A new trailer for Act of Valor has hit the interwebs — and there’s not much more to add, really, since the trailer itself doesn’t add much to the earlier trailer I posted a while back. Viewed solely as an action movie, it looks pretty awesome, with the only major wildcard being whether or not the story can string together the action sequences well enough and the actors can be convincing enough in the quiet scenes.
There’s the obvious (and tiresome) criticism that this is nothing more than propaganda, since it was created with the approval of the Navy. But really, how are films like The Kingdom or… well, anything Michael Bay does… and video games like Call of Duty or Battlefield not the same this way? Are we so stupid that we can’t enjoy it on its own merits, divorced from who gave it the green light? I don’t think we are.
Act of Valor stars Alex Veadov, Roselyn Sanchez and Nestor Serrano. The film was directed by Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh and hits theaters on February 17, 2012.
