Visually beautiful, but not for everyone

This movie is loosely based on real events of an air pilot's capture, life in a POW camp, and a daring prison break with his fellow american prisoners.

If you know Herzog, you'll quickly notice his very sparse use of music, very slow-paced c... read more

Werner Herzog's passion and enthusiasm for Dieter Dengler's remarkable story make Rescue Dawn stand-out amongst the best of a long tradition of p.o.w. films, a genre one could be forgiven for thinking had taken its last breath. A fascinating study of the strength of human will, grit and determination. I haven't seen Bale this good since The Machinist. I still prefer 'Little Dieter Needs To Fly' bu... read more

My movie year 2017 (682 movies items)

"18.9. (DVD) Jostain syystä luulin loppuun saakka tämän olevan jonkinlainen Vietnam-parodia (jolle jopa nauroin), mutta takakannen ja IMDb:n mukaan kyse on elämää suuremmasta sankaritarinasta. En tosiaan taida tietää mistään mitään. Maisemien kuvaus ja kaunis musiikki ovat tyypillisiä Herzogille, joka ei onneksi sitten jättänyt elokuvaa ensimmäisen leikkauksen kolmeen tuntiin."

" POW survival movie inspired upon true events which make this a compelling drama. Extreme weight loss from many of the actors who definitely take their roles seriously with Christian Bale doing a strong performance eating even live worms, but it is Steve Zahn who register most emotionally with me as he show strong dramatic range as I found Bale being a little too all-knowing and arrogant at times. Sad that he is usually typecast as a comedic sidekick, but making one of the prisoners a kind-of vi"
