This weeks Saturday Night Recommendation is 2012 film Act of Valor.
Recommendation: People say you can’t make a good video game movie, but if this movie was rebranded Call of Duty, you would have a hell of an adaptation. At the time this movie came out I can admit I was really into the Call of Duty Modern Warfare series and this movie was exactly like that. What drew me into this movie was the fact that movie used active duty Navy SEALs, and was inspired by their actual missions, so there is a level of authenticity to the way the film plays out. This was never going to be an Oscar winning film given that these aren’t actors, they are soldiers but if you watch it just for the action sequences you will definitely be impressed. It definitely feels like a video game movie, with an over the top story but some incredible action, with some even more impressive stunts. If you are a fan of action, war movies and the Call of Duty games then check out this film.
Synopsis: A team of elite US Navy SEALs is called when an undercover CIA agent by the name of Lisa Morales is kidnapped, and almost beat to death. The team of guys responsible for the kidnapping end up correlating to two men who construct a devastating plan to rebel against America, by means of terrorism. Once again, the SEALs are brought in to attempt to neutralize the enemies.
