13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is an action thriller based on the 2014 non-fiction book written by journalist Mitchell Zuckoff with the Annex Security Team. The film depicts the harrowing true story of the attack on a U.S. embassy outpost in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, which killed four Americans (including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens). After the assault begins, an ex-military security team are tasked with protecting a covert CIA base approximately a mile from the outpost. Directed by Michael Bay, the film stars John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, and Pablo Schreiber.~Tom Ciampoli

I know, the phrase "pulse pounding" is greatly over used these days, but believe me when I say this movie is a freakin nasty pulse pounding action machine!!!!!!!! If you are like me, and the mere idea of special forces guys running an operation makes you giddy, then this is a must see. It has legit action, nail biting suspense, and dash of feel good all rolled into one awesome movie that I would put on the same level as Black Hawk Down!!!!
I have watched this movie 5-6 times and it never gets old. Great action, acting, and realism. The movie is based on actual events. I believe that 2 or 3 of the actual 'special' operators were consultants during the making of this film. The producers and director also don't point fingers or politicize the movie which is to their credit, considering the massive scrutiny that occurred after this event. I also have great respect for the men and women who served during these attacks and everybody else that defends our nation. 4K is awesome!
We had this on DVD, but upgrading to the 4K UHD when we bought a new 4k OLED tv was a must. This already looked quite good in 2K, and 4K added a crispness and depth that's well worth the re-buy. Textures are rich, colors are saturated and contrasty, and the sound field puts you right in the fight. Just excellent all around.
This American true story is one of the most honorable movies I have ever seen. Very sad and heartwarming. It's definitely in my top two favorites. I believe it's almost as good as saving Private Ryan. I cried several times. I never knew that this event even happened I feel honored to have seen it.and I feel very sad for the people that have to live it my prayers are with all them and their families. I love America. And I'm proud to be an American. God bless America!
It was all I thought it would be on the edge of your seat action rooting for the good guys, felt like you were right there with them, knowing it was based on true events, you have history on dvd to remember, Thank You to all that fight for our freedom❤
This is my favorite movie of the year. Intense action, incredible bravery, putting their lives on the line to save 35 other lives, unselfishness, strong characters who readily sacrificed their personal safety for each other. There so much good in this movie that it's difficult to sum it up.
The most important thing to remember is that it's all true, and it doesn't lapse into a political diatribe. Just pay attention to the scenes of the drones recording all of the action overhead while defense leadership watches in Washington and does nothing to help save them and American military forces getting ready in Croatia and Sicily, but their orders to head for Bengazi never come.
In fact, this entire story was corroborated by the report of the House Select Committee. The first time I saw the movie I left the theater angry and ashamed that the most powerful military in the world never made any effort to save these people. Ever wonder how the 2012 election would have gone had all of these defenders had died along with the 35 people they were fighting to protect?
Michael Bay did the story the right way - he captured the raw power of this true story without lapsing into moralizing. It's all there, you watch it like a witness to a crime and you are allowed to come to your own conclusions. The acting was very strong and realistic. And the last few scenes really are disturbing - the Libyan force that arrives to save them came at the request, not of the American Government or because they had a contract with the CIA, but of one of the CIA operatives who happened to know the leader. And, when the rescued Americans finally make it to the Bengazi airport, no American plane comes to take them out. That is left to the Libyans. Astonishing!
