I’ll say it now, despite much hate coming my way, I liked Goodfellas better than The Godfather. I bring that up because I believe true stories make for better films and Lone Survivor is no exception of that theory.
Lone Survivor was adapted from the Marcus Luttrell book of the same name. It was directed by Peter Berg and stars Mark Wahlberg. Centering around the four members of SEAL Team 10 who were tasked with “Operation Red Wings” a failed mission to capture or kill notorious Taliban leader Ahmad Shahd.
War films tend to be quite repetitive, but there was a different feel to Lone Survivor. You’re on the edge of your seat from start to finish. You’re left in suspense listening for footsteps in the forest. When Matt ‘Axe’ Axelson (Foster) mutters the feeling that their operation is cursed, you know you’re in for a ride.

Immediately you feel an emotional connection with them and sure, some credit of that goes to the writing and the film’s opening scene where they show footage of Navy SEALS going through their brutal training.
Lone Survivor is a dark horse going into award season and I wouldn’t be surprised if it picked up some gold. I’m also positive this film will spark up conversations on the military and politics, put that all aside and look at the quality and from a film stand point, its starting entertainment off with a bang in 2014.
