Lone Survivor: Duck and Cover

<i>Lone Survivor</i>: Duck and Cover

As penance for inflicting Battleship upon the moviegoing public -- and the brave men and women in our nation's military -- Peter Berg tries to atone for his sins by helming Lone Survivor, a based-on-a-true-story combat picture that's as spare and stripped-down as Battleship was outlandish and over-the-top. Specifically, Berg is dramatizing the 2005 SEAL-led mission Operation Red Wings, in which a four-man squad was dropped into a remote area of Afghanistan to capture and/or kill a high-ranking leader in the Taliban. Despite their superior training and weaponry, a series of unforeseen circumstances left the team outmanned and outgunned, desperately trying to stay alive in the face of a larger, well-armed army until… well, the title pretty much sums it up, doesn't it?
