Seige of Jadotville

Good, but not great, war flick about Irish peacekeepers fighting merc led Congolese separatists during the 1960's Congo crisis. Covers the battle (there is only one), the politics, and the coverup. It presents the politics as being messy, but doesn't go into many details. The battle scenes were well done. Worth watching. It's streaming on Netflix.

I watched it a few weeks back, too. Thought roughly the same as you 'was ok enough'.
