I’ve been meaning to see Black Hawk Down for quite some time. I like war films and mini-series (such as Letters from Iwo Jima and Band of Brothers), but I haven’t watched many that focus on modern-day wars. I tried to focus on the editing aspect of this film, because it is very prevalent throughout. I found the film’s manic editing to be kind of confusing and distracting. Half of the time I couldn’t tell who was on screen and who had just been killed. This may have been done on purpose to show the chaos and confusion that ensues when you’re actually in a war battle, but as a viewer I would’ve liked some more clarity. This really is a good film though, and it keeps you entertained because the action is relentless.
