Trivia

During the beach scene, the families of the SEALs are their actual family members. Also during the scene when they are saying goodbye to their families, when Chief Dave about to leave his daughter, you can see the difference in her teeth between scene. In the beach scene, her middle teeth were closed and the next scene her teeth we're split. This was due to the Beach scene and the deployment scene were shot a year and a half apart; due the Seals deployment cycles. See more »

Goofs

Mexico, the first (GMC) dump-truck hits a car located in the street parked to stop it. After the crash you can see actual damages on the right side, the light and the metallic bumper of the truck. In subsequent scenes the side, the light and the bumper have no damage at all. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Lieutenant 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.

Great movie
19 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the chance to screen this movie months ago, though the movie was in the final stage and needed a few tweaks I couldn't have been more happy with how it turned out. I am a son of a true Navy Seal, the stories that I heard my father tell when growing up all seemed to be written from a script. There hasn't been a movie that has portrayed the life of a Seal and his family that accurately points out how hard things really are. I am very happy that I had the chance to view this film, it has enabled me to see some of the good and bad situations my father and his Seal friends could have and have been involved in; along the precession that is required of them. For those that have voted this down because of the acting, you knew going into it who the actors are, also this is not a movie about acting, it's a story about the lives of Navy Seals, it just so happens that they get to show you great action clips of what things are really like.
