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


Because watching this film is a bit of looking for secondary trauma, I have to write it more personally. Watching this film is different from watching such films as Apollo 13 or flight 93 – those I have never experienced. I can comment that those films have a good grasp of the suspense atmosphere of knowing the truth of the result. They are dramatic without lack of respect for reality. They are very moved / shed tears, indicating that they are well made, etc. I can’t objectively comment on the effect of the film on the audience, because it may be worse, or I may have a very nervous reaction that it makes the atmosphere good, because the effect of the film on me is more triggered by memory, and I will cry anyway. So, I want to talk about my reflection through memories and experiences, combined with some elements in the film.

1、 People like to make themselves feel important. It is necessary to introspect their vanity

I say this because even if I saw the preview of the film on the subway with my friends a few days ago, my first reaction was to say, “At that time, I was just a few blocks away, and many of my friends ran away… On the day of martial law in the city, I had no hair in my refrigerator, and I was hungry for a day… I was in a state of anxiety for several days, reading the news and crying, and then exposed and refuted false reports and false rumors on my microblog like a fan every day, as if someone else’s photo was used incorrectly is an insult to myself … I went to LV Lingzi’s memorial service, at which some Chinese people said that they were too selfish. I came back and wrote an article… ”

Looking back on what I said, it seems like a tragedy, which was used by me to show off my experience. Now I feel a little ashamed. Even when I watch the film, I’m introspecting – you’ve made the old habit of vanity again. You think it’s great that you happen to live there, don’t you? I’m so moved by myself. Do you want to offer me a bunch of flowers?

Of course, I have experienced many, very difficult school years in Boston, and the most difficult thing I have done in my life. So far, my close friends, hurricanes, snowstorms and terrorist events have made me feel very kind to Boston, because in the tension and fear from time to time, The people there are very strong. I have a very personal sense of belonging to marathon, a sense of attachment to “Boston strong” and a sense of pride in Boston, which are branded in my soul because of my personal experience.

But looking at the pictures of those injured again, watching the forced change of innocent lives and seeing the sacrifices of the police, I still think that pride and pride should be moderate. We should be proud of the cohesion of our common support and comfort at that time, the strength of the people around us, and the doctors and police on the front line; But don’t be proud that you’ve had a mock trial with people who have run in person, that you’re a witness, or that you live locally. Don’t take yourself as the center of the world you experience.

2、 Inferiority, security, masculinity

The point here may be made up by the film – the interaction between the terrorist brothers. I don’t know whether the CIA asked these details when interrogating my brother, and I don’t know whether the crew saw these details in the investigation. Therefore, when watching movies or my following words, we should maintain a little skepticism, because we don’t know whether the two people had similar interaction at that time.

When the Chinese car owner ran away, Dang’s brother immediately said to his brother, “you distracted me, so he ran away. It’s your fault.” My brother felt inexplicable – shit, I went shopping to refuel. You ran away with him in the car, but you blame me?!! My brother immediately used the most extreme violence in the interaction with my brother in the film, grabbed his neck with his hand, and reiterated that you distracted me. It’s your fault that he ran away, I! No! wrong!

This is a typical lack of security. Through violence, by showing the male under the traditional concept, and by suppressing others, we can fill our lack of security and hide our weaknesses. This is a very cowardly performance.

Again, I don’t know what the real situation is. I don’t think I would be surprised if you told me that my real brother is such a person. In the history of the world, most of the authoritarian governments, organizations and individuals who suppress others, prevaricate others, block others and belittle others through violence and strength are very worried and afraid – they are afraid that their shortcomings will be pointed out, that they will be despised, that they will lose power and the sense of security that power has, And most of them are men who are afraid of being called “not enough men” – in fact, what they fear most is themselves, and what they despise most is themselves.

I think it’s also important to reflect on this. Especially for ourselves, when others point out our shortcomings and even make a fool of ourselves, when others have different feelings and opinions from ourselves, there is another situation. When we are afraid of what others think of ourselves, we should reflect on whether we have a low sense of security before pretending to be “strong”, belittling and attacking others, and using violence? Those with fists and green tendons are exaggerated or ridiculous? Is this powerful?

3、 “We are very upset, so of course all means are necessary.”

