Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor (2013)

Continuity mistake: 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.

Continuity mistake: At the airbase when Mike is walking from his room into Marcus' to show him the horses on his laptop he's carrying a banana, however in the room he has an apple in his hand.

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.

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).

Trivia: Marcus Luttrell named his dog DASY in memory of his team that was killed (Dietz, Axe, Southern Boy [Luttrell], and Yankee [Murphy]). DASY was shot and killed on April 1, 2009 by four men who approached Luttrell's yard. As the four men fled in their vehicle, Luttrell gave chase in his car until police intervened. Luttrell refused the 911 dispatcher's instruction to stop chasing the men.

Trivia: The real Marcus Luttrell appears several times throughout the movie: he spills the coffee and tells the new guy to clean it up; he's in the operation briefing and shakes his head at the rules of engagement being read; and he's on board the Chinook helicopter when it is shot down.

More quotes from Lone Survivor


Question: What did they mean in their meeting about no medicine on the mission?

Chosen answer: The exact quote was "there's no medicine in a gunfight," meaning the SEALs couldn't just stop shooting at the enemy to help another SEAL who was injured. They're speaking more broadly of the "Self-aid" concept, where each person needs to look out for himself until someone else can come provide medical assistance.

Question: Why do all the SEALS have scruffy beards? Usually they are clean shaved, right? I was just wondering if it's maybe for the mission that they are on, but I see all the SEALS there have a bunch of facial hair. Can someone confirm this?

Chosen answer: SEALs are allowed to have 'modified grooming standards'. They are often undercover in other countries and it helps them to blend in, as beards are far more common in the Middle East.

Question: What happens to the soldier that kills the Lone Survivor?

Chosen answer: This question makes no sense. The Lone Survivor doesn't get killed. That's why he's the Lone "Survivor".
