Libya, 2012. At an unofficial CIA base in Benghazi a group of ex-military contractors are providing security. In the aftermath of Gaddafi's downfall a power vacuum exists and the climate is volatile. Military weapons are freely available. The US Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, makes a visit to the area, staying in a compound near the CIA base. On the night of 11 September, 2012, the Ambassador's compound is attacked by hordes of heavily armed locals. The only forces willing and able to defend it are six CIA contractors.Written by

When the attackers take the ambassador's house, the American crew locks themselves in the safe room. When the attackers kick the door and also try to shoot it open, the key is hanging on the lock. The bronze label is hanging there. See more »
International release and American releases have an alternate shot when the characters are boarding the plane at the end of the movie. In one version 'Bob' the CIA base commander simply says 'Sorry' to Jack, and in others he says 'I'm proud to know Americans like you'. See more »
I feel compelled to review this and say what a wonderful and truthful retelling of the Benghazi battle this movie is. BIG props to Michael Bay and his team, especially having the real men as close consultants on the film. Well done the actors for a very realistic portrayal of these heroes. This film answered all my questions about Benghazi and has HUGE integrity. Was very violent- as were the real events but very realistically done. It was so shocking watching the attack on Ambassador Stevens and hearing him radioing for help- so hard to watch, his poor family :( This film should be shown in to every politician and every school kid around the world. Great film 10/10
