A perfect example of this process of public manipulation by the Department Of Defense is the movie ‘Act Of Valor’ which was released this year. The project actually started out as a high budget MILITARY RECRUITMENT FILM, and then morphed into a concept for a full length movie which features real life special-ops personnel and unprecedented access to military technology and machinery. Though the DoD claims it did not directly fund the film in any way, it did provide nearly every set piece that was essential to the movie’s creation, including the actors! The storyline of the flick was mediocre at its best, and shameless propaganda at its worst. So voracious is its one sided portrayal of the establishment war machine I believe it would make the likes of Goebells blush. If you have ever seen those BMW featurettes starring famous actors doing superhuman things in BMW vehicles, that is essentially what most Hollywood films about the U.S. military are now; multi-million dollar commercials designed to sell you on a candy-coated image of the military industrial complex.
