Rescue Dawn


Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM)

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) Director Werner Herzog delves into historical
drama with this real-life story of U.S. fighter pilot Dieter Dengler, a
German-American shot down and captured in Laos during the Vietnam War.
Dieter is played by actor Christian Bale, who has wowed audiences in
turns in Batman Begins and American Psycho. Dengler organizes an escape
for a small band of POWs, including himself. Herzog has turned out a
quality film, perhaps his most commercially viable one to date. This
epic picture traces one man’s odyssey, from pursuing his dream to
surviving in unbearable conditions and beyond. – forrest green III
