Lone Survivor (2013)
Picking up the visceral intensity where Black Hawk Down left off, Peter Berg’s Lone Survivor tells the true tale of Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg) and his team that was tasked to track Taliban leader Ahmad Shah’s whereabouts and the failure of the mission that followed. Lone Survivor is a full-throttle ride without losing any emotional intensity.
It also benefits from being able to depict the brutal ugliness of war from all angles without feeling the need to comment on it. So often movies like Lone Survivor can get caught up in political message and lose sight of the people – the soldiers giving their lives – but thankfully Berg manages to avoid that completely.
