Act of Valor is a 2012 American action film[2] directed by Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh, and written by Kurt Johnstad. It stars Alex VeadovRoselyn SánchezNestor SerranoEmilio Rivera, and actual active duty U.S. Navy SEALs and U.S. Navy Special Warfare Combatant Crewmen. The film was released on February 24, 2012.
When Navy SEAL Team 6 raided Osama Bin Laden's compound last year and took out America's most wanted foe, they became overnight national heroes. And rightfully so. They're absolute badasses. But attacking with ninja stealth, jumping out of airplanes, and tracking down terrorists doesn't leave much time for acting lessons. 

What Is Good About the Movie:
With a cast comprised of real-deal SEALs (who, not surprisingly, remain nameless)Act of Valor makes Top Gun look like Easy Rider. The plot is video-game simple: an Islamic jihadist from Chechnya is out to attack America on its own soil, smuggling a bunch of suicide bombers across the U.S./Mexico border. It's up to the SEALs to stop them. When the bullets are flying, Act of Valor is undeniably tense and thrilling. The brutal chaos of battle is well choreographed by directors Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh. 

What Is Bad About the Movie:
During this combat flick/recruitment video's quieter moments, it's stiff and sappy. Consider this mission only half-accomplished.
