Rob Riggle plays then-LTC Max Bowers, former battalion commander of the 5th Special Forces Group. Riggle, a Marine, actually served directly under the real Bowers during the same time period the movie is based on. According to Riggle, Bowers "loved" his representation in the film. See more »
When Lt. Col. Bowers, played by Rob Riggle, sips from a paper cup of coffee, you can tell that the coffee either wasn't in the cup at all or it was not at the level he pretended to sip out of. Because of the camera angle, we see that while he barely tips it to drink, below the rim the white inside of the coffee cup goes quite a ways down. See more »
Decent retelling of a true story almost too good to be true
But it is true, this really did happen. Obviously the movie makes some artistic, social and political changes but it seems like a mostly faithful retelling of the story.
Now, true story aside, the movie itself was very enjoyable, the actors made believable SF soldiers, the locations, the equipment, everything looked good.
I am so glad that they did not make a Lone Survivor clone, this is a movie that can stand up in it´s own.
Some other reviews here are saying that they are disappointed that it is predictable story. I suppose that they don´t realise that it is a true story, such is the epic and frankly absurd bravery of these men in the field, it´s almost too good to be true.
It´s a great story and it is well told in this movie.
