Black Hawk Down Review

Black Hawk Down was released in 2001; the director of the movie was Scott Ridley. The writers are Mark Bowden and Ken Nolan. This film is based on a true story. This film is about Americans attempting to capture two of Warlord Mohamed Farah Aidid's senior subordinates in the Bakara Market Mogadishu, Somalia. There were many characters through the assault and rescue. It shows how staff Sergeant (Matt Eversmann) is placed in charge of Ranger Chalk Four. While mounted on a .50 cal machine gun, Dominick Pilla (Danny Hoch) is killed while the convoy is trying to escape the city. This happened in 1993 in Somalia when a military raid took place.

The best part which was interesting was when the Somalians were hiding and they were working as a team to get across with the help of the crew. Each one of them went across while the others covered up for him. The part I didn’t enjoy was when a man was looking at the photo of his wife and daughter. This was very sad and heartbreaking to see that the family is going apart. This was very emotional which the reader can feel the pain that they are going through.

My overall opinion is that the movie, Black Hawk Down is good, attracting and interesting and I would convince the others to watch it too, whereas some parts were disgusting and very repellant. I think that the blood and injuries they had, affected me because when I watched it the shooting arises and makes me look away.
