The latter part of the movie was a bit half baked, missing lots of details re: the village, Marcus' journey there, and other details. Time constraints I reckon. A read of the book would be a good compliment to the film if one hasn't read it.

with the movie... whats your insight about it... from gears, decision on the mission and what are the few things that you find its not accurate...

thanks guys!

How can anyone not look upon people such as Marcus Luttrel and his team mates and not see a hero?
Politics and personal beliefs play a large role. Some are just opposed to the idea of war and it's always the line level people that take the brunt of that opposition. Partisan politics influence those beliefs, see the vilification of Chris Kyle by some groups or the portrayal of Erik Prince as either a hard working entrepreneur plugging inefficiencies or a profiteering war monger depending on which side of the line your politics fall on. People's personal beliefs shape the perceptions but all too often they are more influenced by groups with self serving agendas like garnering more votes.

It's unfortunate many can't separate the people from the position they are put in. Even if you don't agree with the legitimacy of a particular armed conflict, there is room to appreciate the sacrifices people have to make during those conflicts.

Interesting discussion at Soldier Systems on the film with respect to product placement and accuracy issues. The comments in particular have some interesting comments on the realities of production.
