I sure hope Hollywood doesn’t mess this one up. The book is outstanding.

I read it too, then followed up with reviews & critiques of it.
Not sure of just how much was fact, and how much was 'dramatized'...just saying.

I believe his brother portrayed a CIA op in Path to 9-11 (censored).

Fantastic book. Hope the movie does good by it.

I hope Hollywood did this one justice. Marcus deserves nothing but the best.

I believe there's cause for hope. From the link:
In June Luttrell is quoted as saying, I want to make sure that the movie is true to the book. Most people get their information from movies and TV and dont read so I want to make sure this movie is as realistic as possible. Luttrell to Blackfive.net
