Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Aaron Eckhart are Caught in an Ambush
It looks like Jonathan Rhys Meyers is everywhere lately, I no sooner post a preview of his horror in the hospital flick Disquiet than word of the Vietnam War set action film Ambush arrives in my mail. This one sounds like it’s centred around the so-called “Tunnel Rats” who took the war to the Vietcong in the network tunnels they dug to move around without being spotted by American forces.
That’s at least something different, the only film I can think of to cover that ground was Tunnel Rats by, of all people, Uwe Boll. I’m going to guess this has to be better than that, though I’m not expecting another Apocalypse Now I’ll happily take another Siege of Firebase Gloria. We’ll find out when Saban Films releases it on February 24.
Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) and Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Vikings) star in this intense, gritty and action-packed Vietnam War epic. When a small outpost is ambushed, a US Army squad must take the battle below ground on a high-stakes mission in a new type of warfare the likes of which they have never seen.
