'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.If you're looking for quotes from other great films, check out these lists for the best lines from 'Red Tails,' 'War Horse,' 'Wanderlust,' 'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,' 'Underworld: Awakening,' 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,' 'The Iron Lady,' 'Immortals,' 'The Rum Diary,' 'The Descendants,' 'Hugo,' 'The Muppets,' 'Arthur Christmas,' 'Happy Feet 2,' 'Tower Heist,' 'Puss in Boots,' 'The Smurfs' movie, 'Cars 2' and 'Jack and Jill.'
The bond between Navy SEALs is rock-solid. This brotherhood of highly-trained, specialized commandos is ready to undertake the toughest missions around the world at any time, putting the lives of others ahead of their own.
Navy Seal #2: "There's a brotherhood between us. And if you're not willing to give up everything, you've already lost."
Trying to Get Home
The code of honor (among other things) and brotherhood is what keeps the SEALs going when times get extremely tough.
Navy Seal #1: "You live your life by a code, it's your shore line - it's what guides you home. And trust me, you're always trying to get home."
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: "For all those who've been down range, to us, and those like us -- damn few."
Pick Up 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.
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."
