I had the misfortune of reading a lot of the critics negative reviews and almost decided to pass, but I'm sure glad I didn't. Acting was as good as it's going to be since its active duty seals on the big screen. Script wasn't much better but who cares! I thought the movie was great. Gave me a great sense of pride for my country and the men and women who give their lives in the name of freedom. I was concerned there wasn't going to be enough action scenes with a lot of focus on love/family/etc but there's plenty of action throughout to keep you on the edge of your seat. Good movie now go out and see it! Post your reviews but NO SPOILERS please!

http://www.forourson.us/ Aaron was one of the Seals features in the movie. He was on board the chopper that went down last August. As for the movie whatever anyone can do to show what these heroes go thru and do is ok as long as it doesn't mess with OPSEC/tradecraft or their identities.

I am hearing nothing but good reviews on this film from people who are not on the left and have an anti military agenda. The really interesting thing is that it was all shot on a Canon 5D mk II which is a $3,000 SLR with video capability. Freakingunbelievable.

im a camera guy/photography is one of my big hobbies

its not that unbelivable, that a camera could do that, the lenses they use is what makes the video so nice and sharp, lenses are probably 3 times more than the cost of the DSLR

I went and saw it with my brother in law and his buddy last night. In like the first scene where he tries to do a radio check and gets no response I cracked up as it brought back memories of trying to get radios timed with each other correctly doing a bazillion radio checks before rolling out only to find out one of our guntrucks still couldn't get comms. They kept asking me what certain terminology meant, which everything sounded spot on.

My biggest gripe as a lot of stuff was over stylized - wish they would have shown what IR lasers looked like instead of showing them flashing their visible lasers all over the place but I guess maybe that was to hide the fact how awesome they allow our military to own the night.

These guy's faces are going to be splashed all over the country now. I'm a little surprised that the Pentagon okay'ed it.
And I'm also surprised that no one has brought up the fact that you can take that much 7.62 at close range and still end up only with an arm cast.

02-25-2012, 10:04 AM
That was actually based off of a true story. A SEAL got hit like 20 times and killed like three guys with his P226. They actually toned the real story down for the movie!

That was probably my favorite part, the satisfied "**** you" look he had after he waxed the dude with his pistol.

I went to see it yesterday. While it is clear a few of the actors are not thespians, I think as a fictionalized account of real stories, what made it a much better film than can be produced by Hollywood, is primarily due to it's honesty about the action sequences, the comradeship these men share and sense of seriousness that isnt found in depictions in typical Hollywood fare.

LOL BS... that's so over the top it's not even funny. Yeah he got shot 20 times spit out the slugs and proceded to rip open his shirt revealinbg a big S right? I've never heard of a Team being deployed on that many missions in such a short time to tackle one plot also. I mean really oh yeah and they planned it all themselves on sand table moments before the HALO too right?

From what I have read and heard the actors are not Seals, the actual Seals do the "stunt" work, the action scenes where their faces are not recognizable, they coordinated the special effect (explosions) a.s.o. The guys that are the characters are not Seals and are actors. I will be going to watch it tonight with my wife, looking forward to it. My brother-in-law is a SEAL, can't wait to hear what he has to say about it when and if he goes to see it.

Never read much Medal of Honor citations, eh? There's instances of soldiers being hit ridiculous amounts of times, yet they keep going on fighting and pulling their comrades to safety, ect. When you throw in the fact that he's wearing level four plates, if his plates managed to stop those hits and his guy got TQs on his extremities he'd have a good chance of surviving.

Its a movie, yes, but the scenes do coordinate with real ops. Guy that got shot "20"' times(not sure how many really) is STG2 Matthew Axelson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Axelson). Ended up taking a bunch of the b@$tards with him using his sidearm.

02-25-2012, 9:57 PM
Just got back from seeing it, wow! So the acting as so-so, the realism more than made up for it. There were several moments that stuck out as a very accurate portrayal of being in the service.

I loved the attention to detail, especially all the sounds of birds and bugs in the jungle scenes, I could almost smell the dank humid air.

