WACO will be the first narrative feature film to explore the events of the ATF raid on Mt. Carmel, Texas, the 51-day siege that followed, and the devastating compound fire that resulted in the deaths of 81 civilians.
While the movie may not have the facts right, it tells the story pretty much the way the agents say it happened.
As a movie about what happened in 93 in Waco, this one is fairly well-made and entertaining enough to watch. It is one-sided in favor of the government which is fair, considering that they deserve their say also. We have a saying that " if it smells like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck, it probably is a duck ". It looks like agents meant to burn down the church and kill the occupants to punish them for the deaths of the BATF agents. I'm inclined to believe that contrary to any number of government "fact-finding" quest that seem to point to the opposite.
