Every Thursday Apple chooses a Movie of the week at the iTunes Store, whose purchase (even in 4K / HDR, depending on production) R $ 9.90.
The title selected this time was “Batman the dark knight”, with Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Morgan Freeman.
Check out his trailer:
Here’s what Apple says about it:
In the second part of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, the Machiavellian Joker (Heath Ledger) says the following: “Disturb the established order and everything becomes chaos. I am an agent of chaos.” The phrase represents the figure of the villain who spares no effort to practice his evils in a film that mixes intense action and psychological suspense providing one of the great cinema clashes between good and evil: the conflict between the anarchic and terrible Joker and Batman, the crime fighter (Christian Bale). The Joker lives up to his bluster with antics that terrorize Gotham, disrupt the plan to dismantle the city mafia and endanger Rachel (Maggie Gyllenhaal), the woman Batman and public prosecutor Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) love. Furthermore, he still forces them both to plunge into the dark abyss of their own souls in this complex and brilliant tragic drama. Heath Ledger passed away before the film’s release, ending his career with a powerful, comical and impressive performance that earned the actor the posthumous Oscar® of Best Supporting Actor.
As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio [@tripalavra], who is a movie buff, also sent us a personalized comment about the film:
To begin this week’s review, I would like to ask Marvel and DC fans to set aside their preferences. “The Dark Knight” is the best adaptation of Batman, either for the great direction of Christopher Nolan, or for the great script and the performance of Heath Ledger – which won him an Oscar. For those who follow Batman, several details have been added; for those who don’t know it it didn’t matter because there was adventure, suspense and an amazing script. Yes, I agree that superhero movies tend to be simple, fun and even exaggerated. In this film we have a version that, within its universe, tried to walk close to reality, bringing its protagonist close to the audience. This film would go very well on its own, but thankfully it was accompanied by a trilogy.
