She Says: This is a no for me. I watch the trailer and all I can see is propaganda. Maybe that’s not fair. Considering Michael Bay is at the helm, this will be about as accurate as Armageddon. It saddens me. This was a true tragedy. Using the terror of that night like this upsets me.
He Says: PASS! No thanks, Michael Bay. I don’t need your misplaced patriotism explained through giant American flags and explosions while using “facts” as a “backdrop”. I don’t think this country needs it, either. I have to wonder what the agenda behind making this movie even is. Now, I have no doubt that there will be all kinds of people out there who will think that any movie Michael Bay makes about Benghazi is 100% the truth. And I have to believe that there’s no way that’s going to happen. Ever. So, personally, pass. Strongly pass.
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi opens in theaters on January 15th.
