It's just chaotic.

What this film accomplished was show some 100 brave Army Rangers and elite Delta Force soldiers in action surrounded by about 5,000 heavily armed Somalis...
February 3, 2002
Director Ridley Scott and his team have recreated combat as realistically as any film ever.

Incredible and horrifying to look at, but it stops short of mining the real-world situation in Somalia for any meaning.
January 31, 2002
beautiful and harrowing, but, curiously, does not resonate
January 30, 2002
It's a heroic movie about an unheroic moment in American history.
January 29, 2002
This is a movie that understands the American fighting man.

One of the best depictions of the outright lunacy inherent to battle I have ever seen.
January 27, 2002
a raw war movie with little aim other than its obsessive urge to put you in the moment
January 27, 2002
Like one of the soldiers, we are plunked right into the middle of battle and it's all we can do is to find a way out of the maze
January 26, 2002
Dramatically taught, crisply shot and vibrantly visualized, this film deserves a place in the war film pantheon.

Black Hawk Down, boasting the most authentic depiction of contemporary warfare ever filmed, belongs in a time capsule. It's a classic.
January 24, 2002
[D]efinitely worth seeing for those amazing battle sequences.
January 22, 2002
Judging the film on what it is, rather than what it is not, I'd have to say this is one of the best films of 2001, and the best war movie since "Saving Private Ryan."
January 22, 2002
In Gladiator and Hannibal, Ridley Scott gave us shrewd, witty entertainments; this is macho obtuse posturing, puffed up with ersatz valour.
January 22, 2002
The next worst thing to being there. That's how real it feels.
January 22, 2002
It represents a particularly limiting application of hard-bitten manly values to experiences that can't help but transcend them.
January 21, 2002
A non-stop buffet of patriotic carnage with enough enemy carcasses to plug a landfill.
January 21, 2002
One of Scott's most accomplished pieces of direction.
