What the Critics say

Michael O'Sullivan quote iconNavy Seal's grim story captured
5
Die Burger
Paul Boekkooi quote iconNie vrede, trotse aksie
10
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconMost war films try to be epic in scope and intent. Lone Survivor opts for a smaller focus and succeeds on its own terms.
15
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconLike the best war movies, Lone Survivor laces action with moral questions that haunt and provoke.
15
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconWhen the ending finally arrived and a series of pics featuring the real life men appeared on screen, I lost it emotionally, not only due to what I had just seen portrayed as fiction, but also from being reminded of the reality and real people behind all of that.

Tomatometer quote iconWhile it may deliver its messages of patriotism, courage, and sacrifice a tad heavy-handedly, Lone Survivor finds writer/director Peter Berg wielding enough visceral power to mitigate many of his movie's jingoistic flaws.
