    Movie ‘Lone Surviver’

    This movie is about the failed Operation ‘Red Wings’ in 2005 in which 18 members of the US Armed Forces were killed in action and delivers a heavy handed patriotic look inside what happened during those fateful hours.
    The film starts with by introducing us to Navy SEALs, Marcus, Mike, Axe, and Danny, played brilliantly by Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, and Ben Foster.
    This is all shown in the first hour but is a little slow in action and then the next forty five minute shows what a battle is really like. There is a large shootout with the team against a very large number of the Taliban force.

    Just watched this movie.
    Without spoiling it for anybody all I should say it is well worth the watch.
    A great story based on a real event.

    Nice meeting up with you again today Silky.
