Quotes

[first lines]
LT Rorke: Before my father died, he said the worst thing about growing old was that other men stopped seeing you as dangerous. I've always remembered that, how being dangerous was sacred, a badge of honor. You live your life by a code, an ethos. Every man does. It's your shoreline. It's what guides you home. And trust me, you're always trying to get home.

Shame on you, America
16 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is by far the most awful movie I've seen in the past 5 years. If you're a 13-year-old boy who plays video games all day long and drinks Mountain Dew and the only thing you value in a movie is explosions, then you might enjoy it. Otherwise, it's the worst acting I have come across in some time and the "dialogue" completely destroys the movie. You simply can't take any of the scenes seriously after one of the SEALs starts talking. I was actually rooting for the terrorists 3 minutes into the movie, hoping that they would kill all the SEALs and end my pain.

I'm honestly worried about people who enjoy this movie because they clearly don't have the wherewithal to understand what a cliché is and why story tellers shouldn't use them. You think anyone cares if real SEALs are used in a movie to enhance the "realism"? Nope. That's like saying that using real guns in a movie would enhance the "realism." Why don't all movies do that? It's absurd. (Insert 'The Crow' jokes here) Hires the SEALs as advisers and hire some real actors. Worked for Saving Private Ryan. I saw that movie with a WWII vet in the theaters on opening day and he said it looked and sounded exactly like how he remembered. No bad acting there, just lots and lots of Oscars.

Shame on you America, for making this movie and for telling people to go see it.
