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!

Ho hum.By 147 (3 reviews) , 10 May 2013Not much of a story to be fair - been done a dozen times. A bit corny in places, but a watchable action movie for all that.
Worth a watchBy a customer , 09 May 2013Yeh, agree with other comments that you really do get an insight into the goings on of the brave men in the armed services, this is a very vey good film, and one you will be thinking about long after film is finished.
Really suprisingly goodBy a customer , 29 Apr 2013Great film, suprisingly not cheesy!! Superb action scenes, well paced, coherant story with some genuine feeling and emotion. What a massive pleasant suprise. Get on Blu-Ray if you can, the visuals are amazing.
A good ....not over-the-top...American navy on showBy Ilovefilmstoo (129 reviews) from Cumbria , 23 Apr 2013An action film that makes you think...'this must be what it is really like'...I loved the image of professional soldiers doing a job....thought the private life image was a bit sanitised though (I know of several SAS who have trouble adjusting to a 'normal' family life...and who can blame them).....but it was good to watch and I was exhausted for them when it kept going on.....!!!!!
Enjoyable action movieBy a customer , 21 Apr 2013Great action movie,good storyline, but acting bit wooden and cheesey. Worth watching for the war action inspired by real soldiers.
