Act of Valor, a 2012 American action-documentary film, was originally created after the Bandito Brothers Production company filmed a video for the military called “Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen”. This gave them the idea to produce a feature-film, using the delicate mix of story-telling and real life military scenarios.
Although the plot is fictional in nature, the film depicts real life operations used in the Navy SEALS. As a group of officers must leave home, they face the reality each member of the military must face on a day-to-day basis; their lives are the line each day for the freedom of their coutry.
Saying goodbye to their children and wives, the officers must travel abroad to rescue a CIA operative that was abducted during a mission. Using state-of-the-art battle equipment, including tanks, guns, and riffles, these hero’s may not save only their comrade, but possibly hundreds of thousands of people.
Directed by Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh, Act of Valor is unique in that it’s actors are actual, active duty SEALS in the United States military. The Navy SEALS names will not appear in the credits of the film. With such an interesting twist of real-life battle techniques and a spot-on plot, except Act of Valor to be a hit as America will flock in crowds to see their “American hero’s” on the big screen.
