Black Hawk Down (2001) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Rewatching Black Hawk Down it still remains a truly stand out Ridley Scott movie.  It’s a film that combines an amazing cast (Piven! Hartnett! Bloom! McGreggor! Fichtner! Sizemore! Bana!) with a punishing narrative, loud bloody war action and a heart pounding true story of heroism. It’s over the top, in your face and brutal.  But it also tells one hell of a story.  Beautifully shot, expertly edited… modern war movies don’t get much better than this.

Best Bit:Little Birds & Mini Guns!
