By putting Chris Hemsworth in charge of the dozen-person Army Special Forces unit at the heart of "12 Strong", director Nicolai Fuglsig and producer Jerry Bruckheimer ensured their war movie would not be marching through any morally ambiguous minefields that would come to surround the War in Afghanistan.
"12 Strong" focuses on the long-secret mission of a dozen Special Forces troops who parachuted into Northern Afghanistan in the weeks following 9/11 to attack a key installation of Taliban forces. Also speaking with the real men that went on this mission, Hemsworth got the impression that they had no ego while recounting these events.
She said, "We want one of us to be with the family, with the kids". For instance, I am not entirely sure Elsa Pataky, who plays Mitch's wife, has ever seen a camera before. I really appreciated what she did to get us together because none of this would have happened.
"I think my hesitation, I had no idea what it was gonna be", Hemsworth said. "And it shows incredible bravery and heroism on both sides, which is very important for me". "People fell, they definitely fell", Peña said". They were soldiers who are now refugees. "As actors, we love to imagine that we can do heroic things, but we just pretend to do them". A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality.

The full cast of "12 Strong", premiered the powerful new war drama in NY. The hunky Hemsworth certainly has the chiseled jaw and cerulean eyes of the '50s cheesecake dreamboat he's meant to be here, but there's one problem: his American accent.
The film is based on a book called Horse Soldiers, and that's because early in the movie, Dostrum offers Nelson and his men six horses, despite the fact that many of them have never ridden and there are 12 of them. "For me, it was crucial just to sit down and listen to them". "It was essential to portray this story with any real truth".
The film opens with a montage of Al-Qaeda terrorist attacks, from the 1993 World Trade Center bombings to the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania to the U.S.S. Cole. A sequence such as a father having to tell his children he has to go fight is as heartbreaking as one could imagine.
You can't just tell one part of a story while pretending the rest doesn't exist.
"12 Strong" rides into theaters this weekend.
