Who exactly thought it was a good idea to let Michael Bay direct a film about a still current and upcoming election issue hot button like the story of the attack on the American Diplomatic Compound in Benghazi, Libya? Yeah, that’s kinda a rhetorical question.

But still, with John Krasinski (still trying to reinvent his image) as the newest member of a badass security team protecting the compound(s) and some typically over-the-top Bay carnage, there’s no question this is going to put butts in seats. But what did the crew think?

Chris, Herman, Ashley and JC weigh in. Man, between this and another review going up tomorrow, I suspect this week we’re really gonna get hit hard with the disgruntled commenting stick.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
