Movie Review: Rescue Dawn

Christian Bale stars as a POW, who's jet was shot down over Laos, during the Vietnam war era. Despite the acclaim by critics, I thought this movie was only okay. There are good performances however, by Steve Zahn, Jeremy Davies, and Bale himself. My problem with this film, is that it felt like it was filmed in the 70's (which may be good or bad depending on how you look at it). I also felt the visual effects were from the 70's, probably due to it's small budget. Also, there were times where it could have picked the pace up a little bit.
2.5 out of 5
