Some great men on a worthy mission..... looks like it might be worth a look-see . . . S.L.
Mark Wahlberg plays real-life Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell in "Lone Survivor" - based on the events that unfolded during failed mission in 2005: "Operation Red Wings."
This clip features Alexander Ludwig as Petty Officer Second Class Shane Patton, delivering a somber "Ballad of the Frogmen" over scenes of he and his fellow SEALs training for the mission to come. In short order, a four-man team heads out to hunt down infamous Taliban leader Ahmad Shah along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. Things start to go south early in the mission.
"Lone Survivor" tells the harrowing true story of the four members of SEAL Team 10 - Marcus Luttrell, Mike Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), Danny Dietz (Emile Hirsch), and Matt Axelson (Ben Foster) - who, on June 28, 2005, were assigned to carry out "Operation Red Wings." The mission was compromised, and three of the four men didn't return home.
"Lone Survivor," directed by Peter Berg, will hit theaters in New York City and Los Angeles on December 27, 2013, and the rest of the U.S. on January 10, 2014.
We must watch war movies, to honor the warriors who sacrifice on our behalf, and this is the kind of war movie that we must watch.
