Goofs

During the end of the movie Marcus Luttrell is in cardiac arrest and has asystole or "flat lines." The doctors shock his heart to revive him, but this is not the procedure for a flat line. Instead, the should have continued CPR and be given medications. The shock to his heart, in the case, would likely cause more harm than good. See more »

Easily the best War Movie since "Saving Private Ryan" only an actual story.
13 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

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.
