I hadn't read anything about the movie so I was just expecting something along the lines of a new age war movie in the vein of Black Hawk Down. I won't condemn the movie for the bad acting now that I know they used real-life SEALs to play the roles, besides it is not really a character driven movie anyways. What I do condemn the movie for is having battle scenes and cut sequences that make the entire film seem like nothing more than a trailer for the next Call of Duty video game mixed with a Navy recruiting commercial. The plot is idiotic, the special effects subpar, and the combat tactics reminded me of how I used to plan out battles with green army men when I was 7.
not really defending the movie... But, kind of. I heard that special effects seem bad because they are not special effects, but instead, live rounds.
I didn't see it,
