    It's a strange amalgam of behind-the-scenes imagining, video simulations, archival footage and patriotic odes to the military regarding a rather recent event.

    [A] workmanlike and occasionally hokey retelling of now-familiar events. [2 Nov 2012, p.64]

    It's a decently made but hardly exceptional movie without any high wattage star power but with a few familiar faces.

    The movie holds these men and women up as heroes, but it makes them rather bland cardboard cutouts.

    The filmmaking is at times derivative and heavy-handed, and the score is unrelenting and unbearable: an electronic thumpa-thumpa pounding that sounds like music to inject blood boosters by.

    SEAL Team Six, though inevitably exciting in its conclusion and touching at times, refuses to commit either way. This failure of nerve not only dooms the film as both docu--and drama but also contradicts its main theme.

    Fine actors like William Fichtner, Robert Knepper and Anson Mount lend some credibility, but almost all of it is paper-thin, relying on Paul Haslinger's pulsating score to maintain and heighten a sense of tension.
