Rescue Fraud?

Originally, I was looking forward to seeing the movie Rescue Dawn. I mean, it combines a real-life POW drama with Christian "Batman" Bale. What could go wrong with that?

Apparently, quite a bit. It would appear that the filmmakers have strayed very far from the real events. The net effect is that the main protagonist, Dieter Dengler, is elevated to demi-god status, while the other equally-brave men who tried to flee with Dengler are shamefully denigrated.

How am I making my voice heard to the purveyors of this historical farce? I'm not going to see this charade of a a movie. Director Werner Herzog can take my nine bucks and shove it up his krauty ass.
