Rated NR

A great movie, if not a great "film," Black Hawk Down tells the mostly true story of 100 American troops who were trapped behind enemy lines and surrounded by thousands of armed militia men during a botched raid in Somalia in the mid 1990s. Director Ridley Scott is in top form, and he's well complemented by an impeccable cast, including standouts William Fitchner and Ewan MacGregor. The music, by Hans Zimmer (who scored Thin Red Line), fits in perfectly, and the cinematography by Slavomir Idziak is astounding. It's a perfectly paced flick that will make 144 minutes vanish like Al Gore's political career.
