If you’re anything like this writer, when you saw the trailer for “Act of Valor” during this past Super Bowl, you may have thought, “Looks like action movies have finally become videogames.” Looking like a cross between an XBOX title like “Call of Duty” and a Michael Bay film on a miniscule budget, “Act of Valor” seems to be aiming to please audiences in the heartland, along with a little help from a tagline that reads “A Motion Picture Featuring Active Duty Navy Seals.” Honoring the brave men and women who serve in our armed forces is one thing, but when you can do a quick Google search and discover that this project started off as a recruitment ad, 'Valor' starts to feel a little like propaganda.
