Review

Furious 7(2015) - For Paul... and James Wan

本來真的沒打算看,但基於幾個原因,還是看了。包括︰留意到有影評回報電影為Paul Walker提供了respectable 的Ending。雖然效果未至於真假難分,又或者以當今技術換面都是錢的事,但還是有值得欣賞之處。例如將Brian的命運改寫。我沒有看過很多資料,但單憑故事的鋪排,明顯感受到故事將了結這角色。在不斷強調家庭、miss the bullet、不甘適應平凡,他注定會為妻兒犧牲。改寫不單獻予亡魂、給影迷一分心意,同時也是創意。已有的footage必謹加利用,盡量展現最後風采之餘,又要使人物命運改寫合理,也是相當有難度。拍攝時,如駁網前的打鬥,盡量對焦對手面孔,僅在最後拉遠鏡時露面唸白減少穿崩等等…實在感到很有誠意……而且似乎這部電影突破了過去的Fast & Furious框架……其實我冇咩睇過其他FF,看過的也沒多少印象(更試過看某集的第一場追逐已訓著),但有聞FF比以往玩得更誇張,也使我有所好奇。在沒比較下,我覺得7應該不單比以前有更華麗和具創意的動作場面和選景(是GTA啟發的風潮嗎?還是game glitches…)(追車可能還比不上以前),而且增強了喜劇元素、類型更傾向特務片種。雖然6似乎已經出現不少超現實如漫畫英雄的場面,但7應該是更進一步的明顯。追逐已不再重要……Fast也被刪去了,車的性能鮮有提及,改裝更是完全抹去,只講爽極的Furious場面。還有James Wan。接Justin Lin找一個亞洲臉孔,看似順理成章,但James雖然話暫不再拍Horror,但放心交這部鉅鉅製給他……那人真的了不起。James玩開低成本恐怖,一上動作大片的導演椅就交出穩佔All time WW No. 7的票房…駕馭大場面全無問題,實在佩服…Jason Statham的開場已預示了故事的瘋狂。(儘管如此,去到後期飛車爆炸依然是頗為疲勞…)當然浪漫位也做得很好,Bromance則應比前作弱,但可謂會更接近女性市場。

但更強的是國際市場。雖然結尾話回到地盤決戰,照顧番最大票房的美國本土、保留作品特色、省錢……等等,但走向國際的野心…還是達成了!Abu Dhabi!還讓角色像Mission Impossible系列的穿上華貴服裝…最重要的是主題outrun the past。徹底展現超越前作的決心,同時用於塑造人物︰超越痛苦記憶的Letty、放下殺戮的Brian,實體化於God’s eye的追蹤概念,還有懷念Paul而告別傷痛……少有貫徹的動作電影概念。雖然在人物描繪上不免仍流於表面,但於爆谷電影尚算非戰之罪,已算有development;一如God’s eye的科技意念不新奇,但切題……除了有些不太合理的劇情,Deckard Shaw沒再追殺Hobbs和帶God’s eye出街之類,沒頭沒腦的打機式目標為本推進還不會錯到哪裡去。除了動作設計一流外,攝影效果也是一大享受,雖然主要都係keep住郁唔好悶親大家,但係遇到重要場口,還是將Sublime拍出來。

整體而言仍略嫌有點長…但是別人就是要看大場面嘛……,但還是有驚喜。不過追看下一部的意欲嘛…還是沒增多。一切就像一場意外。

Toretto, Dom Toretto: How Fast & Furious owes James Bond...

With the release of Fast and Furious 7 last week, it’s worth noting the key influences so far. Almost every escapade has actively appreciated the globe-trotting, explosive-heavy, expertly-produced James Bond series – and the seventh instalment is no different… 991 more words
