From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Hannibal) and renowned producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pearl Harbor, Armageddon) comes a gripping true story about bravery, camaradarie and the complex reality of war. Black Hawk Down stars an exceptional cast including Josh Hartnett (Pearl Harbor), Ewan McGregor (Moulin Rouge!), Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan), Eric Bana (Chopper), William Fichtner (The Perfect Storm), Ewen Bremner (Snatch) and Sam Shepard (All The Pretty Horses). In 1993, an elite group of American Rangers and Delta Force soldiers are sent to Somalia on a critical mission to capture a violent warlord whose corrupt regime has led to the starvation of hundreds of thousands of Somalis. When the mission goes terribly wrong, the men find themselves outnumbered and literally fighting for their lives.

On October 3, 1993, Army Rangers and members of the elite Delta Force participated in a covert operation in Mogadishu, Somalia that went horribly wrong. Sent to abduct two lieutenants of a vicious Somali warlord, the soldiers found themselves surrounded by hostile militia. Two Black Hawk helicopters were shot down and many men lost their lives. Mark Bowden of the Philadelphia Inquirer told the story of the battle in his exhaustively researched, critically acclaimed book, Black Hawk Down, and filmmaker Ridley Scott (Gladiator) and screenwriter Ken Nolan have done an amazing job of bringing the dramatic story to the screen. Like Bowden's book, the film does not thoroughly examine the context of the conflict, but gives a detailed and intense blow-by-blow account of the fighting. The outstanding ensemble cast includes Josh Hartnett as a competent but nervous Ranger sergeant leading his first mission, Ewan McGregor as a desk jockey who excels when sent into combat, Eric Bana (The Incredible Hulk) as a cocky and enigmatic Delta, and Ron Eldard as a downed Black Hawk pilot. The violence of the film is brutal and nearly constant. Scott unflinchingly captures the chaos and mayhem of battle with tremendous visual finesse.

Home cinema tester

Great war movie,action,actors,directing of Ridley Scott is top notch!!Disc is 50gb wich allowed place film with high bit rate and refference High definition picture and "uncompressed" PCM 5.1 sound it means it's studio grade sound quality with details you are missing with Dolby Digital.Sound is actually better than it was run in cinemas I highly recommend this disc to war movie fans and those who new or own Home theatre with bluray!!!

Less Usa advertisement and histrionics

This film like a face down Uncle Sam with himself sometimes.Recommandable on Blu-Ray for effects and sound.

Top Title

This has to be in my top 5 war films ever. It's shot different from most of the others and gives you a great idea of being in the heat of the action especially if you have a good sound system. I have both dvd's as i couldnt resist buying it again at this price when i started my blu-ray collection. Was it worth it ? well if you like the movie you will think so.
