"Lone Survivor" movie quotes provide the dialogue to the based on a true story of four Navy SEAL team members tasked with taking down a Taliban leader in 2005. The action film was written and directed by Peter Berg using the memoir of the same title written by survivor Marcus Luttrell, who also served as a consultant on the film. "Lone Survivor" opened in theaters on January 10, 2014.

In "Lone Survivor," four members of the US Navy SEAL Team 10, SO1 Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg), LT Michael P. Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), SO2 Danny Dietz (Emile Hirsch) and SO2 Matthew Axelson (Ben Foster) are tasked with Operation Red Wings in June 2005. As part of the War in Afghanistan, the team heads into the Kunar Province to gather intelligence to help capture or kill Ahmad Shah, a Taliban leader.

The team soon learns that the mission is going to be more difficult than expected as the 10 men in Shah's crew that they anticipated are more like a small army. Additionally, they are forced to capture a child, leading them to a life-changing decision. Killing the kid isn't the most moral option but if they let him go, he's sure to tell the rest of his Taliban men of the SEAL team's location in the trees. This leads them into an unimaginable situation where against all odds they must persevere for their own survival.

"Lone Survivor" is one of the first big movies of 2014 after a 2013 packed full of hits such as "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, "The Wolf of Wall Street, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" "Her," "American Hustle," "Saving Mr. Banks," August: Osage County, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Philomena, "Inside Llewyn Davis," "Grudge Match, "Out of the Furnace," "12 Years a Slave," "Frozen," "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Don Jon," "Rush, and "Prisoners".

Marcus Luttrell: "This op is compromised."
Matt Axelson: "This is Spartan Zero-One, radio check."
Michael Murphy: "Danny, your radio working?"
[Danny Dietz shakes his head]
Michael Murphy: "The way I see it, we've got two options. One: We let him go. Roll the dice."
Danny Dietz: "The second that they run down there we've got two hundred Taliban on our backs."
Michael Murphy: "Two: We terminate the compromise."
Marcus Luttrell: "We cannot do that."
Danny Dietz: "We do what we have to do."
Michael Murphy: "I don't care. I care about you. I care about you. I care about you."
Marcus Luttrell: "Not killing kids. Not feeling it. They are unarmed!"
Michael Murphy: "This is not a vote. We're going to cut them loose and we're going home."
Marcus Luttrell: "Roger that, sir."
Matt Axelson: "Roger"

The crew is put in a very tricky position when they take a child captive and must decide between releasing him, which means that his people will certainly know of their location and come after them, or killing him, which is morally wrong. This decision could change their lives for good.
