If you want lots of action in a war movie, you will love this movie because 80% of it is WAR! Definitely is in my top 5 of the best movies. Apart from all the action, this true story is shocking and sad, this guys should have had more recognition at the time. The phrase "Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die" fits perfectly in this movie.

The Irish war film based on the book of the same name, which was originally inspired by the real battle of the Irish army during the UN's peacekeeping mission in the central Africa. Directed by a first timer and a well done job. I have seen lots of Irish More

Wow, it has the dude from Fifty Shades in it and he's actually acting.

It's honestly not a bad little film and that is saying a lot given that it has a small little budget doesn't it?

They should really call it "Siege of Courage" because really it's about valor and nothing more, but it's about More
