Review
October 1993, Mogadishu, Somalia and a force of elite American troops, under the banner of the UN, are sent into the city to abduct a warlord's henchmen. But the carefully laid plan quickly goes belly up and the soldiers are left fighting for their lives with little support and vastly out numbered. Black Hawk Down is a relentless slab of action and though based on true events, no attempt is made to explain the why or the wherefore beyond "badman" versus "goodman" and heroic stereotypes abound. A very, very slick action movie, but quite long for something that doesn't do anything else.
