Check Out 6 Images from the Navy Seals Drama, LONE SURVIVOR, Written and Directed by Peter Berg

I'm not a huge fan of war films, but LONE SURVIVOR is a drama that's getting a major marketing push for this awards season, so it's been on my radar to watch for a while. But here's the thing: Peter Berg, who I love as an actor but not so as much as a director (Battleship, The Kingdom AND Hancock), is behind the movie. So...I'm concerned about that. But the film has a pretty strong cast with the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Ben Foster and Eric Bana. Here's a little more about it in the synopsis:

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.

Mark Wahlberg stars as Marcus Luttrell, the author of the first-person memoir Lone Survivor, whose book has become a motivational resource for its lessons on how the power of the human spirit is tested when we are pushed beyond our mental and physical limits. Starring alongside Wahlberg as the other members of the SEAL team are Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster.

LONE SURVIVOR is written and directed by Peter Berg, who again crafts a striking portrait of the unbreakable bonds between men that he first explored in Friday Night Lights.

Watch the trailer:
