Lone Survivor (2013)


Mark Wahlberg
Taylor Kitsch
Emile Hirsch
Ben Foster
Eric Bana

Directed by Peter Berg

Lone Survivor is the name of the movie and from which you can guess that in the end there was only a Lone Survivor and from the posters, you can also ascertain that it was Mark Whalberg, so no surprises there.

Well I guess a movie about soldiers dying for their country will always have the audience respect, but that isn’t what made Lone Survivor cool, it was the screenplay. The movie started with the regular intro of all the cast involved, then it showed us the situation at hand and then there was a huge bang, and from then on the movie continued on a high to the very end. That is what makes Lone Survivor cool, it is the high, I’m not a drug user, but I can bet that the high that this movie delivers is as equal to that a user will get from a drug.

The acting is not one you will even want to diss, it was first class, the intensity was engaging at every turn there is something to make you not want to miss anything. Then there is the depth the movie was able to pass across in a few minutes of the intro, I felt the pain of the dead soldiers families, because the screenplay pulls you into their lives in just a brief moment.
Peter Berg did a great job in the screenplay adaptation of the book Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell and Patrick Robinson, which was based on a true story.

Class is what this movie delivers and the sound is just epic, the sound of the gun fire was what caught my attention after watching a clip on the way guns really sound as the clip was trying to defuse some of the Hollywood lies, I was impressed how this movie made good use of sound.

The film is based on SEAL Team 10's failed mission: Operation Red Wings on June 28, 2005, to capture and kill a notorious Taliban leader during the War in Afghanistan, in an effort to kill and capture a notorious Taliban figurehead. (Source: Wikipedia)

To cap it off in this movie’s ending, before the credits came rolling in we are shown the soldiers (real ones) who partook in this failed mission. I really recommend this movie for all to see, it is one that I believe will stand tall when you are rating the best of the best in war movies.
