Lone Survivor

Revealing mistake: When Mark Wahlberg removes the shrapnel from his leg, it is pretty obvious that it is a fake leg. If you look at and compare its dimensions to the rest of his body, you can see that that would be the leg of a giant man. The thigh is way too long, and the whole leg is way too big for his body. You can also tell by his body posture that his real leg goes into the couch he is sitting on.

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. (00:09:00 - 00:10:00)

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).

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?

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.
