LastResort1

LastResort2

This is one of those shows that got cancelled earlier then it should have, if you haven’t seen it then you should, 13 episodes and all of them keep you on edge. The story is different, a US Navy Nuclear Sub turning against the US Government because of the plot to destroy them and cover it up. The story keeps developing and gets more intense, I’m just very happy that they at least gave it an ending, albeit not the best one but still an high note at the end to one very dramatic show. This show seriously should not have been cancelled, it had all the intricacies of a complex action/political show to play out with an interesting twist, which it did to a degree. I have been putting off watching the end of the show, but after I did I’m glad I did, its one of those shows that just leaves you on a good note and your happy you watched it. I notice that shows that paint the US Government in a bad way militarily or as if there is a government conspiracy going on, they don’t tend to play out, just like the show Jericho from 2006.

Review: Act Of Valor

An elite team of Navy SEALs embark on a covert mission to recover a kidnapped CIA agent.

This isn’t your usual movie, and the people recruited for this movie were real soldiers, this isn’t an Oscar movie, it has a real feel to it and a few actors in the right place. The movie revolves around a US Navy Seal Team, and then they slowly piece together a threat against the United States which in turn puts them in different areas to fight for more intel and the bad guys. What these guys lose in acting they make up for in passion, and at some points it feels like the game Battlefield Modern Warfare, you are right behind the scope from point to point against the bad guys. Don’t expect a high level of acting just enjoy the simple story and the ridiculous action. Worth watching if you have the time.
