Act of Valor (Blu-ray release 2012-6-5) was originally intended to be a recruitment movie.  This explains why this movie neither has a complete story nor a focus on a few important characters.  As my coworker says, this is an educational video, and I think he is absolutely right.  The value of this movie lies in its more realistic view of military teamwork, how their missions are carried out, and how they communicate.  If one prefers a movie with more story and more excitement, they should look elsewhere.
