Anyone else seen it? It has to be one of my favorite movies. I liked the extraction scene at the beginning the best. With the mini-pods. That would've been so much fun imo.

Yeah, I heard that the action was incredibly well done, but the acting left some stuff to be desired. Hoping I can see it soon though, seems awesome.

Such a good movie.
and the opening extraction seen was so sick!!

I think it showed a perspective of our military that we haven't seen before.

It was never a matter of being able to stop or handle any situation, it was always a matter of can we get there and stop/handle it on time.

I didn't see any issues with acting, but let's be honest, they're SEALs, not actors. They're trained to kick @ss, not be someone else.

It only makes me want to shoot a mini-pod more. And from a boat. The time really was an issue, though. They were this close *pinches fingers* to missin those jihadis. I can't imagine actually jumping onto a grenade. And thank God for bulletproof vests.

Honestly, I admire the actors in it because they are on duty Navy Seals, but the acting was the most horrid piece of crap I have ever seen. You could automatically see that these people were not real actors and their cheesy acting really stagnated the movie parts which relied on character to character conversations.

However, the actions scenes were pretty good. I especially liked the different camera angles used, especially the one where you could see down the sights of the gun.

The movie grossed about 15 million so far. Thats not bad considering the competition it was up against.

I didn't enjoy it. It seemed really corny.
Life is like radiation. A uniquely damaging event. Perhaps I will live another thirty years. Perhaps I will die tomorrow. But I have no regrets. I was sometimes forced to make difficult choices. But enough is enough. As Vladimir would say, you can only die once, make sure it is worth it.

It DID start out as a military promo film, but just eventually escalated into the awesome movie it is.

It's still a promo film.
