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

Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
everything you wanted to know about bengahzi but were afraid to ask. Behind the scenes account of when Hillary let the world down. Lots of action, one liners, and true guts.
Excellent movie and story told boldly.Everyone should watch this film as a history lesson.I will not go into the politics involved in why this scenario happened to these people.But it should serve as a cautionary history lesson.Where to go, what to do and when to act.These soldiers and civilians acted and responded heroically as the political machine hung them out to dry.This should have never happened.If our government had any good sense of morales and cared about human beings in general, this would never of happened.Or would ever happen again.The actors are stellar in their portrayals and performances.The fight sciences and buildup throughout the film is gripping and heartbreaking.Camera work is excellent.The night time shots are incredible!Hats off to everyone involved in producing a film that holds up after multiple views throughout the years.I still feel like I am watching this story for the first time each and every time I view it.I highly recommend you purchase a copy of this movie and let friend and family view it.Everyone should know what took place in Benghazi.Incredible and sad all at once.
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!!!!
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!

Excellent action and a great true story that most people have forgotten about. One of the few films to come out of liberal Hollywood that throws shade on the Obama era administration that allowed this to happen. Both Hillary and Obama did nothing to prevent it and nothing to help while it happened and provided lame excuses about what sparked it. Highly recommended!!
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!
Decent movie with incredible sound and visuals, particularly if you are watching it on a nice 4K TV (I watched it on my LG OLED) with a sound bar, sound system or good headset. They stayed away from the political side of this, which is good because politics had nothing to do with why that outpost was so sparsely guarded but millions of Americans believe otherwise solely because they don't like Hillary Clinton.
