Over the several times the CIA Annex is attacked, despite the grievous casualties inflicted on them, there are few bodies of the attackers seen on the ground during the subsequent attacks. Granted, many of them fell in areas with long grass that would obscure the bodies, and bodies are seen definitively after the attack when the attackers' families recover them. However, there still should have been more bodies visible during the attack scenes. 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 »
Riveting Authenticity is the first feeling I had when the movie ended. After watching these events unfold. If you don't feel for these real life men, soldiers, heroes, Americans.... You may want to consider a frontal lobotomy. Or just stop reading and/or watching anything political. This work is best viewed after removing the talking points/ talking heads. Only recount the actual time line of events from the Bengasi hearings on c-span. This work gives a mega phone to those who's voices where dismissed and a heart to those who can never speak again. Michael Bay clearly did the right thing by taking direction from those who where actually there. That is evident throughout the movie and really gives a heightened authenticity. One of the best historical war movies ever. Several emotions smack you hard throughout this movie. The acting was very well done by pretty much everyone. John Krasinski probably impressed me the most. I have not enjoyed much of anything he has done since the office. This is a rare film in that I will want to see again. I hope this work can help heal a country that was stabbed in the gut by the attempt to muddle the facts from that day.
