13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI
This story is about the heroic actions of a security team defending a US compound but, because it is just continuous action, it lacks adequate depth and becomes boring. The acting looks like it’s done by rote and the story is long and texturally flat. There is no character development. The soundtrack is good and the action well done — but it just seems to be all about people shooting at each other. The cinematography is done well. Overall, this cliched, confusing film doesn’t do justice to what are clearly important historical events.
