Description

“12 Strong” is set in the harrowing days following 9/11 when a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Hemsworth), are chosen to be the first U.S. troops sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. There, in the rugged mountains, they must convince Northern Alliance General Dostum (Navid Negahban) to join forces with them to fight their common adversary: the Taliban and their Al Qaeda allies. In addition to overcoming mutual distrust and a vast cultural divide, the Americans——accustomed to state-of-the-art warfare——must adopt the rudimentary tactics of the Afghan horse soldiers. But despite their uneasy bond, the new allies face overwhelming odds: outnumbered and outgunned by a ruthless enemy that does not take prisoners.

    A great movie. Another example of why you should never pay attention to the so called "professional" critics who are negative all the time. Well worth the rental fee, or buy it if you want.
  • No depth

    I’ve always had a soft spot for war movies. But this one falls short. No depth whatsoever. No character development, no background about the training that makes the Green Berets an elite force, hardly any explanation of their mission. All in all, this is just over two hours of people shooting guns and VERY little substance. I don’t mind the overly patriotic underpinnings of this type of movie. But it lacks the flair of a “Lone Survivor”, or even “American Sniper”, much less a “Zero Dark Thirty”. This reminded me more of “13 Hours”...just another juvenile style propaganda piece. A big disappointment.

    If youre gonna portay highly trained soldiers in combat, do it right. These guys look and sound unintelligent and the overly eager heroics dont smell right. Its entertaining but it just doesnt feel real

    I thought this would be a good or better watch; but this is a ridiculous and forced film with some good actors in roles that are not the reason for their success. This terrible event is important to remember. Maybe this is meant for the younger people who should not be exposed to the real horror of the filmed unforgettable history of this Evil day and action. But even the older movie with N. Cage was more watchable for me. So I am rating low due to my expectations and the staged part of this movie I made it through. Maybe it gets some great effects later. But this is just a tough event to make into anything other than something deeper than this effort.
