One of those movies you should see, but only once. The picture plays out like a sort of documentary and action movie at the same time. There are over a dozen main characters spread over 3 different military branches which can really confuse the viewer and wreaks absolute havoc with any form of character development. The action scenes are well filmed but can get extremely repetitive. As I said, only need to watch it once.

Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down recreates the battle of Mogadishu in Somalia, a powerful vision of urban warfare and a true event that changed U.S. policy for the better part of a decade. Many actual soldiers are collapsed into easier to follow characters, and the movie's made changes here and there, but it's essentially what happened. And it's exhausting, which I guess is the point. These soldiers were under unrelenting fire for 18 hours on a mission that should have taken a half hour. Ridley Scott says in the extras that he wanted to recreate the experience, not load the film with back story. He's certainly managed that, and there's no question his visual style fills every frame with something interesting.

Impacting even if it's a little long, feels realistic and totally full-on. Loved the color-correction.

Good movie but a lot of it is just constant shooting. Great first hour introducing all the characters and the setting. Get's a little more interesting towards the end.

You will see a lot of famous faces and that can be a little distracting, although there's no way they could have known that when making the film!

Probably not going to rush to re-watch this, and I would only recommend to war film fans.

Take away the weapons and the horrific caricature of Somalians as a monstrous, inhuman swarm would have worked equally well in 28 Days Later. Kept expecting Raimi and writers to imply they were all cannibals.

sooooo boring, this movie needed characters and plot development. It's a tragic story, I agree, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.

Ridley Scott's urban warfare epic based on real events in 90's Somalia. Unrelenting & refreshingly anti-gung-ho. 8/10.
