Black Hawk Down – If you saw the History Channel’s amazing, two-hour, better-than-a-movie play by play of the day, interviewing the author and the real survivors, you’d think the movie bites in comparison (or at least I did). The "Mogadishu Mile" in the movie looked like a casual, fun, jog, whereas the real account sounds like it was death defying and terrifying. The movie made it seem anticlimactic. Actually, I felt that the movie made a lot of things seem anticlimactic in comparison to the book/real life account. The soldiers left on the ground after the chopper crash, the captivity of the one soldier, all seemed anti-climactic compared to the History Channel special/real life account. I felt like the real life account was very emotional, and the movie just seemed, “Hollywood” to me. Also, there seemed to be an extremely tense and nail-biting snowball-type crescendo to the HC special, and the movie didn’t have that same escalating tension.
