Facinating update on the pornography of firepower.
Worth watching,.. if you like action movies.
This is an interesting blend of professional soldiers with professional actors.
The soldiers hold there own.
The actors do too.

But perhaps its not the best mix of talents for making a movie.

Heart pounding griping action and suspense from beginning to the end. A movie that makes viewers stand up to salute our military intelligence, foreign operatives and troops, especially the SEALs.

The acting isn't very good, and there's a bit of propaganda. However, the action scenes are terrific.

The best SEAL movie I have ever seen. The acting wasn't bad considering the fact that the majority of the cast were NOT professional actors. So for all those couldn't get past the acting, cut the SEALs, the SWCCs, the Marines and the Navy in general some MAJOR slack! They're obviously better shooters than they are actors, so be little more respectful and understanding in the light of the sacrifices they made dutifully serving their country. Sure this movie is full of American patriotism but the threats in this movie are very real. No movie is perfect and this certainly has its' mistakes but it's an amazing movie nevertheless. The instrumental music is awesome. The use of live fire in this film was stunning (and hazardous), made it more authentic and the firefights more intense. One thing they should have added to this movie is: "Man hath no greater love then to lay down his life for his fellow man."

(THE STAR RATING DOESN'T WORK--I GIVE THIS MAXIMUM STARS)+++ This is not like fiction feature films. It is so good it’s a rohrschach test for some. The Seals invited 2 guys to film them demonstrating their stuff—some things were softened (torture sequence) and others left out (newest or secret, obviously). But, in essence, this is special forces in action.+++Any complaint about the acting is an example of people’s issues re military or violence. The acting is actually very good. Virtually all roles except a few minor cameos of bad guys are real active duty Seals—and nobody does these guys except these guys. Not a regular film—but, man, that’s GOOD! Real tactics and procedure, real equipment, really fired. Lots of live fire and no Hollywood bs or plastic. The code is living by principles and this probably brings out issues amongst the fake humanitarians out there (if I were on the game-board I’d be an extreme Leftist—I’m just after the truth). +++So much cool stuff—a small drone is thrown up just before an encounter and bad guys escaping or flanking are spotted and eliminated. There’s a sequence where Seals swim underwater to a Sub and quickly are picked up and the Sub is seen diving—all real and just beautiful to behold. Many scenes where a group of Seals recon and form 360 degree cover with rifles drawn. Absolutely gorgeous! It’s all as real as can be filmed (except the advanced, still secret stuff) and performed by amazing cats who at least mostly act from principle. It’s the ruling class and their political puppets who are the bad guys. These are special forces, not the regular soldiers who can be misguided and criminal.+++ If Valor is ‘bad acting’ to some, they should see a therapist. The individual decides how he/she lives their life; and that’s always the case.

We saw this in the theater. It was a solid movie that seemed to be based in reality (unlike most action-type movies).

LT Rorke: Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about his religion. Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life. Beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
