The search for human nature

The following is a serious spoiler, please take care of yourself.

The film uses a lot of metaphors to explain a little bit on personal understanding.

The lengthy section at the beginning of the film looks like a white donut wrapped around a black sphere, and the background sound is a series of word pronunciations, as I understand it, this is alien life creating a hunter (My character of Scarlett Definition) metaphor, similar to producing a robot and initializing it.

After that, the motorcycle man appeared, which should be the real alien life form, the owner of the hunter. He rode a motorcycle into the wilderness and picked up a female corpse? The Predator (Scarlett) dialed it all in. At this time, the hunter had no emotions, and was indifferent to the tears of the female corpse (probably not dead), and was only interested in an ant.

The hunter dressed up and started hunting, hooked up with the man, and the first was arrested.

After that, the beach scene should show the lack of human nature of the hunter. There is no response to the rescuer, the drowning person, and the baby. He picked up a trophy and left. Then the motorcycle man should be doing the aftermath work for the hunters, after all, he can't see the light. . . And how the swimming man will end is not indicated.

After that, the hunter hooked up with No. 2 (it should be No. 3), and saw how the prey in front died, a bit like the way the black widow spider handles its prey (laughs), dissolving human flesh and blood, and then sucking dry only one left. Zhang skin. From the back performance, it should not be the hunters who need to suck human blood, but the alien masters.

What happened to the hunter at this point touched her a little bit, someone delivering flowers, a radio broadcast of a beach accident, and the behavior of passersby on the street. At this time, the hunter absentmindedly hooked up with No. 3 again.

To deal with No. 1, he only took off his shirt, and No. 2 took off until only three o'clock left. When he reached No. 3, he didn't know what was taken advantage of, and he had to make up afterward. . . The alien host is also a bit strange, but still nothing.

At this time, the hunters were already a little different, and the confusion about their behavior led to the instability of the road. After that, a lot of information was intertwined, and they finally awakened their self-awareness.

Then he hooked up with No. 4 (Asimodo), which has the influence of the program set by itself, and also has some influence of self-awareness, and even released him after he succeeded. The alien master realized that something was wrong, but the hunter ran away. .

She ran to a deserted suburb and met a warm man. She wanted to try to be a person, but she couldn't complete the instinctive behavior of human beings. She couldn't eat or sleep. I found something wrong in the middle of Ai Ai, I'm sloppy, why is there a seam below, I haven't patched it, this is a big loophole (this part reminds me of the part where the Supreme Treasure found himself reincarnated as Monkey King, and threw the mirror... ) and ran away.

The alien master gathered his companions and began to hunt down the predator. The hunter ran into the forest and met a perverted policeman who was about to rape her, only to tear her face off. . . I wiped some monster and the police set the trapper on fire. . .

Predators are tools used by alien masters to use human sexuality to prey, but any tool can detect that human beings have other human natures in addition to sexual desires, but most people only pay attention to the outside, while ignoring the inside.
When a hunter has a perfect skin, even if the animal desire to kill is hidden under the skin, people will still get close, but when the skin is torn and an ugly appearance is revealed, people do not ask whether the heart of this ugly appearance is also true. Evil, just burn it to the flames. In contrast, the hunter doesn't care about other people's appearance at all, even in the face of Asimodo, he will sincerely praise his good side. . .

The film leaves us many places to reflect, and each has its own perspective, but Scarlett's figure is really worth discussing. . . It is estimated that it is so red because of the shadow of Monroe.
