Quite possibly the worst SEAL movie ever.
3 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me start off by saying I hate writing reviews like this. I went into this movie knowing it was something of a lower budget "indie" flick supposedly based on a true story, but bought a new copy off the internet as soon as it came out anyways. I'd seen a trailer of it on-line, and it looked pretty decent. What my wife and I got was not only the worst SEAL movie ever, but just a flat out BAD MOVIE.

Without going into too much detail or spoiling anything, this movie deals with the first gulf war back in 1991. There are so many continuity errors in this film, I don't know where to begin. For example, it shows regular Army soldiers wearing new "ACU" cameo pattern uniforms that they didn't even have back then. There was also another time when some of the SEALs are putting some of their weapons into a bag. You could see the orange tip of one of the rifles, indicating it was actually a plastic air soft rifle. There's simply too many things to list.

I thought the acting was pretty bad, not the worst, but it wasn't that great. I don't think the Naval Special Warfare community was represented very well by this film. I'm in the military so maybe I'm more critical of this movie than others. Be that as it may, I don't think the writers or directors even contacted a real SEAL (or anyone in any branch of any military) at any point during the making of this film. I'm not familiar with the "true" events this movie is based on, but I would highly suggest reading a book about it (if available) instead of watching this movie.

During the film, I kept hearing my wife "sigh," indicating her discontent with the movie. She'd say, "I'm trying to stay focused on the story, but...(sigh)." I totally agree with her. The movie jumped around a lot and was loaded with stock footage of fighter jets, bad special effects, and terrible continuity.

If you're a die-hard SEAL movie guy like me, you'll probably watch this movie despite my searing review. But you've been warned! If I could get 90 minutes of my life back, I would love to. I usually get a little enjoyment out of bad movies, but this was beyond terrible, and didn't even have that "funny" enjoyable aspect that many bad movies have. Keep in mind, this review is based on THE MOVIE, not the actual events or the guys that were involved in them.

Bottom line: Save yourself the time and skip this movie. Seriously. I don't think you can comprehend how bad it is until you actually see it. Watch at your own risk!
