Just got back from watching it. It was really good. There are some POV shots at the beginning that kinda messed with my equilibrium, but after that it was all good.

I promise if you go to see it there are more impressive parts.

not to offend anyone but parts of that trailer seemed GRAWish.

I'd like to see it.

edit: watched another version. One of the guys looks like one of the delta guys from Blackhawk Down? coincidence?

I saw it and it was just another glorified war movie to me, nothing special. A few people in the NSW community i have talked to are all for it, but most seem to not be too thrilled.

My Dad keeps saying he wants to see this "Call of Duty" movie.

I will probably wait until it hits redbox.

I really want to see it because I'm a video guy and the movie was shot mostly with 5D and 7D DSLR's. Pretty awesome what they are doing with cameras that most amateurs can afford.

Do we know for sure that the "active duty SEALS" are actually active duty SEALS? I mean, pretty much every scary movie to come out in the last decade has been "based on actual events" using "actual footage."

I'm going to see it Sun. I heard they were all AD and I took long to film it because they kept getting deployed.

Saw it last night. I agree with most of the general reviews I read online before going - the acting/story line sucks, but the action was good.

The most realistic part for me was their elevated breathing in some of the POV shots as they start to engage. Nice to know the SEALS deal with that too...

Thats cool. Hear more and more situations where HDSLRs are being incorporated into normal Hollywood shoots. Especially un smaller spaces. I've always wanted to get into doing more with mine but just don't have the time to put not it right now.

I drew up some plans for two different homemade steadycam rigs I'd like to build for it one day.

I'm not going to see it. I can't help but think its way too far fetched. Kind of like in these types of movies where you have the guys in night vision slowly emerging from the water with some crazy ass gun with every attachment from flash lights to a potato peeler.

Or is that what its really like?

I don't think active duty SeALs are going to allow a movie to be made about them that wasn't accurate, if they're the ones doing the acting.

Pretty sure everything you see in this movie is something they've trained and/or done before in an actual op. What you have to wonder though...what are they not showing? What kinds of still-classified maneuvers/tactics/strategies are being employed in the theatre that aren't being shown in the theater?

I can't possibly be the only military guy on here thinking that obviously, these active duty Seals don't do shit. Why? Because if they got enough fucking time to make a movie, obviously, they aren't doing anything.



[tinfoilhat]This movie is a conspiracy, paid for by the .gov, as part of Obama's wish to fatten up the SF community. So, by pumping out this film, millions of Call of Duty fanboys will sign their next 6 years away to try and join the Navy [/tinfoilhat]

I'd consider hours of filming simulated combat as combat training.

I hereby authorize you to download an offical SEAL certification from the interwebz and put it on the wall beside your Gemology certification.
