Page 2 - Was This Mark Wahlberg's Response To Tom Cruise For Comparing Acting To Tour Of Duty?
The '2 Guns' actor added, "I've done other movies where I trained for four-and-a-half years, I did The Fighter -- f--- all that," he added. "I'm a very lucky guy to do what I do, and I'm proud to be a part of this, but it's just so much bigger than what I do."
Wahlberg's emotional speech got the better of him as he finished by simply saying, "I'm sorry for losing my sh-t. Don't ask any more questions tonight."
The film is based on the failed SEAL Tea 10 mission "Operation Red Wings" and Wahlberg plays navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell.

Following its premiere in Los Angeles, Lone Survivor scored stunning reviews from critics.
Berg's work here is at the top of his range.The film is rugged, skilled, relentless, determined, narrow-minded and focused, everything that a soldier must be when his life is on the line," said Todd McCarthy of the Hollywood Reporter.
"Peter Berg's scorching, often unbearably brutal account of a doomed 2005 military mission in Afghanistan is perhaps the most grueling and sustained American combat picture since 'Black Hawk Down.'" said Justin Chang, Variety's chief film critic.
Charlie Schmidlin of Indie Wire focused his review on the intense horror of Lone Survivor, writing, "A succinct death for any of our main characters would be a godsend; rather, they are ripped to shreds by bullets, impaled on tree branches, and bludgeoned on rocks repeatedly over 45 minutes before a bloody end finally comes."
