True story. US soldiers were put in to the fight in Somalia.
of the United States' involvement in Somalia during a war. On October 3, 1993, U.S. soldiers entered Somalia on an mission that as they thought should take less than an hour. 18 U.S. soldiers and 1000 Somalians were killed.


I have seen it many times and still can't be boring during that. Best characters for me are delta force soldier Eric Bana (Sfc. Norm 'Hoot' Hooten), Tom Sizemore (Lt. Col. Danny McKnight) and Josh Harnett (SSgt. Matt Eversmann) both rangers.
