Pretty good film about a famous operation by the French Foreign Legion

9/10
Author: nicver from Mesa, AZ
12 September 2002

This film was made right after the French Foreign Legion proved its valor (once again) in a military operation in Congo.

The Legion saved hundreds of Europeans taken hostages by rebels and managed to drive them away after losing only 5 of its men.

The film is very low budget, but very accurate and most of the legionnaires on the screen were actual legionnaires involved in the fights. Very interesting for the ethnic variety of these guys.

It's really not Black Hawk Down. It's a simple and efficient film with a very straight story line, and it depicts the facts and only the facts, with a few composite characters among the civilians.

I would only recommend it if you want to learn about the even or about how the Legion operates.
