Awesome action (spoken acting and script are pants but who cares when the action is this good!By royalstevep68 (4 reviews) , 18 Jul 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Odd one this.
Dont let the bad spoken acting comments put you off, other than that issue this is a real gem. Noone would expect real marines to be able to properly act - trust me ive seen worse from proper actors recently.
Action is superb and id say second to none.
Feels like call of duty without you playing it. Love the first person views too and dont think over done.
Yes, the spoken acting is wooden but the poor script didnt help. However, the action acting is superb and you really do get some sense of realism that few war/action films like this do.
Shame they didnt use one or two proper actors as this would have enhanced it.
Still you shouldnt miss this one!

utterly brilliantBy a customer , 20 Nov 2013Absolutely brilliant film loved every minute of it so much action takes a while to get going though but Would recommend the film as it's well worth a watch!!!!!!!
The Real Seal DealBy TheDJ (24 reviews) from Gloucester , 03 Sep 2013It was with some trpidation that I ordered this movie with Navy Seals taking on the roles of, surprisingly enough, Navy Seals. However, was pleasently surprised and really impressed with both the acting skills of the Seals and the plot, script and all round production. It was a great action movie and certainly recommended if you want realism of what Seal / SAS operations are really like for the men involved.
Definitely worth watchingBy Harts123 (2 reviews) , 14 Aug 2013I loved this film. Seeing how the seals go in undercover to rescue the operative and how they work together seamlessly as a team is eye-opening. The role of the families is also poignantly portrayed in this film. I highly recommend watching it.
Rather repetitiveBy a customer , 11 Aug 2013Not my thing really... a bit gung-ho and repetitive. Probably more a man's film. Didn't really get any depth to any of the characters so not sure what the point was....
Act of Valour - the real thingBy sofaboy (10 reviews) , 02 Aug 2013I prefer real looking stuff rather than, e. g. the A team, where no-one ever gets hit by that spray of automatic fire. This film delivers - they used live rounds in some of the sequences and it shows. Excellent - and (spoiler alert?) check out the sequences with the real sub, and taking down the luxury yacht. Not flashy, but very well done.
