Movie: Danger Close (2019) Vietnam War, 1966. Australia and New Zealand send troops to support the United States and South Vietnamese in their fight against the communist North. Soldiers are very young men, recruits and volunteers who have never been involved in a combat. On August 18th, members of Delta Company will face the true horror of a ruthless battle among the trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tân. They are barely a hundred. The enemy is a human wave ready to destroy them.

I don't at all dislike War films, but they're also not of a genre that is particularly close to my heart. Danger Close didn't do anything for me that changed that, but, if you're a fan, and are interested in the ever-elusive "Anything other than the Yanks in WWII/Vietnam or the Brits in WWI/WWII", you could do a lot worse than give Danger Close a chance, but if you're looking for strong characterisation, you could do better too. Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole.
