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


First, for ease of understanding:

a. The “reset capability” is abbreviated as “r energy”

b. Humans with r energy also have r energy blood. The way to lose r energy is r energy blood flow

c. Those who have R and can complete at least one reset will have “reset memory”, referred to as “R memory” (regardless of amnesia, and the video does not involve amnesia)

Therefore, we can divide the relationship between humans and reset into four categories:

A) a person who has no r ability and no r memory

B) people with r ability and R memory

Class C) people who have no r energy and have R memory (in the video, this situation is almost always: they once had r energy and later lost r energy due to blood transfusion)

Class D) people with r-energy and no r-memory – this kind is not discussed and not involved in the video. The reason why this fourth kind is almost impossible is that the virgin reset must be completed at the moment of having r-energy for the first time, so as to have r-memory for the first time

OK, let’s focus on the following:

There is only one and only one history. In the only real timeline, Rita and cage have completed and only completed one truly effective reset. As for the monster brain Omega, it has completed several times. Let’s talk about it.

The so-called “effectiveness” is reflected in: first, she and he suddenly changed from an ignorant self to a self full of memory, so memory became a powerful weapon; 2、 The impact of this reset will be forever engraved in later life, forever engraved in human history, and will not be replaced by other resets. (Note: other resets of Rita and cage are also “effective” to some extent, because those resets affect their memory, but only memory, which indirectly affects human history)

The only real timeline is this:

Wait a minute. It seems that the exact date is not indicated in the video. For ease of understanding, our virtual date is as follows:

1. The day when cage went to Whitehall to meet the general and was turned to the airport was June 6

2. Beach landing, June 7

3. Verdun victory, March of that year

OK, say the only real timeline: (ABCD… In linear chronological order)

A. In February, before Rita’s last reset (at this time, class a Rita), Rita was still an ordinary soldier with the same combat ability as ordinary people

B. One day before March, the monster brain Omega completed a reset. It used its memory to make a decision: let mankind win in Verdun

C. In March, the day before the battle of Verdun, Rita finished the last reset. In a moment, class a Rita disappeared and was replaced by class B Rita

D. In March, during the Verdun campaign, Rita of class B killed hundreds of evil spirits by using the combat capability accumulated in the previous 300 + resets (which became the publicity material of cage later). However, at the end of the campaign, Rita was injured and not killed in battle and was in a coma

E. The comatose Rita was transfused with blood. Through some special perception, she knew that she had lost r energy forever. Class B Rita became class C Rita, and then it will always be class C Rita

F. In March, the battle of Verdun ended and mankind won a great victory

G. In April and may, cage (at this time, class a cage) was engaged in publicity. Rita, who was recovering, continued training and prepared for landing on the beach

H. On June 6, cage went to Whitehall by helicopter to see the general

1. On June 6, cage completed the last reset (Note: Omega also completed a reset at the same time, because cage’s reset is equal to Omega’s reset. Of course, the last reset of cage and Omega is the most difficult to understand. We will talk about it later. Here we only talk about external phenomena, not internal principles). The external phenomena are:

——1. 1) in an instant, the class a cage in the helicopter disappeared and replaced by class E cage (it’s not class B or class C, it’s class E. what class E is? It doesn’t matter later)

——1. 2) Omega is dead and generates a lot of energy surge, and the reset mechanism will never exist again

J. Human beings observed the surge of energy and found that the evil spirit had completely retreated. The general began to prepare the speech for the press conference

K. On June 6, class E cage stepped down from the helicopter, and the female officer told him the good news of Yisha’s overall defeat. Cage then saw the live broadcast of the general’s press conference on TV

50. On June 6, cage went to the airport and saw the brothers of class J running. Cage went to Rita’s camp and came to Rita who was doing yoga. Rita stood up straight. At this time, for Rita, it’s the first time to meet cage (it doesn’t count to catch a glimpse of cage on TV). For cage, it’s the n-th time to meet Rita. The video ends in the aftertaste of “if life is just like first sight”

The above is the history that really happened in reality. The rest of the plot is unreal history. In other words, it only exists in the memory of cage or Rita.

OK, let’s not comb through these unreal history for the time being, but first discuss several key reset setting difficulties:

(I)

We should be clear that a conventional setting of time crossing science fiction films is that the time line of the time traveler itself is not affected by crossing, especially his memory. In other words, the timeline of the time Strider itself keeps moving forward in a straight line. In essence, why these films are still a single-minded linear narrative is because the memory of the protagonist (time Strider) grows linearly.

Well, under this general rule, it can be divided into two categories: (Note: time passes through a variety of works. Here is not a “classification” of everything, but a small classification to find reference for this film; also note: Although the plot outline of source code is very similar to this film, source is essentially a virtual world)

One is like “back to the future” and “looper”. After returning to the past, the traverser does not replace the past self. The past self and the traversing self are two independent subjects (so there is a classic confrontation during execution in looper)

The second category is like “X-Men: reversing the future” and this film. After the wearer returns to the past, he replaces or partially replaces himself in the past. “Reversing the future” is a partial replacement, only replacing consciousness, not the body, so wolverine is still a bone claw of a soft shelled turtle; This film is reset. OK, what is reset? Is partially replaced. Very complex part replacement: (Note: here is human reset, monster wait a minute)

1) Instead of consciousness, with R memory, cage’s increased combat skills after training will also be retained

2) Without replacing the body, the body from the future is dead and fragmented, and the body after reset is intact

3) Instead of blood, or more accurately, It is the retention of a mysterious substance related to r energy in the blood (this mysterious substance has the following characteristics: A. it will be emptied by blood transfusion; B. it cannot be transmitted to other humans through blood or sexual intercourse; C. when this substance is emptied, people can feel it and know that they have lost r energy forever. Well, we call this substance “R substance” for short)

Therefore, in cage or Rita’s reset:

1) Consciousness

2) Substance r in blood

These two things are preserved, the body is reset, and the rest of the world (except monsters) is reset

In addition, because there is substance r in the blood, cage does not have to be contaminated with alpha blood every time to have r energy

(II)

We then raised a question above. So, what are the monster’s own things preserved in reset?

