The True Story of the Army's Special Forces "Green Berets", who within weeks responded to the 9-11 attack. Green Berets, with the help of the 160th SOAR(A), took over the country and allowed other Special Forces and the rest of the conventional military to begin the more publicly visible war.Written by
The film is based on Doug Stanton's non-fiction book "Horse Soldiers", which tells the story of CIA paramilitary officers and U.S. Special Forces personnel in addition to USAF Combat Controllers, sent to Afghanistan immediately after the 9/11 attacks. Among the events covered in the book but not in the film is the Qala-i-Jangi prison uprising, one of the bloodiest battles in the early period of the War in Afghanistan. See more »
When Capt. Nelson is spotting for Air Support by heavy bombers, he states he needs to get closer to get the actual coordinates. In fact, if you can see the target and you have a map--which Nelson did--you can plot the coordinates easily on the map and give them to the aircraft or the Joint Air Controller. There is no need to 'get closer'. See more »
Decent retelling of a true story almost too good to be true
But it is true, this really did happen. Obviously the movie makes some artistic, social and political changes but it seems like a mostly faithful retelling of the story.
Now, true story aside, the movie itself was very enjoyable, the actors made believable SF soldiers, the locations, the equipment, everything looked good.
I am so glad that they did not make a Lone Survivor clone, this is a movie that can stand up in it´s own.
Some other reviews here are saying that they are disappointed that it is predictable story. I suppose that they don´t realise that it is a true story, such is the epic and frankly absurd bravery of these men in the field, it´s almost too good to be true.
It´s a great story and it is well told in this movie.
