HASH(0x8ae8e87c) out of 5 stars Beat the Commies 20 July 2014
By James D. Crabtree - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This film looks at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, a turning point in France's Indochina War. French Foreign Legionnaires had seized a vital, but remote, area of what would later become North Vietnam and were soon surrounded by Communist-backed Vietminh forces. The story revolves around four French captains who volunteer to parachute into the besieged base and each man's reason for fighting...

This black and white film does not fall for the line that the communists just wanted democracy and independence from France. France was, in fact, in the process of providing self-rule and many of the Vietnamese were fighting alongside the French. Chinese and Russian interference in Indochina was brought to bear in order to put the whole region into the Communist camp.

While the noose around the French defenders gets tighter and tighter and eventually leads to the fall of the fort, the cause of the defenders is just and those of the aggressors... the enslavement of an entire people by the State. But at least when the dust settled Laos and Cambodia would remain free (sort of).

The equipment is almost all U.S., but that is not surprising considering the military assistance provided during and after WWII. However, the rendering of so much of the wording in English ("USSR" on a Soviet-made revolver and "French Occupation Forces" painted on a jeep in Germany) does kind of distract from the subject matter. Still, try finding an anti-communist movie today and see what kind of luck you have.

HASH(0x8ae8e8d0) out of 5 stars You Can't Help the Feeling of Deja-vu...and not because it's French history being told!!! 26 Dec. 2014
By Pvt. W. G. Kirby Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am only going to say that this DVD is worth watching. It's Hollywood's first telling of any story about Vietnam; this being the dramatic defeat of French forces trying to retain their colonial hold on "French Indo-China" in 1954. The film was made on the California backlot at Warner Brothers, but had alot of proper equipment used and intercut with newsreel and combat camera coverage of the actual siege of Dien Bein Phu. A few recognizable actirs here and there, and almost EVERY French actor available in Hollywood. ince the Foreign Legion was fighting, we also find heroic Legioneres with American, British, and German backgrounds too. Based on facts less that a year old in 1955, the story is pretty good...some really bad attempts at some humor, and after our own mess in SEA after theis event set us up for our own problems of the 60s and 70s; some of the stuff said then mocks what happened later. Movie is in B&W to better fit the available combat images. Amazon did the usual perfect job in shipping and handling...with some help by the USPS...let's not forget them!

By Heide - Published on Amazon.com

The movie title "Jump into Hell" can easily serve as a euphemism for "Dien Bien Phu - The Actual Beginning of the End of French Colonialism Worldwide." What the British experienced in India, the French had to learn the even harder and bloodier way: One cannot assume the role of head of household in a home that is not your own and expect to get away with taking everything that is not yours, to put it rather mildly.
The movie is, however, saved by the excellently portrayed heroism and gallantry of the French Armed Forces and their officer corps, including the French Foreign Legion, in this case characterized by the charismatic German-American actor Peter van Eyck. Director David Butler succeeded in "painting this picture" with only a small number of brilliant actors, making them stand out as a sterling example of military sacrifice for the ideals of such great French enlightenment philosophers as Voltaire and Rousseau.

This movie gave a very good portrayal of the people who fought this battle. I did not expect much , but I was really surprised by this movie. I would classify this movie as a sleeper.

A very interesting movie that showed the French side of the siege of Dien Bien Phu. It was a cold war propaganda piece. The action scenes were very good.