OK, then ask, what is a monster?

Looking back, the old scientist said:

1. The monster is a complete biological organism, and a single silver ghost / Blue ghost is a part of this organism

2. Silver Ghost is doing physical work, similar to human muscles. Blue ghost alpha is a central nerve cell

3. The monster’s brain is called omega (the monster itself is not called Omega, be careful not to confuse it). The death of a single alpha will automatically trigger Omega to reset

The above facts are known. Next, make some reasonable conjectures about monsters and reset, and give a reasonable conjecture 1:

When cage participated in the beach landing for the first time, it killed an alpha, and its body was filled with alpha blood. Therefore, cage was mistakenly regarded as an alpha by Omega, which is why cage’s death triggered reset

In addition, suppose the alpha killed by cage is Xiaoming. After cage resets for the first time, has Xiaoming resurrected? The answer is, in fact, there is no resurrection, but Omega thinks it has. We went back to the scene where Xiao Ming was killed: Xiao Ming was blown to pieces and disappeared. At the same time, there was a relatively complete body (cage) next to him. There was a lot of Xiao Ming’s blood in this body. If you were Omega, would you mistake cage for Xiao Ming? meeting.

Therefore, reasonable conjecture 1: after the explosion, cage was mistaken by Omega for the alpha named Xiaoming. Since then, every death of “Xiaoming” will trigger reset

Reasonable speculation 2: after a reset, the death alpha that triggered the reset will be resurrected. This is derived from the resurrection of cage. Moreover, as a central nerve cell, alpha has the obligation to carry memory, so the memory of alpha will not be reset. In cage, cage’s consciousness will not be reset, which is necessary for Omega, because if the key memory of alpha (in war, it is key Intelligence) is also reset, the significance of reset itself is not great.

Therefore, Omega is also the one who allows cage to retain consciousness after reset, while others are from realizing that the body is completely reset (incidentally, the time jumper can pass through time by pretending to be the nerve cell of the monster, which is an innovation in the type of time crossing in this film).

Reasonable conjecture 3: after a reset, the dead alpha that triggered the reset will wake up at a time point about the day before his death. This time point is fixed for a period of time, that is, Omega will not calculate the exact 24 hours from the alpha death time point and then reset at that point, but choose another relatively fixed time point (for example, if you choose 8:00 as the fixed point, you will reset back to 8:00 whether you die at 23:30 or 2:00 a.m. the next morning).

We call this relatively fixed point “R point”. The most commonly used r point in the video is the time when cage wakes up at the airport. It can be guessed that point R should be the harbor with relatively good berthing conditions selected by Omega after measuring the terrain of the whole time river. In the battle of Verdun, the point Rita reset back again and again was another r point.

Well, after saying so much, we can go back to answer the question at the beginning of (2): what are the monster’s own things preserved in reset? Which are reset?

1) Silver Ghost, all reset

2) Blue ghost alpha

——2.1) alpha’s consciousness / memory is preserved

——2.2) the body of alpha is reset

——2.3) substance r in alpha blood is retained

——To sum up, the reset mechanism of alpha and cage is the same

3)Omega

——Retain all (what is the component of Omega? I don’t know. It should be closer to alpha. For ease of understanding, we still compare it to the human brain. In many cases, omega = consciousness = brain = memory = reset mechanism. Why should Omega be retained all, because consciousness should be retained all)

(III)

OK, with the foundation of (1) and (2), let’s solve the remaining problem of segment I on the only real timeline: what happened to the last reset of cage?

Set the last reset of cage to the nth time, then the penultimate time is the N-1 time.

Before answering this question, let’s make a hypothesis. If the screenwriter wants to minimize the audience’s doubts, he will write this: write the N-1 reset of cage as the last one, which happened before cage was transfused. After the blood transfusion, cage and Rita went to kill Omega together. In the Louvre, Rita died after the soy sauce died. Cage and Omega died together. No one could reset again, but mankind was saved and the video ended. Of course, you know it’s impossible to write that.

In order to reunite the men and women, the screenwriter let cage obtain the reset ability for the second time underwater and immediately reset. The men and women resurrected and reunited, but left a suspected logical loophole: why didn’t Omega resurrect in reset?

In fact, the setting of this “loophole” is very skillful. On the one hand, it is not obvious, and it appears at the end of the video, which will not disturb the satisfaction of the audience. On the contrary, it can let the audience continue to discuss the video after they get out of the cinema, and as the discussion continues, they will find that this is not a loophole.

OK, why not a loophole?

Let’s look at the known facts first:

1. Omega also launched this reset

2. Omega started reset without alpha death

3. Omega started the reset when it was damaged (presumably, the damage caused by the grenade explosion triggered the reset from all aspects)

4. The R point of this reset is different from the previous cage airport wake-up, but wake up on the cage helicopter (to distinguish, we mark these two points as “airport r point” and “helicopter r point”)

5. Almost at the same time that cage woke up, Omega died and produced energy surge, which was observed by humans, and the evil spirits also retreated in an all-round way

6. Cage still has R memories after reset, while others have no r memories (Rita’s R memories in Verdun do not count). To be more precise, cage still has “R memories after waking up at the airport on June 6” (in addition, the audience also has R memories, and the memory of the audience and the protagonist keeps growing synchronously)

OK, let’s make a reasonable guess:

Reset itself is a process. In other words, a reset takes a short period of time, which we call “R hour”
