    Damn, that gave me the jitters. A tough, realistic film - the whole middle section is a single straight combat sequence that is insanely intense, creatively brutal, and horribly sad. It's so expertly and unflinchingly directed you accept nearly all the pathos and patriotism as an integral part of these normal, yet extraordinary human characters who have devoted themselves to an ideal to the point of absolute sacrifice. That the Afghans are also depicted as humans too comes as deeply to this films' credit, which squarely deflects political bias and asks somberly for an end to conflict in the region in its final frame. As far as true life survival stories, it just beats the pants off Captain Philips in my book (Mark Walhberg almost rivals Hanks in that), and deserves to be recognized this year in some form, even if a relatively plain narrative and comparisons to similar work means it might not get the attention it deserves. I've never winced so hard at shrapnel removal. 8 years 7 months ago
