Marcus Luttrell and his team set out on a mission to capture or kill notorious Taliban leader Ahmad Shah, in late June 2005. Marcus and his team are left to fight for their lives in one of the most valiant efforts of modern warfare.
This is based on a true story. This is the saddest part about this movie. That all of this actually happened. The movie itself is really good. It is just painful to watch. I do not know how factual this movie is. It is action packed while making your nerves on edge.
Watching this movie and knowing that this really happened to these poor men, make it so hard to watch all of what is going on. These poor men were doing their job and duty for their country. They were killed for big business and oil money.
This movie looks great and at times a bit too real. The cast for the movie were great for the day. They chose a cast of younger men that are more butch and manly to portray these fallen soldiers. It was just weird why they mostly all shaved their bodies. I do not get that.
This is a really good movie to watch. It is just one of those that is difficult to watch at time, since it is a true event. Enjoy.
