When the resue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot, a team of SEALs is dispatched on a global manhunt. As the men race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of innocent civilians, they must balance their commitments to country, team, and their families back home.

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

After a while the cinematic snake you feel fuzzy and cross eyed and the action is so fast paced, it's easy to become lost and just assume every one dies apart from America.
It's a novelty concept, and looks like a video game. Yes it deserves credit for pushing the boundaries. No, it's not a classic.
It's like watching a film drunk while on a roundabout.
