Goes Smooth and Balanced

I was waiting to watch the movie because it is based on the real life military operation of U.S to eliminate Taliban from Afghanistan. Having such story, the movie also feels larger than life; so this works really well for the idea and makes it an interesting flick.

The movie has multiple compelling points, the first is where 12 militarians leave to battle thousands of terrorists, other one is where Captain Mitch Nelson has to win the battle to justify himself and the last one is where the audience watches a huge conflict.
