I never thought this book I read a few years back would ever see the silver screen thanks to the Holyweird elitist-lefty-anti-military culture. . Thanks to director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg, I'm glad to say I was wrong. It's tough to put into words though how stunning, moving, and gut-punching the movie is, keeping true to the story. One uplifting part (for me) was seeing the author himself in a bit part as another SEAL in the first 20 minutes, (With the kid in the trailers reciting the SEAL motto being told that his first mission was to clean up a mess) but only to see him later in the ill-fated Chinook loaded with the QRF sent to rescue Luttrell and his team mates. I had a feeling looking around at the type of people that filed in the theatre, that I was the only one who even knew it was him. My only knit I had to pick was how they didn't point out at the end that LT Murphy was posthumously awarded the MoH for his actions, and now has a Navy ship named after him. (DDG-112), or that all of them received the Navy Cross. They did show the Afghani who helped save Luttrel safe several years later in a pic with Marcus. 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon, and it was playing to a packed house, a month after it opened, and like Private Ryan, you could hear a pin drop during the credits as people left. This is a definite must see, and sadly will be overlooked for any awards by those in place to award them, since we've become a culture that is too busy giving handjobs to any dreck the likes of DiCaprio put out rather than honoring our warriors and their stories.
