Real Navy SEALs go Hollywood

Real Navy SEALs act in the new action thriller movie “Act of Valor”, which is opening in theaters this month. For the first time Special Operations Forces are acting out their real work, shooting, high altitude jumps, and patrolling in murky waters. CNN spoke to the director and had an exclusive interview with one of the SEALs in the movie.

    Covert operatives and operations should be just that. When they are then they are far more effective.

    Let's not mix real military + film industry.

    What happens when these guys need to fight again? They will be soft. another decline in America. 😦 Makes me sad.

      Soft SEALs? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! No such thing. They will probably get a lot of crap from their brothers for this, but they shouldn't get any from you.

        Hey man! – it's Lord Haw Haw. One of England's greatest traitors in WW2.

        They hung him.

    Oh great. More Hollywood bullshit for the masses. I hope they're all shown wearing headbands and muscle shirts – that would be so fucking gay. Just like all war-loving, chickenhawk, wannabe jar-head faggots

      What a way to generalize people. What makes you so special to call a mass of people who might see this "faggots." Let me guess, you're hot scheisse, right.

        War lovers are fags.

      There are those that love war, and those that understand it is what it is, yet still go into harms way to protect your pathetic existence. Show some respect. But since you have the right to free speech in this country, try coming into a bar in Coronado or Little Creek and say whatever you like ... Don't worry, most people there are qualified medics and will be there to make sure you don't choke to death on your own blood.

        So, this is how true 'Murcan 'patriots' operate, right? Talk out of one side of your mouth about "freedom", and "free speech" – than out of the other side; "We'll kick the living shit out of those who disagree with us". Nice!

        Fucking hypocrite.

        @Mitch – absolutely not. Like I said, you have your freedoms of expression, yet you choose to hide behind the veil of the interwebs. If you truly feel this passionate about it, go to one of the towns I mentioned and exersize your First Amendment rights. You will be offending people who defend said rights, yet you will want that protection from them? You might want to check the definition of hypocrite.
