    Lone Survivor

    A LGS was giving away passes to a pre-release screening of the movie Lone Survivor and Stove Jr and I went over to pick a few up this afternoon.


    Just got home - what a movie!


    It is a very well done, extremely realistic account of a true story of a mission undertaken by a Seal Team in Afghanistan. Not only is the story well done but it is also a very moving tribute to our men and women in the Armed Forces. Lots of sniffling and blurry vision on the way out....



    Everyone in America should see this movie.


    For me personally, it can't be said enough - THANK YOU for all that served and are still serving our country. What you do makes it possible for the rest of us to be who we are and that is a debt that we can never repay. God bless you all.

    I plan on seeing it. I might even splurge and see it in a theater.

    I just hope it is a better representation of the Afghan war than Hurt Locker was for Iraq. I do understand that they are movies made for entertainment, and hence will never be truly accurate, but since the vast majority of the populace gets their knowledge of our wars from popular media, I'd prefer that they get something worthy of the sacrifices made so that Hollywood has freedom to make their movies.

    From what I've heard, Marcus Lattrell was on the set as an advisor and was able to keep the movie very authentic. Planning on seeing it at a matinee next week.

    Yes, very well done. Wife and I saw it as a pre-view last month. You hold your breathe for the last hour or so of the movie! Well worth your time and money to see it.

    Haven't seen it, but plan to. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Link to the film overview, showtimes: Lone Survivor film @ Fandango. Starts Jan 10.

    Trailer for the film: Lone Survivor @ Fandango.


    Lone Survivor tells an incredible, true tale of heroism, courage and survival.

    Four Navy SEALs on a covert mission to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda operative 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 resilience as they stay in the fight to the finish.

    Mark Wahlberg stars as Marcus Luttrell, the author of the first-person memoir Lone Survivor, whose bestselling 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.

    Also starring Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster, Lone Survivor is written and directed by Peter Berg, who again crafts a striking portrait of the unbreakable bonds between men that he first explored in Friday Night Lights.

    Yes, excellent book. The decisions our military men and women have to make and then live with are unfathomable to me. They have my greatest respect.

    I read the book just recently and gave it to several people as gifts. Its an incredible story of the heroism of these brave men who fight and die for our country and do it without thinking twice.

    I will see the movie in theaters for sure.

    4 guys taking out 80 or so Taliban by themselves is incredible by itself, let alone the rest of the story.

    I'm not spending my money to see anything Wahlberg does.

    Hey, he's got to prove that his acting job is more like serving in the military than Tom Cruise's job.
    To have such problems.

    I have to see the movie & get the book. It would be sacrilege if I didn't. I'd also better start using FrogLube (made by SEALs) for the same reason.

    I'm pretty sure Cruise was actually eligible to serve in the military, unlike Wahlberg.
