Peter Berg, all is forgiven. Though the director once brought us the absolutely awful Battleship, now he has completely redeemed himself with Lone Survivor, a gripping and rousing tribute to the United States servicemen who risk their lives each and every day in the name of their country. It feels strange to be reviewing Berg’s film – as if I could ever criticize it for attempting to honor those men and women by viscerally depicting just a handful of them making the ultimate sacrifice in combat. No, Lone Survivor is a film of immense power, and it is almost beyond criticism because of that.
