Good looking isn't the only criterion for judging a movie - not even the criterion

In the criticism of "Creed", the core point is that the movie should be good, and "Creed" is not good. Obviously, "good-looking" here is ambiguous. I presume that what they mean by good-looking means nothing more than entertainment. However, they forget that film, as the seventh art, is essentially an art, not entertaining, except for the technical features that make people feel more immersive and empathetic. duty of. If you take a step back and understand that good-looking is easy to understand, there are many difficult books and movies in this world. Although the story of "Creed" is difficult to understand, the director did not deliberately put on a posture to prevent you from understanding. Does Nolan want to make a good movie? No, at least not by mortal standards. Although wearing the cloak of a secret agent film, I took you to seven countries, but I took you to Russia without going to Red Square, and I took you to India without going to the Taj Mahal. The audience seemed to be signed up for a fake tour group. Take a tour of a remote abandoned industrial base. You know that the magnificent scenery and beautiful cars are just the usual visual stimuli for commercial films, but you still like them, but Nolan doesn't use them. He stubbornly uses his works to tell the audience that the pursuit of food and art can be unified. With The Dark Knight, he raised the bar for the superhero genre by two notches. Looking at the chronological order, Nolan's works over the years are constantly pursuing inward digging and extending at the ideological level, but they are more restrained in the outer shell, serving only necessary expressions. Exquisite structure, complex relationships, the core of the story connected by rich details, and the brainstorming that the movie itself brings to the audience, which is the "good-looking" pursued by Nolan. Like a philosopher, he invites you to play a game and keeps asking you why, until it irritates some people and inspires others to discover that "doubt" may be more interesting than "believing" a story. "Creed" describes a story of a small group of people carrying the burdens of all mankind, but with almost no sensationalism. It is aesthetically beautiful, because real heroes do not have so many fans of flowers. I think it is even a reflection of Nolan's work and personal value, and I love such people very much. They are excellent, self-contained, determined, and progressive. When others are eager for quick success and mediocrity, they work hard and pursue the ultimate. After many years, it is finally understood by the majority, and those people still feel that it is nothing more than that, but they don't know that it is the doubts of the few people in the past that have constructed the comfortable shade that the majority should take for granted.

    In any case, understanding the plot does require a bit of brainpower, but the problem is that there is not a single character in the whole movie that can make me care enough to use my brain...

    No matter how much you understand, you don’t want to read it a second time anyway. It takes a little patience to be able to finish it.
