Based on former SEAL Marcus Luttrell's memoirs, this is the story of four US Navy SEALs who are left stranded in the Hindu Kush mountains when their communications are cut off. When surrounded by the Taliban, they face a fight for survival.
As the show begins, we are given a glimpse of the brutal training that US Navy SEALs go through before they become trained killing machines. It is fittingly portentous because of what this particular team of soldiers will go through during the course of their battle.
As part of Operation Red Wings, Marcus Luttrell (Wahlberg), Michael Murphy (Kitsch), Matthew 'Axe' Axelson (Foster) and Danny Dietz (Hirsch) set out on a mission in a remote part of Afghanistan to eliminate Taliban leader Ahmad Shah. After reaching the rendezvous point atop a hill overlooking their target village, a group of local goat herders stumble - quite literally - upon them. The decision the SEALS take, of whether to kill or release the locals, is a fateful one. But they decide to uphold a code of honour about not killing unarmed civilians and they let them go. They know that in doing so, they are clearly alerting the nearby Taliban about their presence. Soon enough, as they expected, the Taliban have the four surrounded and the firefight begins.
The film's action is brutal and relentless, leaving the embattled men no time to even finish a sentence before an RPG goes off or a machine gun stitches the ground in front of them. They are shot, sustain gory wounds in almost forensic detail and are relentlessly riddled by shrapnel. Lesser men would break under this but not once do these soldiers falter. True to their training, they fight the Taliban with far greater ferocity and anger. That aside, the film never once ventures into partisanship or jingoism. The fact that war really is hell is always kept front and centre throughout. Tobia Schliesser's cinematography is brilliant. This one's an adrenaline- packed ride all the way.
Mark Wahlberg's character of Marcus Luttrell in the film, while defending himself, ends up killing with his knife but in an interview, the real Marcus Luttrell said he never killed anybody.
In the film, when Marcus Luttrell and his men are fighting the Taliban, the ordeal lasts only three days when in reality, the battle went on for five days.
Many of the SEALs and other operators in the movie use helmets and night vision mounts made by Ops-Core which did not exist at the time depicted in the film, which is the year 2005.
