“Thor” transforms a courageous cavalry in “12 Strong”
In his latest action – 12 Strong, actor Chris Hemsworth will be dropping the image of Thunder Thor to transform himself into a true "Captain America" in history.
“12 Strong” is the story of a top secret mission in Afghanistan after the shadow of the bloody September 11 incident. A special squad of forces headed by captain Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth) was sent by the government to Afghanistan in response to the attack on the United States. 12 elite soldiers have left their families, heading for the harsh north of Afghanistan to persuade local soldiers to fight the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
The film's official trailer opens with a scene of negotiations between Afghan military forces and terrorists. Facing the offer of surrender, the terrorists are frantically suicidal with the available mines.
It is only a short scene, but enough to help the audience imagine the fierceness of the war against terror that 12 soldiers are engaged in. In the midst of the harsh weather of the desert, they face countless dangers and their hands are always on the trigger, day by day fumbling around the battlefield where life and death are only narrowly separated.
And here, the brave warriors of the United States had to adapt to the new combat situation by becoming cavalry on their horses. They just have to overcome the huge barriers of language and culture to gain the trust of the indigenous soldier. Besides, they help the weak army with the rudimentary weapons of Afghanistan to fight with thousands of brutal and savage enemies.
Standing next to Chris Hemsworth are 11 action movie stars starring 11 stalwarts of special force, which includes Michael Shannon, Michael Peña, Trevante Rhodes, Geoff Stults, Thad Luckinbill, Austin Stowell, Ben O'Toole, Austin Hébert, Kenneth Miller, Kenny Sheard and Jack Kesy.
Specially, the film also has participation of the beautiful police officer of “Fast & Furious” series – Elsa Pataky. She is also the wife of the real life of Captain Chris Hemsworth. This is the first time Chris and Elsa have played the couple in a movie. The blonde actress Elsa Pataky is extremely excited about this collaboration. "I and Chris have been preparing for the role for seven years," she said.
"12 Strong" is adapted from the novel "Horse Soldiers" by writer, war correspondent Doug Stanton, based on events and characters completely true. The image of 12 American soldiers fighting on horseback helped the novel land on the bestseller list of the New York Times for six months, and promised to continue the success of “12 Strong”.
