      The Love of the Year---After Viewing "Exile"

      Only today did I have the opportunity to watch "Exile" by the navel wind, the genuine edition of Zhongkai Culture. After reading it, I think it is very good. Lao Du has always liked to use cool colors, but now he uses warm colors to achieve a unique effect. The candles in the dark and the reflection of the wine bottle give people a sense of splendor and splendor in late autumn. Many netizens like to compare "Exile" and "Gunfire", thinking that they are sisters. I guess they say that because...

      wilderness

      The Hong Kong three-zone version is finally out, so fortunately, I didn't see any undercover.
      The two "Underworld" films reminded many people of the once unique image of the galaxy, including me. At first, I always felt that Lao Du was too indulgent in his formalism, and he was a little uninterested, but "Underworld" made me realize that Lao Du could tell a good film that was not sensational (unlike the previous Andy movies in the Tianruoyouqing series), and was not. Absurd (such as the...

      Who was banished?

      The five played big and small together in the slums. Zhang Jiahui, Huang Qiusheng, Lin Xue, Wu Zhenyu, and Zhang Yaoyang were like brothers. They all became gunmen when they grew up. Zhang Jiahui shot the black boss Ren Dahua and ran away, had a woman and a child, and sneaked back to Macau to live in seclusion. Ren Dahua found out and sent Huang and Lin to kill Zhang, and Wu and Zhang came to protect him when they heard the news. The melee for a while was actually just a game of guns and...

      A knight on the edge of the city

             The first time I watched "Exile", I was a sophomore in high school. I watched it again last night. I can't remember how many times I watched it. Every time I watched it, I found something different. In recent years, John To's most re-watched movies are "PTU", "Gunfire" and "Exile". I think these films are the strongest and most representative of Du's style. It's best not to look at the films of Johnnie To's series separately. The same elements appear in many films, such as coins and...

      contradiction

      I watched "Exile" on nights when I couldn't work, and the style is something that takes shape through creativity and then gets killed through inheritance and abuse, and that's how I feel when I watch it: the kind of dark coldness that Du creates. The feeling is so exciting in "Underworld", but in "Exile", it becomes a complete pretentiousness. The atmosphere and emotions have become components similar to toolkits, and there is no need to "shake". Come out, look a little boring. Of course, it...

      The section of Jie Jinjin is a bit out of control, Ren Xianqi playing the harmonica is a pure imitation of "Once Upon a Time in the West". Are the last four going to have fun or protect their wives and...

      Impulsively want to give five stars, no worse than "Gun Fire"! The 24K To Qifeng movie with pure flavor without any impurities is authentic enough! The camera, composition, and position are all too sophisticated and recognizable, especially the scheduling of the first, middle and last three indoor shootout scenes, which is really interesting. And it is worth mentioning that the flesh-and-blood brotherhood interpreted by Sir Du this time is no worse than that of John Woo. Sharing wealth and...

      I watched the full Cantonese version, the script was too weak. Old Du is a little too pretentious. The black super freeze Pose is overused. Guns and blood are fake. The performances of several acting schools are very mediocre. The most prominent is that Wu Zhenyu's acting skills have fallen into stylization after becoming famous. Zhang Yaoyang also lost his energy. Zhang Jiahui, like he has been half-red and not black for so many years, is completely out of...

    Behind the scenes gags

    In order to achieve the killer image in Director Johnnie To's mind, Ren Xianqi worked hard to lose weight and make himself stronger   .
    "Exile" designed a female character played by He Chaoyi, whose identity is the wife of a killer who escaped from the underworld. Because she is the only female character in the film, and she has to act with veteran actors such as Anthony Perry and Francis NG, He Chaoyi feels a lot of pressure   .
    Due to...

    "Exile" is the best representation of Johnnie To's poetic world. From the fierce yet gentle gun battle scene to the chivalrous bravery that sacrifices his life, with the progression of the plot, with the slow passage of the camera and the rhythm of loose and direct music, Johnnie To brings poetry into this Every corner of the shootout story ( Tencent Entertainment Review )   . The "intermittent" plot integrated in the film also makes...

    Counterpoint

    The film's narcissistic show-off shooting skills have entered the misunderstanding of formalism. Looking at the overall situation of the film, the biggest feeling of "Exile" is that it is eating its own money. There are a total of five shooting scenes in the film, and basically the same shooting is used. Routines, nothing new. The two small props in the film (coins and cans) were supposed to add color to the film, but due to the...
