Chris Hemsworth leads a group of 12 soldiers as the first post-9/11 attack on the Taliban in Afganistan in this true(ish) story that surprised us more than a bit. I mean, sure, you got Michael Peña, Michael Shannon, William Fichtner, Saïd Taghmaoui, and strangely (that we wished we had seen more of him) Rob Riggle. And no question, this is a frag-waver (IE: big patriotism+lots of killing), not normally our type of thing and yet…well, let Chris and Michael give you the goods. Either way, we hope there’s another Captain Amerithor movie soon.

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.
