If you fancy yourself a big swingin’ dick yank, then I’d recommend you watch _13 Hours_, but of course, you already have.
I can move past the xenophobia and jingoism pretty easily, even the typical Bay tropes don’t ruin a movie for me, but what I find difficult to abide is boredom, and with _13 Hours_, I personally found that in spades.
Though it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, though I didn’t care about any of the characters, and though I am giving this film a negative review, I can still say it’s Michael Bay’s best work in years.
_Final rating:★★ – Definitely not for me, but I sort of get the appeal._
> In an unfriendly environment they got 13 long hours to survive and resist the attack.
It is an action-thriller-war version of the ‘Argo’. Based on the true story where the most of the film was the 13 hour long armed battle event took place in Libya, 2012. I remember the middle-east’s protest over the western films, this story is set in the same time when the islamic terrorists targeted the American diplomatic compounds in Benghazi, but six brave men stood and fought against the uprising.
It is an American patriotic film, but because of the hatred over their own countrymen Michael Bay, they’re surely missing a nearly a war masterpiece. The rest of the world saw it as a fine film and appreciated that. If you haven’t seen it yet, I say just don’t ignore it. It was a well made realistic war film, the actors were amazing and the scenes were suspenseful to spectacular. Definitely one of the best in this theme.
It was simply focused on the armed conflict between the two forces, so it won’t reasons out us how and where it all began, because that might take another film to tell the tale. That’s really a very clever writing. In this 150 minute long film, the first act was full of characters and story development. Then begins the gun fight that commences from the dust hours till the dawn breaks out. With many twists in the narration during confrontation, surely not a film to be missed.
Beyond any BS – Unexpected Excellence
In this age of bitter rhetoric, the name conjures all manner of furor and blame. A small stinging wound to honor and prestige – a name to carry hate and zealotry.
Michael Bay, OF ALL PEOPLE, was able to peer into the 2012 attack on US diplomatic and intelligence resources, and capture one hell of a war story. Going into this movie, I expected a number of things. Among them were gratuitous explosions, jingoistic flag waving, and tough-guy tired clichés. I did not get what I was expecting.
Instead, Bay, his cast, and his filmmaking team have brought out a solid, technically informed, faithfully rendered account of those who were caught in the conflagration – how they found themselves there, how they fought for their lives, and how they made it out…or didn’t. There’s no political agenda here. The only agenda is to show warriors (who are also real people, with cares, and hopes and flaws) engaged in struggle, with all the courage, and luck, horror, and terrible splendor that is timeless.
And in the end, there’s no war worship – only somber reflection on the nature of struggle, and what it does to these warriors. This is a clear and worthy work for that. Bravo.
Just the typical Bay unfortunately
“13 Hours” or “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” is an American Oscar-nominated movie from 2016. The director is Michael Bay, which usually means style (especially special effects) over substance, but the fact that Chuck Hogan is the writer here and I quite enjoyed “The Town” gave me some hope. He adapted the book by Mitchell Zuckoff. But my hope was dashed relatively quickly. This is a war movie as generic as they come. I may be slightly biased as I am not only not a great Bay fan, but also military films are certainly far from my favorite genre, but as an Oscar nominee I still thought I’d give it a go, even if it is “only” in the sound category. It is set in Libya and plays pretty much in the now, not too long ago really, so an interest in current politics may help. Or it may hurt perhaps too as you will recognize the inaccuracies here. Cast includes not too many big names really, even lead actor Krasinski is not a star when it comes to the big screen.
Anyway, people who really enjoy army-based movies, even if the story is not really that good, may have an okay time with this one here. One of my main criticisms about this film, however, is that it never elaborates convincingly on the characters in a way where it would make sense to go all emotional at the very end, where we care enough about the characters and are touched by their actions and what happens to them. But this is also a criticism that is valid for several Michael Bay movies. It’s perfectly fine he tries to come up with something memorable, but the quality and talent is not there and when the film then starts taking itself so seriously, then that is a huge problem that leaves a negative impact on the entire project really. But admittedly, it is not just Bay’s fault, but you also have to blame the writers at least for the same amount. Besides, at considerably over 2 hours this movie also drags a lot. For me, it is definitely one of the weakest Oscar nominees from this year that I have seen so far. I give it a thumbs-down and only recommend it to those that I already mentioned previously.
