    Black Hawk Down is a 2001 war film directed by Ridley Scott and based on the book of the same name by Mark Bowden. The film tells the story of the Battle of Mogadishu, a 1993 raid by U.S. troops in Somalia that aimed to capture two high-ranking lieutenants of the warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid.  

    The film features an ensemble cast that includes Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor, Eric Bana, Tom Sizemore, and Sam Shepard. The story follows the events of the raid, which quickly devolve into chaos as U.S. soldiers are pinned down by enemy fire and forced to fight for survival.

    The film is known for its intense, realistic battle scenes, which were meticulously choreographed and shot on location in Morocco. The cinematography and editing effectively convey the confusion and chaos of the battle, as well as the toll it takes on the soldiers involved.

    Black Hawk Down also explores the political and moral complexities of modern warfare, depicting the challenges faced by U.S. soldiers in a foreign land and the difficult decisions they must make in the heat of battle. The film was praised for its realism and accuracy, and won two Academy Awards for Best Film Editing and Best Sound.
