Reviews

Based on The New York Times bestselling true story of heroism, courage and resilience, Lone Survivor tells the incredible tale of four Navy SEALs on a covert mission to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda operative who are ambushed by the enemy in the mountains of Afghanistan. Faced with an impossible moral decision, the small band is isolated from help and surrounded by a much larger force of Taliban ready for war. As they confront unthinkable odds together, the four men find reserves of strength and bravery as they stay in the fight to the finish.

Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter, Contraband) leads the cast as Marcus Luttrell, the author of the first-person memoir “Lone Survivor,” whose book has become a motivational resource for its lessons on how the power of the human spirit is tested when we are pushed beyond our mental and physical limits.

Starring alongside Wahlberg as the other members of the elite team who gave everything for their brothers-in-arms are Taylor Kitsch (Savages, Friday Night Lights) as Michael Murphy, Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild, television’s Bonnie and Clyde) as Danny Dietz and Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma, Kill Your Darlings) as Matthew “Axe” Axelson. Eric Bana (Star Trek, Hanna) joins the core team as Erik Kristensen, their commanding officer in Afghanistan.

Special Features
  • Will of the Warrior: An in-depth look at Marcus Luttrell; how and why he became a Navy Seal and where he is today.
  • Bringing the Story to Light: Marcus Luttrell’s story of survival in dire circumstances serves as an inspiration to all that hear it. Director/producer/writer Peter Berg, producer Sarah Aubrey, and the four main cast members reveal their passion for the project and why it was so important to them to tell this story.
  • Recreating the Firefight: This high energy, action-packed piece reveals how the massive gunfight and bone-smashing tumbles were choreographed and shot.

Family members give intimate accounts of what these brave men were like in their private lives, providing perspective on their decision to join the military and make the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Also included is a tribute to the team of Operation Red Wings, using personal photos and home videos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous film with depth (if you look for it). 16 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray
I'll begin by saying I rate this film as right up with with the very best of grim, realistic modern war movies like Black Hawk Down or The Hurt Locker.

Pretty much every other positive review talks about the really exciting action sequences, great performances and fab cinematography. All this is true. If like me, you are a fan of Friday Night Lights, you'll find a lot of similarities, as the music is by Explosions In The Sky (as FNL) and Taylor Kitsch and Peter Berg are re-teaming from FNL. The reason I bring a series about a High School Football team into it is that it was a series that felt real - as does this and had much greater depth than you might have expected - as does this.

I think Berg as a writer does a very good job honouring the SEALs but also really does a good job or portraying ordinary Afghans positively - or certainly even handedly. At the end there is some on screen text explaining Afghan guest customs, but I think too, you can read between the lines of the film and see that fundamentally the ordinary Afghan villagers are no friends of the Taliban and are as sick of them and sickened by them as we might be.

It IS a bit gung ho at times, and you do wonder about some of the tactical decisions that were made, but that doesn't and shouldn't detract from what is an exciting and very unusual story, that is tremendously well acted, directed and shot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost there. 31 Dec 2013
By Monk
Format:DVD
Remarkable representation of an all out firefight between a small contingent of US Navy Seals & a fairly large group of Taliban forces in Afghanistan.

The Seals are sent in, covertly, to capture, or kill, Taliban leader Ahmad Shahd. They succeed in finding Shahd and his group of Taliban fighters but something goes very wrong and they are left to fend for themselves against insurmountable odds.

Outgunned and with communications down they come under heavy fire from their opponents and the film tells the gripping, and true, story of the battle that ensues.

This film is extremely well put together and the photography is excellent, with all the actors playing their parts very believably. The director uses some 'poetic license' towards the end of the film but throughout the viewer is engaged in an almost 'Apocalypse Now' experience.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performances, true story. 22 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
Incredibly powerful film. Shows the combined strength of those who defend our counties, and without getting all overly patriotic about it, this film does make you think a lot about those who protect us.

As a side note, i watched an extended feature of this on Youtube. Mark Wahlberg met the parents of the real life character he was playing and he promised them that he would play the part as true to real life as he could. Needless to say the acting was incredibly good, everything felt so real. Not only Mark Wahlberg but the other actors were excellent too.

The storyline itself is based on true events, we all know what this means. It was sometimes hard to believe the scenes depicted could ring true to real life but I suppose we will never know the extend of what really happened. It had exceptional cinematography, and it is a film at the end of the day. I loved it.

There was a dedicated ending to the fallen soldiers complete with their real life pictures. I really liked this, very respectful.

4.5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars A fast-paced, fantastically filmed fire-fight 10 April 2014
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Lone Survivor is the story of Operation Red Wings and specifically the Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell (played by Mark Wahlberg - Shooter). A contingent of four Navy Seals are sent to apprehend the Taliban fighter Ahmad Shah who is responsible for the deaths of many U.S. Marines in the area. Dispatched as a four man team, they are dropped high in the mountains of Afghanistan to locate their target, as they proceed further into the hills, they lose their comms signal. The guys are stumbled across by some goatherds and then face a difficult decision of whether to terminate the mission or terminate the innocents who will report them to the Taliban in the area, with no guidance from higher-up due to the comms situation. The team is surrounded by Taliban fighters and badly outnumbered, an intense & protracted firefight ensues that will test the limit of their endurance and their brotherhood to breaking point. Can anyone make it out alive?

Joining Mark Wahlberg as Marcus Luttrell are Taylor Kitsch as Lieutenant Michael Murphy; Emile Hirsch as Danny Dietz; Ben Foster as Matt `Axe' Axelson and Eric Bana as Erik Kristensen. Whilst the title of the film may betray the ending, it does not mean the journey there is any less intriguing or exciting - the film has an excellent military feel, with attitudes to equipment & discipline being authentic. This actual operation happened as detailed in Marcus Luttrell's book of the same name - although there is a fair bit of poetic license used in the exact composition of the story but it is respectable nonetheless, credit to Peter Berg for the excellent direction.
