According to Review of Lone Survivor 2013 Movie, there is no shortage of films about the war in Iraq in recent years , but there is a picture of the study, the conflict in Afghanistan focused so long and detailed ” Lone Survivor .” The scale is really personal , rather than analytical , presents one of the worst disasters in the history of the special forces as a sad tribute to fallen comrades in Luttrell , those looking for a more comprehensive history of the conflict , understanding the enemy mentality or a questioning criticism of the war on terrorism elsewhere. But to clear a path through the unabashedly patriotic tale memoir of the author ( co – written with Patrick Robinson) , Berg sought glory , without chauvinism , his subjects virtually eliminates enthusiastic rhetoric and attacks on the “liberal media” , the one whose demands for strict rules of engagement Luttrell , blames partly danger to him and his men in the first place.

If the book throughout the first half is compressed in the opening – credits sequence of the film, an education – movies montage suggests bracingly almost impossible levels of physical strength, mental strength and overall strength it takes to join the ranks of the Navy SEALs connect. Among these elite soldiers Hospital Corpsman Luttrell ( Mark Wahlberg ) , a young 29 year-old resident of Texas, and his friends , Lt. Michael Murphy ( Taylor Kitsch ) , Gunner buddy Danny P. Dietz (Emile Hirsch ) and Sonar Technician Matthew ” Axe ” Axelson ( Ben Foster ), everything in Afghanistan in 2005.
Berg is no stranger to American enclave of masculinity ( ” Friday Night Lights ” ) , or hell in the Middle East (“The Kingdom” ), but the prologue a lot of confidence ” Lone Survivor ‘s” life – in-the – military character delineation is weak, style of pedestrian observations marked with adoption – aesthetics video , all slipberättarröstoch music overactive (Steve Jablonsky ever thin and instrumental rock band Explosions in the Sky ) . Compared with intimacy and insight on ” Restrepo ,” Sebastian Junger and 2010 , the documentary by Tim Hetherington of Army troops in Afghanistan , the mix of camaraderie and competition here are others – macho rage . But the film begins to find its feet as it defines the strategic base for Operation Red Wings , a Taliban commander Ahmad Shah mission-oriented ( Yousuf Azami ) and his soldiers in the mountains of Kunar , where Murphy, Luttrell , Dietz and Axelson sent as a surveillance system – and – out square .
There is a problem when the four seals, although carefully hidden along the slopes of Sawtalo Sar , discovered by a trio of pastors Afghans. Although these unarmed civilians who do not seem to be associated with the Taliban , their hostility is clearly visible , and the SEALs have to decide whether to grant them dead silence of the shepherds – the right decision from a tactical point of view – or to let in freely under the Geneva Conventions . After some discussion talkative but excited about the potential impacts of both alternatives , the team , led by Murphy , strives to deliver them .
Confirmed the worst fears of seals, the younger of the goatherds shown running down the mountain – worthless , faux – Exciting slow – motion – to inform the Taliban leadership . Embarrassing because the film can be in these moments , sometimes completely immersive deadly ambush begins changes Mountain clumsy style : There’s a scary moment when Luttrell and his men a glimpse of Shah men lined up along a ridge away, drive home as a minority ( about 140 to four ) , chances of survival slim further weakened by their inability to contact HQ . The long time, about 40 minutes after a tour de force of physical mutilation stained with blood , because seals are surrounded on all sides by Taliban fighters , raining bullets and rocket-propelled grenades from their advantageous position higher on the mountain.
As Luttrell and his men returned fire , picking up no shortage of victims of the Taliban , which is not only the brutality of the action or the eerie omnipresence of the enemy, but also the robustness of the registers (New Mexico was in Afghanistan) . Colby Parker Jr. editing nerve and superficial , limited – the compositions given Tobias Schliesser are ideal for the horrors in this rough – and – tumble war , and all the agony of bullets ripping through flesh, the cruelest moments are the ones where SEALs take cover by throwing himself down, still obstacles sharp rocks and branches mortal under their feet . He works mainly thanks to the excellent quality of sound ( mixer David Brownlow ) and coordination fantastic ability of Kevin Scott , each fall , scraping and cursing discs with a tremendous impact. Of particular interest are the special makeup effects by Gregory Nicotero and Howard Berger, Prosthetic design ghastly wounds which the camera detects foreground ruthless , even viewers who claim to have seen everything is going to be hard not to hold back.
While the disappointing outcome of the story is pretty clear from the title , the chain of events as Luttrell is clear from this evidence – is fascinating and , ultimately , move freely for those who are not – including a daring helikopterräddningsförsökav scene with startling immediacy already aware show. Screenplay by Berg actually improved ( and necessarily truncated ) says the book heavily through storage of contextual information at the end , allowing the viewer to the full measure of fear and confusion Luttrell for his eventual recovery value. Suffice it to say that while ” Lone Survivor ” naturally invites debate on whether SEALs were right to let the goatherds in freedom, is courageous act is then reflected by another one-quarter of all unexpected , together these incidents bookending an implicit argument about the power of individual acts of conscience in the moral darkness of war .
Each of Luttrell killed three comrades will defy the last moment , taken with the heroism of the load position and the additional use of slow – mo . But a heart full gravity of these scenes are undermined by the fact that cooperation Wahlberg – the stars have not had many occasions for their characters beyond the usual demonstrations of courage, struggle – readiness, anger and despair identify. But the actors work well in and out of battle, with the ever chameleon Foster disappear as in his role as Axe, sharp and deadly as his nickname. Kitsch, as a refugee from Mountain ” Battleship ” leaves its traces promising career rehab here as Murphy, kind-hearted, the leader of the sacrifice of the team. Hirsch callowness gives a proposal by Dietz , the youngest of them, but not less than a fighter to the end.
If he is looking for his brothers hotheaded calm in the arm or pulling shrapnel from his leg , giving Wahlberg Luttrell steady emotional anchor , its hardness is leavened by a sense of vulnerable humanity. Among other actors , Eric Bana , and provides a welcome fame as Lt. . Erik S. Kristensen , especially seen in the recesses back to HQ . While the Arab thesps dropped primarily because of their ability to look menacing and using an AK -47 , Ali Suliman (recently seen in “The Attack” ) has a crucial role in the third act , evidence of the complexity of a cultural and political country where every man in a turban is necessarily an enemy.
