Two stories of heroism
May is Military Appreciation Month, and we can’t say enough about the sacrifices the men and women of our armed forces make each and every day. From generation to generation, there are countless stories that should be recognized for their heroism – and these are just two of them.
The 15:17 to Paris is the true story of three friends on vacation who stood up to prevent a terrorist attack on a Paris bound train.
More than just a story of their heroism, the movie features the real-life heroes playing themselves on the big screen – and when you realize this, it makes every action in the movie that much more real – because it is. It shows exactly how the subjects remember it, because they’re acting it out. And it makes for a powerful movie that’ss available to watch now on Vudu in up to 4K + HDR.
Now available to rent (in up to 4K + HDR), 12 Strong is based on the true story of Special Forces ODA 595 and their insertion into Afghanistan just weeks after 9/11, in an effort to help General Dostum of the Afghan Northern Alliance capture a key Taliban stronghold. De Oppresso Liber.
Incredibly, the team was able to accomplish their mission within 23 days of arriving in Afghanistan – when the DOD had estimated they’d be in country for a year.
