I'm sure that's just how the review wrote up the synopsis. I'm not worried...yet.
If you ever get the chance to meet Luttrell, ask him about the shenanigans he and his brother pulled together in BUDS....before his brother was in.
I read somewhere else that they have it as that they all voted.1. Marcus Luttrell didnt make the decision for the team. They all made a decision. From what I remember Lt. Mike Murphey finalizing it.
2. Marcus Luttrell wasn't in charge of the team.
Hollywood is gonna mess this up.

We'll see. Even if they try 100% for accuracy they will never get it completely right.
I think you might be getting carried away with your assumption that hollywood will ruin this. Peter Berg is not the kind of fuck tard who will mess this up.
Also.. last I checked, MSN Movies does not have the final say on what a movie will be about. There is no official synopsis released.. I don't even think there is even a cast listing.
By the way, from what I remember reading in the book; Marcus was the senior enlisted on the ground and the final decision on letting the shepherds go was when Lt. Murphy asked Marcus what he thought. Marcus said to let them go and Lt. Murphy based his final decision on what he said.
Have some faith brother. I firmly believe this movie will be a strong memorial for the fallen. Just have some faith...
Ok, fine- in Berg I trust. But I still think this is one of those things that can't be turned into a movie. Berg has done good movies, but not every book transitions well into a movie.
I agree. I can't speak for the depiction of the firefight, but I can speak about the mannerisms and the commradery that was depicted in the movie for the time frame. It is still the most accurate war movie ever IMO.Before BHD some would have said that it would be too complex to put into a movie. I think BHD was a great movie and served to be a good memorial/dedicatin to the fallen. A complicated story of an 18-hour battle put into a 2.45 hour movie.
If the MSN write up turns out to be correct and ML is portrayed as the team leaders but people leave the theatre thinking, "Wow, those SEALs are amazing. Those Night Stalkers are so brave." that's a fucking WIN.
There was some rather big factual mistakes in BHD and there will certainly be factual mistakes with this movie I'm sure. The important thing is to tell the story about the men and there sacrifice. I think even with the factual mistakes in BHD they told the story well and I think they can do the same for this movie.
