Seal Team 6: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden Reviews
As a film it was an utter bore. Every character; the shooters, the CIA, the leadership, and especially the President were cardboard caricatures. Navy SEALs was a better movie about Navy SEALs than this amateurish production.
As a means to share with the audience the chronological events of the raid, it failed miserably. It was un-factual in so many different ways and there isn't the space to get into them all. It got virtually none of the details right, and even as a fictional telling, it added no details that would make you care one iota about what was going on. I was excited to sit down an watch this, but after about 30 minutes I was looking for something to do while it ran its course.
As a way to give the viewer some insight into a Tier 1 Special Forces unit like SEAL Team 6, or Development Group (as they are never called in this movie) it was an utter disaster. Fresh out of infantry school security Marines appear more competent and professional than the pretty boy actors who put on their best tough guy voice and dress the part, but sell it about as well as manikins at a Navy Uniform Exchange store.
My overall impression is that I've seen Star Wars fan films that are more compelling than this waste of an hour and a half.
Melodramatic jingoistic propaganda, but interesting and exciting at times. Sounds like there were a lot of inaccuracies but I didn't know a lot about it to begin with.
