      fascinated man

      Ant-Man made a World War II spy film, trying to show Moyberg, a mysterious American spy during World War II. But the effect is not good. The reason can be attributed to the fact that Mr. Berg is too mysterious, and his choices are different from most people, and he is really the same man.

      This film first introduces the background of Moiberg, and then introduces Mr. Berg's greatest contribution...

      Is the male lead bisexual? ? ?

      There is a scene where the history professor shakes his hand, and then he wakes up naked and looks lost. . . . Isn't it just after one night's appointment and then the history professor leaves without saying goodbye? There are also hints in the front that the rookie players followed him and said he was the base. . . The director was too obscure. . . Let people guess again and again. . . And since I went to Japan to take pictures, why don't I take more pictures of the customs. . . The...

      some poetic war spy film

      After watching it, I feel that it is more like a literary film, which is reflected in several aspects: the color tone is very warm and comfortable, and maybe I like home very much, so I love the retro furnishings, architecture and home style in it;

      Lighting creates a good atmosphere

      The soundtrack is soothing...

      the person who hides in the heart

      a job

      "How do you know he ran over there?" the pitcher asked.

      "I just know." Morton explained helplessly.

      The professional baseball player of the Boston Red Tile team, known as Professor Mo, has three degrees from prestigious schools, is proficient in seven languages, and has an elite knowledge level knowledge level. In his opinion, it is common sense. Addicted to commuting to and from the baseball field and the library, any attempt to hide in front of him is in plain...

      Alien hero

      This time, by chance, I watched the movie more completely. It should be more in line with the description of World War II in my mind. There are many dark backgrounds in the film, and I can feel the tension of actor Paul Luther's interpretation. After all, such a drama needs the strength of the actors. War is cruel, it tests human nature, and it also tests directors and actors who use war as the theme. After all, the film is based on a biography of a real person. To be honest,...

      3.5, the score is low. The overall rhythm is well grasped, the plot is reasonable, the photography is brilliant, and the scenes are restored in place. Paul Rudd's acting skills are not bad or popular. Setting foreshadowing, this can be said to account for a high proportion in a biopic of only one and a half hours, but it has little impact on the subsequent plot, and the director is too eager for quick...

      For the actor's sake, rounding to the nearest 3 points. The narrative is so messy, a bunch of threads are unfolded and they are gone at the back, and I don't know what I want to express when I pretend to be gay for a long time. Sanada Hiroyuki didn't have any echoes in the back of the scene, so he made a short video without beginning or end. In the end, I thought you were going to mess with Ma Qiang, but nothing happened. But every man in this film is so angry about what's going on. Are you...

      This cast was stunned, and many stars came over to show their faces. The soundtrack is a bit overwhelming, but the content is alright, not so low as a...

      He wasn't telling the story well at all, he took some fragments and put them together in a mess, and the whole film didn't even have a few subtitles and narrations at the beginning and the end of the movie that were interesting. . I watched it completely with the support of a few actors I liked....

      I watched the premiere of Sundance'18, not to mention the difference between the movie and the original, the main character did not feel very chrisma in the performance, and I couldn't understand why the final decision not to kill Hisenberg was made by logic. . . And berg decided why the CIA/OSS didn't go ahead and send someone else to assassinate. . . In the post-screening Q&A, the director also said that in fact, no one knows what happened in this history, no one knows what H said to Berg,...

    • William J. Donovan: You're an unusual man Mr. Berg, you speak 7 languages, you're an athlete, you're more than up to the physical requirements of the job...

      Moe Berg: What job?

    • Sam Goudsmit: And so, the madness becomes real - We have to kill Werner Heisenberg, and I am to be a part of it.

      Moe Berg: No one wants to kill Heisenberg.

      Sam Goudsmit: Yeah? Then kidnap him! Send in spies to Germany and kidnap him.

      Robert Furman: Ah, you've read too many spy novels.

      Sam Goudsmit: I've never read a spy novel.

      Robert Furman: It's not that easy to kidnap somebody.

      Sam Goudsmit: Ah yeah, you mean killing is easier.

    • William J. Donovan: I don't know what god you believe in, Berg, if any. But I'll be asking mine to keep an eye on you.
