12 strong

Pretty good movie.
Celebrating the troops that fight for our freedom, 12 strong is about a 1st strike that happenĀ  after 9/11. In which 12 men went up against al-Qaida in the mountains of Afghanistan, riding on houses.
It was not the best movie I ever seen about the war and about the troops. It has suspenseful action sequences and a decent cast lead by Chris Hemsworth, but in the cast I did feel that they were underutilized. I see this mostly in Micheal Shannon, who I’ve seen do better with worse material but somehow nothing was fully clicking.
Everything was a little too by the numbers to get any sort of emotional connection out of what was going on.
So good action drama, but not enough heart.
