The film "Cavalry" (original title "12 Strong") are tied as the military-Patriotic film that affects a long time ago sore subject — attack 11 September the war against the Taliban. Movies at this topic already had removed a large quantity, so I don't want to delve into the theory explain how important this USA Patriotic theme and combat terrorists. Although I myself like to watch war movies, some even included me in collection and I love them periodically to review. But here in these films the situation and the situation of the fighting shows the most realistic and intense, gave the spirit of realism. I would perhaps even didn't pay attention to this movie, if not part Chris Hemsworth Michael peña Michael Shannon. But but in the movie wasn't nothing they showed was even a small disappointment from their game.

According to the plot of the movie hero Chris Hemsworth in the role of captain American soldier, not having a certain combat skills and experience, eager to fight on the field of battle is commendable, but silly, given that he's married and he has children. With one hand, he is the most "pure" of all soldiers, no wonder about him, the General said the Taliban's: ""In your eyes don't seen death. Your eyes say that you never were killed"". Yourself from fight scenes look a bit ridiculous when the soldiers, representing the cavalry, riding on horses and with guns in the hands of the fire at the Taliban. One of the few pluses of the film — it's the decor and atmosphere of Afghanistan, which shows the most realistic. The ending of the film leaves a more or less positive emotions.

In the end, I will say that "Cavalry" — is one of the very few movies that disappointed me, from the viewing of which I was expecting a lot more film on one time.

Nor for who not secret that the Ministry of defense of the United States of America have long "finger on the pulse" and willingly cooperates with Hollywood in construction or other paintings. Willingly helping in the filming of such films as "the hurt locker", "Best shooter", "G. I. Jane" and"Black Hawk down" for the sake of attracting more a larger number of recruits in the ranks of the U.S. army. In the latter case, thanks to the talent of Director Ridley Scott even managed to present one of the most shameful failures of American military in a true ode to the motto of the Marines "not to leave anyone on the battlefield". Another product of this creativity and was this film directed by Nicholas Fulci.

The plot tells the story of a super secret instructions of the Ministry of defense of the United States of America on the existence, conduct and the results of which up to relatively recently not been known to the public. When, after the horrific terrorist attack of 11 September 2001, dozens of American soldiers sent to the heart of Afghanistan. What would be teaming up with the Afghan resistance army of the Northern front, to put an end to the militants-talibanism in the country and avenge hundreds of the thousands of deaths of Americans.

To judge about the reliability on the events screen is very difficult. However, watching the events on screen events very interesting. So as starting the picture with the terrifying attacks of 11 September, the filmmakers leave behind thinking about policy obsessed pretentious patriotism of American soldiers. Fully surrendering to the drama, in which considerable attention is paid to the Afghan side of the resistance to the global terrorism. Of course, not all aspects of culture, worldview, mentality and way of life of the Afghan people was demonstrated on the screen. However, in something century, "save the world" as not only Americans, but equal attention to the huge number of characters not can not make the film more valuable than the majority of modern entertainment blockbuster. That creates the impression that American soldiers stand in the way of real heroes who are ready to become casualties of the war against terrorism. When actually, that the operation was only one of the first steps the invasion of American soldiers in Afghanistan. In including with the desire of placing a military base on the territory of Uzbekistan for the creation of act of intimidation of the Russian Federation.

However, the weak link of the pictures turned out exactly the Director Nicholas Fulci, which my developed in the screen the whole potential of this history. Of course, as dramatic pictures turned out quite not bad. However no emotion when viewing pictures it but not cause. A similar observation and the action scenes, which in the picture it would seem to abound. However, when observation of them or the heart is not stops, no spirit intercepts. Saving the situation with the presence of iconic Jerry Bruckheimer on the post of the producer, who have made the movie more epic and spectacular than could single-handedly make the United Pulse.

Chris Hemsworth completed your screen. But to talk about the individual the role is very difficult. So both watching him, eager to see him character remake Red Dawn. Played well and Michael Shannon. But his character took only a minor role in picture his character on my opinion was absolutely not is opened. It is impossible not to mention Rob Riggle, the Geoff Stultz and William Fichtner, who played their roles. Especially Riggle, which slowly began to move away from the usual images of idiots and fools echolocating.

6 out of 10

Cavalry — it's not quite a bad symbiosis of the military drama and Thriller, to see that it is possible and worth it. Not matter somewhat heavy topic, the picture turned out quite easy. The on-screen drama is readily felt, America again appears as Characters, and spectacle turned out quite not bad. However, when the good leadership, the picture might be much more spectacular and ambitious. What could not provide Director Nicholas Fulci.

Impressed with the poster rollicking galloping on a horse Chris Hemsworth, I was in a deep skepticism about the properties of the picture itself, waiting for the disappointment of garbage content and ridiculous plot, but were met not all the fears and concerns, so that cinema, according to feel that it was possible to put in a wide field to a considerable distance, as from full enthusiasm and the absolute disgust of what was useful in such cases, the distrust of historical facts, altered writer a real basis and artistic interpretation of all the circumstances is not that deeds, not the adventure of the army team, on which the same success it was possible to remove and drama the Comedy, noting the heroism of fidelity to the oath and military duty, that, in fact, takes place on our eyes, forcing us to oscillate between "believe" and"don't believe", "must" and"may not be" leaving a safe loophole for the curiosity, supported not so much by the fighting spirit of the American special forces, how many truth of life of an Afghan General, raising the spirit, instilling confidence in allies, replacing them with the instructions of their father — commanders, almost without becoming a stranger to the soldiers fighting the godfather of that causes far more of a surprise than the cavalry attack the Torah, metaphorically characterizing characteristic of Afghanistan a complex mixture of eras and mores that has been telling the American field officer of the Afghan General Dostum, violating the uniqueness of its traditional and other people, becoming the star of a spectacular version of little-known events, reminiscent of a special way of distant countries, for centuries, the worshippers of treason and betrayal.
