Act of Valor ~ (Navy SEALs – Sea, Air, Land…Hollywood)

An unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking, Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs in a film like no other in Hollywood’s history.  A fictionalized account of real life Navy SEAL operations, Act of Valor features a gripping story that takes audiences on an adrenaline-fueled, edge-of-their-seat journey.

Act of Valor follows a Navy SEAL squad on a covert mission to recover a kidnapped CIA agent, which 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, and in the process takes down a complex web of terrorist cells determined to strike America at all costs.

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.  The filmmakers had unprecedented Naval access resulting in never-before-seen military operation scenes which are composited from actual events in the lives of the men appearing in the film and their comrades.

Here is the Extended trailer for the movie –

  1. Saw the previews on Fox maybe a month ago which interviewed the two behind the project. Although the story is fictional they were unable to use actors, incapable of performing necessary stunts. Retired and on leave SEALs participated anonymously. Wait for the news media uproar.

  3. I’m not taking away from what the Seals do, but there were more than just Navy Seals in the whole Bin laden take down. Maybe it will be an interesting movie.

    • David is absolutely right. It takes a lot of vaulable assets to conduct such an operation; both military and civilian. Because of the nature and confidentiality of many missions, we really don’t know what and who goes into an operation such as the one’s the SEALs conduct. Just be assured that we have some very, very good people wearing all the uniforms of our military, and civilian operatives from various agencies and organizations, taking the action necessary to gain victories towards our freedoms and liberties as a Nation.

    • I wanted to wait to see this movie with my son. He is now home on spring break from Duquesne University; by the way, he is also a soon-to-be Ensign in the Navy. We plan to see it tomorrow. I will update you with my review after I see the movie.

      • Congratulations to your son! Is he in the NROTC program; if so, did he complete ship selection or is he bound for an other-than-Surface community?

        Hope you enjoy the show, and I look forward to hearing about it.

      • My son is presently a senior at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. He is enrolled in a masters program for Physician Assistant. He had a shot at the United States Naval Academy, but no congressional appointment was available, and he declined the offer to go to the USNA Prep School. When he chose Duquesne, the Navy offered him an ROTC scholarship. However, he would have had to cross-affiliate at Carnegie Mellon to fulfill his obligation; academics at Duquesne, ROTC at Carnegie. His academic load, and the challenge of his program, were too challenging to conduct both his schooling and ROTC; he declined. About a year ago, he began to talk to the Navy about the Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP), offered by the Navy Medicine Professional Development Center (NMPDC) Medical Accessions Department. This program will pay for his final two years of his program; year 5 and 6. He will go to Officer Development School (ODS) in Newport, RI, in January of 2014.

      • I’m sure you must be very proud of him – as you know, our medical corps is incredible. I look forward to hearing more about his successes.

    • My son and I saw it yesterday afternoon. It is incredible and powerful. You must go see it. It starts out slow, and you have to pay attention to how the plot unfolds. But, the movie is good. And, if anyone in the United States does not think that we can be hit on our shores again, they need to see this movie. It is not a Hollywood plot. It can easily become real.
