Apparently the movie uses real Navy SEALs as the actors. Wondering what you guys thought.

When they get to the Hollywood movie, the real Navy SEALs are too...

Props on the cinematography. Though, the dialogue sounds shit and cliché. A lot of "cliché-ish" cinematography too, but it at least that looks well done.

I agree with Katipo66.

Looks like a bunch of fairy stories which i would tell my children before they go to bed, about our protectors, noble as knights from olden times fighting evil villains and rescue woman from haunted forest.

Seriosly, what is that? Alex Jones talked about a SEAL movie which will come out, right after the Bin Laden Raid thing happend. But he said its more likely that James Cameron will make that movie.

I don't like where this is going.
:) :) Keep chearleading :):):) yaaaay

I quite like the look of it. If done well, it could be a really nice and perhaps pretty realistic take on SEAL operations, and the lives of SEALs in general. Although, I am not expecting much from the acting department as, although SEALs can do some incredible things, I'm not entirely convinced that they can carry movie roles, especially if they are the only actors playing the main characters.

Probably a mediocre action flick, but little more.

We have already seen that movie a thousand times. Same old overused predictable poop.

Looks like another pathetic and pretty unrealistic US flick for "recruitment".

It's true that no action can save a film if the acting is painful to watch..

Then again, we have some exceptions:

^^ Oh that's good.
I never go to the cinema. I'm tired of sitting there looking at my watch, if it's Hollywood studio made, it's better to wait for the DVD. That said, this has never been done before and I hope they make a good job of it for the sake of the SEALs.

Didn't see the trailer but the comments were interesting....

The first trailer had me thinking "h'wood bullshit" with the "ok I'll swim under water by that guard and wait while you take the shot then I'll catch him while I'm under water" :yay:
