Ambush In Waco - In The Line Of Duty [1993] [DVD]
Ambush In Waco - In The Line Of Duty [1993] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Timothy Daly

4.0 out of 5 stars pseudo christianity, 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
quite an interesting account of the siege and subsequent events
people can become influenced by leaders who have powers of
oratory. we remember the jonestown suicides.
the gun laws being lax in the us will encourage such massacres
as recently as the schools

3.0 out of 5 stars a british blunder, 10 Dec 2012
This review is from: Zulu Dawn [DVD] (DVD)
quite accurate portrayal of colonial british warfare. a typical british blunder makes custers
last stand look small by comparision.
the british seem capable of the worlds greatest blunderers.
singapore dardenelles yorktown saratoga neworleans dunkirk
we only just beat napolean thanks to the prussians help.
the boer war was only won by vast numbers of troops half a million.
we cant field that many troops today even with a larger population.
we blundered into ww2 too early. the french should have sorted out hitler in 1936.
oh well providence did enable us to win in the end with american and russian help.

3.0 out of 5 stars mias rescue mission, 23 Nov 2012
This review is from: Uncommon Valour Dvd [1983] (DVD)
quite entertaining tale about rescuing pows in laos
actually missions were mounted by bo gritz in real life
however they never were implemented due to various circumstances
a few americans did escape vietnamised captivity
one pilot in laos and a green beret in south vietnam

3.0 out of 5 stars wyatt earp parallel, 12 Nov 2012
This review is from: Warlock [DVD] [1959] (DVD)
quite an entertaining western. good story line with parallels to gunfight at
ok corral. was surprised it had a u certificate with the violence especially
the knife attack upon widmark. apparently the censors dont mind the killings
but bawk at any sex or nudity scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars covert ops, 9 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
interesting reconstructions of operations in vietnam
grenada and bosnia.quite well made with insight into
these clandestine operations.the bat21 movie didnt touch on the navy seals involvment.as with all dramas
liberties are taken

3.0 out of 5 stars germanys last blitkrieg, 22 Oct 2012
quite entertaining although characters are fictionalised. peiper was the main german tank commander in the real
battle. his men were responsible for the malmedy massacre although he was not present.
this is a parallel to the my lai massacre when men commited the massacre unnder calley
when then again the commander wasnt present.the japanese general in manila was executed by macarthur for
massacres commited by his troops. obviously commanders cant be everywhere so the responsible lies
elsewhere.it must be hard to fight wars by rules maybe wars should be banned completely.

3.0 out of 5 stars star spangled duo, 12 Oct 2012
quite entertaining story of volunteer american pilot
based on thousands of americans joining rcaf before
america entered war. no doubt musical comedy to boost
morale in 1941.it would have been easy to enlist in
canada by crossing border. also as accents similar
germans wouldnt know difference.

3.0 out of 5 stars african adventure, 8 Oct 2012
This review is from: Raid on Entebbe [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
quite entertaining account of rescue in 1976 of hostages and mission objective achieved
the ending could have been longer when they returned to israel also the scene of bronson
inspecting dead hijackers wouldnt have happened as they had to leave rather promptly
anyway thats the liberties film makers take drama apparently has the top priority

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
quite entertaining who dunnit film
based on agatha christie novel
not as well made as 1945 version
the novel and the film differ in the ending
