    Default MOVIE: 12 STRONG

    Just watched this last night. Really enjoyed it. It's about a special forces team that is sent into Afghanistan to hook up with the Northern Alliance leader and take control of a city in Northern Afghanistan from the Taliban. They end up becoming horse soldiers, not something they anticipated at all...command and control didn't even know it would be that way.

    The movie has some issues.......which I'll leave out so as not to be spoiler material. Thing is though....the part that was hard to believe for me.....is actually how it happened. It's based on a true story. But there are a lot of battle scenes and they are enjoyable. If you watch purely for the enjoyment of a good action movie you won't be disappointed. If you are looking for deep emotional content with solid character development etc......you might be.

    What got me with this movie is that Chris Hemsworth's character always seems to be firing his M4 on Full Auto / Burst... Even after he get his "killer" eyes.

    For me it was "skop donder n skiet" to pass time.

    For me I was annoyed that attention to detail was severely lacking. ( The costumes were incorrect , the dialects were wrong , the culture of food and hospitality was fucked up)

    If one wants to dedicate a movie to real life heroes then at least show respect to them and get simple things correct.
    live out your imagination , not your history.
