Act of Awe

Standard

Last night, went to a screening for Act of Valor. I’ll be honest, I didn’t look too much in to the film so literally walked in there not knowing what was about to happen. Which led me to sit in my chair with my mouth open in disbelief.

The film uses real U.S. Navy SEALs and documents them through faux missions. But I must say, seeing them go in to capture someone who was kidnapped immediately brought up a notion of the recent Somalia recovery.  So while it’s fiction, there’s some serious truth to this film.

This film ensures I’m always continually thankful for all the branches of the armed services. Because fighting is more than just shooting a gun. And serving is more than just patrolling. It takes a certain human being willing to do so. Someone who’s signing up to leave and go without much direction. Someone who’s selfless. And that act of valor leaves you in awe.

The film is scheduled for a mid- to late- February release.
