So while looking forward to plenty of action when 12 Strong finally debuts in theaters. It’s not necessarily about the action. 12 STRONG is set following after 9/11 in the harrowing days when a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson. They are chosen to be the first U.S. troops sent to Afghanistan for a dangerous mission. These Green Berets were able to develop confidence with the Afghani locals when they dropped in after the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
Now they must convince General Dostum the Northern Alliance commander to join with them to fight their adversary the Taliban and Al Qaeda allies. In addition to overcoming mutual disbelief and a vast cultural divide. The Americans habituated to state of the art warfare must adopt the elementary tactics of the Afghani horse soldiers. The new allies face disagreements and outgunned by a brutal enemy that does not take prisoners. The 12 Strong will show a little band of Americans drop in and really imbrue themselves in the local Afghan culture. They are same parts, soldiers and diplomats.
