Movie Review: Lone Survivor

The story of Marcus Luttrell, former US Navy Seal, and his surviving an encounter w/ Taliban insurgents in 2005. 

I have to say I enjoyed this movie even though I still can't see Mark Wahlberg as anything but Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch to this day. I got to hear Luttrell at the NRA meeting back in '08 so knew alot of the story involved and he has several cameo's throughout the movie. It didn't delve much into character development and focused primarily on action but those scenes were done well enough for you to get attached to several of the individuals involved. The 'falling' scenes made my back and legs hurt. My biggest gripe were the AK's used by the Afghani's were WAY to clean.

This likely won't be a purchase or regular view but it is definitely worth seeing.

4.5/5 stars.

If you can get through the photo montage at the end without tears in your eyes, you are a hard sumbitch.
