Must begin by saying I'm not a fan of military action films or the glorification of war. When I stepped into the Hornet's Nest, I quickly realized this was unlike any war or soldier film I'd experienced. The true heroes in this film do not return home, will not receive an Oscar, nor will they see their children again. They didn't get their names in the credits -- and all the credit is due them. They gave their lives so that we may live ours free of terror. This is live footage from the worst parts of Afghanistan -- a film shot from a man who has spent his lifetime reporting from the war fields around the world. The last 10 minutes are some of the most moving you'll experience. When I left the Hornet's Nest, I had a profound new respect for our young men and women who do daily what the rest of us only take for granted. Go see this movie before you take a critical position about our soldiers and their efforts -- it will open your eyes and heart.

America's Must See DocumentaryReviewed byjeffberndtVote: 10/10
There's some decent footage in here, but it's ruined by an insultingly idiotic Z-grade action movie score that just never stops, for one second, ever. It's completely unnecessary and cheapens the real drama going on.
Almost as annoying is the tedious ego-stroking of the camera monkey and his son who keep interjecting themselves into the story with selfie shots, and a teeth-grating sound effect and text every few seconds when they switch camera views to let us know which of the two people that we truly don't give a damn about is filming the stuff that we'd like to actually watch.
To top it off, the camera monkey tries to over-sell the situations even more with infantile and cheesy exposition, voiceovers, self-interview clips, and clumsy and obvious post production to cut new audio into old footage, or to fake in camera effects.
The most disappointing thing is that this could have been a far better documentary if they'd done a lot less with it. Just show the events, and let the participants speak for themselves.
Citizen Soldier is an exemplar of how to do it right. Hornet's Nest is a warning about the journalist hijacking the story. What a sadly wasted opportunity.
The moving documentary The Hornet's Nest is a boots-on-the-ground look at America's war in Afghanistan.
