There are other Charlie Sheen Movies worth watching also.

It has awful dialog and an absolutely trite story.

Interesting plot, with a never before done ending, great stunts(ie the 1 mile parachute drop) strong cast, perfect acting, and the last twenty minutes keeps you on the edge of you seat.

And, with Lewis Teague ("Alligator", "Cujo") in the directors' chair, and plenty of very rousing second unit action work, we're assured a pretty entertaining time.

Dullest men-on-a-mission thriller ever .

Pure NAVY Seal adrenaline.

Overall, the film was entertaining, exciting, thrilling and plain fun.

But the "heroes" are just as lame and uninteresting.

Mindless but Entertaining Action Flick .

Besides the film being predictable from the first frame, it is also unrealistic, embarrassingly juvenile, and highly racist, a piece of anti-Arab propaganda whose only redeeming factor is to remind us that the anti-Arab thing is deeply embedded in our so-called culture.

A predictable action romp that fails to impress .

This is by far the dullest action movie I've seen in years, maybe even of all-time.

A waste of time, energy and money.

Rick Rossovich also did some excellent acting in this film, I really found it enjoyable to watch him act as Leary and I just loved watching him act in this film.

An engaging action movie with an intense soundtrack and a film that has overall stood the test of time.

Unbelievable in spots, but that is done for an entertaining story.

It was mad simply to be loud and entertaining.

The Rock - the unwatchable Michael Bay/Nicholas Cage exploding blockbuster escapade which somehow has over 7.0 rating.

Yes, it's not too realistic, but such a movie would most probably be boring (check how it worked out in The Finest Hour).

The script is very predictable and the action scenes are monotonous, even if they are well made.

The film is a little too much and the melodramatic moments slow this film down.

It is Very entertaining.

The setting is actually intriguing, and pretty exciting.

The precision teamwork of Navy Seals is thrilling to observe.

Unconvincing and predictable .

Worth watching .

We also get a lot of boring shootouts as well if that intrigues you.

Pretty bland characters overall despite some good action sequences.

But the Paxton character is not a major one, and the other two guys that get focused on are very bland and no one really has a memorable name so the whole time I just thought "There's those guys again".

Although it does give in to absurdity (like having Hawkins chase a tow truck on a bike, to retrieve his automobile), "Navy SEALS" is thoroughly enjoyable for this kind of straightforward entertainment.

To this day it has one of the most exciting opening sequences I've ever seen in action fare.

Only a few scenes hold much entertaining value, and the supposed finale is half-hashed.

Poor 2-dimensional characters, uninspiring action sequences, and lack of a decent script have regrettably marred a film that promised so much.

If you want an nonstop, adrenaline filled, action packed movie that kicks ass and shows what its like to be part of the world'd most elite soldiers, than Navy Seals is for you.

What a boredom.

It is very entertaining.

The good old evil Russians have been replaced with the boring old Middle Eastern terrorist.

It definitely provides a boost of adrenaline to all couch potatoes and action junkies, not to mention any of those who have either served in the military or were born in military households like myself!

) Thanks to the stubbornness and tenacity of the cast, though, "Navy SEALs" went through a lot of revisions (which you'll see if you ever see any of the script drafts, reader's coverage, or the novelization) and actually came out as a straightforward, enjoyable actioner that's still watchable after more than 10 years.

This marriage scene is predictable because we know that he his going to be killed partway through the movie and the men are going to have to come to terms with his death, and his fiancé is going to be mourning because she never got to marry him.

Frequently boring, plot less, and a load of rubbish to boot, this is neither exciting nor thrilling and is thoroughly forgettable.

Worth watching.

It's about as deep as a puddle but undeniably entertaining.

Yes, boredom is the movie's biggest problem.

This film appears to be a vehicle for Charlie Sheen who was at the height of his intense period.

Final Thoughts: Poorly written, underdeveloped characters and a slow pace sink this one.

Other than an isolated goofy music-laden golfing scene to show the guys bonding while not killing terrorists, the film is pretty slow and somber by action standards.

I don't recommend this film, as it's bland, drags and has nothing lovable about it.

Overall, I found this movie very entertaining (The opening hostage rescue scene being the highlight of the movie).

Unfortunately this movie proves to be predictable and is little more than a copy of the Delta Force.

Supposedly the romantic middle third would have appealed to a female audience but both the on screen chemistry and the writing is very weak which means being composed of an an audience of 50 per cent bored males and 50 per cent bored females .

It has lots of action, some civilian life of the seals, and overall enjoyable performances including from the ever so controversial Charlie Sheen.

There's some good action sequences, that are well staged, some quite thrilling, and we also see how the seals spent their time off their field, boozing of playing cheat golf, via use of golf buggys.

Navy Seals is really enjoyable to watch.

More entertaining then Top Gun by miles.

I highly recommend it to anyone that's a fan of action films.

Big, exciting action, signed, SEALED, and delivered .

Old-fashioned and somewhat corny but still fairly entertaining action thriller .

He is an adrenaline junkie who would rampage into Hell with a bucket of ice-water before he realized how he had imperiled himself.

This film was a very intense film with excellent action and an awesome soundtrack.

it was still entertaining.

It's dull plot and premise won't make this an enjoyable movie to trash in a crowd, and its boring execution will put a lot of viewers to sleep.

A pointless waste of time .

most action flicks these days are so cliche and incorporate too much Hollywood special effects and little reality...

Enjoyable .
