The Outpost 2020 ★★★

Watched Aug 02, 2020

The Outpost is a true story about a group of Army Personal manning an Outpost in Afghanistan during the US battle with the Taliban. I'm assuming this is taking place around the time we were hunting for Osama Bin Laden. 

The beginning of the film doesn't really have much of a plot. We are introduced to about 30 Army Soldiers ( you will never remember all their names) and basically the first half of the film is them just talking and then they are shot at by either the Taliban or regular Afghanistan civilians. This pretty much goes for most of the film. The last 1/3rd of the film is about the Outpost getting ready to be shut down and somehow the Taliban find out about it, and send hundreds of fighters to take over the Outpost. There is lots of shooting and killing on both side and it is a very intense battle.

Overall, I did enjoy this film but it reminded me of a better film with a similar plot in Black Hawk Down. This one was good, but no Black Hawk Down in my opinion.  For a longer discussion regarding this film, please check out our Youtube Channel, Sactown Movie Buffs and I've included a link below to the discussion. youtu.be/AvD-9eCE7AM
