie is well worth purchasing to add to your movie collection.

I suggest an uninterrupted beer-fest watching the 400 @ Michigan Speedway. JMHO

Saw it while it was in the theatres and absolutely loved it.

Don't think I've ever thought so highly of a "movie" before. I put "movie" in quotes because I just don't qualify Act of Valor as a typical hollywood "movie."

It quit showing, the day I planned to see it in the movies.
I'm glad it made it DVD and Blue Ray.

The Critics hated it and the movie goers loved it. I think they are afraid patriotism and sacrifice to our country may be contagious.

Right on! Watched it last night on PPV and it was worth it to me. Kind of abstract at the start about what was going on but by the third sequence it was quite understandable. Sad thing is that what was happening is all to plausible and we just sit on our collective asses and wait for the next shoe to drop. We are blessed that there are individuals who have the courage to do what these guys do to keep us safe. When I joined in ‘67 weren’t they still “frogmen” at that time? Can’t remember it’s been so long. LOL!

Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
