Act of Valor (2012) Poster



[last lines]

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.

[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.

Chief Dave: That last night at home, you think about how you could of been a better dad, a better husband, that bedtime story you should of read, or that anniversary you forgot. You don't expect your family to understand what you're doing. You just hope they understand you're doing it for them, and when you get home you hope you can pick-up right where you left off.

Senior Chief Miller: [interrogating terrorist] Shit filter's full.

Chief Dave: [letter to Engel's infant son] Remember, you have warrior's blood in your veins. The code that made your father who he was is the same code that'll make you a man he would admire, respect. Put your pain in a box. Lock it down. Like those people in the paintings your father liked, we are men make up of boxes, chambers of loss and triumph. Of hurt and hope and love. No one is stronger or more dangerous than a man who can harness his emotions. His past.

[three salute shots fired]

Chief Dave: Use it as fuel, as ammunition. As ink to write the most important letter of your life.

Chief Dave: Senior Chief. I couldn't really tell you much about him, other than I'd rather take a knife into a gunfight than have to be interrogated by him.

Chief Dave: [about RPG sticking out of partner] Good thing that was a dud, I might've gotten hurt.

Kerimov: [showing explosive vest] Believe me, there are few weapons in the world which a single man can operate that are more deadly.

Christo: You know, from time to time, I get to see my old friends from my old life. And it's always, always disappointing. Some become assholes, others boring, and I can't believe I tried to get them in bed all those years ago.

Walter Ross: In most cases, officers get tactical partners. Langley sets me up with some sort of SCRABBLE hustler.

Lisa Morales: SCRABBLE Yoda, OK? Get it right.

Chief Dave: [getting ready to jump] I tell you what, the only thing better than this right here is being a dad. Except for that whole changing diaper thing.
