    I am not an opinion writer, but an objective journalist for BizPac Review. That being said, I would like to take the rare liberty of sharing something that touched me unexpectedly as a Marine mom, and frankly, as a human being. I took one of my sons to see the movie, “Act of Valor,” last night and covered my eyes though most of the gory parts. The actors are not really actors, but actual Navy Seals, so there will be absolutely no Academy Awards given here. Trust me. In addition to the overwhelming emotions of pride, respect, honor and utter...

    Star of TV’s Parenthood, Dax Shepard, compared the pro-U.S. military film that stars actual Navy SEALs, Act of Valor to Adolf Hitler's Triumph of the Will. On his Twitter feed the one time Ashton Kutcher prank boy from Punk'd wrote: "Saw 'Triumph of the Will' tonight, oh wait, I mean 'Act of Valor' great action." Apparently the reaction to Shepard's obnoxious tweet, comparing this week's #1 movie starring active duty Navy Seals to a Nazi propaganda movie was immediate, as he attempted to walk back his comments. Shepard lamely claimed he was: "not comparing

    Relativity’s R-rated Act Of Valor has stayed No. 1 all weekend. It’s the the Bandito Brothers’ independently financed low-budget U.S. Navy fighting force tale using actual SEALs from an original screenplay by Kurt Johnstad (300). (FYI, there was a novelization of that script, “Tom Clancy Presents Act of Valor”, written by Dick Couch and George Galdorsi and released in paperback by Clancy’s publisher. Relativity acquired the rights to the project last June for $13 million and a $30 million in prints and advertising commitment - the biggest money paid for a finished film with an unknown cast at that time.

    Finally, a 21st century movie that doesn’t portray our military as corrupt, stupid, confused torturers who murder innocent babies. Act of Valor, which opened this weekend, features active (and anonymous) Navy SEALs in the re-creation of real events that showcase our crème de la crème rescuing our operatives and crushing our enemies in an OMG type of way. I’ve got two words for the manner in which our boys were depicted in this flick … Sa-lute! If I were a wannabe enemy of the U.S.A. (foreign or domestic) I’d be crapping my cargo pants (or tunic) after viewing Act of...

    US defense officials did not find out about the movie until after the fact, causing consternation at the Pentagon, which has an office that vets scripts and negotiates cooperation deals with Hollywood producers. Although troops have appeared in movies before, such as "Black Hawk Down," this film ventures into uncharted territory, possibly jeopardizing the anonymity that the special forces have sought to safeguard. "It's one thing to be filmed parachuting out of a plane, but it's another thing to be parachuting and land on the red carpet," a defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told AFP. Premiering on...
