I believe that if you want to make a military movie you have to go full-blown, Marine-style, ‘ooh-rah’ or the movie won’t cut it. I just can’t take the movie serious unless it’s legit. I’m talking Saving Private Ryan, Platoon and Apocalypse Now legit. It is because of this belief that I find myself awash with conflicting feelings towards Lone Survivor. In terms of cast it has the potential to be a real knock out with the likes of Markie-Mark, Emile Hirsch, Eric Bana, Taylor Kirsch and Ben Foster, however my scepticism lies in the fact that in recent times Hollywood have been found guilty of being preoccupied with making a profit rather than a good movie. With Pete Berg at the helm, this could either be of The Kingdom calibre or at a Battleship low. So let’s wait and see. At least everyone is sporting a gnarly beard.
