If you fancy yourself a big swingin’ dick yank, then I’d recommend you watch _13 Hours_, but of course, you already have.
I can move past the xenophobia and jingoism pretty easily, even the typical Bay tropes don’t ruin a movie for me, but what I find difficult to abide is boredom, and with _13 Hours_, I personally found that in spades.
Though it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, though I didn’t care about any of the characters, and though I am giving this film a negative review, I can still say it’s Michael Bay’s best work in years.
_Final rating:★★ – Definitely not for me, but I sort of get the appeal._
> In an unfriendly environment they got 13 long hours to survive and resist the attack.
It is an action-thriller-war version of the ‘Argo’. Based on the true story where the most of the film was the 13 hour long armed battle event took place in Libya, 2012. I remember the middle-east’s protest over the western films, this story is set in the same time when the islamic terrorists targeted the American diplomatic compounds in Benghazi, but six brave men stood and fought against the uprising.
It is an American patriotic film, but because of the hatred over their own countrymen Michael Bay, they’re surely missing a nearly a war masterpiece. The rest of the world saw it as a fine film and appreciated that. If you haven’t seen it yet, I say just don’t ignore it. It was a well made realistic war film, the actors were amazing and the scenes were suspenseful to spectacular. Definitely one of the best in this theme.
It was simply focused on the armed conflict between the two forces, so it won’t reasons out us how and where it all began, because that might take another film to tell the tale. That’s really a very clever writing. In this 150 minute long film, the first act was full of characters and story development. Then begins the gun fight that commences from the dust hours till the dawn breaks out. With many twists in the narration during confrontation, surely not a film to be missed.
Just put politics aside and watch it
As polarizing as this movie is just put your politics aside and watch it. The attack is a part of history that deserves to be put on screen in as grand and well produced manner as can be. And in that sense it succeeds. The filming in Morocco and Malta captures a really on location feel.
The battles are well done and engaging, not over the top. It was a bit confusing at times distinguishing the main characters. Maybe they shouldn’t have had beards for the movie because it made them look alike. Jon Krasinski and James Badge Dale, Max Martini and Dominic Fumusa are all good as the heroes. There is just enough background with kids and wives shown to put a human element to the people. Whatever your politics is, they were brave. Liked Jon Krasinki’s characters statement about dying over there at the end.
The journey under fire from the embassy to the annex was gripping. The prolonged gunfire and mortar attack on the annex was quite scary too. It was chaotic but as long as you kept the 2 compounds separate in your mind it was okay. Initially, a little bit less back and forth between scenarios would have been better.
There are the “bad” good guys – the incompetent CIA people especially the chief who gives the infamous and disputed “Stand down” order. Wish they had shown a bit more of the Ambassador’s death and recovery of his body but maybe it was just too disheartening for the screen.
Some people against the movie are probably just unhappy it was made in the first place. Apart from the stand down and request for air support it isn’t too directly critical of the administration. There might not be a way to make a movie about Benghazi that actually could make the haters happy.
Watch this movie.
As a former PMC
This movie hit home. Every PMC who signs every contract knows they have no US military support. A PMC or grouping of PMC’s is on their own. Only a President can order US military action on a foreign nation without the Senate and House Approval. Had President Obama sent in a military for for support or even ordered air support for those PMC’s would have made a single handed de-facto declaration of war against Libya, which at the time out armed forces were engaged in military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Adding a third conflict with another Arab state would have over extended US armed forces resources to one region, complicating a difficult situation already happening. I am glad most of those PMC’s made it home alive to their families and did exactly what their contract states, solved the situation by themselves. Great movie ,but brought up horrible memories for me. With the facts I presented keep those facts in mind when sitting down to watch this movie or watch it again. ( Once was enough for me. ) Great directing and acting, pretty close to factual. Watch it or rewatch it with the facts I presented in mind and the movie will make a whole lot more sense to the viewer.
