What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Geoffrey McNab quote iconBay's gung-ho treatment demeans story.

Cape Times
Todd McCarthy quote iconThe film's patriotic tenor is as unmistakable as its sentimentality.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconOverall, I liked the film well enough to give it a slight recommendation as it's easy to get caught up fully in the action and tension. But once removed from that and looking back at the experience, the pic's flaws come more into the light.

Tomatometer quote icon13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is a comparatively mature and restrained effort from Michael Bay, albeit one that can't quite boast the impact its fact-based story deserves.
