Aro Recommended Black Hawk Down


USA 2001, 144 minutes
Dir. Ridley Scott
Rating: [R]
Genres: Action/Adventure / War

Topics: Gung-ho.


Aroview: Intense, eardrum-battering re-enactment of a street-battle during the US campaign in Mogadishu, Somalia in 1993, painting the bloody chaos of war in graphic, technically-inspired detail.

Don’t expect political insight, this is firmly a ‘trench-drama’ of failed leadership from the generals and muted heroics by the ground-troops, as a mission to seize two key enemies goes awry with the downing of a ‘Black Hawk’ attack-helicopter by the militant Somalians. Sam Shepard commands operations, Ewan McGregor, Josh Hartnett, Eric Bana and Tom Sizemore take the bullets.
