From acclaimed director Ridley Scott and renowned producer Jerry
Bruckheimer, based on actual events, "Black Hawk Down" is the heroic
account of a group of elite U.S. soldiers sent into Mogadishu,
Somalia, in 1993 as part of a U.N. peacekeeping operation. Their
mission: to capture several top lieutenants of the Somali warlord,
Mohamed Farrah Aidid, as part of a strategy to quell the civil war and
famine that is ravaging the country.
Young Rangers and veteran Delta Force soldiers fight side by side
against overwhelming odds. For 18 harrowing hours, they remain trapped
and wounded in the most hostile district of Mogadishu until a rescue
convoy can be mounted to retrieve them. Outnumbered and surrounded,
tensions flare, friends are lost, alliances are formed and soldiers
learn the true nature of war and heroism.
"Black Hawk Down" is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of
America for intense realistic graphic war violence and language.
