The Siege of Jadotville

Back again with another film review. This time we are talking about The Siege of Jadotville. Directed by Richie Smyth(all of U2’s documentaries) and starring Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey series) this film follows the story of the first and only battle experience the Irish army had through the eyes of the small underprepared platoon that tried their hardest to repel enemy forces. This war film takes place in the congo in the 1960’s during an attempt to take over by a warlord and features lots of explosions, shootouts, and all those regular things you would expect from the genre. I do think it has an interesting story and great acting but at times was a bit slow. I would recommend it if your looking to fill a day or just a fan of the genre but other than that it was nothing special or new. I still found it interesting from a historical sense so I’ll give this one a 6/10. Up next is Robert Egger’s The Witch.
