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 (The Fighter) 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."

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.
One thing I always thought was that all teenagers in their senor year must watch Band of Brothers and write a report on each episode. I would include this movie in with Band of Brothers. These young people need to understand what the price of their freedoms was. They need to understand what the flag means to us Vets and what price was paid. What the price was for them to have the freedom to protest as they please.
There is no respect anymore from the younger generations for anything. It is sad to see.
