12 Strong

One of the first movies to come out in 2018 is “12 Strong” the story of the first group of soldiers to go to Afghanistan after 9/11. These dozen men teamed up with a warlord’s troops on horseback. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon and Michael Pena. Hemsworth proves that he can play more than Thor. This is an excellent war movie with a lot of action; planes dropping bombs and lots of gun battles. This group of a dozen soldiers, along with the Afghans, were the first to route out the Taliban and make way for other troops. The whole mission seems implausible and if I didn’t know it was true, I wouldn’t believe it. This is a good action film. Lots of blood and guts so be forewarned.
