Act of Valor, highly recommended!

Act of Valor is a different kind of movie. I’m biased completely, but it was an awesome movie, when you take context into account. But even if you don’t, a couple of things really stood out.

1) The photography was absolutely beautiful. I mean literally stunning. Colors. Contrast. Sharpness. No filtering. Excellent cinematography, and excellent scene selections.

2) People have commented about the acting. I didn’t find it that stilted. In fact, they acted more like real people than actors ever do.

3) The action sequences are expertly done. Factor in using live ammunition, and the boat scene takes on a whole new level of awesome. The river scene was my favorite in the movie, followed closely by the car chase.

The decision to use real SEALS was a show stopping great decision. No one else could pull that off, and give it authenticity. People are going to say that it is hyped up, and nothing like that ever happens. I will just sadly shake my head at them, and walk off.

This is a must see. Seriously, it’s really good.

    I’m not sure if I should take my 12 year old. But the other two kids are looking forward to it.
