In addition to App of the week, every Thursday Apple chooses a Movie of the week, whose purchase is only $ 3. The title selected this time was Black Hawk in Danger, directed by Ridley Scott.
Check out his trailer:
Here's what Apple says about the movie:
Exciting and fascinating as well as bestseller by Mark Bowden in which inspired, Falco Negro em Perigo takes an unparalleled and immersive approach to war. The film has the signature of director Ridley Scott, who in the previous year released “Gladiator” and won the Oscar for Best movie. The Battle of Mogadscio in Somalia in October 1993 began as an attempt to capture a Somali military chief and his top lieutenants. But the situation quickly turned into an agonizing 15-hour struggle to rescue several downed helicopter pilots and deal with the consequences of the events. Scott masterfully captures the rampant chaos that marked the day of the battle between the persistent Somali fighters and the American soldiers who lived and died in the name of the belief of "not leaving anyone behind". Falco Negro em Perigo deserved the Oscars he won in the categories of Best Editing / Editing and Best Sound Editing at the 74th Oscar ceremony.
As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio (@tripalavra), who is a cardholder, was also willing to send us a personalized comment about the film:
Falco Negro em Perigo in my opinion is one of the best and most real films to portray modern war. It shows, in an extreme way, the American arrogance and its mistakes that culminated in the death of almost 20 American soldiers and almost 1,000 Somalis. Awarded twice at the Oscars in 2002 and directed by one of the masters in the drama-action genre, this production has a perfect harmony and plot focused on transforming a disaster into an overcoming one. I recommend almost all of the films by director Ridley Scott, who will soon bring us a sequel to Prometheus and is carefully producing a “Alien” rule, but this I count on in another review.
