160 elite U.S. soldiers drop into Somalia to capture two top lieutenants of a renegade warlord and find themselves in a desperate battle with a large force of heavily-armed Somalis.
No women are credited in the cast list. Giannina Facio, who plays Shughart's wife, picking up his phone call too late, was director Ridley Scott's partner (they married 14 years later, in 2015).
There. Technicals, nine o'clock.
The mini-guns and rocket launchers mounted on Little Bird disappear and reappear between shots (being replaced by flat benches) after it breaks formation when it is sent to Walcot's crash site.
All of the credits, including the main title, the dedication of director Ridley Scott's mother Elizabeth Jean Scott and the studio logos, is shown at the end.
A longer version of the scene where Sanderson inspects Grime's foot was filmed, but cut. Sanderson finds a piece of shrapnel lodged in Grime's foot, but he didn't feel it cause it cauterized on impact.
