13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (2016)
Why in the hell can Michael Bay not bring this kind of intensity and emotion to every film that he directs??? Seriously, the best work that Bay has ever done, bringing everything that nobody knew he had to the table and laying it all out there. He needs to forget about the 50 'Transformers' sequels and start focusing more on films like this.
I was riveted, spellbound by this, watching what I have read come to life on the screen. "Powerful people" tried to stop the distribution of this film and I can see why. There is even one or more bad reviews because it shows a truth that the Progressive Liberal Stalinist Democrats want to hide, that a whole bunch of Americans were in a war zone, not some peaceful place as we were told, and that they were improperly supplied, poorly secured, and there was no backup for them. Also, that there was either the biggest screwup in intelligence since Pearl Harbor, or the Secretary of State ignored it to save a couple bucks. Security should never be left to an organization like the February 17th Martyrs Brigade, who not only knew of the attack and ran away, but some were identified through surveillance photographs as part of the assault force.The film also exposes the idea that the attack on 9/11/2012 was a spontaneous event resulting from a demonstration about some anti-Islamic film. It was obviously a well planned and coordinated attack carried out in waves. That is obvious by the accuracy of mortars used and availability of heavy machine guns. In closing, never forget J. Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone S. Woods. In addition, do not forget the wounded and the rest who lived through that hell. And never forget that neither Hillary Clinton nor Barack Obama have ever publicly apologized or accepted responsibility for putting them in that situation and failing to act to defend them. And never forget that Ambassador Stevens' itinerary in a hostile area was transmitted in an email on an unsecure server by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Movie Review: "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" (2015)Director Michael Bay alongside with Acdamy-Award-winning cinematographer Dion Beebe push the envelope toward a supremely-received U.S. military stand-off scenario in black ops igniting Intel-sensitive embassy to fight to the last in highly-advanced fully-digital drone photography paired with handheld full immersive action camera motions, when the leading characters, portrayed by unit-building triangle John Krasinski, James Dadge Dale and Pablo Schreiber keep ultra-modern warfare equipment close in at times totally gripping screenplay by Chuck Hogan based on first-hand eyewitness book materials by Mitchell Zuckoff, when Michael Bay accumulates all his skill as first-class action director to bring "13 hours" to an extraordinary diverse war-movie of recent U.S. military history, which even in its daring 135-Minute-editorial executed by one too many over-looking editors, nevertheless coming out to mature audiences' satisfactions in proudly theatrical presentation by Hollywood Major studio Paramount Pictures.© 2018 Felix Alexander Dausend (Cinemajesty Entertainments LLC)
