Waco: The Rules of Engagement

"Weak"

Waco: The Rules of Engagement Review


For someone who lived 60 miles away from Waco during the time the whole Koresh thing went down, this is a pretty tepid and dry treatment of the incident, heavily biased toward the Branch Davidians, who kept an arsenal that would keep Kosovo alive another year inside a compound in rural Texas. Interesting for documentarians and conspiracy theorists, probably too dry and ultimately too pedantic for everyone else. Then again, as history has since shown, maybe all those conspiracy hounds had a point. Too bad it wasn't presented in a more interesting and forceful fashion.
