Lone Survivor is a film based on Eyewitness Accounts of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10. The book, which is available on Amazon.com was written by Marcus Luttrell and Patrick Robinson. Marcus is a retired Navy Seal awarded a Navy Cross and Purple Heart for his actions on June 2005. Mark Wahlberg stars in the film, which is scheduled to debut 27 Dec 2013.
I’m not real big on war movies because they are “generally” not well done and serve to feed the notion that there’s glamor in war. Lone Survivor seems to break that mold and looks to be every bit as good as Saving Private Ryan. In my book, that makes it worthwhile watching; meanwhile, check out the trailer.
