The unforgotten war that my Paw Pal fought in.
9 July 2007 | by fifercaniacSee all my reviews

The Nest 1999 This is a short action war film about the unforgotten war Korean War that my Paw Pal fought in. A company of soldiers trapped in a trench nothing more than to protect them from enemy sniper near a Nest. Soldiers go out to The Nest to help their fallen comrades but if they go out there they are basically in no return back to their lines. With a all star independent cast and the cast from Wicked Spring my favorite movie with my favorite actor DJ Perry. This is the film that helped financing their Epic Civil War movie "Wicked Spring" 2003. Actors Terry Jernigan DJ Perry, Mark Lacy, and Brian Merrick and also introducing Nathan Blackburn. I think that Mark Lacy and DJ Perry were the best actors in the film. Their performances on the screen prove that they can act and know how to do this in the business for film making and that they can be the top actors in the Independent field. I totally recommend this film for Independent fans and any history buff of all wars.
