Better Than Expected
1 August 2019 | by info-354-549559See all my reviews

Reading the description I went into this with medial expectations thinking this would be a tears of the sun movie of 1st world military saves 3rd world.

What I got was actually some interesting dialogue, some good acting and overall an interesting movie.

A fun action flick that kept me entertained from the start to the end, had some exciting moments, some sad moments and the fact that it was based on a true story made it interesting, the photos of the actual hotel and team brought it together.

Its probably going to get some hate from the Israel haters, but screw those troll clowns, dont feed them.
