Leave No Man Behind

Black Hawk Down drops you into a crowded marketplace in the heart of Mogadishu, Somalia with the U.S. Special Forces-and puts you in the middle of the most intense firefight American soldiers have fought since the Vietnam War. Late in the afternoon of Sunday, October 3, 1993, the soldiers of Task Force Ranger were sent on a mission to capture two top lieutenants of a renegade warlord and return to base. It was supposed to take them about an hour. Instead, they were pinned down through a long and terrible night in a hostile city, locked in a desperate struggle to kill or be killed. When the unit was finally rescued the following morning, eighteen American soldiers were dead and dozens more badly injured. The Somali toll was far worse: more than five hundred killed and over a thousand wounded.

One of the best war movies around - Exceptional cinematography. Excellent acting.

Very watchable if only for the constant action. Toward the end it becomes overly sentimental and reverts to the propaganda that each soldier is fighting for the man beside him and nothing more. However... Read more

Excellent action film but all the goodies look alike with or without helmets so there is little chance of character interest.

Brilliant cinematography particularly if you like helicopters - watch the extras for a deeper insight into this true story.

I enjoyed the show. Pure escapism. Not having been in one I do not think War as it is can be captured on celluloid but movies are about escapism and this one works. I would watch it again but not for a year or so.....

Typical war movie with a great star-studded cast :P

Thought Id hate it, but it's a pretty solid effort by a tight cast who build a tense, consistent look & feel. Inevitable jingoism but this IS Scott, who can never take his hand off it for long. Not bad.
