Act of Valor (2012)
meh, good action, but story line lacking and forced
Even with a mediocre review, have to admit that I left the movie proud to be an American realizing I should never complain about my job (most of us have it easy and don't realize what goes on behind the scenes to keep us safe). Yes, the action scenes are great. and I do have an extra appreciation for real SEALs used in the movie. However, there were scenes where the dialog was so forced, that it took away from the effect. I also felt the story line was too basic and contrived. For a timeline of being "downrange" for months, I felt that the non-stop assignments were being pushed on us a moviegoers such that it felt like only 3 days passed for the SEALs with no sleep, and constant engaged deployment. Couldn't we get just a taste of downtime while they are traveling across the globe? You know the usual scene of soldiers playing cards?
