While I still have a hard time not seeing Jim Halpert whenever I watch John Krasinski, this movie does an excellent job of portraying the horrific real-life circumstances and timeline in which it occurred. I cannot begin to imagine what these individuals must have felt at having been abandoned at the worst possible time by their own government.

A good movie. Great visuals. Vividly captures the culture of the CIA, U.S military men, and the locals in Libya. The film subtly tells the truth about Benghazi and the failed NATO coup.

If this movie is truly accurate to the events and was not dramatized for entertainment value, then I find this movie heartbreaking. Knowing this type of thing goes on in other countries is saddening. Knowing that the government basically didn't do anything to help their own before there was a need just disgusts me. It was very clear to me that they didn't have enough security if something should happen like this. I thought that about 10 minutes into the movie. I was hoping I was just missing the other 20 guys because that were standing guard or something.

This was a gripping movie. Eyes open. I could use a single word to describe it: poignant.

We have rather unfortunately had some shortcomings recently. We didn’t help Egypt when we should have. Syria and Libya are two other places that very likely we have fallen short with. There is also Georgia and North Korea. These are all difficult places to contend with; but it is important to do so.

This movie points out one situation where we really did the wrong thing. It should likely be a must watch. And make certain you are ready to sit down and pay full attention. The cardboard sign at the end is like a picture with a million words.

True heros. I couldn't help but walk away with a true disliking for Hillary Clinton

I was completely gripped by this, it was so intense and well-done. I even had to pause it because I needed a break from all the action--and then I dove right back in. If you liked Zero Dark Thirty, you'll like this.
