      short comment

      The 2016 British movie "Ape Action": basically a movie with a bit of a running account, every plot point is predicted, but this does not prevent the shock of this movie. The advantage of the subject matter led to the fact that any real story of resistance in that era could be made into a movie. Although the first half of the movie is a little loose, the whole movie is tense from the assassination, until the last freehand shot makes people wet. This kind of feeling of knowing how...

      Failing to keep up with changing plans

      Plans that can't keep up with changes - film review "Ape Action"

      The war is long gone, and there are no more roars of Stukas over London, no more fires in the Atlantic, and no more butchers in Prague. When you think you know war well, you are wrong, it is not as simple as it seems. When I was a historically illiterate person, what I admired was the German army. The spirit of loyalty and martial arts in China was vividly reflected in the Germans. I admire the Germans with passion and...

      I jue: foreign war movies are better than Chinese ones

      (Those who open their mouths will come: you are a traitor who worships foreigners, you know that the moon in foreign countries is more round than China's blabla...)
      1. In terms of visual effects: First of all, in most cases, we think that foreign men's more manly appearance is more attractive in male-themed movies. Secondly (note, it is second), in domestic war movies, it must be to praise eng's great achievements in war, and my eng's typical tactic to fight the world is to...

      Real war has no heroes

      The so-called hero in war is not a casual title. When it is necessary to sacrifice one's life, everyone will hesitate and be afraid. Maybe I have watched too many positive patriotic education and anti-war films, and each of the protagonists can always give up their little ones in the end. I complete my self without hesitation, and you can even imagine the brilliance of the protagonists, the heroes who are too far and too far from our lives. The characters in anthropoid are more real, one is...

      History is far more cruel than movies

      It highly restores the only Allied operation against the high-ranking Nazis in World War II - the assassination of Heydrich, the No. 3 Nazi figure known as the "Butcher of Prague". The 120-minute film is just a simplified version, restrained, faithful, and forbearing to show courage and sacrifice, and the more magnificent historical facts are left to the subtitles at the beginning and end of the film to be unsatisfactory... History is far more cruel and frightening than the film——

      There is not much ideological entanglement, but it truly reflects the choices made by a few small people in the face of national and national hatred, and the sacrifices they paid for this belief. Cruel details like the torture of the child learning the piano and the old man who couldn't find potassium cyanide when the Gestapo...
