Movie Info

This made-for-television drama first aired on NBC and was made shortly after the tragic stand-off in Waco, Texas when a conflict between the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and a group of cultist led by charismatic leader and self-proclaimed messiah David Koresh turned into a bloody battle that left the believers' compound burned and many dead. Soon after the dust settled, investigations revealed that the bloodshed may have been unnecessary. Filmed on location, near Tulsa, Oklahoma, the film recounts events before, during and after the catastrophe. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for In The Line Of Duty: Ambush In Waco

All Critics (1)

"Ambush in Waco" borderlines on being pro-"law enforcement" propaganda but for the most part it's a compelling couple of hours of Television giving you a little more insight into one of today's worst tragedies. Tim Daly (TV's Wings) is excellent as Koresh
