Based on a TRUE STORY! Saw this tonight. I am just going to say, when the fighting started, it did not let up. The middle third of this movie is gut wrenching and had my blood pressure soaring. LOTS of excitement and a lot of stressful gun battles going on.
Mark Wahlberg was pretty fantastic in this movie. It's amazing how he can be great in one flick and total garbage in the next.
Anyway, if you're not familiar with the story, it's about four Navy SEALS who go into the Afghanistan mountains looking for an Al Qeda leader. Things go wrong and only one person makes it out alive.
Pretty gripping account of how he was saved, and the locals who risked their lives to help him out.
Overall I liked it a lot, didn't quite love it, but it is definitely a terrific movie.
At the end, they show photos of the real people involved in the operations. This is what got me, had me a bit teary eyed.
I'd recommend it.

Sigh. I didn't realize there was a problem in the first place. I thought it was doing quite well for itself before the writers' strike. And how the heck does cartoonishness make something LESS accessible?
