Michel D. (michelann) from WALNUT GROVE, MO
Reviewed on 8/25/2015...
With three timely historic missions to challenge the "Seals" this disk is filled with action. The conflicts in Grenada then Somalia and also Panama show how well trained and accomplished our special forces are. Thanks to them I know I sleep better at night!

Great, expectations met
Tricky D | Iraq | 03/31/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The first review is right on - with one exception. One cannot reasonably expect the military to give raw, first-person footage of a clandestine special operation. It seems the previous reviewer expected something in that area (how, i don't know). I am a US Army infantry soldier serving overseas. During the time at which i watched this on DVD, however, i was the stereotypical college male age 21. The video fulfilled all of my desires and expectations..it was exciting, reasonably accurate to military operation, showcased the use of some interesting and/or special equipment etc. Having said this after actually experiencing life in the military and military training (though by no means SEAL training), i give it 5 stars. I wrote this review for one reason: so nobody would be fooled by a 3 star rating. So long as the viewer doesn't expect a helmet cam, he or she will not be disappointed. As a matter of fact, after writing this review i'm going to have to get this shipped over to Iraq to watch it again."
Dramatic reenactment of 3 SEAL engagements
Gadgester | Mother Earth | 10/27/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)
"The miniseries supposedly originally aired on the Learning Channel. It has three 47-minute dramatic reenactment (i.e., staged by producers and played by actors) of three previously classified Navy SEAL engagements: Grenada (1983), Somalia (1991) and Panama (1989). These are engaging stories (no pun intended), and the production value is pretty good, but it's still a bit unsatisfactory to know all three episodes are not real footage of the real thing."
