I definitely want to see this one especially since real Seals are in it.

I still can't talk much about this movie without getting a little teary-eyed, but it's one that all patriots must watch.

I have been afraid it would be weird. And not in a good way. But if you say it's a must-see, I'll go.

The entire theater was silent as we filed out afterwards.

Yes it was Ben, Shane and Trevor went with me yesterday and seen it, and the thing that came to my mind was, these losers in Washington should be ashamed of what they dont do and the money they make, really, 10% of them, maybe, would dive on a bomb to protect someone, and they want to cut the pay of the guys that would do it in the blink of the eye. Very strong film, please everyone go see it.:punch::punch::punch:

It sounds like it's one of those that really moves you. If you were teary-eyed, Ben, I'm probably going to be ball'n my eyes out. :unsure:

It really hit home for me 'cause my uncle's a Ranger & I know that he's lost at least man this past year.

It's got to be so hard when that happens and they still have to keep it together and be prepared to go on to the next battle. When I got to meet Boom last year, we talked a little bit about some of this stuff--the effects and toll it takes on these guys, tour after tour, that constant "fight or flight" mode their minds and bodies are in. God Bless them!

I'm not sure how to explain it. I was worried that it would be cheesy and cheap with poor acting and bad dialogue. I don't want the guys who worked so hard on it to end up being a Hollywood joke with a poor showing at the box office. Movies rarely get things right and always end up trying to just make it a story. I dunno. Does that make sense?

Amy, yes it does, you will be happy to know, its none of the above. I believe you should like it, just be warned, at some points it is a little graphic.:scared0011::Whistle::Whistle:

Okay, I see what you were thinking now. From everything Ben and Danny have said about it, it sounds like they did a good job with this one. :)

I mean, obviously the SEALs aren't going to be stealing any Oscars from George Clooney, but they didn't ruin the movie.

It interests me more knowing they used real SEALS. :cool:

I'm glad y'all knew what I was trying to say. I just don't want the guys who are real life heroes being taken advantage of by Hollywood jerks or folks who would rather fly a flag at half staff for Whitney Houston than for the real heroes who fight for us every day. Anyway, I'll go see the movie. :laugh:
