The action is in your face and fierce and the actors deliver believable performances that make their off screen personas pretty much indistinguishable. One of the most brutal and memorable war films ever made.

The Smart ass Eric Bana and the calm cool and collective Josh Hartnett head this all star casted movie. Filmed during the high point of the struggle in Somalia this war movie uses new and inventive ways to portray our military in action. This was the best war movie to follow-up to Saving Private Ryan although it is nowhere near the level of that movie. I was emotionally drawn to the struggle that was going on because my grandfather served in the military. Ewan Mcgregor also did a great job in this movie as the coffee server to combat ready soldier. All in All I would recommend this film

War is hell and Black Hawk Down doesn't sugarcoat it. Real soldiers, real danger, real sacrifice. One of the best modern war movies - it took me way too long to finally watch this one.

"Black Hawk Down" by Yojimbo

An American Black Hawk helicopter is shot down during a raid on a Somali warlord in Mogadishu leading to a desperate rescue mission faced with overwhelming opposition. In Black Hawk Down, Ridley Scott has created one of the most realistic war movies ever made. You really feel like you're in the thick of an urban warzone and the excellent ensemble cast make for very believable protagonists. It's usually a fine line between respect for the bravery of the fighting man and macho, gung ho bullshit, but Scott stays on the right side by focussing on the loyalty between comrades fighting for each others lives rather than the usual "God And Country" crap that many war films fall back on. It laso concentrates on the fact that despite what the propaganda machine may have us believe, modern warfare i...

Black Hawk Down review

A mission to capture Omar Salad Elmi and Abdi Hassan Awale Qeybdiid went haywire when 2 Black Hawk helicopters were gun downed. Cast includes Eric Bana (as the tough and skilled SFC Norm "Hoot" Hooten), Tom Sizemore (as the confident LTC Danny McKnight), Josh Hartnett (as the newly appointed Chalk Leader SSG Matt Eversmann) and many more. The drama, action and cinematography was believable. Only qualms I had were the soundtrack, lack of better character development, a few dragging scenes irrelevant to the story, historical inaccuracies (actual life in Somalia, Malaysian/Pakistani troops aided in the battle) and depiction of Somali people. Black Hawk Down is a good war film worth your time especially those who enjoy true to life films such as this critic.
