    Like the best war movies, Lone Survivor laces action with moral questions that haunt and provoke. show more

    Lone Survivor, from start to finish, is a tale of disaster, of bad luck and bad communication, perhaps even faulty planning, though that's hard to say. So the movie loses the common touch of average folk trying to get by, while also losing some of the pleasure of watching a crack unit at work. show more

    Survivor is a pummeling, frenzied ride, one of fall's most charged action films. The gunfights and rocket-propelled grenades are palpable, and Berg manages to make the chaos followable. show more

    Gritting, moving, powerful. You FEEL this movie while you are watching. It left me in wonder of how these men, and Marcus, have such strength and face such insurmountable odds with bravery.
