This is the Real Deal,
This review is from: Act of Valor (DVD)
I saw this movie in a free screening prior to release. It is much more than a movie--it is about as real to life as any SEAL movie ever produced. This movie is most impressive because of its realistic action. Secondly, it is impressive because it is a non-typical Hollywood product, i.e. not inherently anti-American or politically correct in storyline or undertones. Although some may remark that the acting is weak, in actuality the fact that the cast members are not professional actors makes it more real even if it is not as polished. The plot is fine although somewhat formulaic. The bottom line is that this movie is special because it is about as real as it gets. Forget Charlie Sheen's movie, "GI Jane," or Marcinko's books--this movie is the real deal.
