    Jeremy….don’t even think about seeing this film. I stared at my drink a good bit. I’m 43, packed theater with applause at the end.
    What disturbed me was that all the pain was happening not to a bunch of deserving bad guys but to America’s Best.
    This film has been compared to Saving Private Ryan but that felt like a movie. This film was very realistic and during the credits I and others were covertly wiping tears. I may be ruined for films like this. Michael’s review was very helpful as usual.
    God bless our troops. The good guys.

      I’m a vet and I was cryin’ in the dark, too, as the credits rolled and the American dead honored.

    Great film,, sad because the bad guys win,,,

    Too much of the “F” word,, i realize solders and sailors cuss, it would be unrealistic without these words,, but this was as bad as Scarface and Goodfellas, 4 F’s per sentence,,, not needed, and distracting,

    I thought the camera could have pushed back from the action a little. It’s such an immersive experience and thus very difficult to watch; it leaves very little to the imagination. I thought the two scenes of them tumbling down the mountain were ridiculous and unrealistic – I’m so proud of our men/women in uniform!

    I thought this was a great film and extremely intense. I have yet to read the book, but I will soon. Keep your eye out for a few cameos by Marcus Luttrell, the real life lone survivor, in some minor speaking scenes. The only thing I would say against the film regards a scene depicting the death of one of the soldiers. It especially over the top with its camera angle. I thought that particular treatment of that event was borderline disrespectful by the director and I would be angered if I were a family member. Despite that, this film is a tribute to the American soldier and a must watch for patriots and people passionate about history.
