Danger Close

I haven't seen a thread on this yet. Look decent enough, but we shall see.

Half way through — damn...

Good movie so far, in terms of how it is filmed.

Finished. Humbling movie.

One of the best Vietnam war movies have seen.

Watched it over the weekend. Good movie. Did a good job of showing how a infantry company fight with platoons supporting one another. It even showed how the FA supported the fight, hence the name of the movie. Don't know too much about this battle since it was an Aussie fight. Overall, good movie, worth the $5.99 on DirectTV on Demand.

Watched last night. Great visuals throughout the entire movie. Captured the tension of impending doom very well. Travis Fimmel was kind of the same as he was in Vikings though. Give it 3.75/5.

This and The Odd Angry Shot are the only two Australian Vietnam war movies I know of.

One of the most underrated war movies ever made IMHO. Haven’t seen it in about 15 years.
