Lone Survivor


was incredible. What a tribute to those brave men who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us on that mission.

Y'all definitely need to see this. I'm not a frequent movie goer, but I knew this one was special, and do not regret following my gut instinct.

Just thought I'd share with my patriotic brethren of the OB. Cheers n goodnight

Was a good movie, not great. Would have loved to have seen Ridley Scott direct it.

Great story though and awesome book.

Great book. If you liked it, read FEARLESS by Eric Blehm. I think it may be better.

Great men, no doubt.

re: Lone Survivor


I read the book last year. Amazing story! Lutrell and his buds are true heroes. Watched two shows on HBO last night about the story and the making of the movie. Latrell and other SEALS worked hard to make sure the movie was authentic even down to trigger finger discipline,
Going to see it tonight.

I watch these as well. He made damn sure that everything in the movie was authentic and respectful.

Adam Brown was one helluva man. Made my wife and girls read it. Don't know how it would translate to a movie, but proceeds go to his widow and children.

The book was impossible to put down. Going see the film tonight, hope it compares. Im not going to lie, I was disappointed that Walhberg was going to playing Lutrell, but after watching a few trailers and interviews, it seems like he put his heart into the role and showed true respect.

Bama, read the book first. Per interviews I heard with Mr. Lutrell the book is the actual debriefing he gave after he was recovered. I heard the movie has a few different scenes to it but overall it was awesome. Im headed to see it tonight.
