Movie reviews for Black Hawk Down
|GREAT war/action movie and being so by being based on a true story, makes it a bit scary.
The movie has a great cast, that does some over the top acting. Since it's based on real actions, I'd say the movie should first and foremost seem real and be believable, and luckily it is both.
Naturally the movies gives some what insight in the American war strategies back when they went into Somalia, but since I'm not much of history geek I can't say anything about historical accuracy, but it sure seems convincing and you get the notion that the American Army doesn't always know what it is doing.
