Well I watched the DVD last night-I'm a little undecided on this one?
Not bad, but not as great as some make it out to be - a little heavy on action, light on plot, but I'm not gonna knock it on that. The fact that current Navy Seals were used in the filming did pique my interest enough to convince me to watch it.
What kept going through my head while watching it was...hey, this is Tears of the Sun! I remember seeing the original trailer over a year ago, and thought the same thing at the time, and even the music in the trailer reminded me of Tears of the Sun (TotS music was darn good-one of my favorite soundtracks).
Based on a number of viewer reviews, Act of Valor good, Tears of the Sun bad...go figure?
BTW-I really enjoyed Moneyball, 'specially since it was based on a true story!
(yeah, it was movie night at BB's house last night).
