BLACK HAWK DOWN


I'm not a fan of war movies usually,but when i sat down to watch BLACK HAWK DOWN,i couldn't turn it off.Here's a war movie which doesn't sugar coat.There is no crappy dialogue,no soppy love story tie ins,just the real deal,brutal battle scenes,the gruesome reality of war.Black Hawk Down is based on a true story,the bloody battle at Somalia and it leaves one drained.Its confronting,and exposes war in its true light-there's nothing glamorous to see.In two hours and a bit the viewer is able to imagine being there at the horrible battleground,and suffering like the soldiers did.It really makes you appreciate how lucky we are to be in a free country,relatively peaceful,and not having our lives threatened every second of the day.Everything about BHD is right; the setting of the film,the Somalians,the American soldiers going through hell,the brutality,the battle,the fatalities.Not for the faint hearted,or weak stomached,but a truly powerful,compelling motion picture.


Ridley Scott takes the viewer on an imaginative journey through Black Hawk Down and appeals to our emotions.A brutal,yet bearable war film.

same as saving private ryan but saving private ryan is very very gruesome sometimes you might have to turn away for a certain part
