I’ll say this much about Act of Valor: It’s the closest you can come to experiencing a military mission from the perspective of a Navy SEAL without actually enlisting.
See what I mean. I loved this movie, it was so well done. and it gets bad reviews. I mean they had actual soldiers acting better than a lot of Hollywood actors. Sure the script could use some help here and there, but it was well done. Have you ever seen a stealth mission like that at all in any movie? Have you seen them fire live fire rounds right over the people they are filming? Not only that the entire theater was packed and everyone was crying at one point, even guys were getting choked up. That's a lot better than people laughing at Chronicle trying to be serious lol
