DENVER --A true American hero grew up in Littleton, went to Heritage High School and one day, early on, decided he wanted to be a Navy Seal.

This weekend, the true story of Danny Dietz's heroic life and tragic death comes to the big screen

The movie is called "Lone Survivor" because it's based on the account of the one man who made it out of that mission, a Navy Seal named Marcus Luttrell.

The film is rated "R" because of the violent nature of that mission. It's getting rave reviews and is expected to finish first this weekend at the box office.
