I don't want to come of as naive, although I might- but I had NEVER heard anything about this incident happening. My uncle had posted something about it on FB yesterday. I was immediately curious as to what this event was about. I Googled it and read up on the basics. Without reading anything more specific or read any reviews on on it, I went into the movie pretty blindley. I did see that John Krasinski was in it and recognized him from 'The Office". I loved his character on that show, a goofy, dopey guy with a dry sense of humor and witty comebacks. I had pretty low expectations of him portraying a believable soldier. However, his performance (as well as the other key soldiers) was SOLID. I've never (as I would guess 99.9% of the population hasn't) experienced the pressure, fearlessness and confidence an elite soldier must face minute by minute. Having to be "ready to go" and put their lives at risk for our country at any second, as well as their ease in preparing to fight the enemy was beyond impressive. War like movies are not my genre. Other than American Sniper, I've never had a desire to "pick" a war movie. I'm so glad I did. The entire movie and every aspect of it blew me away! I was tense and completely enthralled the entire movie and was was not able to relax within my body until it was over. It is a RARE movie in which I feel that way. There was never a time I felt I could leave the room for any reason without pausing it, I didn't want to miss a minute. I can't BELIEVE Jack's character would CHOSE to go over there- that he had that much pride in his duty and country. This is an event/movie I will not forget and will easily be able to recommend it with confidence to someone. I now want to know more about how all of this could happen and read up on this completely preventable?, horrible and sad 13 hour catastrophe (again I'm naive as to how often these enemy clashes occur). At times it was a complete slaughter house. Ugh....As they say, no man (or woman) shall be left behind....and boy did these soldiers fight with every ounce of their being until the very end putting in a 100% of effort. The timeline and minute by hour description that would pop up on the screen that I had to read quickly read while trying to figure out what was going on where/when, was hard to follow at times.....I think I need to rewatch the movie after I gather more information. I sure as HECK hope those families of the fallen soldiers are being well taken care of for the senseless loss they had to experience. Wow is all I can end with, just wow. And that doesn't even begin to do this movie the justice it deserves.
