Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan

Apparently this one premiered on August 8. in Australia.
It snuck under my radar, but is now on my to-watch list.

Just hired this one off youtube and enjoyed it for what it was. I am sure it was not as accurate as it could have been. They probably made it more dramatic than it actually was. But for what was sure to be a low budget australian film. I think it gets a pass. If nothing else it's made me curious about researching the battle.

I've considered watching that one too but haven't so far. Glad to hear it didn't suck at least. I need new War Movies to obsess over.  :bd:
