Act of Valor

Fact-based story. Superb direction. Painstakingly authentic combat sequences. And a cast led by active-duty Navy SEALs. Wow. This may not be a perfect movie, but it’s a welcome antidote to the cynicism that pervades liberal Hollywood. A keeper for sure.

  1. I joined the Navy to be a SEAL, but was slightly too near-sighted once I finished bootcamp. Have several friends who were with the Teams. Have a lot of respect for them and their job. Looking back, I am thankful to the Lord that I was deep sea salvage though. Hooyah, deep sea!

    1. Act of Valor certainly made me more fully appreciate what the SEALs do – like Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, the film has a deeply ingrained respect for the heroes in our armed forces. And I like that. :)

  2. Josh really wants to see this one.. and now so do I! That’s neat about the actors. Makes it more realistic, I think.

    Thanks for sharing about it!

      1. Oh man! We were gone most of the afternoon, and then bushed when we got home.. it had been a long couple of days. It would have been great if we could have gone! Oh well….
