many years ago on tv. I didn`t expect it to be so good, so i was suprised. I like this kind of film.
Picture Quality: 4/5
I think it looked good. I see it has
has only a MPEG-2 encode on a 25 GB disc, but i still think it`s good.
Yes, it would have looked better using a encode like MPEG-4 and 50 GB disc, but i don`t expect them to use
that and re-release it again. I think the colours and details looks pretty sharp and detailed. It was good
enough for me.
Audio Quality: 4/5
I think the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 had mixed results. I think the first action scene in the film, where they use
those MP5`s(i believe), sounded best. The gunfire effects had good bass. In the end shootout where they used
AK-47`s, i think the gunfire effects lacked bass. They should had more bass. The explosions coming out of my
subwoofer in this film, impressed me. The music and dialog was good coming from the Center speaker.
The Surround speakers was used for some music and of course used in the action scenes. I heard bullets and
emptied shells, and such in the surround speakers. That Sniper rifle that is used perhaps 2 times in this film,
was very impressive. I think it had pretty deep bass. I was very suprised by that. Great.
I believe the SEALs deserve the utmost respect and was a bit upset that some parts of the movie, a movie bearing their name, didn't seem to do them justice. Though I don't know how your average Navy SEAL feels about the movie itself; they seem to be very pleased with Michael Biehn's (yay!) portrayal as a Navy SEAL. I read an article (I'm not sure if I'm allowed to cite in a review, an internet search should lead you to it though - fan club) that said the SEALs were excited about the prospect of Mr. Biehn being the narrator for the U.S. Navy UDT/SEAL Museum in Florida's new film. The film (I believe, as I haven't had a chance to visit the museum yet) is running continuously, showing the history and evolution of the United States Navy SEALs. Biehn, honored, narrated it for free. The SEALs seem to feel that Michael Biehn's depictions as a SEAL in "Navy SEALs" and "The Rock" were very accurate and well done. This is further evidenced by the fact that after his part in the museum film was completed, he received a special honor from Rear Admiral E.T. Olsen; he was awarded with a plaque and named Honorary Frogman for Life. This is a real honor since the SEALs say that the Admiral has only done this a few times and rarely gives such glowing compliments to anyone.
So, though the movie has it's faults, and what movie doesn't, it's still a good movie. Give it a try and enjoy if for what it is, a movie. If you're a Michael Biehn fan, it's a must see. Also, though Charlie Sheen's portrayal of a SEAL may not, putting it mildly, be the greatest, don't be too harsh a judge; remember, he's just doing the best he can, which is pretty darn good, with the shoddy part he's given.
For about 120min you will see some awsome action, and you will see a bit of each aspects of a Navy Seal (Sea / Air / Land).
If you want an exact documentary about the Navy Seals, try and grab a National Geographic DVD, maby you will find something there of value...Otherwise if you want a very very good entertaining action movie this is it !
It could have a little bit more of extras... No extras at all!
If it wasn't for that i would give it a full 5 star score!
As to characters, Michael Biehn and Charlie Sheen did very well - if you object to some of it, go back to the writer and director.
Sorry but I missed recognizing Bill Paxton but loved the action [am I mistaken or was the DVD missing some parts that were in the video?]
Charlie Sheen's character - well there is almost one in every movie to provide conflict. A character that must learn by his mistakes - a bit of a smart aleck.
If it does nothing more that encourage you to pray for our guys in combat, then the movie was a sucess. At the very least it is just entertainment if you don't take it too personally.
Hopefully another one just like it will be that much better as we get into better tech. Enjoy, it is not that bad.

The movie I got was supposed to be new. When I went to open it the security seal was broken and there was smudges on the discPublished 8 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is definitely the best SEALS-film of all war films. Top actors (Charlie Sheen, Michael Biehn) make this movie all the better.
