A relentless immersion in combat strikingly realized but none too pleasurable to sit through.

It would've been nice to get to know a few of the men we're meant to care about.

Whenever the battle stops for even a moment to focus on characters, just about every John Wayne war movie cliche imaginable takes over.
January 7, 2002
Take away its timely guise of patriotism, and it's a real horror show, more about murder than military prowess.

Action isn't enough to propel this blessed-with-fine-timing war adventure into anything more than a high-testosterone snoozer.

I imagine most people will find something to like in Black Hawk Down, but I don't know why they'd want to be bothered with a picture that puts the audience through so much to give so little.

O filme acaba se resumindo a uma longa seqüência envolvendo trocas de tiros, explosões e mortes, sem se preocupar com o lado humano da tragédia.

Although technically superb, this film left me exhausted, confused, and angry.

Deja mucho que desear y muestra como su director ha optado, conforme avanza en edad, en cambiar la calidad de la historia por un exceso de violencia injustificada.

A studied composition in flying debris, fleeing crowds, and detached limbs.

Like Mr. Scott's G.I. Jane but this time with an all-boy cast.

The Somalians feel like props, something to be plugged at a shooting gallery.
January 21, 2002
Whatever level of sympathy is evoked is not enough to counter balance the sheer resentment some of us might feel at this attempt to make commercial hay out of a huge military tragedy of our time.

It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

As with the real life operation, the movie was not very well thought out.

Has the pointless verisimilitude of an expensively rendered computer simulation.
September 10, 2002
One big shiny but empty bullet shell.

While the film succeeds as a visceral testament to all the servicemen who fought in Mogadishu, particularly the nineteen who lost their lives, Black Hawk Down is more punishing than anything else.
