谈论:我国战士在前史大片《八佰》中以寡敌众

这个主意是“疯狂的民族主义”或“崇尚献身”。大都大型预算战役电影都对人类逝世的羞耻等标明敬意,与此同时,跟着国歌演奏,尸身的各个部分也分布在屏幕上。好莱坞无疑在这种类型中处于领先地位:战役是阴间,但也有爆米花和旗号。 《八佰》肯定是这种类型。

?这是英雄主义和献身故事以及对人类生命价值的合理谈论的坚实基础。不幸的是,《八佰》跳过了整个人物开展部分,以及许多挑选和场景的逻辑。完好的情节减少了(为公正起见,据报道此版别比原始版别短13分钟)。

而不是像《黑鹰坠落》那样继续的高强度使咱们沉溺其间,《八佰》在其巨大的人物中分布着很多的散步时刻。可是不知何以,咱们不认识这些人。这类人物是被逼帮忙防护的逃兵和躲闪者的调集。大约是为了标明,平和主义者,胆小鬼等也会遭到启示,在同胞们目击如此英勇的过程中献身自己的生命。可是在这里,他们的类型比实践的人更多。

?其间一个显着的接连镜头触及的支付极大价值而取得的升旗,众所周知这将使许多人丧生。他们仍是这样做,并且的确如此。那真是令人激动。在一个满是残骸的被摧毁的库房中,当护卫向日本战士抛掷炸药时,他们将自己变成自杀炸弹袭击者,而不是简略地将炸药绑在很多碎屑上。这也是为了鼓励而扮演。哦,由于某种原因,影片重复运用(伴奏)“ Londonderry Air”(“ Danny Boy”)。

《八佰》崇尚献身,但关于那些寻求大屏幕史诗般战役的人来说,这几乎是现在的仅有挑选。

Review: Chinese soldiers face overwhelming odds in historical war blockbuster ‘Eight Hundred’

And the idea is "fervent nationalism." Or "fetishized martyrdom." Most big-budget war movies wave a hankie at the notion that it's a shame that humans die, etc., while splattering the screen with body parts as an anthem plays. Hollywood has certainly led the way in that genre: War is hell, but here's some popcorn and a flag. "The Eight Hundred" is definitely of that genus.

That's a solid foundation for a story of heroism and sacrifice, and possible commentary on the worth of human life. Unfortunately, "Eight Hundred" skips over the whole character-development part, along with the logic of many choices and scenes. Whole threads are dropped (to be fair, this version is reportedly 13 minutes shorter than the original cut).

Rather than immersing us in the moment as, say, "Black Hawk Down" does with its unrelenting intensity, "Eight Hundred" has plenty of meandering downtime spread out among its massive cast of characters. Yet somehow, we don't get to know any of these folks. The sort-of protagonists are a collection of deserters and draft-dodgers forced to aid with the defense. Presumably this is to show how even pacifists, cowards, et al would be inspired to lay down their lives on witnessing such bravery by their fellows. But here, they're more types than actual people.

One of the signature sequences involves raising a flag in a Pyrrhic gesture everyone knows will cost many lives; they do it anyway, and it does. That's meant to be stirring. In a bombed-out warehouse full of debris, when defenders drop explosives on Japanese soldiers, they turn themselves into suicide bombers rather than simply tying their explosives to the abundant detritus. This, too, is played for cheers. Oh, and there's repeated use of "Londonderry Air" ("Danny Boy") for some reason.

"The Eight Hundred" fetishizes martyrdom, but for those seeking big-screen, epic violence, it's pretty much the only game in town.

“真探”谈论:我没有看过“八百”,也不计划看。文娱著作和实在前史是两回事,实在前史应该被尊重和铭记!
