| How Close? - Danger Close
Very enjoyable. It stuck very close to the historical events and the realism of battle.

There isn't a great deal of character development before the action starts, which makes it more difficult to recognise them as the story unfolds, but I knew that was going to be the case though and paid particular attention to each character as they were introduced. That made things slightly easier.

I also enjoyed the end credits, with the song 'I was only 19' by Redgum, being played over the top of the photos of the real people and actors who played them. Poor bastids were all only aged between 19 and 22.

Comparing this to other movies about the Vietnam war, I would say it's up there with Kokoda, The Boys From Company C and even Hamburger Hill.

My only gripe is the title. IMHO it should have been called either Danger Close (a reference to how close the artillery shells needed to be) or The Battle of Long Tan. Not both.
