This movie holds its intensity when a generals commands go horribly wrong, after two of their helicopters are shot down, leaving them in an outnumbered battle with the somalians.
This movie seems to be incredibly true to its story and is a great watch if you haven’t seen it already. Ridley Scott produces a fantastic picture here and everything about it is class from its awesome cast featuring, Ewan McGregor, Tom Hardy, William Fitchner, Orlando Bloom and many more big faces, to its immense sound mixing and editing.
The cinematography is grainy and what a war film should look like. And with the many camera cuts throughout the film it really helps to gather how fast these men most think and move especially when you’re life is on the line.
Not my favourite war movie but it is a great tribute to the 19 men who lost their lives in the failed raid back in 1993.
Solid movie would recommend 7/10
