        Excellent film about a little-known event in history.

        To my delight, "The Siege of Jadotville" is not the jingoistic "Zulu" remake I had expected. It's a perfectly suitable war film touching on politics and bureaucracy as much as heroism. Average to good acting with engaging battle scenes. It's worth your time, but don't expect to be moved very much.

        Watched this on Netflix last night and was interested in the storyline, much like Zulu back in the day. This film severely struggles outside the conflict, I think the film was stronger when it stuck with the battle. I think Strongs character helped finance the film but its these side characters who sink the film. The battle is the most interesting part, just having a relentless bombardment of enemy troops would have added to the tension. The switch off the battle field is almost comical at times. Good for a night in.
