Act of Valor

"Act of Valor" follows a Navy Seal squad on a covert mission to recover a kidnapped CIA agent, and in the process takes down a complex web of terrorist cells determined to strike America at all costs. The filmmakers had unprecedented Naval access resulting in high-octane combat sequences and never-before-seen military operation scenes which are composited from actual events in the lives of the men appearing in the film and their comrades.

Feb. 24 , 2012 - Boston.com - By Wesley Morris, Globe Staff

How do you take your trees? I couldn’t have known before seeing “Act of Valor,’’ but I prefer mine in heavy camouflage, face paint, and capable of demolishing a Mexicali neighborhood run by a wildly armed drug cartel. I prefer my trees to be Navy SEALs, particularly the real-life ones who’ve been recruited to star in this peculiarly entertaining exercise in bare-bones, Hollywood-style action heroism. The movie lasts a little more than 100 minutes, but we can tell in about two that discovery of tomorrow’s Poitiers or De Niros will have to wait until perhaps, well, tomorrow. When these men speak, you suddenly realize how uniquely good those Ents were in “Lord of the Rings.’’
