Chris Hemsworth Goes For "Unique" Journey With '12 Strong'

Chris Hemsworth Matt Damon Michael Shannon attend world premiere of 12 Strong in New York

Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig, 12 Strong is set to release on January 19. Chris Hemsworth and his co-stars in 12 Strong trained with none other than the Special Force!

12 Strong is set in the harrowing days following 9/11 when a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Hemsworth), is chosen to be the first U.S. troops sent into Afghanistan for an extremely risky mission. After some assistance from his friend and Chief Warrant Officer Hal Spencer (Michael Shannon), Nelson, Spencer, and ten of their fellow soldiers, codenamed "Task Force Dagger", head to Uzbekistan where they're briefed on a mission of retaking a vital Taliban stronghold. Along the way, there are brief acknowledgements that Afghanistan is the "graveyard of empires" and that the war is far from over, but rather than consider the long-term ramifications, 12 Strong just wants the comfort of good guys versus bad guys on a battlefield.

NFL NOTEBOOK: Steelers, Jets fire offensive coordinator
The news comes three days after the the Steelers were eliminated by the underdog Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round. Again, I'm not one who has an issue with a team being like that.

"12 Strong", a film that tells the story of the US response in Afghanistan to 9/11, will begin showing tonight in Enid. We have seen it happen in the past but this time we have something bigger!

After a couple years training with his unit of Green Berets, Capt. Mitch Nelson (played by Hemsworth) has transferred to a cushy desk job when he and his family watch in horror as two planes strike the World Trade Center. And that means returning to his role as captain in the Special Forces.

Some thoughts on YouTube's new partner program policies
Earlier this month we told you about rumblings that the streaming platform would roll out a new subscription streaming service. Previously, creators could join YPP if they had more than 10,000 views over the lifetime of their activity on the site.

Unlike his non-superhero star turns in Blackhat and the Huntsman movies, Hemsworth's charisma and physical presence really pop here; in the insane situation of soldiers on horses facing off with an armored division, he at least looks strong enough to survive the experience.

SIMON THOMPSON, IGN: "Bearing in mind that this is a Jerry Bruckheimer production, 12 Strong is one of his more restrained and considered exercises in hero storytelling even if some of the beats it tries to hit are slightly off". We need more war dramas that aren't about mindless patriotism (it's not repeatedly bludgeoned into your skull that these men volunteered immediately after the tragic events on 9/11) and blind hatred, built upon the desire to kill the enemy.
