Escape from Mogadishu is an excellent film, with outstanding tension throughout this white knuckle story. That I am surprised I never heard of with my dad being in the Navy at the time this happened, it’s an important story to be seen on the big screen if it still playing near you or check it out on demand.
The performances from the main cast would make you believe they are aiming for Oscars, they captivate the dialogue and are believable in their respective struggles and situation within the movie. You would think you are right there in the action. A lot of problems I have with movies that deal with a story like this, is that they tend to try hard to push an agenda or are one sided to a disservice.
Escape from Mogadishu luckily does not do that here, and it does not take the audience out from the story of what happened, if you are like me and have no clue about this story. It is a great watch, because you will not be able to tell what they get wrong or right.
Overall grade: 4/5 stars
