12 Strong

In the wake of Sept. 11, Capt. Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth) leads a U.S. Special Forces team into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. Once there, the soldiers develop an uneasy partnership with the Northern Alliance to take down the Taliban and its Al Qaeda allies. Outgunned and outnumbered, Nelson and his forces face overwhelming odds in a fight against a ruthless enemy that takes no prisoners.

“both an entertaining and mildly risible real-life-inspired yarn that comes off as much like a Western as a modern war film, right down to having some of the Americans ride into battle on horseback.” -The Hollywood Reporter –Todd McCarthy

“For those who enjoy war films, especially those with an “old fashioned” bent, “12 Strong” offers two solid hours.” -Reelviews –James Berardinelli
