Mark Wahlberg was phenomenal and Taylor Kitsch did an amazing job. Kitsch is best known for his role on Friday Night Lights as Riggins. It's not often that a mother and daughter have a crush on the same guy, but that's what happened to my daughter and I when we watched Friday Night Lights. Yet, Kitsch proved in Lone Survivor that he was a great actor, and could do more than play a hunky football player.
The film was very inspirational, and anyone that watches it without tearing up, doesn't have a heart. It was a story of how dedicated American soldiers are to not only their country, but to each other. Seeing what all of them persevered through and kept going, was amazing. It inspired me in my own life, that when things get rough, I need to keep on going.
Mark Wahlberg played Marcus Luttrell who was the lone survivor. Luttrell wrote the book about the true story that the film was based on. I put the book on hold at the library, and can't wait to read it.
I give the movie 5 stars, I highly recommend it, and will be buying it as soon as it comes out on DVD.
