Based on The New York Times bestselling true story of heroism, courage and survival, Lone Survivor tells the incredible tale of four Navy SEALs on a covert mission to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda operative who are ambushed by the enemy in the mountains of Afghanistan. Faced with an impossible moral decision, the small band is isolated from help and surrounded by a much larger force of Taliban ready for war. As they confront unthinkable odds together, the four men find reserves of strength and resilience as they stay in the fight to the finish.
'This is feeling like a doomed op," Navy SEAL Matthew "Axe" Axelson (Ben Foster) mutters as he and his three brethren stand in a mountain clearing, ringed by rocks and trees, the radio not working, before things really start feeling doomed in Peter Berg's full-force combat movie Lone Survivor. » Read more
