Mark Wahlberg knows how to act and produce a great movie.
Now that Mark Wahlberg has some movies he produced under his belt like Broken City and Prisoners, he knows officially how to make a great film. He understands what the audience wants, and what they want to see. Even if the audience can't handle seeing it or they don't want to see it. He truly is a one of a kind producer and he is years ahead of his time.
Lone Survivor is based on a real life failed mission called "Operation Red Wings." As you watch it you are reminded that this really happen, and when you see someone die on screen you will remember that person actually gave their life serving for our country and was killed in action as well.
This movie just goes to show you how Navy Seals act like, not to give too much away, but, because of one choice they decided to make, which was the right choice to do, they then in turned sacrificed their own lives for a good moral.
The scenes that were produced on screen are one of a kind scenes you don't often see in movies anymore. When they are battling and they have to jump off a cliff. The motions they go through are so realistic, you will feel that you are actually with them going down. This movie is a must see for anyone that wants to see how a actually Navy Seal works in the line of duty. As Mark Wahlberg worked with Marcus Luttrell who wrote the book for this movie and is the actually Navy Seal Mark Wahlberg plays in the movie.
Make sure you stay after the movie is over to see real life footage of the Navy Seals in the movie.
What would I have changed? (Spoilers)
There is not too much wrong with this movie. They should have added Chris Pratt to have played one of the Navy Seals in this movie. He would have added just a little more into this movie. If I were to change anything else in the movie it would have change it too much so it would have not been as good as it was.
