    What a fetid, rank piece of shit.

    This film is a propaganda film just like the ones the US gov. used to put out during WWII. The gov. participated in the filming. I guess they wanted to convince people that war is worthwhile.

    Shitty acting. I mean the worst. You couldn't get into it at all while they were speaking. It just reminded you that they were reading. Plus they kept the dialogue short because there were some real servicemen in the movie.

    There was absolutely no reason to include real members of the Seals except for the fact that it added to the propaganda value.

    The only reason that I didn't leave is because some of the violence was cool. Even then it looked like a video game. When they were running with their machine guns it looked just like Doom.

    Right at the beginning, one soldier gave another soldier a note to hold for him. They didn't say but it was obvious that it was a note to be given to his family in case he died. Gee, I wonder who died during the movie. When they'd learn about a mission, their instructions would be really simple. "Your mission is to extract the package. Any questions?" "yes. What happens if they see us when we get there." Shit like that.

    I would give this movie no stars. Save your money for the video. Better yet, save your electricity and don't watch it when it comes out on video.:sleep:

    The premise seems like it could of been an amazing movie. US Navy Seals are bad ass.

    Here's another example of a line when one of the Seals is giving one of the dead Seal's kid a watch from him.

    “He’d be dammed if any slope’s gonna put their greasy yellow hands on his boy’s birthright. So he hid it in one place he knew he could hide something. His ass.”

    The director who did "The Hurt Locker" and the guy who wrote it just started filming "Killing Bin Laden", just wait till that one comes out to see a cool Navy Seals killing muslims movie.

    Morning bump. I just thought of something else. Every time somebody got shot, they used the exact same special effect. There would be blood splatter on the wall that they were standing next to. They used that same graphic probably 20 times.

    Of course he hasn't; but his keen conservative mind can tell how much you (and me) both hate America.

    Schmoopy, you've pwned yourself again. Your ignorance is reaching Mr. Smith levels.

    I'd bet anything that you haven't seen the movie. How would you know if it has a political agenda or not without actually seeing the movie. Of course, you could lie and say you saw the movie whether you did or not. Of course, I could debunk that by asking you some detailed questions regarding things that happened in the movie.

    Propaganda by definition is not Political. Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position. Of course Propaganda can be political.

    I didn't mention any political agenda in this movie although getting people to support war can certainly be politically motivated.

    You, being ignorant on an epic scale, never bothered to learn the meaning of Propaganda. You succumbed to Propaganda when you bought your Mustang. You bought into the ideal that Mustang drivers are somehow cool or superior. You also bought in to the Propaganda that a lease will save you money. Your business depends on Propaganda to make people think that you are selling a superior vacuum when both you and I know it is a stinking piece of shit.

    Does that help you?

    By the way, you are also a narrow minded fuck the way you judge people's political beliefs based on a stupid post.
