Goat herders. They’ve always been nothing but trouble, if you ask me. Wasn’t it a goat path that caused the deaths of Leonidas and his 300 at the Hot Gates? And now, goat herders are the reason Mark Wahlberg and his Navy SEALs buddies have to fight for their lives against a gazillion Taliban soldiers in the mountains of Afghanistan. I’m telling you, goat herders. Nothing but trouble throughout history.
Anyways, check out the latest trailer for Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor”. I’m not sure what they’re trying to imply here, but Mark Wahlberg’s hero character sounds a little, uh, dense?
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.
Starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster and Eric Bana.
