Review :

Menyaksikan film yang mengangkat kejadian kisah nyata, selalu memiliki nilai lebih dibanding film imajinasi biasa, apalagi dengan tema film perang yang umumnya bisa lebih menyentuh dan mengaduk emosi penonton. Dengan nama besar Michael Bay sebagai produser dan sutradara, film ini cukup mengena untuk menggarisbawahi hal penting yang sebenarnya terjadi pada saat itu.

Seeing a movie that based on a true story, always have more value than the ordinary imagination movie, especially with the theme of war movies that generally can be touched and stirred the audience emotionally. With a famous name Michael Bay as a producer and director, the film is quite striking to emphasize the important thing that actually happenned at that time.

Adegan bagaimana dalam keadaan genting sang atasan CIA tidak memberikan ijin kepada tim GRS untuk menyelamatkan sang Dubes, bisa dikatakan menjadi adegan paling kontroversial di film ini. Pada akhirnya, perdebatan mengenai hal ini pun tidak terelakkan.

Scenes on how the CIA boss did not give permission for GRS team to rescue the ambassador, could be the most controversial scene in this movie. At the end, debate was inevitable.

Dalam kehidupan nyata, kepala CIA memberikan pernyataan bahwa tidak ada larangan tersebut (stand-down order). Sementara mantan Army Ranger Kris “Tonto” Paronto meyakini 100 persen bahwa perintah tersebut benar-benar ada. Apabila kebenaran dari kejadian tersebut dapat mempengaruhi karir politik seseorang, ia menyesalkan karena hal itulah yang terjadi. (sumber : wikipedia).

In the real life, the CIA chief gave a statement that there is no such prohibition (the “stand-down” order). Meanwhile, the former Army Ranger Kris “Tonto” Paronto believes 100 percents that the order actually exists. If the truth of the incident can affect of a person’s political career, he regrets that it happened. (Source: wikipedia).

Bagaimanapun kejadiannya, secara keseluruhan film ini layak ditonton sebagai salah satu film sejarah yang menghibur.

In any case, the overall film is worth watching as one of the entertaining historical movie.