I have written many articles before, discussing that people give up their good principle step by step because of insecurity and distrust.

After 9 / 11, the disastrous scale of American action films has generally increased a lot. In the man of steel, in order to tell a story, the whole city is almost gone. Many people feel that he is superman. He must have done the right thing to save the earth, so it’s no problem. Everything is right. But Clark I saw was a reckless man who fought as soon as he came up and rarely saved people. This is just an example. There are many scenes of random killing in Fulian. Even Nolan’s best “Dark Knight”, the audience basically gave him enough trust when watching his sonar monitoring system. He is Batman. He will eventually do the right thing. He is to protect us. No problem.

How to treat such narration and whether it should be accepted is subjective, but it also involves the thinking of “framing / story structure”.

After 9 / 11, in the superhero movies of this era, superheroes rarely save people, because people seem not interested in saving people. More importantly, they are preventing a great disaster that destroys the world. Accordingly, when a superhero is hit on a building, he just falls and a crack is not enough. Slowly, it turns into flying in through the window, glass fragments flying around, and then slowly into a big explosion when he touches something. Typically, in BVS, Clark flies back to the first action play after absorbing the yellow sunlight, The whole power plant was blown up – an unprecedented big explosion. Oh, it doesn’t matter, there are no consequences (it’s said that there is no one here). Everyone is protecting the world, it’s all okay However, in terms of narration, the explosion has no effect. With or without the explosion, the audience’s understanding of the sense of crisis of the battle and the odds of winning the characters will not have any impact. But so what? Heroes are saving us. He finally sacrificed himself. He defeated the terror monster. So everything is right.

Art reflects reality and also affects reality. This atmosphere reflects people’s world outlook after 9 / 11 and consolidates it.

What I want to say here is probably related to the loose grasp of the tone in some parts of the film or on the whole.

First of all, Melissa Benoist’s performance to her wife is very good, but the film shows her participation very vaguely. At the same time, it makes me feel that it is deliberately making the audience think that she supports terrorist acts. I feel it’s kind of cynical.

Then Melissa’s role was not warned by Miranda and there was no legal aid. As a lawyer, I know that there is an exception in the fourth amendment, that is, Miranda can not protect public safety for the time being. However, such an exception requires the law enforcement officers to be extra cautious. In this case, whether the wife’s constitutional rights are violated or not is an interesting and thought-provoking scene that urges everyone to come out and hold different views for discussion. But the film’s depiction of her and the sentence, “honey, you ain’t got shit” seem to be a moment deliberately built by the producer to make the audience applaud and applaud. It always feels very strange.

In addition, Peter Berg obviously wants to highlight the theme of “love” and publicize the power of love, which is more beneficial and powerful than the hatred, self hatred, inferiority complex, dead support, forced violence and so on. However, there are also many interesting details in the film about anti-terrorism politics, the relaxation of constitutional rights, and the use of force by the American police – such as the last group of people shooting at ships – which should be put into people’s thinking, but they have no foothold and tail. I doubt most viewers who don’t talk about the constitution all day, Will you see these details and feel the challenge of these complex situations to your values and think about it? If not, if most of the audience feel very excited after the sentence “honey, you ain’t got shit”, if most of the audience don’t think the scene of machine gun shooting at the boat is absurd, the film will lose its original complexity, and it may have a similar effect with the superhero film mentioned above.

I remember that day I finally heard that he was caught and I could finally go out to buy food. I was happy to hum lonely island’s “I’m on a boat” and went out to buy pizza. I obviously remember my mood at that time. It was very Vengeful, like a strong sense of revenge, the key is to dispel hatred. In this movie, many tough Boston men’s appearance and dialogue have a little taste of hatred, or let me recall my own mood at that time. For me, it’s very subjective. To some extent, it weakens the foil of the final power of “love” in the film, which makes people feel a little contradictory.

Therefore, in the end, it’s not a major event in life to comment on the film, but if you can take something away, you should remember some common weaknesses in human nature, always bring a mirror of your heart, don’t avoid difficult emotions and ideas, use your brain, dare to really love, really care about others, and be more compassionate and compassionate, Be less willing to ask for the sacrifice of others for your own sake.
