14. 'Lone Survivor'
Peter Berg's hit film about a SEAL team mission in Afghanistan that went catastrophically wrong isn't concerned so much with character as it is with the endurance and devastation of the human body in combat. As Marcus Luttrell, the one soldier who survived, Wahlberg is appropriately burly and chummy in early scenes. But he also maintains an edge of quiet observation. In the film's later scenes, as his wounded character gets more and more desperate, the actor brings an appropriate level of anxiety. Without his sincere, physical performance, it would never have worked.
