Had they been launched, even if only to do a low fly-by, would have driven off the attackers; just like I used them in Iraq in Mosul, Tikrit, and Baghdad. The team from the compound also follow suit, but after Wickland goes the wrong direction, they are followed back to the Annex. It was chaotic but as long as you kept the 2 compounds separate in your mind it was okay. The 17-Feb monitors rapidly surrender their posts, permitting the aggressors simple access to the Special Mission compound. There were moments that went a bit overboard—this is a Michael Bay movie, after all—but I am thankful it was him and not some anti-American, Oliver Stone-like director who made this movie. Sorry for those who's lives were so well protected that they've never been exposed to the likes of us but, that's how we talk and act. Seriously, no one can say that Michael Bay didn't go out of his way to avoid the politics on this film.
This movie has non stop violence while these heroic soldiers attempt to rescue the ambassador as well as help the American residents escape. Such barbaric violence is completely necessary, as it's the only thing that can captivate Americans enough to distract from the usual poorly-written dialogue, bad character development, superficial plot, emotionally-flat characters, hubris-filled tone and clichés that the average twelve-year-old could put together. All the actors who play the 6 soldiers are amazing! There are just a lot of similarities as these heroes have to protect themselves in a foreign land where it honestly seems like everyone is an enemy. Wickland can escape however loses both Stevens and Smith. Was very violent- as were the real events but very realistically done. I was looking forward to watching this, but I was also a little worried at the same time. All the locals are portrayed as clownish, sinister, cowardly cartoon characters and the Americans involved above the rank of knuckle-draggers are either slaves to mindless protocol or buffoonish pie-in-the-sky Harvard or Yale dilettantes.
I have not enjoyed much of anything he has done since the office. A true movie some people in power do not want you to see, it shows how incompetent and disconnected the ruling class are at times. He did an equally great job of showing career bureaucrats at work. The story centers on the September 11, 2012 attack on the American compound at Benghazi, Libya. The film stars James Badge Dale, John Krasinski, Max Martini, Toby Stephens, Pablo Schreiber, David Denman, Dominic Fumusa, Freddie Stroma, and Alexia Barlier.

Nothing enlivens the American audience more than seeing human beings ripped apart and bludgeoned for prolonged periods of time, especially brown people. And it raises serious questions about the Benghazi attack, questions which have yet to be answered. Not able to rupture the sheltered room, the aggressors set the expanding ablaze planning to smolder the men out. Well done the actors for a very realistic portrayal of these heroes. Back at the Annex, Silva discovers that his significant other is pregnant.
Going into this movie, I expected a number of things. The firing of mortars is an art and the mortar launcher has to be anchored to the ground or every mortar will land off target. The prolonged gunfire and mortar attack on the annex was quite scary too. I am a huge fan of true stories and movies that are based off books, especially when the story is filmed true to the real. Wish they had shown a bit more of the Ambassador's death and recovery of his body but maybe it was just too disheartening for the screen.
And in the end, there's no war worship - only somber reflection on the nature of struggle, and what it does to these warriors. Some people against the movie are probably just unhappy it was made in the first place. Michael Bay clearly did the right thing by taking direction from those who where actually there. A true story of bravery and betrayal that continues in our countries politics to this very day. Arriving at the Annex, Da Silva is introduced to the rest of the team and the chief Costabile , who constantly gives the team strict reminders to never engage the citizens to avoid conflict with local militants in the area. The team retreat back to the Annex.
I'm not ashamed to admit that I was wrong. It would have been powerful to contrast what was happening in Benghazi and the presidents actions while the attack was still taking place. What could've been done differently—and why wasn't it? The story is one of the decisions the real heroes must make in the heat of battle torn between leadership and just doing the right thing. Revenant is based on a true event, but people and details have been added to enhance the drama. I'm not a fan of Michael Bay movies. But it's clear why critics are dissing it--it shows Americans as veritable superheroes in a country gone berserk. There might not be a way to make a movie about Benghazi that actually could make the haters happy.
The comedic relief soldier, Tanto, played by Pablo Schreiber was wonderful and helped break the tension in this very suspenseful and intense situation. On the morning of the eleventh commemoration of the September 11 assaults, Stevens sees suspicious men taking photos of the compound and advises his security detail. I endured about a third of this before giving up. Which makes this film the perfect vehicle for Michael Bay to direct as it focuses on the action of the incident primarily. But it is so emotionally involving I found myself with my fist in my mouth most of the time.
It was a bit confusing at times distinguishing the main characters. This is peppered with customary displays of brash jingoism, obnoxious chauvinism, and the American favorite: graphic spectacles of mutilation, dismemberment, bloodshed and gore. They are way off base. In 2012, Benghazi, Libya is named a standout amongst the most perilous places on the planet, and nations have hauled their consulates out of the nation in dread of an assault by activists. You may want to consider a frontal lobotomy.
It's too bad the film didn't include scenes showing the president being briefed on the attack and then going to bed in order to get some rest before his fund-raiser in Las Vegas. Some of the paid movie critics--particularly those from liberal publications--are attempting to diss the movie. The movie doesn't get caught up in trying to send a message or politics. Reading more online about the events, and those after, makes it look like ugly politics. It seems that this movie completely disregards this fact, that and the increasingly tiresome propagandizing of mutilation, gore, and extreme patriotism.
