Lone Survivor

Factual error: In the scene at the evacuation hospital doctors are seen administering shocks to Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg) with paddles. The EKG shows a flatline. In reality, medical personnel do not give shocks for a flatline because it has no effect.

Mark J. Boucher

Factual error: In many shots we see a Marc Lee memorial patch. Marc Lee was killed August 2, 2006. Operation Redwing was June 28, 2005, more than a year earlier.

Factual error: During the final attack on the village by Apache helicopters, they are shown with front-mounted machine guns instead of the 30mm cannon. Apaches are not armed with a front machine gun.

Factual error: Throughout the film, the SEALs are seen wearing Mechanix gloves, but the type seen are the current type. What distinguishes them from older models is the velcro wrist strap. The older models had an elastic, velcro strap, while the newer ones have a reinforced, rubberized velcro strap. The newer type as seen in the film is inaccurate for the time period.

Factual error: When the seals are tumbling down the mountain one of them almost lands on a rattlesnake. There are no rattlesnakes native to Afghanistan or any other part of Asia. They occur only in the western hemisphere.

Mistakes

In the scene where Marcus is removing the shrapnel from his leg, when he gets to the last and largest piece, he places the medallion from his necklace in his mouth to bite down on. As the scene transitions from the leg to his face as it is removed, he appears to no longer have the medallion in his mouth. Then once the shrapnel is removed, he collapses and still has the medallion in his mouth.

Trivia

In the opening scenes showing the SEALS waking up, many photos stuck on walls of the SEAL's living quarters are shown. These photos contain some, if not all, real photos of the men killed on the mission. When the montage of the real-life men appears at the end of the film, you will recognise some familiar faces from the beginning of the film. Also, when Axelson is chatting with his wife Cindy (in the same 'waking up' sequence) on his laptop, the photo of Cindy on the right-hand-side of his laptop seems to be the real-life Cindy Axelson (if it isn't, then it's an actress who bears a very striking resemblance to her).
