13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIER OF BENGHAZI (2016)
A film by Micheal Bay
Cast: John Krasinski, Pablo Schreiber, James Badge Dale
Micheal bay’s film is always full of special effects and the loud sound of explosion that follows. Finally he decided to do something different this time, well a true story.The attack on our diplomatic outpost in Benghazi in 2012 has been a powder keg issue, there was investigation about it to find the truth to make sense of it. 13 Hours, which they say it is a true story and is obviously political film, set apart of the acts of governmental ineptitude but the film has this action flying bullets which 6 guys and others are trying to defend themselves and came out heroes to top it all off.
A buffed up, heavily-bearded John Krasinski is Jack Silva, the newest member of an elite security team assigned to the CIA outpost in Benghazi, Lybia. Basically they do not exist. They are not soldiers anymore but they are in charge with security. At first you see them getting to know each other and the time they spent with their families over Skype.The unstable region blows up, and the consulate housing Ambassador Christopher Stevens is over run by terrorists. They were a lot of confusion to who to trust on the ground and plot of paranoia to go with it. The film is beautifully choreograph by Bay the shooting scene that is. The action is intense but easy to follow with some tense at least cool music to go with it. There is enough room to breath where the soldiers start to joke around and try to make sense of it all. The thing is about the tree story is that most the time Hollywood will spike it with more action and explosion that they need, to say that Micheal Bay has followed the book that I do not know I have to read it some day. Not too bad for something different from Micheal Bay.
