So every commercial I’ve seen for Black Hawk Down have quoted a litany of people & sources who praise the movie as ‘one of the best movies of the year’.
That may yet prove to be true. However, when the movie is being released January 18th, isn’t that damningly faint praise? I mean, how many films have been released this year? A couple dozen, at most (at major theatres)?
Of course, I fear Black Hawk Down will nothing more than a contextless void of American Jingoism, praising America’s military whilst completely ignoring all that led up to the situation itself (and the link I post is a pretty favorable one).
