Thought It Over

Lone Survivor is the video companion to the book.

It does not really stand alone well as a movie, the introduction to the characters and why they are so very close to each other isn't in the film at all.

I've noticed that people who've read Luttrel's book all find the movie differently than those who haven't.

The film has also sparked some debate about how SEALs go about their missions.

The playtest for GURPS: SEALs in Vietnam , which included a lot of history notes, showed an entirely different organization than what there is today.  The men and their methodology is different too.

They've lost something.
