3 Disc Anthology - Black Hawk Down - Tears of the Sun - Casualties of War 18

£6.99

Product description

A triple-bill of modern war dramas.
'Black Hawk Down' (2001, director - Ridley Scott) is based on the US military blunders which took place in Somalia in 1993. Following a series of attacks by warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid on a Red Cross distribution centre, a group of US Rangers are sent on a mission to capture two of Aidid's close associates in the capital city Mogadishu. However, after successfully apprehending their targets, the Americans come under heavy attack from the residents of the city. In the ensuing chaos, a US Black Hawk helicopter is shot down, and the surviving crew find themselves trapped in a confused and relentless shooting battle with the enemy. With Ewen McGregor, Tom Sizemore, Ewen Bremner and Ioan Gruffudd.
In 'Tears of the Sun' (2003, director - Antoine Fuqua), Lt. A.K. Waters (Bruce Willis) of the Navy S.E.A.L unit is sent to war-torn Nigeria to rescue refugee worker Dr Lena Kendricks (Monica Bellucci), although he soon finds himself struggling between following his orders and his heart. Kendricks persuades Waters to escort her refugees on a dangerous journey through jungle to nearby Cameroon where they will be safe. With Eamonn Walker, Cole Hauser and Johnny Messner.
Finally, 'Casualties of War' (1989, director - Brian De Palma), is based on a real incident, about one soldier's quest for truth and justice amidst the violence and moral incertitude of war. On patrol with the hard-nosed Sergeant Meserve (Sean Penn), US infantryman Private Eriksson (Michael J. Fox) refuses to join in when Meserve and the other soldiers kidnap, rape and murder a Vietnamese girl (Thuy Thu Le). Eriksson's stance then puts him in a dangerous position when the patrol returns to base, as the other soldiers get increasingly worried that he might report them. Also starring Don Patrick Harvey, John C Reilly, John Leguizamo and Thuy Thu Le

Casualties of War is certificate 18, while Tears of the Sun and Black Hawk Down are both 15 certificate.
