| When Bay becomes a sea- superb
Finally a Michael Bay movie without his typical style.13 hours is an honest depiction of a heroic struggle of a number of individuals stranded in a confusing situation at Benghazi, Libya.The plot takes care to develop the characters. In fact half of the first half is meticulously used to develop the characters and the tempo. But once everything is in place, BOOOM. Once the movie started taking gear, you cannot practically even blink. The director does not make any effort to make any political commentary. He simply shows the events through the eyes of those who were there. Unfortunately, this was the lowest grossing film of Bay's career. Maybe this will become a cult movie in the coming years. Strongly recommended.
