Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


I’ve seen many films starring Tom Cruise, but only this one is as profound as “born on July 4”. This film is different from other Tom’s works in that it doesn’t win by Tom Cruise’s handsome and cool. On the contrary, Tom in the film Ronnie covey, the hero played by Cruise, is a retired disabled soldier in a wheelchair. He is drowsy, self abandoning, depressed and frustrated all day. This strong contrast, but paradoxically won great success. As one of the more outstanding works of avery stone, “born on July 4th” can be seen many times. Perhaps it is because I have too little contact with anti war films. This film gives me the opportunity to understand more deeply, many problems that have not been seriously considered in the past.

In the short history of the United States for more than 200 years, no war has seriously divided the values of the American people like the Vietnam War, intensified the contradiction between the main war and the anti war, and finally ended in a cynical cry, in exchange for the collective reflection of the political and cultural circles of the United States. Some people believe that the United States made a mistake at the beginning of its involvement in the Vietnam War. In terms of trampling on human rights, the Vietnam War nearly lost the honor of the United States, a firefighter in World War II; Some people believe that although the performance of the United States in the Vietnam War was not satisfactory, the United States also paid a price to protect the Asia Pacific region from the domino effect, that is, to curb the expansion of totalitarian communism. So many words.

The first part of the film is cleverly placed at the beginning of the end of World War II. Those American soldiers who returned from the war have become the favorite of American citizens and enjoyed all the honors of soldiers. This is a few strokes for environmental formers. Environment is a congenital factor shaped by one’s thought and behavior. And nationalism is that any country has room to play. Although nationalism is not necessarily bad and harmful, as a solid cornerstone of tyranny, it is a pile of dry firewood that can be burned at any time. John F. Kennedy’s speech is undoubtedly a manifestation of the promotion of nationalism, “don’t ask what the country can do for you, ask what you have done for the country.” Collocation became what I interpret out of context. Many people are inevitably taking the wrong words out of context. I think the essence of Kennedy’s speech should be in the last sentence, that is, “citizens of the world: do not ask what the United States is willing to do for you, but ask us what we can do for the freedom of human beings together”. Under the premise of lack of collective consensus, it brings immeasurable consequences for the violation of personal privacy. Over the past half century, we have seen slogans and slogans of patriotism and even love for mankind everywhere, but those who have lived have given us an experience: the values proud of encouraging collective honor have destroyed the weak individual’s sense of security. “One heart and one mind” is the greatness of human collective spirit, but can “one heart” really be achieved? People who don’t know what “people” are talking about “loving human beings”.

Ronnie Covey lost to his opponent in a competitive wrestling event. This setback may be more difficult for the protagonist who has maintained excellent performance since childhood than the failure of ordinary people. Encouraged by a US Marine Corps. The protagonist chose “fight for the country”. If you look carefully, you will find that this kind of young people’s psychology is common. In real life, we live in a collective sense of nothingness, no love, no purpose, and lack of life that can mobilize all positive emotions. So when I look up at the head of Che Guevara, I think it’s incomparably tall. His bright eyes and what he experienced behind his back only missed Paul Kochakin’s sentence “I have dedicated my life to the greatest cause of mankind…”. Perfect as an untouchable myth.

Everyone has a Guevara dream. However, dreams are sometimes out of line with reality. If you go in the wrong direction at the beginning, you will deviate further from your dreams. People should have faith and ideals. Empty enthusiasm is not the way. In addition to a thinking brain, they also need one thing: the courage to accept and bear the outcome.

I like another netizen’s comment, “their thoughts and behaviors may only be understood by those ‘angry youth’. The difference is that ‘angry youth’ is only keen on chatting online every day, while Ronnie has the courage to go to the battlefield.”

The complex understanding of the Vietnam War continues in today’s Middle East and even in conflict zones in Africa. I have read many books and documentaries before, which show that the US military had a lot of inhuman massacres in the Vietnam War. However, after careful study recently, we will find that the views here tend to be biased. During a military operation against the Vietcong, Ronnie Coway strafed the enemy camp. But after the shooting, the search found that women and children were killed. The reason is that the enemy uses ordinary people as military cover. Although all the ongoing wars have their slogans and reasons, they are not targeted by government organizations or individual armed forces. However, the old slogan “military and civilian fish and water” is not unreasonable. The military and civilian are complementary. One terrorist was killed, but relatives of two or three terrorists joined. Just as the Bush administration’s counter-terrorism strategy has led to more anti-terrorism and more terrorism. The reason why Israelis would say that mistaking Palestinian civilians is “a last resort”, the interpretation of which still needs to rely on the theoretical analysis and practical test of war crimes to make more and more progress.

But killing women and children is killing women and children. Based on human moral feelings and the military ethics observed by the protagonist, I don’t think killing women and children will have any honor. More remorse and shame. If the killing of women and children still won’t cause the enthusiasm to fight to subside, another thing happens is to arouse Ronnie Coway’s doubt about his own value. Accidentally wounded his comrades in arms to death, and he was disabled.

Only the honor of patriotism and loyalty can support Ronnie’s will to live, so he dragged his disabled body to exercise until he returned to his hometown. At this time, the United States is falling into an unprecedented anti war wave, and all kinds of hippies, dances, poems and street speeches related to it have become the mainstream. Left wing youth became the protagonist of the movement. On May 4, 1970, four students of Kent State University were shot and killed by Ohio National soldiers. This has escalated anti war activities to a fever pitch. In the film, Ronnie’s comrades in arms said to him, “when the United States is fighting a human rights war abroad, there is a big problem with human rights at home.”.

