13 HOURS (2016 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

13 Hours tries so hard to be a box office hit, but the hard-to-follow storyline loaded with multitudinous characters make it a confusing watch. The action flows unsteadily with no real climax. The necessary story support found in the foundation and back story are lacking. John Krasinski (The Office) has been in the business for a long time now but needs more realism in scenes such as when he screams at one of the officers for dropping a dead body over the roof of a building.

Storyline

United States Ambassador Chris Stevens (Matt Letscher) makes a poor decision for living quarters in the dangerous country of Benghazi.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. Read a plotline, do some research on Bengazi, and CIA Military Contractors before going to gain a greater appreciation of the story.
