Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Film und Fernsehen, Note: 1,7, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg (Institut für Medien, Kommunikation und Sport), Veranstaltung: Medienanalyse I, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Black Hawk Down ist eine oft nicht-erwähnte und vergessene Aktion in der Kriegsgeschichte. Der Film aus dem Jahr 2001 ist eine Postproduktion des Buchs von Mark Bowden. Der Regisseur Ridley Scott ließ sich vom Bowdens Buch inspirieren und vom Produzenten Jerry Bruckheimer unterstützen. Ridley Scott war schon bei anderen sehr bekannten Filmen dabei. Um einige wenige zu nennen: Alien (1979), Blade Runner (1985), Gladiator (2000), Hannibal (2001) (Wikipedia 2009) und viele weitere. Bei Jerry Bruckheimer wird die Filmografie nicht kürzer, im Gegenteil sogar. Hier einige Beispiele: Armageddon (1998), Der Staatsfeind Nr. 1 (1998), Pearl Habor (2001), Fluch der Karibik (2003)(Wikipedia 2009) und viel mehr. „Eine Analyse kann verschiedenen Zwecken dienen“(Mikos 2003, S. 37), Zum einen durch die Struktur des Films den Erfolg bei bestimmten Personengruppe zu erklären oder um Hypothesen zum Fernsehen und Film zu bestätigen oder zu widerlegen (Mikos 2003). Also eine Analyse kann mehreren Zwecken dienen, es kommt auf den Ansatz der Analyse an. Mikos nennt das Erkenntnisinteresse (Mikos 2003). Diese richtet sich in den Ebenen aus: 

This book tells the story of Task Force Ranger – a unit of US Rangers and Special Forces – and their attempt to capture the lieutenants of the Somali warlord Muhamed Farrah Aideed, during the 1993 United Nations' humanitarian relief mission. What started as a simple snatch-and-grab mission quickly degenerated into a desperate battle for survival when US Black Hawk helicopters were struck by rocket-propelled grenades and crashed into the streets of Mogadishu. Racing to save the crew, Task Force Ranger was surrounded by mobs of hostile Somali gunmen. The battle in the city raged all night as the better-equipped and better-trained US forces kept the nearly overwhelming numbers of Somalis at bay. Finally, battered, bloodied, and low on ammunition, the Task Force was rescued by a combined UN and US relief force and extracted to safety. Containing detailed maps and declassified information, this is a dramatic retelling of a brutal battle that had a far-reaching impact on US military policy.

Already a classic of war reporting and now reissued as a Grove Press paperback, Black Hawk Down is Mark Bowden’s brilliant account of the longest sustained firefight involving American troops since the Vietnam War. On October 3, 1993, about a hundred elite U.S. soldiers were dropped by helicopter into the teeming market in the heart of Mogadishu, Somalia. Their mission was to abduct two top lieutenants of a Somali warlord and return to base. It was supposed to take an hour. Instead, they found themselves pinned down through a long and terrible night fighting against thousands of heavily armed Somalis. The following morning, eighteen Americans were dead and more than seventy had been badly wounded. Drawing on interviews from both sides, army records, audiotapes, and videos (some of the material is still classified), Bowden’s minute-by-minute narrative is one of the most exciting accounts of modern combat ever written—a riveting story that captures the heroism, courage, and brutality of battle.
