Act Of Valor
Ok see the thing about this film is, the action is great and it's an action movie. The acting though is pretty bad. The military men in this movie aren't actors they are real Navy Seals. The messed up part is some of the Navy men in the movie are better actors then others so it really points out the bad acting. If they were all in the same "can't act for shit" bucket then it wouldn't be so bad. But this is an action movie and unlike any other because they are using real ammo! LIVE ROUNDS! How?? I don't know! Why?! I haven't any damn clue! Seems dangerous as hell and kinda pointless seeing as how most films look good ammo - gun - killing wise these days. But the real kicker for this film is that it was shot entirely on a DSLR camera. That is pretty impressive to shoot a major film release with a camera costing less than $10,000.
The movie in a whole. Not bad at all really. Besides the crap-tastic acting from the non-actors it was an entertaining film. Things blew up, fun was had, tears, death...BOOM!
