The Siege of Jadotville

Using every bullet twice.

Based on a true story, the main bulk of it pertains to an United Nations force of peace keepers deployed in the Congo and their desperate attempt to hold their position against superior enemy numbers despite lack of resupply, air support, and reinforcements. Actually the movie does a good job of showing just how screwed they are at every turn.

Mandatory explosive action shot!

This and the many action sequences make it highly entertaining. It helps that the acting, sets and effects are decent too, and that the film doesn't try stretch itself out to more than what it is - basically one long fight. If you like stories with war, guns and action, you will enjoy this and I personally wouldn't mind watching it again. I give The Siege of Jadotville three mercenaries out of five.
