This is an amazing movie, more so because it is based on similar true events and is acted in by actual navy seals. Very inspiring and very exciting, edge-of-the-seat entertainment. Violent, as you would expect, and some difficult torture depictions.

The new movie "Act of Valor" is riveting from beginning to end. Any faults in camera shooting (I didn't notice any!) are secondary because the viewer is drawn so effectively into the story. Having real Navy Seals act the parts made some dialog slightly stilted, but any question of sincerity of the actors was minimized by the emotion that was successfully portrayed through clever camera shooting and supporting actors. And the capabilities of our military are stunning!
I couldn't help but applaud at the end of the movie for the very apparent sacrifices our Seals and other well-trained U.S. military people -- and their families -- make so the rest of us can live in security and safety. The movie also pointedly brought to mind the character of such men who are willing to not only train to the point of exhaustion and the extreme limits of the human body but are also willing to give their lives on their missions. Such honorable men deserve the utmost of our gratitude.

This was a very good movie with lots of action. I was very surprised by the acting qualities of the Navy Seals. They weren't great but did a credible job of acting. I felt very proud of the services they have performed for our country and saddened that some have to die to protect us. I would highly recommend this movie to every American.

This movie was action packed and a bullet a minute but too much talking when they weren't involved in a mission they sounded like a bunch of women trying to get in touch with their feelings. After being in the military in one of the support groups that came in contact with operators let me tell you that most of the lingo was clean up and that took away some of the genuine feel between team members. I'm just saying
