Hey guys just got back from seeing Rescue Dawn starring Christian Bale and Steve Zahn and I thoroughly enjoyed it. For those of you who don't know what the film is about, it portrays the true story of an American fighter pilot shot down and captured by the Viet Cong during the early years of the Vietnam Conflict.
The acting by all the major players and even the minor ones is dead-on, but the jungle really steals the show. Its beautiful but haunting as well and often is downright oppressive and seems to loom out over the theater goers as well as the characters on screen.
For those of you looking for a good summer film that is a different pace then your average blockbuster, check it out. Its a great movie and also a very interesting story of the Vietnam Conflict.
