Went to see it on opening night in NY, was very disappointed with the lack of enthusiasm and attendance for this movie. Unfortunately, some people only go to see a movie based on a critic review. I cannot disagree more. Go see this movie! It is a very small insight as to what a SeAL team does, for obvious reasons. I read a review in Newsday by Rafer Guzman in the part 2 section of Saturday's paper and the reviewer just doesn't get it! With a review saying "they can kill, but they can't act". REALLY!? They get paid to keep our country safe, not to entertain us, you small minded arrogant jack wagon! I thought it was absolutely fantastic. 5 stars if you are a patriot and want to have a small inside look into SeAL team ops!!! I recommend highly!!! Not a movie critic :)

The live fire action scenes are amazing. The movie is a must-see purely because of that. The non-action scenes and acting in general are obviously sub-par, but after all, these guys are real-life heroes, not actors, so they deserve some credit on that front.

Good movie for the action but as with some people who do the job the acting is a little OTT

Worth the money, the theatre was full for a matinee and at the end people clapped. It was a good war movie being the actual actions that seal team 7 would take but the actors are not actors and gave a sense of that, it was almost a promotion of joining the navy but as my son is joining the Air Force as you read this i was a little motivated as I'm sure were many of the kids off school or the veterans. Great if your a vet or intending on joining the millitary but if you want depth or acting even to a quality of Bruce Willis or Arnie your not going to find it here...still I enjoyed it. Grade:- B+ (for what its advertised as it fills the spot, but there are no oscar worthy actors in it)

Hat's off to the Navy Seals, they are amazing guys. Good movie, Hollywood finally got something accurate. Great action, makes you feel like you are there. It gives you an idea what they put with. I am grateful we have people like that to protect us. It is a touching movie, about sacrifice. The acting was O.K. but not so great . It's still the best action military movie. It's a story about hero's. Worth seeing. Hat's off to all our military.
