Movie Reviews

Excellent video, I watch it again and again
Jonathan N. Klein | 12/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an exceptional representation of Navy SEAL training. The video goes into extraordinary detail, and really makes you understand what these young men go through. Despite its length, I have watched it upwards of five times. Each time I find it educational, impressive, and inspiring. After seeing this film you understand why less than 20% of BUD/S trainees make it through, and why less than 0.5% of soldiers in the Navy are SEALs.

Also highly recommended for anyone considering applying to BUD/S. It certainly lets you know what you are getting into."
Excellent Overview of BUDS Progam

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This gives the viewer an insight to the training and expertise that these warriors who make it through the program have to meet and exceed to qualify for advanced dive training. Their continued existence in the program demands that they complete advanced dive school as well as parachute training, demolition, advanced first aid, and possibly language schools. They are some of the most highly trained professionals of our military services. This series only covers the first six-months of basic training which readies the candidates who complete this training to proceed to more of the same physical demands coupled with classroom training in myraid of other pertinent areas."
The few, the proud, the warrior elite...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This six-hour documentary holds up well after repeated viewings. It offers a fascinating glimpse into the Darwinian selection process that goes into becoming a U.S. Navy SEAL. It is well nigh impossible to view it without coming away extremely impressed. The commitment and sacrifice it takes to survive BUDS training is amazing, requiring an almost unfathomable level of endurance, physical strength and mental toughness.

Through the six hours, you start to identify with various characters - Rivera, Lively, Legg, Kolarov, Geddys, etc. -- as the original class of about 130 is winnowed down to about 19. This truly is the ultimate "Survivor" process with real-world stakes. When you think this is just the start of SEAL training, it becomes even more impressive in that context.

"Navy Seals -- BUDS Class 234" is a classic. Whatever challenges you face in your life, this documentary will put those in perspective and inspire you to take on some of the same indomitable spirit that characterizes US Navy SEALS.
