Chris Hemsworth ("Thor", "The Avengers" films) and Oscar nominee Michael Shannon ("Revolutionary Road", "Nocturnal Animals") star in 12 STRONG, a powerful new war drama from Alcon Entertainment, Black Label Media and Jerry Bruckheimer Films that tells the declassified true story of the Horse Soldiers. In addition to overcoming mutual distrust and a vast cultural divide, the Americans-accustomed to state-of-the-art warfare-must adopt the rudimentary tactics of the Afghan horse soldiers. Getting rid of the enemy is paramount, but so is understanding the difference between allies and enemies, alongside the thoughts, beliefs, and culture of our allies.
Based on Doug Stanton'sHorse Soldiers, the war movie is directed by former photojournalist Nicolai Fuglsig, a filmmaker whose career also includes covering the Kosovo War. At first, there's even room for humor (the dialogue is sometimes surprisingly amusing with great banter between Dostum and Mitch), but as the mission comes closer to success so does the fear that someone may die against Mitch's bold promise that no one will perish.
Much of the film sees Hemsworth trying to balance the uneasy partnership the U.S. has with the Northern Alliance's General Dostum (Navid Negahban). Besides that, it's all solidly crafted. What 12 Strong does deliver, however, is a rousing tribute to the bravery of soldiers whose contributions went unheralded for years.
The only moments where 12 Strong becomes remotely interesting is when we get a glimpse of Dostum. Hemsworth also said the films were very "inspirational" for him. There must be new text to read on-screen every five minutes. Along the way, there are brief acknowledgements that Afghanistan is the "graveyard of empires" and that the war is far from over, but rather than consider the long-term ramifications, 12 Strong just wants the comfort of good guys versus bad guys on a battlefield. It has something to say about appreciating different cultures and the true definition of a warrior.
