Movie review: Lone Survivor is a scorching, brutal war film
Lone Survivor is filmmaker Peter Berg's harrowing re-creation of an actual covert operation that took place in Afghanistan in 2005. The film manages to relay that sense of abject danger while staying honest to what actually transpired that day.

Four Navy Seals are in Afghanistan on a covert mission to neutralise a high-ranking Taliban operative. An act of humanity - letting go of three goatherds who have spotted them - lands them in an ambush.
Starring Mark Wahlberg, Eric Bana, Taylor Kitsch and Emile Hirsch, the film based on real-life events has been directed by Peter Berg.
War porn this is not. The film is going to scar you, make you flinch and will leave you wondering about the ethical and moral conundrum that is war.
