Lone Survivor is one of those movies that you would think far fetched if you didn’t know it was based on a true story.
Based on the excellent memoir of Marcus Luttrell, this tells the story of 4 Navy Seals who after following the rules of engagement are surrounded & outnumbered by a Taliban force in the mountains of Afghanistan.
Directed by Peter Berg, this is a tense, riveting, modern day war/action movie that sits alongside the likes of Black Hawk Down and Zero Dark Thirty very well.
Good performances from Mark Wahlberg & Eric Bana as his commander who sets out to rescue him.
