The movie, (LONE SURVIVOR).

If you haven't seen this movie yet, believe me when I say, that it is worth seeing!!!!!

It's a true story about our Navy Seals.
One of my best friends is a retired Navy Seal Team Leader!
These guy are really special.

I was a Marine DI (Drill Instructor). And thought that I was a real Bad ASS!
But I couldn't hold a candle next to these Seals. They are the (ELITE), the Best of the Best, and devoted to only one goal, and that is to complete their mission!

They have been taught to ignore pain and keep fighting until the end.

Just keep in mind, that this movie is based on a true story, and it's contents have been confirmed, by the actual real LONE SURVIVOR!!!!!!!

I saw it a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was pretty good, although not something I'd want to see again. It scored 74% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer. The higher the score supposedly the better the movie.

Since one of my Grand-sons is a Seal. In fact just completed his basic training. He said that only 9% made it through the training course, and all of the others rang the bell. The ones that made it were told at their graduation, be prepared, because 25% of you, won't live to see 30 years of age.
So needless to say, we are worried, but also very proud of him.
We plan on seeing this movie next week!

Phenomenal movie. The guts and fortitude of theses guys is mind boggling. It's truly a some type of super genetic rarity that sets the guys like these apart from normal people.
Old Dogger, may the good Lord watch over your son. We all appreciate his service and dedication to this country.

It is an outstanding movie. It's a little Hollywood in a couple of scenes but the message and valor come across loud and clear. I really liked Act of Valor because of the documentary style and the action scenes but this movie portrays the leadership and brotherhood aspects in more detail. I also though it was a great tribute to have lone surviving SEAL in the movie.

If you liked the movie, read the book! It's even more moving, shows what those guys go through to become the elite fighters that they are, and also the movie does not give a good picture of what Luttrel went through in the Pashtun village before he was rescued. Even several guys I know who aren't normally readers have read this book and loved it. I can't recommend it enough.

He also just did more for his family name than having 2 people graduate from Harvard.

Saw it a few weeks ago with my wife, who's sister was just deployed to Korea. Gave us a new respect for our Armed Forces. Honestly, one of the most powerful films I've ever seen
