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


The film is adapted from the real event with the heaviest casualties of firefighters after 9 / 11 – the 2013 Arizona fire.

On June 28, 2013, a forest fire broke out in Yarnell mountain, Arizona, involving millions of square meters. The Arizona State government dispatched 250 firefighters to the scene to put out the fire, and arranged helicopters to spray water in the air to cooperate with the fire fighting.

19 firefighters from “granite mountain expert team” did not leave enough safe space in the fire fighting process, were swallowed by forest fire and died bravely. US President Barack Obama called the firefighters “Heroes” in a statement.

It is said that this is also the forest fire that has killed the most firefighters in at least 30 years.

In the film, Eric (Josh Brolin) is the captain of the fire brigade. He personally established the fire brigade.

The film tells the story of this group of novices gradually becoming mature under the leadership of the captain.

The whole film has no clear main line and shows many elements, including the bridge section of fire fighting by the fire brigade and the life of the fire brigade as an ordinary person, which makes the film look not like a main melody film, but more like a realistic documentary or biography. It makes the film more real and the character image more three-dimensional.

For example, as a captain, Eric is extreme. He always believes in himself and is unwilling to listen to others. He loves work and is addicted to work. He has the ability to be a leader, but he is not good at interpersonal communication and does not pay enough attention to his family.

If his fire brigade wants to be the vanguard, it must take part in the examination. The content of the assessment is actual combat to put out forest fires.

During the assessment, the assessor with 40 years of fire fighting experience provided suggestions to Eric, but Eric was stubborn and wanted to work against the assessor.

Afterwards, Eric felt that he had made the right decision. He said he would still do so if he was allowed to choose again. But he knew that his fire brigade might not be the vanguard because he contradicted the examiner.

However, although the examiner thought Eric was arrogant, he was conquered by the strength of the fire brigade, so he still let them pass the examination.

It seems that not all examiners like flattery, bribery and bribery. It is the so-called “more sincerity and less routine”. Sometimes sincerity can move people.

Just like the film “march forward”, there is no routine or sensational, but moves the audience by sincerity.

Eric has the ability to think independently and has his own beliefs and principles. He won’t compromise to please others, which is an advantage in his work, because such a character is doomed to be conscientious and diligent. He only does practical things, doesn’t talk nonsense, only does serious things and doesn’t do superficial work.

But in the family, this has become a disadvantage. He cares too much about his work to his wife. When he was first with his wife, he insisted on not having children. Six years later, he was also unwilling to consider the issue of having children, and even seemed a little selfish.

So that his wife forced herself to become a strong woman, tried not to rely on her husband, and even didn’t tell him about a car accident.

It is precisely because Eric has the weakness of human nature that he appears to be a flesh and blood, vivid character, close to life and reality, and looks like the people around us.

After all, no one is perfect. If you don’t break the rules, make mistakes and have no shortcomings, you are a robot.

Brandon’s character is different from Eric’s. he tries to strike a balance between work and family.

He was originally a drug addict, a gangster, a thief. His ex girlfriend didn’t like him, and even his biological mother felt ashamed.

But he also has a trace of kindness. He wants to be a good man. After discovering that his ex girlfriend was accidentally pregnant, he proposed to be responsible without even thinking about it.

His ex girlfriend may think he is insincere or dislike him, say he can take care of the children and tell Brandon to stay away from her.

Brandon joined the fire brigade in order to prove that he didn’t just talk but practice, but also to live with his daughter with dignity. He had to stick to it even if his physical quality was poor.

His indomitable spirit also made him a firefighter and made great contributions to putting out the fire. He moved his ex girlfriend through practical actions and was finally able to meet his daughter.

At the moment of seeing his daughter, the rough man was so excited that he cried on the spot, because he knew that his efforts were not in vain, and he also felt the experience of being a father.

When Eric asked him why he wanted to be a fireman, Brandon said, “I have a daughter. I want to give her something I never had.”

This kind of thing is responsibility. Brandon proved that he was not talking on paper, but doing what he said.

