Black Hawk Down Reviews
January 23, 2015
Black Hawk Down is a great military film that really shows what war is like. The acting is great, and the action is outstanding to watch which I never see a movie film a really long battle sequence. It really seems like Ridley Scott knows what he's doing with this movie, and really made it well-made. There's some intense moments, while being a little cheeky in humor which are well done. The character development, however, is not written well and it just seem like they didn't do much of it. It can also get a little boring for me, but I kept interest in Black Hawk Down, and it stands out from other military films.

Another patriotic movie showing the sacrifices our military and their families make on our behalf 24/7. By taking the fight to them it keeps them away from us. Too bad when the politics gets involved it creates more problems. This movie centered on one of our Sigma Chi fraternity brothers.

Although the story forgot to mention Malaysia Army involvement in saving their ass but it is still one of the best war movie I've ever seen.

In its genre: impressive with its brilliant helicopter scenes and explosions. lots of them. For the rest; mad, insane and disturbingly crazy. Not sure how well it represents the reality at the events but no words really can be found. Insane, use insane. Who profits? The gun dealers! Nobody else. everyone else got the short stick in the draw!

Best battle scenes I have ever seen. Gritty, chaotic, and intense.

Likely requires a second viewing to better establish everyone's role

There's just something about the scene with the miniguns blasting all those guys on the roof that gives me goosebumps everytime. Don't ask me why... Oh and Tom Hardy?

Black Hawk Down's compelling story and performances are overshadowed by its nonexistent character development and overemphasis on violence.

Great action packed film that pulls you in from the start.

its powerful the view of men trying to defend a black hawk to save the lives of the men inside the aircraft

30 minutes of solid dialogue surrounded by a bunch of bullshit. Maybe it's aged and I'm being too subjective, since this movie is ripped off by every war video game and movie we see, from Lone Survivor to Call of Duty, and we're too overexposed to this same shit.

Very action packed. Pretty predictable but honestly it is a fun movie to watch. The characters don't really tug at your heart strings like in some other movies. A lot of the death scenes had me not really caring about the character who died. But this was fast paced and action packed.

Black Hawk Down is more likely a showcase of all young male actors doing a Ridley Scott war film based on true events. Ridley Scott does a good job with its cinematography on this one. Though i felt that story telling is out of the line, less connection with its characters and focuses more on the battlefield. Dialogue is lousy at times. Action scenes are so fast paced that will make you're eyes bleed out with different camera angles here and there, bullets, explosions, dust are blowing around, its a mess. But in the end, it leaves a trademark that action packed video games makes this as an inspiration.

This film moves like the space shuttle used to at maximum dynamic pressure, namaly - relentlessly.

A sobering depiction of modern combat, the imagery is pretty harsh. Despite the actions of our servicemen I'm not sure what we learned from this ordeal, it all seemed very needless. Also, a lot of characters, but not much time on any one of them.

A very fantastic depiction of the truths of war. Definitely a good point of description for the true brutality of conflict.
