True story of Irish UN peace-keepers embroiled in a civil war in Africa in 1961Reviewed byjimothy1-439-660258Vote: 10/10

Based on true events, this film is a shock to the system because what it reveals had been meticulously covered up for over 40 years. The film highlights one of the most important roles ever played by the Irish Defence Forces as United Nations peace keepers. All the more astonishing given the "battle virginity and inexperience of the Irish troops, the menacing threat and overwhelming numbers of hardened ex-Forign Legion French and African mercenaries there to defend the interests of the powerful international mining companies. Superbly acted by a virtually unknown cast, the tension mounts from the moment the troops find themselves billeted in the uranium rich mining Katanga outpost of Jadotville, in the province of Kinshasa in the southern rump of the fledgling Republic of The Congo.

In the background the Cold War is at its most dangerous as the Western, Eastern political blocs posture between the emerging United Nations trying to establish its credibility on the international stage. The civil war in this strategically important supplier to the nuclear armaments race is at its height, and an Irish diplomat Conor Cruise O'Brien (Mark Strong) is sent to Katanga to handle the situation on behalf of the UN. It is impossible to fathom how the Irish commandant (Jamie Dornan) in charge on the ground can be expected to keep the peace and hold the area assigned to the poorly equipped Irish troops. While tension mounts locally, high stakes and political posturing take place in the background stretching the ubiquitous tension even further. I'm still pinching myself with the realisation that all this happened within my lifetime and never knew a thing about it until viewing this spell-binding, tension filled action drama.This massively impacting film would be well worth seeing again , if only to focus next time on the drama itself without the distraction or initial shock of the unfolding historical events portrayed.

Surprisingly good story from an unknown engagementReviewed bydolphinfishVote: 7/10

One of the problems with war movies is that they tend to attract reviews from military anoraks, all of whom have biases in favour of one or other army/force/grouping. "Yeah, the SAS would make mincemeat of them", or "they wouldn't last three minutes against the Navy Seals", or whatever. Scroll through the reviews of this movie and you'll find similar here. A certain amount of realism is important, but just how realistic were "great" war movies of the past, particularly the British war movies from WWII?

In reality, very few western soldiers ever fire a shot in anger, so in point of fact, stories like this, where peacetime soldiers are thrust into an actual firefight carry their own realism. Some here have argued the unlikelihood of a five day fire fight where hundreds of the enemy are killed and none of the defenders. Yet, that IS exactly what happened at Jadotville, with estimates of enemy losses ranging from three hundred to one thousand. The broad sweep of the story is true.

With that in mind, the only question is, is the action believable? The answer is, yes, it is. It's amazingly well done on what must have been a tiny (by Hollywood standards) budget. Commandant (Major) Quinlan leads a small troop of Irish UN peacekeepers holding a small outpost in Katanga. After the UN forces assault the Katangan rebels under the orders of Connor Cruise O'Brien (Mark Strong), the UN leader on the ground, the mercenary forces retaliate by attacking the isolated Jadotville outpost. There follows a five day siege in which the Irish defend their position to the last bullet while being left unenforced and unsupplied by their superiors.

The machinations of the UN are well covered, and the oily Connor Cruise O'Brien -- a real person who is not fondly remembered in Ireland -- is portrayed well by Mark Strong, who is a better actor than he is often given credit for, although I would have liked a little more on what happened after Commandant Quinlan arrived home and he had to put up with the insinuations of career soldiers who had never heard a gunshot. Ignore the begrudgers. This may not be a great movie, but it is a good one telling a more or less true but almost forgotten story.

An Excellent War DramaReviewed bypmcveigh-11563Vote: 9/10

An excellent war drama about a little known episode involving UN Peace Keepers from the Irish Defense Forces. The film is excellent on many levels including acting, direction and location. The combat action is on par or better than in any of the Hollywood War films. The unknown cast is superb as is the filming. One of the very best Netflix films - not to be missed.
