Lone Survivor is based on the true life story of four Navy SEALS on a reconnaissance mission (Operation Red Wings) that goes terribly wrong.
Rating: 4/5 stars
Very, very good movie! The creators and actors did a very good job of pulling the viewer into the lives of the soldiers and their mission, and while I've never been in the military or Afghanistan, I certainly became tied to each character, and felt every fall, break, injury, etc. that they encountered. Mark Wahlberg was great as always, and I'm really glad that this soldier's story was told. So often, we are clueless about what goes on during missions or what soldiers experience in the military.
