Why does 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi look like it's been filmed with a camcorder at times? It's especially noticeable with the colors, especially of fire or harsh lighting at night but also in the camera work. I'm not even talking about the shaky cam for action sequences but the hand-held look of almost every tracking shot and even pans between two people talking.
With an estimated budget of $50,000,000 I doubt that they couldn't afford a Steadicam, decent digital cameras and professional color grading. So was it an artistic choice? What would Bay have gone for with this? I found it nothing but distracting, taking me out of the movie more than once. The movie is not going for found footage or a mockumentary look or whatever to enhance "realism" so what gives?