Later, his mother began to worry about Brandon’s life safety and asked him to change a less dangerous job, which plunged him into a complex ideological struggle. Brandon is not Eric after all. He can’t put down his family. He was not accompanied by his father and lacked fatherly love since childhood. He could not let his daughter have no father like himself.

Interestingly, during the exchange of views between Brandon and Eric, they both listened carefully to each other’s ideas. Eric understood the importance of family. Brandon strengthened his determination to save people from water and fire and decided to continue to sacrifice himself to save people.

Eric was deeply touched by Brandon’s idea. Eric realized that he owed his wife too much and decided to resign as captain next year, but he could not save his wife’s six years of youth.

There are some reasons that we don’t understand when we are young, but when we understand, we are no longer young.

What Eric didn’t expect was that as soon as he left, he would say goodbye.

After all, he understood that family was more important, but he knew too late to make up for his responsibilities and obligations as a husband.

From Eric’s experience, perhaps Brandon can also learn the truth that we should cherish our family as soon as possible and not wait for loss to regret.

Mike is an old fireman. He also has a talent for music and formed his own band.

He has an open mouth and is arrogant. He says Brandon is “stupid Landon”, a “rookie”, and even Brandon’s lover with frivolous words.

He likes to joke and tease others. Although he is often untimely and will hurt each other, his nature is not bad, otherwise he won’t come to be a fireman.

Brandon helped him when he was homeless. They finally cleared their differences and established a deep friendship.

Later, Mike wrapped the corners of the furniture to prevent the baby from getting hurt, and accompanied Brandon on’s side when he was hospitalized, which shows that the straight man also has a gentle side.

He fell in love with Brandon’s nurse, but they didn’t marry. There is no dog blood line like “you wait for me to come back and marry you” in the film, nor does it create an unparalleled love. Even until Mike dies, the nurse may not know that Mike loves himself.

The real hero is like this. He can’t predict when he will sacrifice, and naturally he can’t express his love to the goddess in time.

“March forward” is a heroic film, but the style is very realistic. Deliberate sacrifice, forced sensationalism, vigorous love, opening with one enemy against 100 and so on do not exist in this film.

According to the experience of watching heroic films in the past, I thought Mike would stage a bitter drama of parting from birth and death with nurses, I thought firefighters would scream in pain in the fire, I thought Eric would sacrifice himself to save his companions, and I thought Brandon would fly a plane to save his teammates

However, none of these bridges were built. They talked and talked one second and burned to ashes the next.

(it is not ruled out that some fragments may be deleted)

The 19 firefighters in the fire were completely annihilated and did not survive. Only Brandon outside the fire survived. Brandon can do nothing but beat the car tables and chairs madly, because he is not an agent and has no special function.

On the surface, their death was not tragic, not great, or even humble, but the core was very moving and filled with tears.

This is the case in real life. Life is as fragile as an egg in front of a raging fire. Even a fire hood is useless. They don’t have the body of King Kong and super power. They will die in the face of fire.

This is not only to respect the real events, but also to get rid of those fancy routines and restore the original beauty of the film. There are too many sensational films and tears are too cheap. This kind of silent narration is even more valuable.

At first, I didn’t understand why they risked their lives to rescue the fire and why they let their families bear the risk of losing themselves.

But seeing here, I understand that even if they don’t become firefighters, others will become firefighters. Even if they don’t sacrifice, others will sacrifice, but they prefer to sacrifice themselves. They don’t want to live a miserable life. They just want to engage in such a high-risk career and save more lives at the expense of themselves. They sacrificed a family and saved hundreds of families.

At the moment they decided to become firefighters, they had made a choice in their hearts: my life does not belong to themselves or my family, but to the people.

As Brandon said, “I’m no longer guilty of surviving, but honored by these good brothers. You all know, they are heroes.”

Seeing the subtitle at the end of the film shows that he has defended hundreds of hectares of national land, protected countless families and saved people all over the United States. Even the rough and tough man will cry when he sees the prototype characters displayed at the end of the film.

In the face of these people who sacrifice themselves and achieve greater self, I want to say: you are heroes!

Facing such a restrained and realistic film, I want to say: This is a heroic film!
