Before filming began, the cast underwent training from real Navy SEALs. They were then brought to the set for a mock battle in full uniform and weapons (loaded with blank ammunition), in which the SEALs played the role of the Taliban. Taylor Kitsch was the best prepared of the cast, as he had previously received physical and technical training from Navy SEALs for his previous two films Battleship (2012) and Savages (2012).

Easily the best War Movie since "Saving Private Ryan" only an actual story.
If you read the book and heard the interviews with the actual "lone survivor" you know that this movie got as close to the real events as possible. The 4 actors really gave it their all. Beginning long before shooting when they started their training so they would look realistic. This movie is also the most visceral experience since "Saving Private Ryan". There were falls in this movie that actually hurt more just watching than when I broke my foot 2 years ago. And in the making of you see that crazy stunt people actually did those falls, supposedly without dying. It's of course impossible to spoil this movie given it's title but it's important to note that the guy who helped him risked his whole village for "The Americans" Safety. And he didn't think twice about it. Sometimes we forget that not all of them are Taliban. After all is said and done this is a must see if there ever was one.
