Ratings: IMDB: 7.3/10 Rotten Tomatoes: 73% Metacritic: 48% Google Users: 93%
My Rating: 4.5 / 5 Film moved me every time I watch it. It is a Michael Bay Film though, lots of explosions.
Have I watched this before?: Yes, a number of times. Pretty crazy to see Jim and Roy working together.
Final Thoughts: Keeping this one simple because it retells a tragic event in recent history. This film was directed by Michael Bay and has his mark of heaps of pyrotechnics attached. The actors portrayed the struggle extremely well of being in a tight situation with limited outcomes that involved them staying alive. I think this film showcases the passion and skill of former American soldiers and the struggles they face after they leave their military service.
This film will pull at your heartstrings not only for the story of the Americans but also for the Libyan people who wanted better for their country as it was taken over by terrorists. This film is heavy, watch with caution, but you should watch it at least once no matter where you stand politically.
