Watch Black Hawk Down (2001) Online
Pulsating Oscar-winning war drama based on a true incident. In 1993 a small, elite group of American troops, part of a UN peacekeeping force, entered Somalia's capital Mogadishu to capture the lieutenants of a local warlord. The operation was supposed to take 30 minutes; in fact it took many hours of desperate street-fighting, cost the lives of 18 Americans and more than 1,000 Somalis, and ended in failure. As a Jerry Bruckheimer production, the action is loud and relentless. But as a Ridley Scott film, its utterly compelling and brilliantly realised. It won Oscars for best editing and best sound.
