rescue dawn

SPOILER ALERT! .. fan-ta-stic. first you have a prison thriller filled with well-paced tension and suspense, then you have about fifteen minutes of adrenalin fueled thumping heart beats, then a totally convincing desperate flee/story of friendship in desperation.

christian bale and steve zahn are both brilliant. also special credit to jeremy davies who's damaged, institutionalised prisoner is completely convincing.
really, a brilliant film that doesn't fall into the typical blind patriotism of so many others.

if you get a chance, check out the deleted scenes, they are also excellent.

This was a film that I had no prior knowledge of, seen know trailers and had no idea what to expect.

It completely blew me away! And it was the first film we watched on our new surround sound system!
