Act of Valor

(R) ★★☆☆☆

This film, which started as a recruiting video for the U.S. Navy and stars several actual SEALs, depicts a team sent into Costa Rica to extract a captured comrade. There’s a drug lord, Muslim terrorist, all kinds of modern weaponry, and the true-to-life teamwork, training and heroics of the Navy SEALs. Unfortunately, the film comes across as promotion, and its action is far too reminiscent of Call of Duty video games. The movie should convey more of that real danger.
