Not great acting, but I thought it was worth my time. Made me more grateful for my freedoms.December 17th, 2012 · Details2 Thanks ·
If you don't know by now, they used real Navy Seals. I recommend looking past the acting (because it is horrible), and think about the real experiences that these men have been in. I enjoyed the film and would watch it again. I think it is definitely worth watching and could provide insight into war.August 1st, 2012 · Details1 Thank ·
The violence is to be expected when looking at the rating, which includes some torture that is unsettling but not explicit (the camera changes angles). The rest of the violence is in fire fights with realistic, (it appears to be, though I've never been in one) but not over-the-top blood, and injuries.
The language contributes some to the rating but did not seem excessive however there were about 6 or so F-bombs spread throughout the movie.
The movie causes reflection, and helps to give the viewer an idea of what these and other servicemen and women do to protect this nation.March 15th, 2012 · Details1 Thank ·
This movie isn’t that bad if you watch it with the sound off. I know they used actual Navy Seals and from an acting stand point I hope they’ve learned their lesson. Probably the worst acting, character development, story chronology and overall message that I have ever seen. I know they the military open stated this was a propaganda film however they didn’t even manage to pull that off. It was totally laughable and do to its piss poor production didn’t pay tribute enough to soldiers in my eyes.July 12th, 2012 · Details1 Thank ·
As a rule, I shun R-rated movies. But on rare occasions (such as with "Schindler's List"), I’ll make an exception for a film based on historical events, and in which the offending elements are an integral part of the events. Such was my justification for seeing this film. While the profanity was no doubt “real”, I guess it wouldn’t fit the definition of “integral”. But on the whole I believe the movie was worth my time. In fact, I would go so far as to say that every adult American should know the content of this story, whether they see the film or not.February 9th, 2013 · Details
Very intense. Worth the watch. Proud of our soldiers.November 6th, 2012 · Details
The acting in this movie is pretty bad, but the movie is awesome! This movie is a bit graphic and has some foul language, but it makes you appreciate the sacrifice our armed service men do for our country. There are very few movies that move me and can bring me to tears, but this one was a tear jerker. Great great movie. I loved it and finished watching it with ultimate respect for our military. I recommend this to anyone 17+. I will add this to my collection. This was acted by actual service men. Makes it even better and more legit.February 11th, 2013 · Details
This was a cool take on a war movie. Having real Navy Seals be the actors obviously made it cheesy at times, but it had some really cool parts. There weren't many times that the "F" word was used which I was grateful for. It opened my eyes to what these guys do for our country.April 9th, 2013 · Details
