There is a sub-genre of the military/war category of movies that I have identified.

I call it 'small number of good white people killing lots of bad Africans'. The genre started with Zulu Dawn (South Africa), it also includes Black Hawk Down (Somalia) and 13 hours (Libya). Adding to the list we now have 15 Minutes of War, also set in Somalia. I think the Somalis spotted the trend and took to seaborne piracy instead.

Basic premise underlying all these films (apart from the first one) is that thousands of Africans wildly firing modern weapons set on auto are no match for cool and calm white people who take their time to aim and then fire either short bursts or even just single shots. In the first one the Africans only had bows and arrows (If I recall correctly).

Even more depressingly for the Africans in this movie they are having their behinds whupped by the French.

The shame.

In French with English subtitles.

All movies mentioned in this review are ok for family viewing. Though it has been some time since I saw Zulu Dawn.

The House Managers make near-fools of themselves by whining before the Senate on how Trump is so abusive and that is why they do not need any evidence of a crime.

l am also watching this because l cannot trust the nutwork news. l watch the same segment as they do and then they comment on things that never were said.

"Gunfight at the O.K. Corral"

Last saw it with my father almost 24 years ago.

Romanticized bang-bang movie.

Being a movie, a 30 second gunfight last 5+ minutes.

Mabye movies bullets travel slower?

Can't remember seeing this before, but I am sure I must have. Anyway, I've been a Monty supporter all my life but presented like this you get the urge to take Patton's side.

No women, so ok from that point of view, but Patton does cuss like a trooper, so some people may find that offensive.

Watch it and you'll see why Trumpism did not come out of the blue, the sentiments were always there.
