"LONE SURVIVOR" is explosively showing the upcoming year!
LONE SURVIVOR ...
The upcoming war film from writer and director Peter BY Marcus Luttrell nonfiction books on developments in Afghanistan in June 2005 ...
" Wow " is the only thing that was in my head after I read the script .
" My God ! wow! " - I thought maybe 20-30 minutes . I took it a rule - if a forthcoming film based on real events , I do not watch trailers , do not watch commercials or read the media , I read the text - whether it's a book or script. Few looks like the script is - it's something like a brief description of concise, clear sentences situation , action, as well as dialogues . ALL !
Reading the book I myself director and writer - in my mind your movie , what I want! With the scenario is different. There's all short, no description of colorful species or human nature , but here , I was shocked , I have read and seen so clearly what is happening , I saw the face , felt the horror and pain of the four sea lions , which are referred to in this film . So realistic it looked in my head, so much touched me the plot of this film only after reading the script ...
The story takes place in Afghanistan in the Hindu Kush mountains . Starring Mark Wahlberg in the role of Marcus Luttrell , Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Michael P. Murphy, Emile Hirsch in the role of Danny Dietz and Ben Foster in the role of Matthew Axelson . Perish all but Luttrell Marcus ( Mark Wahlberg ) , caught in the crossfire of the Taliban. Their task was to capture or kill a known Taliban leader Ahmad Shah , but the human factor played a cruel joke. The heroes suddenly question and the answer depends on - will they live or are attacked Taliban. They meet on the way shepherds old man and two teenagers . Kill unarmed people - means to denigrate themselves to the end of life, to let go , so highly dangerous and practically starve yourself to death , because shepherds certainly informed that the forest is a group of American soldiers. They are released . Death does not wait long .
Author - genius! While reading the text , could not stop thinking , "God, how do you properly used obscene language ! Curses are exactly where and should! I'm probably cursing too! No way ! " . And the scene with the flies ! ? This scene with the flies just struck me ! It is not likely , as it is possible in just a few short phrases to describe this scene , I was ecstatic! I think many will agree with me , no one, even the most realistic and dramatic film can not do without ironic scenes , so that's - that 's what I say! Too early to judge , the movie I have not seen , but hope to see exactly what I imagined , I think filmmakers and cast will not fail , the team selected a great all - aces in their field, they have proved this to us more than once.
Also remained under the deepest impression of the final part of the script so much, so touching , so deeply conveys the essence of war and those feelings that are the same , the lone survivor !
The final phrase of LUTTRELL MARCUS
" I DIED UP ON THAT MOUNTAIN. THERE IS
NO QUESTION A PART OF ME WILL
FOREVER BE UP ON THAT MOUNTAIN DEAD
AS MY BROTHERS DIED.
BUT THERE IS A PART OF ME THAT
LIVED. BECAUSE OF MY BROTHERS,
BECAUSE OF THEM, I AM STILL ALIVE,
AND I CAN NEVER FORGET THAT NO
MATTER HOW MUCH IT HURTS, HOW DARK
IT GETS, HOW FAR YOU FALL...
YOU ARE NEVER OUT OF THE FIGHT."
God forbid that these words remained unchanged in the final scene !
Perfect in my opinion is that the film uses real names of the participants of that terrible operation.
