Movie Review - Rescue Dawn

This is a story about an air force pilot that was shot over Laos before the Vietnam war really broke out. He was captured and then imprisoned, finding the strength to escape and trudge through the jungle until he was rescued. 
This movie does a great job of showing the immensity of the jungle and how over powering it must have been to try and make it through that. It also stays away from the torture aspects that happened, but gives an interesting look into the madness that would overpower you after being held for any length of time in those conditions. 
Overall it is a little slow, but well worth the watch.
