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.
Rotten: A relentless immersion in combat strikingly realized but none too pleasurable to sit through.
Fresh: A first-rate war movie that presents its subject so horrifyingly well that it doesn't need to probe or preach.
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.

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.
