Saw 13 Hours over the weekend. It was a very good movie and things got a little dusty for me at the end. I agree with John Krasinski that the movie is first and foremost about the men involved. I kept asking myself, "Where do we find such men?"
However, just as a casual movie-goer the fact that the words "President Obama", "Barack Obama", "Secretary Clinton" or "Hillary Clinton" were never said or appeared on screen in the movie seemed like a willful omission. You cannot show the White House on the screen and not wonder what the President was doing during those 13-hours.
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is well worth your time to see in the theaters.
