Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

The Siege of Jadotville—
military film based on real life events—relies on a good script to tell its story and spices up the story with a few scenes such as the one where the characters tip a jeep over to use the Gatling gun against enemy air attack. The movie deserves a watch to honor the men who fought this siege.
