#1 The "actuals" weekend b.o. come out on Monday afternoon, and judging from SRO reports from around the country, this is a certified hit.
Almost comically, lefty critics abhor it, with a 31% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but the public reviews are 85% favorable with glowing reviews.
Some viewers have noted that the violence is very graphic, and is too much for some. Also that unlike Hollywood movies, this does not disparage or look for flaws in the SEALs, nor does it try to undermine their heroism in any way.

#3 ...but we were assured by the Hollyweird types that after a series of (anti-)war movies that the public wasn't interested in this sort of stuff. Ah, yes, someone in finally remembered the old adage - if you want to send a message, use Western Union.
As for the critics, it's a self identifying posting that they are indeed above the mob and truly live in a alternate world elite.

#4 I plan on seeing this. My money goes towards good movies where I don't get preached at. Captain America was the first movie I went to see in the theater in 4 years.
