Inferring that I'm a homosexual and insisting that there's something wrong with that leads me to believe you're the exact demographic the military can trick into believing that Act of Valor is a legitimate movie and a real depiction of Navy SEAL operations.
You need to understand how cinema works. In order for a producer to use military equipment and information in a movie, especially one to the degree of Act of Valor, they need government assistance and permission. The military has never, and will not ever, support a movie that views the military in a negative light. Chances are, the government gave Bandito Brothers the soldiers and equipment for FREE. Why? Because Act of Valor is going to be so glorious, so inspirational, and so pro-military that the Navy SEALS need this movie to exist, so the military gets more recruits and the public reception of the military gets better. Welcome to the business side of Hollywood. The producers suck the military's dick to make money, and the military gives them the kneepads.
Get real, you're being brainwashed. Don't believe everything the picture boxes tell you.

I will add this, it's interesting to see a pro war movie. I don't think there's been one since WW2.

I don't see why you guys feel the need to dismiss it right away and call it a war propaganda movie. It's a movie that shows the stresses and hardships these brave men deal with living a secret life style. It's not a movie about 9/11 or inspiring support for the war on terror. If they used big name actors it would lose everything it stands for.

How is that in anyway creating support for some on going controversial event?
Case in point of how propaganda works.
"It is absurd to hold that a man ought to be ashamed of being unable to defend himself with his limbs, but not of being unable to defend himself with speech and reason."
Movie? I see nothing that constitutes a movie. No plot. No character development.
Just SEALs putting on a badass show.
And I'm completely okay with this. But lets not kid ourselves in to thinking this is a movie. Top Gun was a movie. Red Dawn was a movie. This is a glorified documentary

Watched it. 8 for action that the SEALS put on. 5 for acting and storyline. Definitely could be a recruiters movie for SEALS. In any case all I can say is thank you to these warriors and others like them that serve our country.
