Black Hawk Down
I'm not a huge fan of war films and wasn't particularly looking forward to this one, but it was a pleasant surprise in the end!
Not much of a script or particularly good acting but the directing and the action is extremely intense. Ridley Scott does a fantastic job of portraying the sheer horror of war in such a gritty and atmospheric way that you can't help but feel for the characters.
It even has moments of humour just to stop yourself from going out and topping yourself after.
An excellent film and well worth a watch, even for non 'army' fans I'm off to play soldiers in the backgarden hacka hacka hacka
