"Danger Close" the movie
« on: August 11, 2019, 10:26:47 AM »
I saw "Danger Close" yesterday. Thoroughly enjoyed the movie.
The first Landy I saw in it was a Gunbuggy. There were quite a few scenes with S2a Landrovers, APCs and Inters.
Some in the audience got quite emotional so it must have been a good movie
It didn't follow the events as accurately as I have read.

This movie is a long time coming and I thought they did a great job. I'll be adding it to my collection of Australian flicks when it comes out on bluray.

Anyone else seen it?

Yep.
It's not a docco. It's a drama based on real events.
Bear in mind, veterans from those events had an advisory role on the project. Veterans have seen the film and given it the nod of approval.
It's a bloody good flick. There were many in the cinema I was in that appeared to be of the age that they may have been there at the time. They were quite emotional.

If you want to see a doco, might I recommend the one narrated by Sam Worthington. I watched it on youtube.

Yep.
Sad, that.

One less probably makes mine worth more.
