From Amazon.co.uk

Act of Valour aims to capture the experience of Navy SEALs as they combat the schemes of a Chechnyan jihadist who wants to send suicide bombers into American stadiums and shopping malls. Their efforts take them all over the world, from Costa Rica to Somalia to the South Pacific. For added authenticity, eight real Navy SEALs have been cast in the lead roles. In terms of tactics and equipment, Act of Valour is rigorously authentic. What marks this as fantasy is the perfection of the missions (there are no civilian casualties; every sniper takes out his target in a single head shot--there are a lot of exploding heads in this movie) and absolute moral clarity (the wild-eyed jihadist and drug cartel foot soldiers are unquestionably evil; one of the main characters carries his grandfather's folded flag from World War II). The performances of the SEALs, though well intentioned, make you appreciate the complexities of Arnold Schwarzenegger. What's smart about Act of Valour is that it doesn't waste much time with setups or dialogue, but heads straight into the missions. However, much of these missions are filmed like a first-person-shooter video game, which lends a sense of immediacy but undercuts the sense of reality. Still, all in all, Act of Valour is a sincere attempt to express admiration for the men and women risking their lives in the military. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
...but boy is it fantastic!! Act of Valor features genuine U.S. Navy SEALs and U.S. Navy Special Warfare Combatant Crewmen with actual military hardware, resultantly it has an incredible edge of realism, people's mannerisms and attitude to their equipment is authentic.

It follows the story of a global terrorist threat that is intent on smuggling suicide-bombers wrapped in the latest bomb-vest technology; untraceable & undetectable ceramic ball-bearing explosives. With the sheer number of people trying to infiltrate the United States via people-smuggling networks these relatively minor explosions will cause mass hysteria and ultimately the collapse of the American economy if the terrorists get their way. Standing between them and the world are the SEALs (Team 7, in this instance) who will not rest until this plot has been defused.

Firstly, I feel it important to say that I appreciate that this is a recruitment video, that it is American propaganda and heavily one-sided, but despite these points I have never been so entertained by a military film and for this - solely cinematic - perspective, Act of Valor definitely deserves the five stars. For fans of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series or any other FPS this is a dream. There are multiple camera shots down-barrel, FLIR images from circling drones, HALO jumps, AC-130 Spectre gunships, sniper scope cameras and boat-drops from Chinooks. Basically, if it's been in a video-game it's here in all it's glory on celluloid. Not only does it have a strong element of realism, it's a beautifully shot experience filmed in multiple locations (The Philippines, Somalia, Mexico amongst others).

I had never heard of this movie until mentioned by another reviewer a few weeks ago. Had a quick look, ordered it and really enjoyed it!

Act Of Valour is about a team of US Navy Seals whom are deployed in several different areas globally trying to stop a terrorist from getting some high tech suicide bomb jackets into America. The intended targets are shopping malls, sports arenas and densely populated main cities to cause maximum fatalities and economic chaos.

Using real life Navy Seals the movie has been made in a semi-documentary style and I would say call of duty-esque! A lot of first person helmet style camera shots are used. Which is a nice touch and brings a little of the reality home in my opinion.The professionalism comes across well throughout as it gives you an insight into what these soldiers do for a living and how good they are at it! Anybody who's played COD will appreciate the real life technologies that the seals use during missions and according to the blurb the seals actually insisted on using live ammunition when signing up to make this movie!

Being a bluray the action sequences (for me) are wow! The fine detail can be picked out on weapons and uniforms. Things like bullet holes in walls and vehicles etc during firefights only add to the action. The colours of the jungle look brilliant. Nightscenes are very clear with no loss of detail. Considering this was shot on an inexpensive camera (A Canon 5D mark ll ) it is absolutely brilliant! Audiowise crank your 5.1 system up! With bullets whizzing in every direction explosions punching through the air during shootouts and in one scene the quiet ambiance of a night parachute insertion to the sound of a cricket chirrupping (is that a word?

Format: DVD
Act of valour has some of the most wooden acting you will ever see in film. But in the film's defense the stars of this film aren't actors they are real life navy SEALS and the film follows them on one of their very dangerous missions to stop a madman from setting off suicide bombs. The action scenes are very tense and terrific and despite the wooden acting from the SEALS it does give the film a feel of authenticity that might not have worked and turned the film into just another average hollywood action film if they had used hollywood action stars in the lead and shows you what these guys have to go through before returning home to their families. For something that started as a training video for navy SEALS and recruitment film this is something that while not quite classic is certainly well worth a watch.

Quite enjoyed this. Action set pieces are all good. Dialogue is a little cheesy at times. It is a little bit pro USA which is probably where the negative reviews come from. Interestingly a similare movie (Special Forces) which is a French mainly subtitled movie gets 4.5 stars and many 5 star reviews. Just shows stick some subtitles on a film and the more pretentious reviewer will give it an extra star.

Hollywood produces some superb action packed films with star actors taking the lead. This one does not have star names. It stars real life action men and it therefore has the feel of a fly on the wall documentary whilst still being a good story. The action is realistic. The tension can be felt, all the more so because you know the men who star are the sort of men who put their lives at risk and sometimes do lose it. It does not have the gloss of some of the Hollywood epics but maybe is all the better for it because it has a gritty realism. A war film with substance. Highly watchable. Recommended.
