Based on The New York Times bestselling true story of heroism, courage and survival, Lone Survivor tells the incredible tale of four Navy SEALs on a covert mission to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda operative. The four men must make an impossible moral decision in the mountains of Afghanistan that leads them into an enemy ambush. As they confront unthinkable odds, the SEALs must find reserves of strength and resilience to fight to the finish. Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg (2 Guns) leads an all-star cast including Taylor Kitsch (Savages), Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild), and Eric Bana (Munich) in a movie hailed by critics as "unforgettable, tense, and inspiring."

As in most wars, some very tough decisions have to be made that will surprise you, not only by US Military personnel, but also by the indigenous people. Their actions provide a glimmer of hope for the survival of man's humanity. What makes this movie even more powerful is that it is based upon events that actually happened.
This is not a movie for anyone under the age of 17 and may be difficult even for adults to watch, but if you can stomach the violent brutal nature of combat, you will be surprised at the compassion still remaining in people fighting and living in countries in war.
And if you get upset about the lack of support provided this SEAL team, don't internalize it or just talk about it, do something. Write your Senator, Congressman, and President and tell them to either send more troops to Afghanistan, per the original request by the Joint Chiefs, or else get our boys the H*ll out of there. Their lives are far too valuable to risk by under supporting.
I gave this movie 4 stars instead of 5 only because I find it hard to love a realistic war movie, I can like it, but I'm not sure that I will ever love it.
I recommend this movie to anyone above the age of 16 who wants to get a glimpse of what war (combat) is really like and just how great the American soldier is that is fighting it.
Apart from these observations I thought tha the execution of the action was great. In my mind this movie rates five stars because what was done was well done and that the public needs to know the tragic extent of the sacrifice these men are making.l
Without spoiling the story snd treatment in film, it's visceral visual velocity impacts the mind and senses in a way few movies do, but not to overwhelm in classic blockbuster fashion, rather to infiotm as Act of Valor does so well, almost quietly so, speaking more by its humble seriousness thsn big explosions and special effects. There's personality aplenty but as a sense of community of extraordinary guys, when all goes sideways, in so many ways. Catch a glimpse as they let you in to share a remarkable event and its importance.
