Act of Valor - Staring Real Life Navy SEALs

As we all know, I am married into the military.
Marc being National Guard, I have so much respect for him and his "brothers."  The military is a family in its own and the fact that I am part of it, I am very proud of.
That being said, there is a new movie coming out and you know I will be telling you about it.
Have you heard of Act of Valor?
As soon as I heard of it, I knew it was going to be one that I wanted to see.
Why?  Because I like seeing how our military is portrayed, and because I like telling others about it, so that if they do not personally have military connections, they might see a glimpse into what all goes on.
Now, some of it is totally absurd and you can tell it is all fake... but others are right on.

We had the chance to watch Act of Valor and I really liked it.

It isn't one that you can say "oh, it was a great movie!" but it is one that lets you see what really goes on and how things really happen.  No, not a breach of security or anything, but it does let you see how things go.

I am not going to give anything away, but it starts with the NAVY SEALs and their family enjoying time together.. just like most families.. Then, we follow them on a CIA mission.

The thing about this movie?  
It stars actual real life Navy Seals along with actors!  

Here is the synopsis: 


The only easy day was yesterday. In the Bandito Brothers' ACT OF VALOR, an elite military force, portrayed by active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs, carries out an impossible mission with insane courage and incredible teamwork in one of the most gripping and emotionally charged movies of the year. Landing June 5th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the ACT OF VALOR Blu-ray and DVD is loaded with extras including several deleted scenes, interviews with Navy SEALs, director's commentary, exclusive featurettes, including a look at the real bullets and tactics used during filming, and much more! ACT OF VALOR was theatrically released by Relativity Media on February 24th and became the No. 1 movie in America in its debut.

An unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking, ACT OF VALOR stars a group of active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs, alongside actors Roselyn Sanchez, Alex Veadov, Jason Cottle and Nester Serrano, in a film like no other in Hollywood's history. A fictionalized account of real life Navy SEAL operation, ACT OF VALOR features a riveting story that takes audiences on an adrenaline-fueled, edge-of-their-seat journey.

When a mission to recover a kidnapped CIA operative unexpectedly results in the discovery of an imminent, terrifying global threat, an elite team of highly trained Navy SEALs must immediately embark on a heart-stopping secret operation, the outcome of which will determine the fate of us all.

ACT OF VALOR combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the-minute battlefield technology, and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure film-showcasing the skills, training and tenacity of the greatest action heroes of them all: real Navy SEALs.

Produced and directed by former Baja 1000 champion Mike "Mouse" McCoy and former stuntman Scott Waugh, and written by Kurt Johnstad (300), the ACT OF VALOR Blu-ray and DVD arrives June 5th just in time for Father's Day.

  1. I am also a wife of a National Guardsman. We went to see the movie and loved it. My husband doesn't like most military movies but we are both in agreement that we want this movie when it comes out.

  2. My husband has been wanting to see this!

  3. Being a mom of two Marines I am usually scared to watch military based movies but this looks great and emotional.

  4. I actually did know that they used real Navy Seals as extras in the movie-That's pretty darn cool!

    I'm not huge into military movies like this, but I do like to watch them just in case I'll like them :)

  5. I am a bit leary when it comes to "War" films, if they are re-enacted to well I end up crying and blubbering like a fool, missing most of the movie.

    The ones that aren't I usually don't care for. It is interesting that they chose to use both actors and real military men for the movie.
