12 Strong is based on the true story of the first American soldiers deployed overseas to counterattack the 9/11 event. It's full of bombastic action, scenery shots that would make Peter Jackson happy, and Chris Hemsworth playing a muscular tough guy with a beard...without a hammer. It's not the most emotional war movie (I still give that to Saving Private Ryan.), but it does offer a nice perspective on the travesty and suffering of those in the Middle East that opposed the Taliban. It shows that there are good people in the Middle East that fight for freedom and peace rather than terrorism. Overall, it's an enjoyable war film, but it doesn't really make you feel connected to the guys that performed one of the greatest military feats in history.