<possible minor spoiler below>


Anybody else notice that not one of the bad guys was middle eastern? Think it was a PC decision? But it does show that the jihad mentality is not limited to the middle east, and that our enemies can come from any country.

spoliler alet - bloopers IMHO

1. no flash bangs, they would not make entry in sevral scenes without some flash -bang grenedes
2. red lasers at night - they would use IR lasers at night which only they could se with NV equipment, not red lasers
3. flashlights inthe milk factory - they would use NV only as the FL give them away
4. medics- the scene inthe back of the pick up - the inured would be getting complete medical care and attention, not just "hey buddy stay with us" same for the other injured.
5. the moon. they would jump or infiltrate when there was no moon if possible.
6. HALO - if you jump from 30,000 feet you need 5 minutes of pure O2 before you

otherwise excellent film. jump,

Saw it tonight. I liked the action, not so much the talking. The acting was bad.... They tried to have serious moments that looked so forced. One of my favorite scenes was the sub, no action, no talking just the sub in the ocean. Some of the "cover" in the movie would not stop AK fire, but movie magic it did. Over all a fairly good recruitment video! I will say I wanted to go shooting reallllly bad after seeing it.

Keep in mind they can't disclose our actual tactics and equipment in a movie. If they did, all our enemies worldwide would be clued in. So of course you'll see inaccuracies and fictional stuff. I just wish they'd keep it real on the stuff they can show. It doesn't make it any less entertaining to keep it real in those situations. Sometimes I hate artistic license in Hollywood.

IMO it is a bit too violent for a 7 year old, and there are definitely some F-bombs dropped throughout the movie. I just think it would be harder for you to enjoy it to it's full potential if you were with a youngster and worried about them. Just my .02

No. Rosy Sanchez is the most recognizable actress, of the four actual Hollywood types. The "team" are actual SEALs, actually acting, actually starring.

You can't train some Hollywood leftist soft belly puke the correct ways of infil, exfil, riverine assault, HALO, silent patrolling, weapons handling, and tactics and make it anything close to looking real. You can, however, train a SEAL to act :)

Many scenes, including all of the riverine assault, use live ammo. River patrol craft Miniguns blazing the truck? Real bullets, real impact, real destruction.

We saw it this afternoon. Glad we don't listen to biased reviews from the liberal crowd. Movie started and kept moving forward till the end. Well done! Only downside was it made me feel as if I was having a very uneventful weekend in comparison. LOL. Thank God!

The acting was appropriate for the story line in my opinion. No up staging, every man was a star in his own right. Off and on camera they were who they are.

Excellent camera work, effects, editing, sound track all driving home the fact that there are still to this day Spartan types that go in and get the tough and dirty jobs done while we enjoy what is left of a dwindling freedom at home.

Took mental notes as a basic tactics refresher and equipment check list. Being a sound engineer and enjoying a good number of years in the movie industry the effects through a good system were well done and creditable.

Proud to know two names at the end of the movie. We left the theater feeling proud, pumped up a tad with a greater sense of patriotic duty and potential risks here at home and abroad.

Good required watching in every High School before we lose this generation. The opposition hates this type of movie. JB-QVA

It is Rated R for a good reason.

I took my daughter (20), to see it. She had never seen an action/military movie before. She was pretty blown away & cried a bit. A scene left me teary eyed as well. When the movie was over, we just sat there in awe. We didn't leave till the clean up crew arrived & everyone else had already left the theatre.

Yeah the acting was so-so, but the story & action were great.

SEALS can't act. That much was proven. But it was a good movie and I really enjoyed it. The scene where they put the tridents on the casket is accurate, that's a SEAL tradition. They take them right off of their uniforms. It's a very emotional sight.

Manolito
02-28-2012, 7:12 AM
Seals do a lot of things including infiltration into foreign cultures. Say what you want about acting but their life depends on their ability to act. I thought it was portrayed very well. Possibly bringing reality to the screen is what you are saying is bad acting.
Realism in catching the snipers kill so it doesn't make a splash or loud noise is realism.

When I hear critics carry on about a movie I have to remember they have never created anything just critisize other peoples work.

Well done showing the Sub and boats these people serve a valuable task. If they showed the thousand people in the background putting together little pieces of intel trying to make a true assesment nobody would go see the movie. Not a single M=4 on full auto very controlled fire rates not what you expect in a movie.

I will buy it when it comes out and watch it many times for enjoyment and respect to a country that has volunteers protecting us while we sleep. I served on the ground in a war and this is the first movie to show tracers that looked real to me.

Respectfully,
Bill

I loved this movie not only due to the action but what the movie represents. I was honored to take my grandfather, a vet from the Pearl Harbor Days with me to see this.

VERY disappointed with the movie.

The movie had great scenes but, The camera was too close to the action the Entire length of the movie, and I am not a fan of a shaky camera through out the whole film.

