Releasing a new poster for Act of Valor is no game

02.21.2012

Just in time for a final marketing push comes a new poster for ACT OF VALOR. The main selling point of the movie is the reality of it all, complete with the use of actual Navy SEALs instead of actors for many key roles, so it makes plenty of sense for them to release a poster that is all about that fact.  You can see how well they do and whether that reality makes for an engaging film this Friday, February 24th. 

Act of Valor poster 2

I know that the poster above says "in cinemas March 23rd," but that refers to the UK and Ireland - I promise, the movie really does release at the end of this week here in the States.

Plot recap: "Act of Valor takes audiences deep into the secretive world of the most elite, highly trained group of warriors in the modern world. When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home."

Extra Tidbit: ACT OF VALOR is "rated R for strong violence including some torture, and for language."

I'll check it out

I am sure that these guys will do a better job representing the SEALS than Charlie Sheen who incidentally could not get over the first wall at a Navy SEAL obstacle course while filming "Navy SEALS" Seriously, chasing down a tow truck with a bike and freeing a car? Pu-lease!

Oh well...

Just too bad the film is not very good. It really is just like watching a live action "Call of Duty" title. Good thing I saw it for free. Don't get it twisted, though. I'm a vet and respect what these men (and others) do for their country.

In some advertisements for this they talk about how live ammo was used on some of the shoot, to go along with real SEALs being cast, etc. But at the end of the day this is a fictionalized, simulated film. Maybe the dialogue is a wee bit more honest and realistic and combat scenarios will be played out to be more realistic, but ultimately this is just "generic DTV military action drama".

The trailers for this is clearly just trying to reel in the 'Call of duty' crowd (i'm one of them). But even I'm not sold. What exactly is the plot? Whos the 'bad guy'? Every trailer makes Act of Valor look like a documentary or commercial for the military.
p.s. I'm not hating on the military. I am a Navy Vet and just callin it how I see it.

If this was propaganda, it'd be PG-13 and sanitized as all fuck. Instead they appear to be showing the harsh realities of this job. Hell, I'm in no hurry to join up. Instead I'll kick back and marvel at these brave men and their sacrifices for their country.

Yeah yeah it's rated R, you must be so happy. I guarantee you The Expendables 2 will be a better movie than this one.

They might as well just have military recruiters selling tickets to this film giving out pamphlets for joining the military when they buy a ticket.
