The Hornet's Nest Full Movie Download Mp4


Foo Armed only with their cameras, Peabody and Emmy Award-winning conflict Journalist Mike Boettcher, and his son, Carlos, provide unprecedented access into the longest war in U.S. history. Career Journalist Mike Boettcher takes his son to the war zone in Afghanistan, covering U.S. Combat Troops on the front lines. What starts out as an effort to reconnect with his son, becomes a remarkable true story and fight for survival for all. Before starting, the movie was more-so a documentary on the journalist than it was the soldiers. It seemed the soldiers were sidelined the whole time and more of a side story for the journalists. Unlike Restrepo, the movie was pitched from the journalist&#39;s (Mike and Carlos Boetcher) point of view and mainly from Mike&#39;s point of view as the father. It isn&#39;t until the last 15 minutes of the movie that they seem to care at all about the soldiers, finally having interviews with them on their combat actions and their opinions, which even then seemed more like a 30 second piece than the reason for the movie.<br/><br/>The first major thing watching the movie to bug me, however, was that they felt the need to add a vast amount of sound effects. From added gun noises, to yelling, to bullet sounds, they would frequently place these added effects over the combat footage as if that combat (real combat) wasn&#39;t exciting enough. Being an Afghan War Veteran myself, I felt this was kind of a jab, to say that the soldier&#39;s actual stories and actual combat was not worthy of Hollywood. After also watching movies such as Restrepo, I feel this was completely unnecessary.<br/><br/>Those things aside, the movie wasn&#39;t awful. I do feel it should have been more about the actual soldiers and the war rather than Mike. I found it rather ironic as well that with him taking so much of the movie to direct to himself and his son, and take away from the soldiers, that he later goes on to say that he was trying to tell their stories.<br/><br/>Overall, for a civilian the movie will hopefully paint a slightly better picture on the war, and it was still done quite well. I just have my feelings on the side due to my past experiences. This movie has been showing around the country in limited release for several months. Either it didn&#39;t show around here or I missed it, so I have been waiting for the BD, which arrived today. I have been following the movie on FB, etc, since I know the journalist/ producer Mike Boettcher, however slightly. That is, we attended the same high school (Ponca City, Oklahoma) at the same time, he two years my senior . Mike is an Emmy Award - winning journalist who works for ABC News.<br/><br/>This film has some of the feel of Restrepo which was also filmed in Afghanistan. The first half of the film is about Mike and his son Carlos embedding together for a year- a father and son bonding to help repair their distant relationship which was due to Mike having been on assignment around the world and not able to spend enough time with his children. Carlos must learn quickly both how to survive and how to be a photojournalist. The second half occurs after Carlos returns home and Mike moves on to a mission into the Kunar Province to rout out a Taliban commander. Things don&#39;t go so well.<br/><br/>This movie is a realistic accounting - it&#39;s actual footage- of war/ fighting in the Afghan countryside and also is a tribute to the soldiers who have fought and died. It&#39;s an easy recommend for me.<br/><br/>(For the 10/11 Not Helpful votes, Bite Me!) The Hornet’s Nest lets its soldiers do most of the talking. The action — the rapid fire of automatic weapons, the crack of a sniper’s shot, the medevac rescues — is vivid.
