13 HOURS: THE SE­CRET SOL­DIERS OF BENG­HAZI ★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM | SEVEN DAYS - TB

Di­rected by Michael Bay. Star­ring James Badge Dale, John Krasin­ski, Toby Stephens

Pain & Gain was dis­rep­utable fun, so maybe there’s hope for Michael Bay when some­body takes away his gi­ant ro­bot play­set? We couldn’t say. Some two hours-plus into this baf­fling tangle of un­in­tel­li­gi­ble ex­plo­sions, fly­ing body parts, pound­ing gun­fire and stuff burn­ing, we’re not en­tirely sure that Bay’s jit­tery recre­ation of the 2012 at­tack on a US diplo­matic com­pound in Beng­hazi doesn’t fea­ture gi­ant ro­bots. Aw­ful. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 144 min
