    Me too !
    Just have a ton of respect for those guys. I don't think very many folks can even begin to understand, how much dedication it takes to become a SEAL. Not to mention the pain they have to go through.
    Sick and tired of wannabees, who claimed they were special this and that. After 13 years in the navy, I know the difference between the real deal and not.
    My hat off to any of the special forces out there.

    Can't wait to see this one. Rush Limbaugh spent 15 minutes talking about it yesterday on his show. Some liberal groups are putting it down as it kind of glorifies the military, something they despise. F-em I say. A bunch of this movie was also filmed with a $3,000 Canon camera like the hunting shows are filmed with. Impressive to say the least. The reason real SEALs are used as there were no stunt men who could handle the scenes being shot. Real live ammo was used during a lot of the scenes also.

    My daughter and I are going this afternoon so I'll let y'all know what I think later. I saw a clip where the directors said they had to cast the seals because they are the only athletes capable of doing what needed to be done. This whole thing started out as a recruiting film and almost didn't get released. SOCOM finally gave it approval. Should be cool and even better if the libs hate it!!!

    Went last night

    Was almost a full house

    Nobody spoke or got up after the movie until all credits were played

    then silent respect for the reality as they all walked out.

    Hope this opens the eyes of those who do not realize were are at war with many elements trying to destroy our way of life.

    I read the book first, then went to see the movie. The book was awesome. The move was good but they left out a great deal of the plot from the book. I liked the firefight when the brown water Navy rescued the seals from the drug members who had kidnapped the female doctor. The book said the boats fired 40 pounds of lead in about 20 seconds in that scene. That's impressive.
