Lone Survivor – movie review

LoneSurvivorGrade: A

I didn’t have high expectations going into this movie, but even if I had they would have been exceeded. The entire cast was fantastic. Taylor Kitsch, who is routinely panned for his acting performances, did a fantastic job. The only criticism I could possibly offer is that he wasn’t as outstanding as Mark Wahlberg, who turned in, perhaps, the performance of his career.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t see anyone getting an Oscar nod for best actor out of this film, but for a film like this Wahlberg, Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, and Ben Foster should all feel very proud that they did such an outstanding job with such meaningful roles.

Lastly, I have to give kudos to the director, Peter Berg. I really expected this to be movie long on patriotic themes and short on production values. But no, the pacing, cinematography, everything was spot on.
As for the story, I must admit that I had to fight back tears even while doing the Peetimes. The comradery expressed in the screenplay and performed by the actors was inspiring.
