I guess the hype is that there some real SEALS and that is good and bad. The battle scenes look good, but the acting is mechanical. They use a lot of real world military and SOF terminology. The tactics are mostly sound but everyone is always all bunched together I guess that is so they can be in the shot. The story is based on real life events but there is a lot of artistic license to make it Hollywood friendly and is sorta predictable (same thing they did in BHD reduce the number of characters so the audience can relate better) Overall leaves ya feeling patriotic. It is a good action movie.
