Guns at Batasi ★★½ 1964

Attenborough plays a tough British Sergeant Major stationed in Africa during the anticolonial 1960s. Ultimately the regiment is threatened by rebel Africans. Fine performances make this rather predictable film watchable. 103m/B VHS, DVD . GB Richard Attenborough, Jack Hawkins, Mia Farrow, Flora Robson, John Leyton; D: John Guillermin; M: John Addison.