The left-wing youth also included Ronnie’s brother, which made our protagonist very angry. He thought it was an insult. When he handed over his life and health to the country, he received not treasure but pity. “If you don’t love your country, go away!” This sentence was repeated from Ronnie’s mouth. “If you don’t love your country, go away.” this sentence is full of willfulness and disappointment. We are no strangers. But who is not patriotic? When Ronnie was dressed in a fine marine uniform and sitting in a wheelchair waiting to receive flowers and songs of triumph, he was sighed by people on both sides. Even the children disdained to give him a “shooting” gesture… The soldiers who lost their honor are not soldiers. The shame of slaughtering women and children and accidentally injuring comrades in arms returned to the body.

Three impressive titles have always been my biggest feeling about the film. 1、 Ronnie Coway, who felt he was a waste for the first time, shouted at his mother about his sexual incompetence, kept shouting hysterical “genitals” and despised his shame of killing women and children and injuring his comrades in arms in the war; 2、 In order to relax the depressed psychology, I chose to travel to Mexico and shed sad and moving tears for the comfort of a prostitute; 3、 A wounded and disabled soldier who also came from Vietnam War cursed at the prostitute, accusing her of laughing at her sexual incompetence. The two wounded and disabled soldiers were abandoned in the wilderness, competing with each other for who was more mean and wasteful by cursing their shame, and even spitting at each other.

A friend of mine (brother snake) wrote an article on the positive significance of war from the perspective of anthropology, that is, people learn and promote progress in war. I am pleased to appreciate his novel and original views. However, if you want to look at the war with a positive attitude, this enthusiasm is difficult to mention. Just like the current Palestinian Israeli conflict in the Middle East, ethnic exchanges in Africa, living in an environment where there is no dawn of a truce, what travel, shopping, designer clothes, job opportunities, freedom to talk about philosophy… All belong to the world after death. I still remember that I was also a warmonger before. We talked about the yearning for war without concealment. We thought that war was actually the competition that Hitler expounded in my struggle, which must be passed by human progress. Only in war can the value of life be reflected in honor, because it is indisputably noble based on patriotic motives. Therefore, we are obscene and hope that Japan will provoke disputes near the sea, Taiwan will suddenly declare independence, or the United States will suddenly and arrogantly air raid China one day, so as to find a way out for us to go to war. In other words, we have these thoughts not really because we are more patriotic, but because we feel that life is boring and boring. That’s ridiculous. Is war really as honorable, noble, heroic and great as advocated in the propaganda machine? Yes, but not all. The real war is summarized by quoting a monologue of the protagonist in the bloody battle of alaman (I haven’t seen this film yet):

“In school, they often teach us that ‘people who die like heroes are glorious and great’. I have seen many such heroes on the battlefield, but there is no glory or disgrace, greatness or greatness in those deaths. They just die. They rot in the fortifications and don’t even get a poem of praise. Death is only in textbooks It’s beautiful. In real life, death is tragic, terrible, bloody… And it stinks. ”

“Displacement and migration are the result of war. There is also a state or collective machine in it. War is determined by the state or collective machine. Most people rush into it with blood and will not calmly think about and ask the fundamental question of” what leads to it “. Even after the end of the war, because power dominates the interpretation of history, people often do not have the opportunity to investigate what the war has really brought to individuals and what it has really created for the nation. ” (Long Yingtai, who owes their life)

The war was accompanied by family destruction, plague and orphans, and long-term reconstruction. As a trivial ordinary soldier in the war, the war will not bring you anything to choose from (deserters may be one of the choices). When bullets pass through the head and blood is painted on the ground, and all beliefs and values end at that moment, can death reflect respectable honor, Is whether your belief in delivering health and even life in exchange for fighting for it can stand scrutiny? Perhaps you can’t imagine that on the battlefield where countless brothers were sacrificed, the leaders and officers who sat in the back and talked excitedly and encouraged more soldiers to rush into battle shook hands with the enemy. The joint statement explained that the war was actually a “misunderstanding”… History has proved that there were very few sacrifices to maintain the positive value of the war, The vast majority of the war dead served as cannon fodder for those savage desires, temporary consciousness, and even ridiculous reasons. Is war worth yearning for? It’s just a pile of shit!

Ronnie Coway, who returned to the demonstration site as an anti war, was reborn. Until the 1960s and 1970s, McCarthyism in the United States still had a wide influence. Therefore, in response to dissidents, they will automatically put a hat on you: the Communist Party. This is not necessarily a commendatory word. Anti war is not plain sailing, but it has come to an end. I like the short words that the protagonist punched the camera at the demonstration site:

“Can you break through your complacency and sympathize with the people who suffered in this war? The crimes of the Vietnam War, do you hear me? I’m not cynical because of my disability…. I’m Ronnie covey, a Vietnam War veteran. Coming here tonight to illustrate that this is the wrong war. Society deceived me, deceived my brothers and deceived my countrymen. Deceived them to travel a long way Thirty thousand miles, the poor peasants were conquered. They have long resisted and fought for independence for a thousand years. I can’t find an adjective to express their disgust with this government. Some people say… If you don’t love America, get out. I love America. You love the American people deeply, but when it comes to the government, my love says’ stop ‘! Those in power are corrupt and men steal women and prostitutes. We want to show that we can’t bear it. We don’t accept it. “
