We are not regular moviegoers. First of all, we are not fans of the superficial people that predominate the movie industry or their politics. Also, we don’t find most of the products coming out of Hollywood to be worth our time and money. As a result, we are selective and only see one or two movies a year.
Yesterday was one of those times that we decided to go see a matinee. We saw Act of Valor, featuring active duty Navy Seals and hard-hitting visual scenes. They used live ammunition and explosions in the filming, and immersed the cameras right in the middle of the fighting. I flinched several times and kept utter “dang” under my breath. It was intense!
The story line gives you a taste of what these brave service folks go through and what they sacrifice. We should be forever grateful!
We’re glad that we saw it, and you may want to put it on your movie list too. Please keep in mind that it is rated R, mostly for the violence. The movie is not suitable for young children.
