SUN­DAY BLACK HAWK DOWN

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

9PM, 7MATE Based on the best­selling book by Mark Bow­den, this is a 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 the most strik­ing, if not re­veal­ing, por­trait of mod­ern war­fare ever filmed. Stars Josh Hart­nett, Ewan McGre­gor, Tom Size­more and Eric Bana.