Also the camera never paused to get a good glimpse of the gun porn or action scenes. I feel as though the camera angles and work was what ruined this film.

Very good movie. Showed that this countries true warriors really are human. I can't say enough good things about what operators do. They are tough and determined. That's what makes our forces the best. IMHO what is being overlooked is the plot of the movie. It's real, and they are here. Yes it is that easy for the bad guys to get here. Just a matter of time.

I took the wife and we both loved it. I served in the Army, my wife in the Navy. God bless our troops and the things they do to keep us safe.

Quibbling about errors or suposed tactical details they got wrong misses the point. The movie provides civilians with some insight into military life as well as a heaping spoonful of MoTo to those who have served or even are thinking about serving.

Would this be a good movie to take my 7 year old to watch, or is it too much violence?

Without spoilering the thread, I would say 'no', simply because of one of the first few scenes that sets up the evilness of the terrorists is likely to be pretty disturbing to a 7 year old.

Well, my 7 year old is WAYYY too sensitive for this film regardless, but I really don't think it's for kids that young; there's also scenes of a woman in distress that I think are probably a bit too intense for young kids. I think the 'R' rating is appropriat, but of course, you know your kids better than anyone else.

Why not see it yourself first, and then if you think it's OK, take them the 2nd time? That way the filmmakers get an extra few bucks too, and I don't think that'd be a bad thing :) Hell, the minigun/swiftboat stuff is worth the price of admission!

During the scroll of KIA's -

Someone called "AttenHUT / Present AHHms"

About 20 of us saluted til the complete credits ended.

Nobody in the crowd moved or made a sound until he called out "Order AHHms"

Still brings a lump in my throat thinking about the respect everyone showed those KIAs -

From a theatrical stand point it sucked. Obviously the shoot-'em up stuff was fun, but the acting pretty much ruined it for me, especially as someone mentioned, the guy who narrated the movie.

I know SEALS doing the acting was supposed to be one of the selling points, but I feel it hurt the movie. I think using some no-name actors as the main players woulda helped it flow more.

It was hard not to like the boat stuff!

Saw it this week.

Acting be damned, it's about the story.

Seemed to have something in my eyes a few times.

Worth it.

I'm almost done with Clancy's Against All Enemies, and this movie has similarities with the book. But then again, Clancy's name is in the closing credits.

Great movie, love all those spent shell casings.

The sub scene as well as the HALO jump was incredible.

www.3minutesout.org is a charity set up for my friend and brother in arms, JT Tumilson. He was one of the men that died in the helo crash on 8-6-2011.

LOL BS... that's so over the top it's not even funny. Yeah he got shot 20 times spit out the slugs and proceded to rip open his shirt revealinbg a big S right? I've never heard of a Team being deployed on that many missions in such a short time to tackle one plot also. I mean really oh yeah and they planned it all themselves on sand table moments before the HALO too right? Just saying it's a movie ment for recruiting purposes let's not get carried away ...:facepalm:

There really was a SEAL who was shot 27 times, and still managed to kill all four of his assailants. He survived. You can find his story here: http://parazynski.com/blog/2010/07/wounded-but-unyielding-on-mount-rainier-14411-overcome-everything/

Scroll all the way down to the last paragraph to read his story.

Every act of valor in the movie was based on a real event. *SPOILER* The guy who was shot in the eye (SEAL Ryan Job, who later died during a facial reconstruction surgery), the SEAL jumping on a grenade (SEAL Michael Monsoor).

best line in the movie for me was "The SH*T Bucket is full!" Master Chief

The line was actually, "The sh*t filter's full."

It was ok for me, the action was great, but it seemed to drag on too often. I will probably watch it again when it comes to cable, but won't buy the dvd.

Michael Monsoor is the SEAL they were having a wake for at McP's when Chris Kyle (American Sniper) knocked Jesse "The Body" Ventura on is butt for being disrespectful of a fallen SEAL in front of his family. (nice run-on sentence, Razz)

Finally got out to see this movie. Thought it was good (bad acting was expected). Even my wife liked it- and was crying at the end.

I knew from the minute LT told them about his new baby that he was gonna buy the farm. Other than that, good action with mediocre acting. I loved the guy who played "Senior" though!

I finally saw it last night and really enjoyed it. Yeah, acting wasn't the greatest, but these guys are the real deal, not actors. This movie made me think of all the people who whine how hard and stressful their jobs are. One of my favorite scenes, was of the two gun boats opening fire in that jungle.
