Black Hawk Down was one of those movies which i watched repeatedly from time to time and yesterday night was no different for me,i watched it again.Anyone who is a fond of action genre/war genre would definitely keep Black Hawk Down in his/her all time favorite movies list.This Oscar winning movie is a masterpiece made by none other than the maestro Ridley Scott,it is certainly one of his best creations and is successful in grasping the viewer's mind by giving him/her a reel life experience which happens to be inspired from real events.I felt nostalgic watching this movie which was made way back in 2001,it's been 13 years since this movie was made and it makes you wonder how do the cast of black hawk down look now.I am certain you will find it shocking when you realize that there were many well known actors in this movie who were not well known back then.
