    Speaking of review scores, Act of Valor is getting a 42 on Metacritic. The common theme / summary is “great action, but weak story / no depth.”

    I think I’ll still go see it with my brother in law, but gotta admit that I’m a bit disappointed that the highest rating it got was a 75.

      Thanks for the heads-up, Kenai.

      The reviews aren’t surprising in the least. I have been following this one neither for its story nor its depth. All I want to see is real Navy SEAL at work, how they do what they do. Also, getting a chance to see some of the hardware in action holds a lot of appeal for me. Some of it is first time to be captured on film. I suspect for my purposes, the movie will not disappoint. Then again, that is what I thought about The Pacific, before it started showing on HBO. It is bewildering how they messed that up so badly.

    Popular Mechanics has an article on the Special Ops Gun Boat featured in the movie.
