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.

    This movie follows the barest hint of what actually happened during the invasion of Afghanistan. About the fifth time a Special Forces soldier fired his weapon without looking through the ACOG I started to get annoyed. This movie is ridiculously unrealistic in more ways than I care to recount, from the interactions between the ODA and the indig to the horrible military consultation. The director must have hired a National Guard cook to tell him how Soldiers look, move, act, and speak.
  • Great cast, horrible movie

    I wanted to like this so much. I really liked the cast.....but the movie fell short on writing, effects, props, plot, directing, location, story line....I could go on. I paid for it, so I’m going to watch it to the end, but I couldn’t wait for it to be over. Whomever put this movie together did a huge disservice to sacrifice and actions of the real boots on the ground. Very disappointed.

    Up there with the worst of them...sad. I’ve never left a review before, but felt obligated. Save your time and money. Do laundry or something instead.

    This was one of the best movies. It had great dialogue, respectfully showed what are men are up against, had no political slant. It was a very enjoyable watch, especially knowing it was based on a true story/event.
