ACT OF VALOR

ACT OF VALOR – GETS THE AWARD

Spend Your Cash Proudly On A Full Price Ticket!

Have you ever sat back and counted how many navy seal, marine and army movies there have been over the years. They all have the same basic concept and no matter how you change the story or the actors, the result is still the same. Lots of action, strong manly looking guys and usually so so acting. If your into those type of movies, then your happy. If not, then you always pass or wish you had. Directors Mike McCoy, Scott Waugh were dedicated towards making their film unique by adding one critical piece: REAL ACTIVE DUTY NAVY SEALS AS THE LEADING CHARACTERS.

Like we mentioned above, the story line doesn’t differ much from all the others. A group of Navy Seals are sent on a mission to rescue a kidnapped CIA agent who stumbled upon the wrong men looking to do harm against the US. Its not until they make the rescue that they determine that there is much more to the story than they originally thought.

From the news, trailers and the commercials, we were excited to see the results of this unique approach. We weren’t expecting much from an acting standpoint, but we anticipated plenty of action and a real view into what its like to be a Navy Seal.

We are comfortable stating that this is the closest you will ever get to experiencing what its like to be Navy Seal unless you are or were one. Many of the scenes were shot from a point of view perspective and according to the directors, real live ammo was used to bring a realistic feel to the movie.

It’s almost as if the directors were playing the video game “Call of Duty Modern War fare” and decided to shoot a movie the same way. To add some acting ability to the movie, they did incorporate actors Alex Veadov, Roselyn Sanchez and Nestor Serrano, but the stars of this film were clearly the Navy Seals.

Although the movie had a sour ending, if you don’t leave this film feeling inspired, its definitely something wrong with you.

Spend your cash proudly on a full price ticket if your into movies like this. Otherwise conserve your dough and see the matinee.

WANDERLUST

WANDERLUST-WILL LEAVE YOU WONDERING

Don’t waste your money; wait until it comes on TV!

We wonder why Aniston signed on to do this film, we wonder what the writers David Wain and Ken Marino were thinking, and we wondered when would it be over.

George (Paul Rudd) and Linda (Jennifer Aniston) are a young couple faced with the disappointment of a job loss, and a new loft they can no longer afford. The couple heads to Atlanta to move in with George’s brother. On the way there, the couple stumbles upon a hippie commune they mistake for a Bread and Breakfast. When staying with the brother doesn’t pan out, the couple returns to the commune where they embrace the free love lifestyle.

The movie tries to do too much and doesn’t give enough time to cement each storyline. They missed the mark on offering a new twist to the same old story, or shall I say stories. We start off thinking this was going to be a movie about people’s ability to rebound from financial ruin, wait no, then we are introduced to a dysfunctional family with a Mother/wife that would be a pretty good addition to ATL Housewives; and just when you think the movie is going to start going somewhere, they take us down the path of ‘ole natural, where one returns to nature and the simple life to gain a better understanding of their purpose in life. Sprinkle in some Swingers, corporate greed, and a new casino and there you have it-Wanderlust.

Aside from the occasional laugh –Rudd’s scene where he is practicing his “pimp daddy” mantra is hilarious-it isn’t enough to carry the movie through. The likeable cast cannot overcome the poorly written script. The best parts are the outtakes.

Wonder no more, free yourself from this movie. Watch it on TV!
