Clear and present danger when the rangers get L ambushed at the river valley and bridge

+1 on Tears.

Not a movie, but one of the season finale's for the Unit had a great ambush response scene

This scene was pretty entertaining:

I wish someday Hollywood would make a realistic movie about small unit jungle patrolling in Vietnam (not the line doggies in large infantry sweeps - I'm talking about U.S. Army LRRP or Marine Force Recon teams).

It won't happen, of course, because the market demographics are not there for it to be profitable as movie. They would have to tack on some utterly asinine romantic subplot to try and attract some female viewers, and the whole thing would go to hell from there.

But still, I can wish.

It could be done. Black Hawk Down was very well done.

True.

Did you see 84 Charlie Mopic? Low budget, 1st-person documentary style movie, but basically what you described.

Yes, that was an excellent movie.

That's pretty close to what I'm talking about, but with a higher budget.

and I think Micheal Colllins was the movie with the ambush scene from the hills onto the convoy? I remember that being entertaining.

The Professionals:

- Maybe they're just passing.

- If so, they'll ride in single file. The leader in front, and they'll palaver. If it's trouble, they'll come as a group. No one in front. If the leader takes his hat off and passes it across to cover his gun...let go, fast.
