Life is Hard. Wear a Helmet

Sunday morning sleep-in

I finally watched Act of Valor last night. (I don't do movie theaters)

Fakest part of the movie: Every time the good guys flew on a C-130, the synchrophasers were all working. Never in my life have I ridden twice in a row on Hercs with the synchrophasers working. They should have had at least one scene where the good guys were getting their fucking teeth rattled right out of their damn heads, and they were unable to talk to each other over the noise without screaming in each others faces like they were 100 yards apart. That would have made it a little more believable.

The rest of the movie was okay.


Those boys look a little too "reverent of individual liberty". Somebody get a drone over their place, stat.

Ah, but this was a NAVY Herc. They all work automagically in a Navy Herc. ( /snark )
Better explanation - it was in the script.

All service pissing contests aside, the scene where the gun boats roll up on scene with gatlins glowing is just bad-ass!
