Navy Seals set out to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader in Lone Survivor, out now at the Showcase in Bargeddie.

Based on the true story of the failed Operation Red Wings, Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg) and his team set out on a mission to capture or kill Ahmad Shah, in late June 2005.

After running into an ambush from Shah’s men in Afghanistan, they were left with no choice but to follow their rules of engagement or be imprisoned.

Now Marcus and his team are left to fight for their lives in one of the most valiant efforts of modern warfare.

Peter Berg first became aware of Luttrell’s book in 2007 while shooting Hancock and adapted him by himself for the screen.

Joining Wahlberg on the mission are Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, Eric Bana and Alexander Ludwig.

Luttrell himself is given an uncredited cameo.

Lone Survivor is rated 15 and runs 121 minutes.
