Rescue Dawn Christian Bale fuels the size zero debate
Plot The based-on-fact tale of German-American fighter pilot Dieter Dengler (Bale), who was shot down in Laos in the early stages of the Vietnam War, then incarcerated in a POW camp. There, he attempts to rally his listless comrades and stage an escape.
Verdict Herzog’s planted rather too firmly in his discomfort zone, but Bale once again confirms himself as one of our most intense, committed and watchable actors.
