Astonishing Film of a Real Event - OutStanding
on 4 December 2016
If I could add a few stars to the Film Rating I would. Tom Hanks is better than Outstanding as the Primary Hostage, and gave an astonishing performance; that superbly captured the the tension, drama, and complexity of what to us mere humans was an impossible situation. The film captures superbly the intricacies and tension involved in a fast moving hostage scenario.
It also highlights perfectly the extraordinary level of training and skills possessed by the Navy Seals. Much is written about the Navy Seals involved in this kind of situation, most of it aimed at popularist dramatisation for circulation figures. This Film however brings into sharp focus, the reality, the extrordinary level of the Navy Seals Professional Skills, and the Co-ordination required in these kinds of situations; in a way I have not seen before. It is as close to the real thing as you can get in a film
It is impossible to recommend this Film too highly. Tom Hanks is outstanding, and the whole Production Team have done an incredible job putting together a tense, realistic, record of events of a Real Life situation that took place in 2009. By the time it ends, you gain an immense respect for Tom Hanks ability as an Actor ..... but above all else, you gain a true perspective on the superb level of training and expertise possessed by the Navy Seals, and an enduring, respect for their professional skills.
Truly .... Truly ..... Outstanding ....., it is an unmissable film, run dont walk to watch it.
