Black Hawk Down (2001)
Director – Ridley Scott
Stars – Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor, Tom Sizemore and Eric Bana
I go back and forth with Ridley Scott, I love some of his work and some, not so much. Black Hawk Down falls into his films I don’t really care for. I’m not the biggest fan of war films to start with and this one didn’t do anything that really blew me away. It looks great and the action scenes are impressive but with an overcrowded cast, I never connected to anyone. As good as the action scenes are, by the end of the film I was more than happy to never see a war scene again. Scott has made worse films but Black Hawk Down isn’t one of my favorites of his.
