13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi movie quotes tell the story of the 2012 attacks on the US Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, specifically how those on the ground there reacted to the terrorism. The action thriller was adapted into a screenplay by Chuck Hogan from the book 13 Hours by Mitchell Zuckoff. Michael Bay directed the film, which opened in theaters on January 15, 2016.

In 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, a team of civilians with backgrounds in military special forces, are introduced including Boon (David Denman), Tig (Dominic Fumusa), Rone (James Badge Dale), Bub (Toby Stephens), Oz (Max Martini) and, the newest team member, Jack (John Krasinski). The team is serving as security contractors to the CIA in Libya at the diplomatic compound in Benghazi. So when the embassy is attacked by local militia, the team springs into action.

But the team's efforts to protect the Americans in danger at the compound are stopped by the Chief (David Costabile) who tells the team that it's not their place. But the rub is that no one is helping those in the embassy, despite desperate pleas to the US State Department for assistance. Knowing that lives are at risk, the secret soldiers of Benghazi take it upon themselves to do the right thing, risk their own lives and their jobs to save others.

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi joined theaters already playing other fine films including The Revenant, Concussion, The Hateful Eight and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
