Crosscutting in Lone Survivor

by Brian Davis

As is typical in the concluding sequences of war films, the ending of Lone Survivor is constructed with crosscut editing. The scene cross cuts between the base of the American forces and their traveling helicopters and the battle ensuing on the ground between the Taliban and the rebels. At the last minute, the American forces arrive via helicopter to rescue Mark Wahlberg's character from the Taliban.
