SATUR­DAY BLACK HAWK DOWN

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

10.30PM, SEVEN Based on the best-sell­ing book by Mark Bow­den. A stud­ied, sober­ing and numb­ingly no-holds-barred ac­count of the bat­tle of Mo­gadishu, a 1993 blood­bath in So­ma­lia that be­came Amer­ica’s worst skir­mish since Viet­nam. Di­rec­tor Ridley Scott ( Glad­i­a­tor) pares back story, char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment and moral right­eous­ness to their bare es­sen­tials, re­sult­ing in a strik­ing por­trait of mod­ern war­fare.
