Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Black Hawk Down makes that point without preachment, in precise and pitiless imagery. And for that reason alone it takes its place on the very short list of the unforgettable movies about war and its ineradicable and immeasurable costs. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Nov 8, 2011

Rotten: A relentless immersion in combat strikingly realized but none too pleasurable to sit through. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Nov 8, 2011

Fresh: A first-rate war movie that presents its subject so horrifyingly well that it doesn't need to probe or preach. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: I can think of no other instance when a country at war has presented on its movie theater screens such an excruciating account of battle, or such a sobering one. – Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 18, 2002

Only War Movie Better is Saving Private Ryan

I love this movie. It has a great cast to the movie and it is so accurate to the real event. Thet acually in some parts used real footage from the actuall event. This movie has good action, plot, and story. It is sad in parts but that makes the movie better. itunes why won't you let us have saving private ryan that is the greatest movie ever made.

Best war movie ever

In my opinion, this is simply THE best war movie ever made. It is full of action and the individual characters are incredible. I have watched it many times, and just can't help not watching it again whenever I it is on open TV. Pitty we can't buy it instead of rent it.
