Anyone else see this? What were your thoughts on it, without being too political please.? I personally loved it, and have watched it once in the theatre and 3 times online already. I just can't get it out of my head, what a brutal but touching story. Found Marcus Lattrel's book Lone Survivor ( of which the movie is based off of, sort of ) on HPB so I look forward to reading it soon. The film took a Hollywood turn but most of it is true, and really captures the intensity of the battle, will and courage from that day in June 2005. I was kind of stunned to figure out it happened on June 28th, since that's my birthday. I don't want to go into the synopsis just yet for spoiler reasons, but I look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts. One thing I don't think I can handle listening to though is folks thinking the movie was political propaganda. That just hits a nerve. It does not matter whether or not they should have ever been put in that situation, whether the mission or the war itself is " wrong " or " senseless ". The movie isn't about that, it's about a group of trained warriors who found themselves in a badly outnumbered, compromised situation, but they banded together as brothers and showed more courage and will then most of us ever probably thought possible. I can't even imagine pushing myself to that limit. So many people cannot see the movie for what it truly was, but have to look at it through the " they shouldn't have been in that situation in the first place " theory. Can someone explain to me how to do spoiler tags? Thanks!
