News author: Lisa Bennett / 2020-05-10 19:24:59In the Netflix mega hit «Tyler Rake: Extraction» Chris Hemsworth really gets it. And for those who don't get enough of the Marvel star, «Operation: 12 Strong» is the next action film now available from the streaming service.
Anyone who sees Chris Hemsworth as more than the pounding superhero he has been giving as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2011 may have been confirmed in his attitude with «Tyler Rake: Extraction». The recently released Netflix actioner is already an absolute mega hit for the streaming giant, so work is already in progress.
But if you don't want to wait so long for the mercenary to turn your opponents into small pieces of wood again, with «Operation: 12 Strong» you will get another Hemsworth replacement on Netflix from today.
After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2011, the United States sent a twelve-strong elite unit to Afghanistan (including Michael Shannon, Michael Peña and Trevante Rhodes) under the command of the still inexperienced Captain Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth).
The force's mission is to form an alliance with the Northern Alliance that controls the area and join forces with its new allies to fight the Taliban and al-Qaida, the organization behind the attacks. Between cultural differences, inadequate equipment and inferiority in numbers, soldiers face the greatest task of their lives ...
If you have a weakness for (anti) war films and can also handle a good portion of pro-America pathos, you will see a tough, straightforward action drama with «Operation: 12 Strong».
The conclusion of the 3-star FILMSTARTS review: «'Operation: 12 Strong' is a heroic story about twelve fearless US soldiers who face an entire army of Taliban. It is a good thing that Nicolai Fuglsig's powerful action drama on real events otherwise patriotism would not be so easy to swallow. «
