Time To Get Your Frogman On: 'Act Of Valor' Film Is The Real Deal, Navy SEALs Say
Howard Altman at the Tampa Tribune wrote an interesting piece on the upcoming film Act of Valor.
Act of Valor uses active duty Navy SEALs rather than actors and the feature film, inspired by true events, is reported to be the most realistic film made about SEALs and Special Operations.
Act of Valor" centers around a platoon of SEALs on a mission to recover a kidnapped CIA agent; in the process, the group learns about an imminent threat against the nation. But more than just an action shoot-'em-up, the movie shows the scope of special operations missions, from emotional goodbyes to jumping out of airplanes to the first time the Navy ever allowed one of its few nuclear subs to be used in a movie.
Beyond the SEALs, the film also uses other real military personnel, including sub and ship crews and Army special operations aviators.
