An action film that’s been years in the making, Act of Valor features a cast that mixes actors with actual Navy SEALs. The production’s unparalleled access to the Navy — and the real-life experience the SEALs provide — lends authenticity to the story of a group of an elite squad trying to rescue a captured CIA agent.
