One of my favorite things to do on a date or with friends or family is go to the movies. I love just about any genre (save most horror films…I just can’t with those), but I’ve especially grown fond of stories about real people. I’m fascinated by the Netflix series “The Crown,” and films like “Zero Dark Thirty” grabbed me from the beginning and never let me go. As many films as we’ve seen over the last few years about 9/11 and the events surrounding that terrible day, I had never heard of the “Horse Soldiers.” Keep reading to find out more about the 12 Strong movie release and giveaway to help you see the film!
12 Strong Movie Release and Giveaway
12 STRONG is one of the great unknown stories of American valor. Twelve brave U.S. soldiers dropped everything and ventured into an unknown land, outnumbered 5,000 to 1 to complete one of the most successful special forces missions of all time. However, they had to use the rudimentary tactics of the Afghan horse soldiers rather than state-of-the-art warfare to battle the heavily-armed Taliban. This is the amazing story of these 12 heroes and the families who wondered if they would come home alive.
About the Movie
“We’ve seen a lot of Navy SEAL movies, which are very smash-and-grab approaches, which is what they do best, better than anyone,” actor Chris Hemsworth said in an interview with Cinema Blend. “With Special Forces guys, they embed themselves in a community over a course of months or years, and it’s a diplomatic duty and relationship building within these communities to achieve their outcome.”
The film opens in theaters January 19 and also stars Michael Peña, Michael Shannon, Trevante Rhodes, and William Fichtner.
