SEAL Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin LadenIt was inevitable that Hollywood would make a movie about the raid that killed America’s most wanted. And celluloid got not one, but two. SEAL Team Six: The Raid of Osama Bin Laden came out first, playing on the National Geographic Channel and Netflix before its DVD and Blu-ray release. (The other is Zero Dark Thirty, which hits theaters the weekend after SEAL Team Six arrives on disc.)

In SEAL Team Six, Cam Gigandet (Pandorum), Anson Mount (Burning Palms), Freddy Rodriguez (TV’s Six Feet Under) and Xzibit (Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans) are among the SEALs called to a secret and important mission. Kathleen Robertson (TV’s Boss) plays Vivian, the agent who has been tracking Osama Bin Laden and believes she has identified the compound where the Al Quaida leader has been hiding. Robert Knepper (TV’s SGU: Stargate Universe) is the Lieutenant Commander of the team, and Eddie Kaye Thomas (American Reunion) is one of the executives in the White House while the mission is going on.

The 90-minute, not rated film got mixed reviews from critics. Newsday‘s Verne Gay called it “not great, not terrible.” Hollywood Reporter‘s Tim Goodman said the movie “feels like a documentary at times, a cheesy docudrama at others.” Agreed on all counts by us at Disc Dish.

Special features on the DVD include a making-of featurette.
