Rescue Dawn (2006) – 3.5/5

Rescue Dawn (2006)

I liked this movie, but I was a bit disappointed given how great Werner Herzog is. I felt the movie didn’t have as dark of a feel as I expected. I didn’t feel the dread of the captors and the situation as I’m sure it was.

It was certainly harsh, don’t get me wrong, but I didn’t feel it as I have w/ other Herzog movies.

So I think it’s a really good movie, but my expectations were really high.
