“A wonderful movie depicting our troops in a good way”
Ditto that!! We went to see it yesterday to a packed house. It was great!
Since that's almost word for word what I said in the thread about the movie yesterday, I'm going to assume that's what you are referring to. Can you honestly sit there and say that (looking the actors who played the bad guys up)Calderon, Cespedes, and Cottle turned in anything but sub-B grade performances?
If you like the movie for the message, that's fine, just say so. But please, let's not pretend that it's an artistic achievement because of politics.
I said Friday if you'll sit there and watch Stallone and Chuck Morris in a movie then these SEALS deserve Academy Awards for their performances.
Perhaps that's the difference between us. Outside of Rocky, I never could stand Stallone. Never cared for Chuck either. For that matter I never liked Arnold outside of his sci-fi movies. Segal was the only one I could watch, and that was only when he was showcasing real aikido, or working with Danial Inosanto on bringing real kali to the screen. I guess I'm not a fan of action movies.
The guys couldn’t get more real since they are the real deal. Everything was real. The guys did a great job for acting neophytes. Top notch.
