At the beginning of the film, there was a shot which is supposed to be in the Philippines, but if you look closely, some store names are printed in the Indonesian or Malay language. Also in the Philippines, there are no Buddhist spirit houses in any school grounds. The film showed a typical Thai/Cambodian school with spirit houses. The school uniforms were also typical of Thai/Cambodian students. See more »
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.

Excellent movie. If you remember that these are not paid actors you will appreciate how well this movie was made. Really brings things into perspective of how the Seals operate. Fast action, lots of shooting and explosions, and the first person shooter game feel is quite interesting too. Warning, if you are seeing a movie about war, Navy Seals and shooting people, DON'T be surprised to see people being shot, blood and various other aspects of war violence (had to say that since someone that went with me was surprised). I will definitely be buying this as soon as it is available. But just like another reviewer said, go see it in the theaters, you won't be disappointed.
