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.
