Trivia

The song the Special Forces soldiers sing while in the Chinook helicopter with the lyrics, "... Silver wings upon their chests..." is called 'The Ballad of the Green Beret', by Sgt Barry Sadler. It was popularized during the Vietnam War. See more »

Goofs

The opening scene has "September 11th, 2001, Fort Campbell, Kentucky, 7:45AM" when the child turns the TV to the news channel that reports "two planes hit the World Trade Center". Fort Campbell is in the Central Time Zone, which would make it 8:45AM New York time. The first plane hit the World Trade Center at 8:45AM, and the second plane hit at 9:03AM, both local time. If there was anything on the news at the time, it would have mentioned only the first plane, not both. See more »

Decent retelling of a true story almost too good to be true
4 April 2018 | by mat-fletcherSee all my reviews

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.
