'Act of Valor' is directed by Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh. Filming for the movie took two years, as the directors wanted to convey the scope of what real Navy SEALs actually do on their operations. A fictional story is included, surrounding the kidnapping of a CIA operative, Agent Morales (Roselyn Sanchez), but much of the movie surrounds other missions the SEALs undertake to protect the U.S. from terrorist attacks. Amazingly, live fire (real ammunition) scenes are included in the film.

    Navy Seal #1: "For all those who've been down range, to us, and those like us -- damn few."

    The U.S. Navy SEALs (the Sea, Air, and Land teams) are among the nation's most elite warfare combatants, undergoing brutal training to become qualified. The SEALs training is so tough, only a handful of candidates are eventually selected.

    Navy Seal #1: "You don't expect your family to understand what you're doing. You just hope they'll accept it. And when you get home, you hope you can pick up right where you left off."

    Real world missions undertaken by U.S. Navy SEALs are incredibly dangerous. When the SEALs finally do get to go home, the transition from active combat missions to day-to-day events is probably difficult.
