Beliefs aside, watching what those men had to endure was brutal, yet poignant. The lone survivor of the failed mission was heavily involved with the production of the movie. He is in many of the interviews with the cast and director, and hearing him speak of the incident is extraordinary. He also wrote a book about the ordeal which I plan on buying for my dad.
After watching Lone Survivor, I had this sickening feeling, but wanted to learn more about the people who died. I'm still thinking about them and that movie now. Yes, some scenes were difficult to watch, knowing that these characters were real people with real families. But, while I was crying for these people that I never knew, I couldn't help but think about those that serve/served our country, and especially the family members they leave behind at home. If you are one of those people, you have my utmost respect, truly.
Have you watched a movie lately that stayed with you long after the credits rolled?
