Critics Consensus: Act of Valor Misses the Mark

by |

Summary

The 84th Annual Academy Awards are Sunday, so here's your last chance to check out the nominees before the Oscars are handed out. However, if you're in the mood for something new, we've got real American heroes (Act of Valor, starring Roselyn Sanchez and Alex Veadov), a wacky commune (Wanderlust, starring Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd), a soul-sick businessman (Tyler Perry's Good Deeds, starring Tyler Perry and Thandie Newton), and a mysterious disappearance (Gone, starring Amanda Seyfried and Daniel Sunjata). Act of Valor is a fictionalized action film featuring real-life Navy SEALs, but critics say it's not a particularly good one; it's an over-adrenalized series of (literally) explosive set-pieces that never finds the humanity within these heroes.Back to Article
