Act of Valour

The only easy day was yesterday.


Act of Valour
An action thriller showcasing an elite group of active duty Navy SEALs in a fictionalized account of real events. With never-before-seen action sequences performed by real military men, we follow a crack squad on the most important rescue mission of their lives. The film started life as a recruiting film, then some of the SEALs got upset at the portrayals, so the makers redid things using real SEALs.

110 minutes.

What the Critics say

Cape Times
Michael Rechtshaffen quote iconSetting out to be the real deal of US Navy SEAL movies, this film is played by active-duty recruits. The well-intentioned stab at manufactured authenticity yields mixed results.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconI suspect most gamers will appreciate this, if only for the familiarity it provides. The best I can say is that I was never bored, although I was never overwhelmed, either. There are enough small things to keep it interesting even when many of the big things fail.

ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconThere is enough spectacle here to recommend seeing this on the big-screen for combat movie junkies. But if you want a truly authentic depiction of men at war complete with real emotion and real scenes of life-or-death battle, you really have to go the documentary route and see Restrepo or the more recent Hell and Back Again.

Tomatometer quote iconIt's undeniably reverent of the real-life heroes in its cast, but Act of Valor lets them down with a clichéd script, stilted acting, and a jingoistic attitude that ignores the complexities of war.
