Not that Strong...
18 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban. 12 Strong was a big disappointment from me both in terms of story and characters but also as a war film in general since it takes like 51 minutes to get in the action part and when it does it's direction of the action parts was dreadful to sit threw since we're talking about a 2hr film with 25 minutes tops of action sequences. The perfomances are also bland and kinda boring to watch and Chris Hemsworth's overall character development and the rest of the men as well wasn't what i expected since i didn't found myself invested on any of them or their families and when the film goes there it does a bad job with it. Also it feels like Rambo III at times if Rambo III was a 2hr film of people talking to each other now don't get me wrong i didn't expect action all the time but i expected well written characters to care about for example watch Hacksaw Ridge or Saving Private Ryan and you'll get me. Overall this is another January film and i'm afraid the worst of 2018 (so far). [0/10]
