13 Hours The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

Many raised an eyebrow when they learned Sing that Michael Bay would direct 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, a feature-length film based on the book of the same name and focused on the events of the night of September 11, 2012, when the US diplomatic office in Benghazi, in Libya, it was stormed by Islamic militants.

This is because Bay, maker of a hyperkinetic and Captain Fantastic excessive cinema made to measure for the frequenters of the multiplexes, from Bad Boys to Transformers via Armageddon and Pearl Harbor, at first glance does not seem the right person to bring to the cinema a tragic and controversial chapter of American history, whose repercussions are still felt on the political level in the media coverage of the election campaign by Hillary Clinton (in the film, which focuses only on the attack itself, the political consequences are omitted outside the usual captions in the titles of tail).

In fact it is difficult, based solely on what we have seen so far, even in other films based on real events (see the already mentioned Pearl Harbor, although the real component is limited, and the latest Pain & Gain – Muscles and Money), imagine a filmmaker like Bay at the helm of a project that, by its nature, would require a more measured approach than the bombastic tendencies of the director, accustomed to a very “masculine” celebration of American virility, in particular through the presence of armed forces in the various Transformers . And in this context it is not surprising even to learn that the film’s consultants expressed doubts about the compatibility between the project and the director. Paradoxically, the Suicide Squad public was right to agree with Bay, which for now has not invaded the rooms to see 13 Hours, perhaps because it is not a film that would be expected by the man who, to quote Roger Ebert, transformed one of the great national tragedies in “how the Japanese attacked an American love triangle.”
