The transition for actor come director from Television (Friday Night Lights) to big screen for Peter Berg hasn’t been a smooth one with his last effort Battleship still a painful reminder. But now he’s left his toys at home and is delivering a movie that’s picking up some promising reviews from U.S some critics even talking about Lone Survivor been a potential Oscar nominee (72% at Rotten Tomato).
Lone Survivor tells the story of U.S Navy Seals team 10’s (‘red Wings’) failed mission to capture or kill of senior Taliban commander Ahmad Shah (Yousef Azami) away back in 2005.

Ali Suliman, Alexander Ludwig and Eric Bana.
Based on The New York Times bestselling true story of heroism, courage and survival, Lone Survivor tells the incredible tale of four Navy SEALs on a covert mission to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda operative who are ambushed by the enemy in the mountains of Afghanistan. Faced with an impossible moral decision, the small band is isolated from help and surrounded by a much larger force of Taliban ready for war. As they confront unthinkable odds together, the four men find reserves of strength and resilience as they stay in the fight to the finish.
Mark Wahlberg stars as Marcus Luttrell, the author of the first-person memoir “Lone Survivor,” whose book has become a motivational resource for its lessons on how the power of the human spirit is tested when we are pushed beyond our mental and physical limits. Starring alongside Wahlberg as the other members of the SEAL team are Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster.
Lone Survivor is written and directed by Peter Berg, who again crafts a striking portrait of the unbreakable bonds between men that he first explored in Friday Night Lights.
