POSTERS

Preview: Act of Valor (2012)

Synopsis:

Real life, active duty Navy Seals star in a fictionlized look at their tactics and weaponry. The film's plot revolves around a young undercover operative captured by the enemy.

  • Poster: D

Review:

This is an example where simplicity of concept doesn't translate well to the poster design. It tries to evoke a sense of place and space without excitement.

  • Trailer: B; C

Review:

The first trailer is fairly exciting and uses a good, rousing song to demonstrate its purported coolness.

Seeing so little change in the second trailer leads me to believe that producers are simply making a recruitment film and little else.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
