Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Unfortunately, [Teague is] working from a cliche-choked, insensitive script."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"Navy Seals stands out among this summer's violence-oriented pictures as the only one that doesn't leave your brain feeling like mashed potatoes."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"Good, solid entertainment -- that`s what Navy SEALs provides in a winning package worth the price of admission."
‑ Candice Russell, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Director Lewis Teague lets off the requisite number of explosions, but the script is riddled with clichés and Sheen is hardly a charismatic lead."
‑ John Ferguson, Radio Times
"I was bored silly by the Crayola mechanics. Navy Seals hasn't aged well, and now I rather hate my younger self for ever buying into the mentally challenged antics of the film."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"Director Teague does stage the action sequences with logic and clarity, though there isn`t much he can do with the dramatic passages."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune
"It's difficult to accept these trained SEALs as anything more than a species of Dirty Dozen."
‑ Peter Rainer, Los Angeles Times
"Anyone in the market for some B-film Arab-bashing might find this movie tolerable entertainment. It's otherwise destined to make its biggest impact among Charlie Sheen archivists."
‑ Ralph Novak, People Magazine
"Who wrote this -- Oliver North?"
‑ Gary Thompson, Philadelphia Daily News
"[It] amounts to a less-than-involving two-hour commercial for the Navy."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The movie is full of macho swagger and unabashed hero-worship."
‑ Desmond Ryan, Philadelphia Inquirer
"It's the dullest action movie since The Green Berets."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"A very pompous version of the kind of nonsense Chuck Norris has been doing in far less embarrassing fashion for so many years."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"US foreign policy is reduced to shots of aircraft carriers and hard men shooting their way through various locations."
‑ , Total Film
"Not entirely bereft of entertainment value, even if most of it comes in the "unintentional" variety."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
