The movie itself was quite well done... Ridley Scott's quite at ease with the war themes, even though Steven Spielberg may have the upper hand in terms of perfection and more, Scott delivers nonetheless a savage, uncompromising vision of what happened in Somalia, although most characters feel unanimously the same written with different names, but the events and the society of Somalia truly were unsettling in themselves, and so it was amazing what they did to show us all the horrors of what they have lived through.
Special features are, to put simply: a perfect assembled package. Three discs boasting a proud and informative as well as entertaining content. You also have History Channel and PBS documentary on the actual events, showing quite tough footage, and a 150-minute long documentary on the making of the film, as well as several more interviews, featurettes, deleted scenes... the list goes one, but this is an edition fans of the movie SHOULD seek out before it's not available anymore.
Sure, Black Hawk Down may not be the best in Ridley Scott's filmography, but it sure is powerful filmmaking, showing skillful performances and more. This DVD edition dates from back when special editions still had a future and still delivered on all fronts.
