Act of Valor

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.


  1. OK I'll put it on my list..Saw a special recently about Navy Seals. They are just incredible!

  2. I've been hearing about this movie. Thank you for your review!

  3. I don't get to the movies often either, so selective is definitely the word I'd use. Glad this one was worth your time.

  4. We'll have to put this on a list for a later date because we only go to the theater about once or twice a year as well but they are usually Pixar movies. LOL!

  5. Thank you for sharing this with us. I know my sweetheart and I will want to see it. What an incredible tribute to those who serve. If it helps us better understand what they sacrifice for us it will be successful. It's on our list now.

  6. I haven't seen a movie in ages. This one sounds like a good one though

  7. I don't go to movies anymore, but glad you did and enjoyed it. :)

  8. thanks for the info, Donna. I am certain that the Luscious Man will want to see it.
