Excellent tribute to a true American hero
14 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Excellent tribute to a true American hero. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has or would like to see Lone Survivor. It's a great compliment to that movie and vice versa. Lt. Murphy was a true American hero and an example to what every Infantryman should be (Yes, I understand he was a SEAL but he's still an Infantryman in my book.) Truly a selfless man who cared more about his team, his Country, and his mission above himself. This movie gives you an insight to the man that Lt. Murphy really was. To all the people who are writing reviews criticizing the war, this movie is not about the war. It's about the man Lt. Murphy was. Whatever your feelings are toward the war, You should still respect the men and women who sacrifice themselves for their country.
