Act of Valor has clearly struck a chord with audiences as the film opened atop the weekend’s box office. Also enamored with the film are Hollywood celebrities who have tweeted about the film since its February 24 debut. Here’s a sampling of the stars’ sentiments via Twitter:
Twilight Saga star @Kellanlutz said: Just viewed a screening for Act of Valor, Love our military and the honor and valor they stand for! Amazing job to everyone!
Battleship star @BrooklynDecker reported: Act of Valor looks really, really good.
Arnold, the historical action movie king, @Schwarzenegger said: @TimTebow, fantastic to see you at the @ActOfValorFilm premiere. It was great to support such a great film with real heroes with you.
Then, there’s that guy who once appeared in a movie called Navy SEALs, @CharlieSheen: #ActOfValor, can’t stop thinking about this film! Game changer in action films… Features real Navy Seals! Watching again right now!
The film features its fair share of inspirational movie lines from the real life heroes that are our Navy SEALs. Capturing action sequences with men who live and breathe this for a living has given audiences not only the best battle scenes we’ve seen in some time, but some fantastic Act of Valor quotes to chew on for weeks to come.
Chief Dave: When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home. | permanlink
