About this movie

From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Hannibal) and renowned producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pearl Harbor, Armageddon) comes a gripping true story about bravery, camaraderie and the complex reality of war. Black Hawk Down stars an exceptional cast including Josh Hartnett (Pearl Harbor), Ewan McGregor (Moulin Rouge!), Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan), Eric Bana (Chopper), William Fichtner (The Perfect Storm), Ewen Bremner (Snatch) and Sam Shepard (All The Pretty Horses). In 1993, an elite group of American Rangers and Delta Force soldiers are sent to Somalia on a critical mission to capture a violent warlord whose corrupt regime has lead to the starvation of hundreds of thousands of Somalis. When the mission goes terribly wrong, the men find themselves outnumbered and literally fighting for their lives.

I've always loved this movie. Its realistic with only one flaw and that being one man played the part of actually 3 but it was the only thing. I've always had respect for any men and women who seved for this country. I'm proud to be the son of a US solder, and I'm proud to say that I wanna be one too (I'm still to young) and it's been that way for me for as long as I remember.

A classic. Some of the explosion effects are strange, but that's because we've been spoiled with CGI too long. My father has met several veterans of this incident and it is a very touching story to boot. Absolutely a must have for spare time
