What the Critics say
Lindsey Bahr Stirring and solid, 12 Strong is the kind of film that might make you think twice about January releases, and spotlights a riveting story in our recent history that many Americans might not know.
Tomatometer 12 Strong has a solid cast, honorable intentions, and a thrilling, fact-based story - all of which are occasionally enough to balance a disappointing lack of depth or nuance.
