After a terrible attack on September 11, on the eve of the US invasion of Afghanistan, a small group of commandos and CIA agents were ordered to enter the territory of the country to seize a bridgehead and provide an adjustment for air strikes. To complete the task. The special unit penetrates into Afghanistan, where it contacts local Taliban opponents. True, the brave men did not expect that a detachment of local field commander Abdul Rashid Dostum would meet the Americans on horseback. Thus, instead of heavy armored vehicles or even cars, the group received ordinary horses, turning into cavalry.
Nevertheless, the detachment, led by Captain Mitcheam, is successfully moving deeper into the country. The numerical superiority of the enemy exhausts the special forces, and the heavy armament of the Taliban makes a breakthrough almost impossible. But the improvised cavalrymen still manage to break the resistance, and capture the city of Mazar-i-Sharif. Six hundred prisoners and the capture of a strategically important city gave a clear advantage for the subsequent offensive. However, the unforeseen happened. The Taliban prisoners rebelled and got out of control.
From director Nicolai Fuglsig, 12 Strong is a history war drama based on the book Horse Soldiers from author Doug Stanton, and that was the original title for the film before they changed it. I just finished the book and it was absolutely amazing. It is mind boggling how little I knew about what these men did in sacrifice of our great country, and I can’t even tell you how many times the book gave me chills. This is the story of real-life action hero’s post 9/11, taking the fight to the terrorists to prove that they made a costly mistake messing with us. The cast includes Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Peña, and Trevante Rhodes. Check out the newly released official trailer below!!
Ted Takes Fun Facts, 12 Strong:
General Abdul Rashid Dostum was quoted, ‘I asked for a few Americans, they brought with them the courage of a whole Army’ according to eyewitness Robert Young Pelton’s in his March 2002 National Geographic Adventure article “The Legend of Heavy D and the Boys”. Pelton was the only journalist with the Green Beret and CIA team whose story is featured in “Horse Soldiers”.
Chris Hemsworth was initially offered the role during filming for Thor: Ragnarok and nearly turned it down hesitant to take on yet another physically demanding role and he also didn’t want to be away from his family. To get Hemsworth on board his wife Elsa Pataky was offered the role of his on-screen spouse, allowing them time together during filming.
