Well-meaning and overflowing with good intentions, Lone Survivor is an awkward tribute to the members of the Armed Services that’s more high quality reenactment than engaging look at soldiers in a war zone. The film is based on Operation Red Wings, the June 28, 2005 mission where four SEAL Team 10 members were sent to […]
