The Eight Hundred evaluation action

The idea and ambition of "The Eight Hundred" is to create a three-dimensional person. In the past, the protagonists of war films were either soldiers who faced the enemy head-on, or undercover agents who went deep into the enemy camp. However, the film started from a group of deserters. "The Eight Hundred" can be more and more popular in domestic war films, precisely because it "dare to shoot the truth of human nature, even ugly". The film broadens the dimension of our understanding of heroes. Before they sacrificed their lives, they also had ordinary, even cowardly, cowardice and struggles. The characterization of "The Eight Hundred" adopts the method of group portrait depiction. There are about 20 main characters alone, but this will also cause "I wanted to remember everyone's name at first, but it was mixed up later." Case.  
Unlike previous films of the same type, "The Eight Hundred" has no male and female protagonists, everyone is the protagonist, and everyone is a supporting role. From the title of the film, the director has set the focus on "people". People are the most important. Starting from human nature, the film not only depicts brave and fearless warriors in the war, but also depicts ordinary people who are afraid of death and war.  
War is cold and cruel, and the "quiet" in "The Eight Hundred" highlights such cold and cruelty. At the beginning of the film, the "quietness" of the north bank of the Suzhou River is outlined in a panorama of panorama. "Static" is one aspect of "The Eight Hundred", and the more important aspect is from "static" to "dynamic". It is not only the "dynamic" of war confrontation and wrestling, but also the arc of character change and growth, and the ascension of the theme spirit. process and attitude. In the tragic sound of gunfire and bayonets, the film focuses on presenting several paragraphs and sides of the war in which the "Eight Hundred Heroes" blocked the attack of the Japanese invaders. The cruelty of the war was first conveyed, and intertwined with it was the Painful sublime. As a war-type commercial film, the film faces up to the cruelty of war. At the same time, it no longer adopts the strategy of highlighting the wisdom and heroism of the individual commanding officers in previous war films, and even downplays the leadership of Xie Jinyuan. way to shape the group synergy composed of "meaningful ordinary individuals".

    Photography, visual effects, and mise-en-scene are first-rate, but the concept and core are not. Sun Yuanliang led the national army to withdraw from Shanghai, leaving only 420 people to defend the Sixing warehouse, and embezzled 260,000 yuan for the construction of fortifications. With few people and no money, can you fight without being miserable? Fighting badly, the goal of the national army has been achieved. Therefore, the essence of the defense of the Sixing Warehouse is that the national army uses these 420 people to prove that the national army is "still holding on", and sells misery to pray for international intervention. Eight hundred are just their pawns, kept in the dark from beginning to end. News pays attention to truthfulness, accuracy, fairness, comprehensiveness and objectivity, and the same is true of movies about real events. This film focuses on eight hundred to defend the four-line warehouse, but it takes a single stroke to the indifference and corruption of the senior military officials. This is one-sided and taken out of context. It is meaningless to make a war film that does not explain the background of the times. We not only need to know that they fought a war, but also why they fought, and also know the story behind the battle. Zhang Yi was a deserter from start to finish, without any growth. Jiang Wu and Wang Qianyuan's lines can be written more advanced. Raising the flag is tragic, but not in line with historical facts.

    7.5/10. I watched it with the expectation of 9 points. I regret to find that the film is not as good as I thought, although the quality itself is hard enough. Although the flag-guarding scene that should be the climax is bloody, it always lacks a little energy, resulting in no part of the fighting scenes in the whole film that is enough to be called a climax. There are almost four or five large and small battles against the enemy, which can arouse the emotions of the audience very well, but each paragraph is on point, and it does not really lead to the last touching tears, and the fight is so real that The flammable ignition point is also not well shaped. Including the retreat scene in the second half hour, forcibly sensationalizing, it only makes people feel that the rhythm is delayed and the hips are too stretched. The white horse imagery can be retained, but the fragment of the fantasy Zhao Zilong is completely meaningless, as meaningless as several slow motions. Fu Hua Dao's attentive and well-made attitude and Guan Hu's ambition are as obvious as the film's shortcomings. Although it is not as good as I imagined, it is a domestic film that is worth watching as a whole.
