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

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi [DVD] 
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 love that this is the soldiers account of what actually happened in Benghazi. Seldom do you get the truth of an event from a Hollywood movie, but in this case I’ll take the word of these soldiers over the word of our politicians!
Great movie! Even better in 4K. Watched the movie in the theater and really enjoyed it. Bluray was cool but you’ll notice so much more detail with uhd and hdr, especially given the dark sets of the movie.
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!
can you imagine our secretary of state at the time got away with her lame job performance! She should be in jail! This movie is great, has amazing FUNNY lines, fast action, really sets a nice pace. The sound is great, can't say enough good things about the sound, it has what you expect for the money you spend on a disk of this magnitude, the money they spent was well placed. You get high quality content. The CGI is so realistic you forget its CGI and just fall into the story and lose yourself in the emotion and staging of the drama and action.
