Movie Info

The Hornet's Nest is a groundbreaking and immersive feature film, using unprecedented real footage to tell the story of an elite group of U.S. troops sent on a dangerous mission deep inside one of Afghanistan's most hostile valleys. The film culminates with what was planned as a single day strike turning into nine intense days of harrowing combat against an invisible, hostile enemy in the country's complex terrain where no foreign troops have ever dared to go before. Two embedded journalists, a father and son, bravely followed the troops through the fiercest and most blood-soaked battlegrounds of the conflict. What resulted is an intensely raw feature film experience that will give audiences a deeply emotional and authentic view of the heroism at the center of this gripping story. (c) Freestyle

Audience Reviews for The Hornet's Nest

  • Nov 08, 2014
    An intriguing documentary on the ongoing struggle in Afghanistan and the day to day operations our troops go through, captured through the lenses of a father and son who are both journalists. While there is not as much back story on the soldiers as there should be, this is still a riveting documentary that shows the hardship our military goes through ever y day fighting a war that will seemingly never end. The ending will tear your heart out, with an emotional final scene that should stick in your mind for a long time.
