"Lone Survivor" is Making People Crazy

"If I were the surviving soldier, I'd come for you!"
-Letter to Time Out New York critic Keith Uhlich

First, the crazy people threatened critics.

Then the crazy people took to the comment threads:

"What an asshole review. The body count on the afghan side? It sounds like if you had to pick between shooting the guy that wants to harm you or hugging him, you would choose to harm him. These men choose to let the unarmed goat herders, regardless of how hostile they appeared, to go free. In return they were attacked by hostile Taliban soldiers. The movie is a based on the book, which is non-fiction. It is a re-telling of the mission. How can you view any of this as an anti-war film? You deserve a throat punch." — Commenter Richard Madrigal.

"What movie did you see….Seals are trained to be super human…did you watch the first 10 minutes moron?…I bet you voted for OBAMA too….if it were up to me there would be no rules of engagement they went through….TALIBAN should die PERIOD." — Commenter DukeF

And then they started shooting strangers for texting whilst at the film? Maybe skip Peter Berg's follow-up to Battleship and just go see Her again instead.

Of course when you're strapped with cutting-edge killing gadgets, bristling with murder-training, and backed up by a million tons of bombs one radio call away, nothing appears more hostile than an unarmed goat herder. Shame on those hostile Taliban for harassing our brave boys while they were innocently going about their business.

Since I assume that Marky Mark is the lone survivor, this thing is right at the top of my Must Not See list.
