Wahlberg was in full treasure hunting and soldiering mode for Three Kings, his first collaboration with director David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, The Fighter). We couldn’t help but feel uncomfortable watching Wahlberg’s struggle for gold in a post-Persian Gulf War Iraq as he was thousands of miles from home or comfort.  His performance echoed not only that of a soldier’s, but any man’s as well.
