  • The film is rugged, skilled, relentless, determined, narrow-minded and focused, everything that a soldier must be when his life is on the line. show more

  • The middle 40 minutes of Lone Survivor have to be some of the toughest battle scenes in Hollywood history - an epic, close-range firefight that finds the SEALs throwing themselves down rock faces like superheroes. Only they aren't superheroes - they bleed, they break. show more

  • All four performances are first-rate, and the action is staged with shattering intensity. show more
