Rescue Dawn

I watched this tonight and really enjoyed it, mainly because it is based on a true story but also because the acting was honest and impressive, Christian Bale plays the part of Dieter Denler so well, he starts off his part almost sane and as time in captivity and his experience in the jungle takes its toll he morphs into exactly what I would have expected a man to behave like.
When the ovie started I thought it was going to be a Corny Vietnam film but it turned out to be a story of survival and there was very little in terms of war fighting.

I enjoyed it and would likely watch t all over again. Give it it a go and let us know what you think.

Vietnam POW Dieter Dengler that Herzog previously filmed as a documentary in 1997 entitled "Little Dieter Needs to Fly." Masterfully realized, "Rescue Dawn" emerges as Herzog's most accessible film.
