Good movie, but great story. If you watch it, make sure to watch it through the ending credits, they show actual photos of real operation.

I watched this last week and really enjoyed it.

It is fast enough to keep ones interest, but slow enough to let the content sink in.

The people that ran this operation had some nerves of steel.

I read that Haley Bennett's character, Yola Reitman, was the key player in that operation. Certainly moreso than Evans' character. A lot of the stuff depicted in the movie actually happened, to one degree or another. Apparently C-130 flights happened several times.

Overall, not a horrible flick, real history, not sure how much was fictionalized.

- Had a hard time with Chris Evans as a ...Israeli operative
- The liberals undoubtably will pan this as a white savior movie that didn't need to be made Roll Eyes
- Haley Bennett flying into Sudan with a low-cut top, unaccompanied...highly unlikely
- Over-use of the term Navy SEALs....particularly over the radio net
- Good to see Greg Kinear
- Haley Bennett Big Grin
