A team of Special Forces solders (Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon and Michael Peña among them) are sent into Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11. Their mission: team up with an Afghani warlord and take down a Taliban stronghold—in less than three weeks. Based on a true, declassified story, this simple war drama (on horseback, no less) captures some thrilling battle scenes. (Director Nicolai Fuglsig was an actual war photographer in Kosovo.) If only the story had more depth and drama to it. FULL REVIEW: Latest war movie proves Hollywood is still soldiering on by Devin D. O’Leary (1/18/2018). 130 minutes R.
