A film by Peter Berg
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch
Yes someone told me one time that 2000 soldier apply to be navy seals and about 20 makes it, that’s how hard it is to finish the training and if you graduate you are one the best and toughest dude on the planet. Of course you have to work as a team and every team has to have a good leader. This film is based on a true story. Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg) is a member of Seal Team 10 stationed in Afghanistan. In June 2005 four members of this team will go on a mission to kill Ahmad Shah (Yousef Azami). The other members of this group are Michael Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), Danny Dietz (Emile Hirsch), and Matt Axelson (Ben Foster). The code name for the mission was Operation red wings. They plan their mission and are drop off in the mountains Shah and soon get into trouble. They surprise a bunch of shepherd but unfortunately the leader of the seal releases them. Mistake big mistake one of them gets down as fast as he can to warn the Taliban. The seal get lost and soon after that the Taliban are firing and trying to kill the team. Their radio does have a signal so they can get a rescue to get there in time when they do radio them finally the rescue is a disaster and result in more death.
Great film by Perter Berg who portrays those heroes as true to the book as possible. 3 weeks of training for the actors so they look like navy seals on-screen of course supervise by the lone survivor himself Marcus. Thank god that this film has avoid the hollywood trap. it would been glamorized to death and the film would been not good. The film was shot in 40 days. The tension and the fighting that those soldiers is frighting, it seems to me that they killed a lot of Taliban but more were coming in. They did some serious damage to the Taliban. Thank god for a village near by that saved Marcus. Great acting from all the actors. May they rest in peace.
