  • Act Of Valor Is Win

    Just got done watching the midnight release of Act of Valor. Oh my word! Great movie. Action was solid, not over the top in typical Hollywood fashion but very believable. The story line was very straight forward I found it easy to keep up with what was going on. It started a little slow, building a relationship with the team and the audience. But once the fighting started I was on the edge of my seat rooting for every kill.

    If you are planning on seeing this movie do so! If you weren't do it anyway! You won't regret it. Simply amazing. One of the best military films I have ever seen.

    Anyone else care to weigh in?

      The damn critics man. 88% of users liked it. Lol. It was a good movie. I enjoyed the heck out of it

        I am looking forward to seeing this film. I followed your link Mantis and read a couple of the reviews. They seemed to be expecting some Oscar winning acting from some SEAL's, I think, like Dredge, that the user score is much more applicable when it comes to a movie like this. If after I watch I disagree with this post I will correct myself though.

          I think you hit the nail on the head hillbilly. They were expecting typical Hollywood super explosions and fire balls and Denzel Washington with Channing Tatum. What they got was a realistic depiction of navy seal operation. They probably don't know what to do with it.

            Wow, what a huge discrepancy between the critics and the audience. That makes me want to see it even more!

              Easy rule of thumb

              If critics hate it = fantastic movie

              If critics love it = bring a pillow

              Taking my son to see it now:D

                      Shakes 'Fist of Jealousy' in general direction of those who are able to see it now and raises the 'middle finger of insurrection' at the concept of 'regional releases'. Looking forward to seeing this.

                        Haha, best quote ever.

                        Very much the same feeling as Wicks on this one, its definately on my list of films to see.

                          Yeah, see this is one of those movies where I could watch it and not care much about the 'cinema' aspect and watch it for what I'm seeing.

                          If its done half as well as you've said I think I'll go watch it. Doubt I could bring my girl to it though :L

                            @Ytman - it blew my expectations away. And they were high when I went in. There is nothing thats over the top or unbelievable. You really get pulled into it. It has action, explosions, gun fire, and a few funny as comments. It really is just such an amazing movie that everyone should be required to go watch it. :)

                              I would have to echo Dredges comment on the movie. I saw it with a buddy and my brother. My buddy is not really into movies like this, BUT he absolutly loved this movie. My brother and myself really enjoyed it as well. It is one where I will either have to go see it again later, or see it several more times when it comes to BlueRay.

                              Action was great. Would have wished to seen a little more "traning" first and then a couple of more missions but what was put together in that movie far exceeded mine, and I think I had higer ones than Dredge!!!!

                              Great movie people, go out and see it.
