I am not what you would call much of a "movie goer". Never was, for that matter. Rather, I am the type of person whom would much rather wait a few months so I can watch a movie in the comfort of my home instead of in a sticky-floored, teenager-chatting movie theater...and for top dollar, no less. No thanks, I can wait.
This is why I have just gotten around to seeing the actioner, Act of Valor (AoV). When I first heard the pitch for this movie, I was excited:
When a covert mission to rescue a kidnapped CIA operative uncovers a chilling plot, elite, highly-trained U.S. SEAL teams speed to hotspots around the globe, racing against the clock to stop a deadly terrorist attack. Pulse-pounding combat sequences, cutting-edge battlefield technology and raw emotion fuel this unprecedented blend of real-world heroism and original filmmaking -- a thrilling tribute to the skills, courage and tenacity of the world's most revered warriors.
This sounds just like what the doctored ordered in these counter-terrorist times.
