One of my fears after we learned many details on the ultra-authentic Navy SEALS film Act of Valor was that it would simply be one large recruitment video. My fears have not swayed with the first trailer, as the story seems to be the most basic level of longing for loved ones at home while nicely photographed, intense action happens out on the field. I hope there is a little something more to grab on to with the final product. Written by Kurt Johnstad (300) and directed by Mike “Mouse” McCoy and Scott Waugh (who worked on stunts for Bad Boys II, Speed, Spider-Man and many more), film stars Alex Veadov, Roselyn Sanchez and Nestor Serrano.
