A Somali warlord is playing politics with needed food supplies; elite American forces acting on behalf of UN peacekeepers are engaged in a mission to capture two of the warlord's lieutenants when their Black Hawk helicopter goes down. Exciting, non-stop action at the expense of character development, of which there is essentially none; the combat unit as a whole receives emphasis over individuals. Technically excellent propaganda, in summer blockbuster packaging.
