Old_toto agrees with auntiejackie but scoring 1/2 star less than she because frequent injections of propaganda causes brain itch.

Very intense! I read the book, and there is much more to the story.

This one is not worth watching. It is severely stupid, horrendously horrible, and entirely unentertaining.

Not a big fan of Mark Wahlburg and was disappointed when you start off the movie knowing he was playing the Lone Survivor.

Otherwise, movie was okay. I would never have guessed that a real life person could survive basically throwing themselves off cliffs not once or twice but three times. Since I don't know which is "true story" and which is "based on a true story", I can't speak to the authenticity of that part. I didn't feel like I wasted that time, but it's not something I'm going to watch again.

Maybe it's me - I don't usually watch war movies but do like to watch movies about true events, so that's why I chose this film. Maybe I was not paying close enough attention or something, but I could never figure out who was who or what was actually going on. Maybe if I had read about it before seeing the movie I would have enjoyed this movie more.

This was a great war movie until the last 15 minutes or so. Everything we saw during the first 95 minutes was pretty much what really happened. It was very smartly filmed and very realistic. However, the fictional part about an Afghan village rising up and fighting the Taliban in order to protect one wounded American soldier was not credible. In reality, they did hide the soldier, but never had a gunfight with the Taliban over him. It would have been a better movie is they stuck to the real historical events until the end.

The movie had some incredibly beautiful scenes which made me feel guilty in the context of war. All and all a beautiful and real drama about hard choices and the choices we choose to live with.

It's my personal opinion that more attention should have been paid to the Afghan villagers who did save the life of the lone surviving Seal - without their stance of protectiveness this story would not have been told.

Great movie really heart warming and inspiring inspired me to become a navy seal

I served a tour in Vietnam; S/Sgt, USMC. I read the book and I saw the movie. There is a small amount of "Hollywood license", but very little. Great of some of you to offer your political views, but they are merely asking for your review of the movie. As for the "unrealistic" folks, you obviously haven't spent any time in the military, or, more importantly, in an actual combat situation. If you had, you would not have said it was unrealistic at all. Frankly, when I was in Cambodia and Laos in the early '70's, I would have given a lot to have Navy Seals by my side.

This movie is a true story of an event that happened in afghanistan in 2005 when a Seal team accidentally encountered some "innocent" muslims during a recon mission.
Because the Seals are honorable human beings, and they believed the muslims, when they "promised" they were just shepherds, the Seals wished them on their way.
However, the muslims, who are not honest nor honorable, immediately ran to the Taliban to squeal on the Seals position. The muslims were vicious murderers, and went out of their way to murder the Seals. Out of their way. The so called shepherds' lied to the Seals, and instead were responsible for getting them all horrifically murdered. This is the True account of what transpired. Moral of the story?.. It's obvious when you see what they did to the Seals.OR, never trust a muslim. They pretended they were nice and innocent, and gave them their word of honor. But they lied to themand got them savagely murdered

At end of movie:

The Afghan villagers who protected Marcus did so out of duty to their 2000 year old code of honor known as Pashtunwali.

Pashtunwali requires a tribe to undertake the responsibility of safeguarding an individual against his enemies and protecting him at all costs.

Marcus saved by tribal law Lokhay (from the book
Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10);

Lokhay means not only providing care and shelter, it means an unbreakable commitment to defend that wounded man to the death. And not just the death of the principal tribesman or family who made the original commitment for the giving of a pot. It means the whole damned village. Lokhay means the population of that village will fight to the last man, honor-bound to protect the individual they have invited in to share their hospitality. And this is not something to have a chitchat about when things get rough. It’s not a point of renegotiation. This is strictly nonnegotiable ... These friendly Pashtun tribesmen had decided to grant me lokhay. They were committed to defend me against the Taliban until there was no one left alive.

Marcus:
There is no question
a part of me will forever be
up on that Mountain, dead...
As my brothers died.
But there is a part of me that
lived because of my brothers.
Because of them, I
am still alive.
And I can never forget that
no matter how much it hurts,
how dark it gets, or
how far you fall...
