Act of Valor is a story of courage and love for the country. It starts with the story of US Navy SEALs who must embark on a mission to save a CIA agent who is trapped in Yugoslavia. These brave men must use their training and wits to be able to plan the mission’s success. Act of Valor also portrays how these brave soldiers give their lives to ensure the safety of the people and the country. Act Of Valor will surely bring a whole new experience for movie goers when it comes to covert missions in the field. Another interesting fact about Act of Valor is that the directors Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh actually hired active duty Navy SEALs for the film. The directors hoped that these men will be able to bring that much needed punch and authenticity to the story. Here is a short quote from The Daily Rotation about this bold move from the directors: From the opening credits Act of Valor briskly sets its self apart from other war films. This specific war film is more real than the others, which means the emotional punch is supposed to be stronger and the action is supposed to be that much more genuine. They use actual Navy SEALs instead of actors and they use live ammunition and real strategies used by the SEALs to make the film feel more authentic. And it works really damn well. The gunfire is noticeably louder and more forceful, making the action feel threatening. The missions are even setup like something you’d see on the screen while playing Call of Duty (character HUD’s and location markers).
Act Of Valor is written by Kurt Johnstad and produced by Bandito Productions. The real life Navy SEALs that took part in this movie are: Alex Veadov, Roselyn Sanchez, Nestor Serrano and Emilio Rivera. This movie is also starting to earn some buzz from movie critics all over the country. There are critics and movie fans who seem to be looking forward to this new take in the world of war and action by starring real life SEALs. Here is short quote from a movie fan in the United States:
Outstanding, fast moving and entertaining film with great cinematography and an engaging storyline throughout. Do not wait for the DVD release – see it on the big screen, you won’t be sorry.
This film takes the audience right into the world of Navy Seals without any grandiose pretense or affectation. It just tells the story as it is. Unlike some films, one feels that one is in the movie, in the field of action as it happens. You are there, in the action, not just watching it unfold.
This is authentic story telling at its best. Be ready for 2 hours that will take your breath away and hold your attention completely.
So get ready as the Act Of Valor hits the big screen this February 24th 2012. An intense action/thriller story starring real life US Navy SEALs.
