This review is from: Lone Survivor [DVD] (DVD)
May contain spoilers
based on Lutterels book as he is the lone survivor refered to in the title. A 4 man seal team set up an observation post waiting fo rthier target but are discovered and the choice between executing the shepards or letting them go to warn the taliban leads to thier future problem of having to fight them off till the cavalry arrives. This is not entirely an acurate portrayl of the story but it is handles well and teh portrayl of how seals fight and move and talk is pretty good. there will be moments where people see it as jingoistic, but I have to say after meating a few seals over the years, its preety much how they talk and how they encourage each other. only one moment did I find it a bit over done but the rest I pretty much accepted as likely.
all in all alot of action but also a thoughtful piece on how order gets to chaos and how men handle chaos under fire
