Turn over the sea king to sing

The most powerful thing about Wen Ziren is that he truly allows passersby and the original party to find their own point, and tries his best to open up the channel between classical heroic epics and modern entertainment in terms of style (whether it is action scenes or soundtracks), "Sea King" The creativity that is enough to support the trilogy has refreshed the volume that a single superhero movie can carry with the craziest visual presentation. (choose between IMAX and Dolby Cinema, other halls are too wasteful of movies)

I'm actually quite curious about the reaction of those who disliked "Sea King" because of the "Prince's Revenge" routine when "Black Panther" was released. The battle seems to have crossed from "Lord of the Rings" to "Star Wars" (pay attention to the sound effects of the "spaceship" weapon!), Wen Ziren completed the retro return to the narrative style of the classic adventure movies of the new Hollywood period of the last century in the dizzying scenes (S Pierberg smiles with relief).

The reason why its reputation has exploded in China is that the shell of its magical epic has a lot of credit. Compared with real-world superheroes, this kind of story that is more inclined to an overhead world is more appealing to the Chinese people. After all, it is said to link two worlds, but Atlantis is the absolute main show. (Of course, the high-tech armor design of Atlantis... how does it feel like a Hollywood alien in the 1950s???)

Although there are a lot of special effects scenes, Wen Ziren also tried his best to take care of every main character, especially the two villains, when the literary drama was compressed, at least in terms of motivation. As the secondary villain of this episode, Black Manta has not been completely reduced to a functional role. Although the setting of "Killing the Father" is rushed enough, it at least avoids the complete flattening of Black Manta.

The last battle between Arthur and Aum on the sea rekindled my hope for the DCEU. It has both the classical oil painting color and strong sense of attack emphasized by Zack Snyder, and the unique fighting style of Aquaman.

Zach's rough play in "Man of Steel" is actually tailor-made for Superman (please forgive the peasant boy), and it is a failure to be promoted without restraint in JL, and this is not bad in the atmosphere of " In Wonder Woman, it's vague, especially the scene with Ares, and Aquaman has finally found a fighting style that suits him, not the reckless guy who would only be reckless against Steppenwolf before. The last freeze-frame picture will make all those who are still arguing about the pros and cons of Marvel and DC shut up obediently. The charm of heroes should be so pure.

It's cool to see Wen Ziren playing "Old Man" with huge sums of money in "Sea King". The passage of the Haigou tribe under the sea suddenly became familiar with the style of the soundtrack!

However, this does not mean that it is perfect. The reason why the epic melee of "Aquaman" differs from that of "Lord of the Rings" lies in the serious lack of foreshadowing. The battlefield as a whole simply focuses on the shocking appearance of Aquaman, and there is no condition to construct the rules and reasonable adjustments of the battlefield. The relationship between the global battlefield and the local battlefield, if you take into account the tactical issue, Aum is a mindless war waste, what would anyone want you to do in the infinite sea of ​​​​tactics? No matter how many casualties there are in a war that is not brewing, it is difficult for the audience to feel the same way. Thanks to the unique physical qualities of the deep-sea killers, otherwise some of the pictures are bloody enough hahahaha! As for the scene where he got the trident, has the screenwriter been unable to figure out a way to torture Arthur? ?

Although the visual effects are extremely good, the scenes between Arthur and Mela are basically not enough to spark the spark. Arthur's character is the type that is very popular with audiences, with super muscular tough guys and contrasting cuteness (look at the "Chinese people's" "Old friend" Dwayne Johnson), but in addition to not wanting to be a king, there is no "character defect" in the true sense, which makes it impossible to talk about the arc construction of characters in traditional superhero movies. (Of course, according to personal preference, this can be both an advantage and a disadvantage for the movie as a whole) Let's leave it to the next one~

PS. The ending song is super king, Mela HT must buy, the opening is too amazing, it really feels like a fairy tale when I was a child (the best emotional scene in the whole film?!). By the way, "Aquaman" is indeed beyond expectations and is enough to be regarded as a milestone. However, in my mind, the best balance of all aspects of DCEU's works is still "Man of Steel", and with the advantages of "Aquaman" It's unfair to criticize Zack. I'm not against you disliking Zach. The more authoritative the work, the harder it is to find a horizontal frame of comparison. You can just say that you don't like Zach's style.

Aquaman quotes

  • David Kane: I scavenge the high seas. You're the Aquaman. We were bound to meet at some point!

    Arthur Curry: Let's not make it a habit.

  • Orm: Down here, we have a legend about the Karathen, an ancient sea monster so powerful that even King Atlan himself couldn't contain it. So he imprisoned it in the depths of the ocean. In that abyss, the creature bides its time, waiting to rise again. Atlantis has been lying in wait, and now the beast has awakened.

    Arthur Curry: You know, there was a time when I wanted to meet you one day, get to know my little brother, let him know that he wasn't alone, and we could hang out together. If only I'd know what a dick you'd turn out to be.

    Orm: You were the reason our mother was executed. And I've hated you for it ever since. But I do not want to kill you, Arthur. I am going to give you one chance. Go home. Do not ever come back to Atlantis. You are not going to win this. A war is coming to the surface whether you like or not. And I am bringing the wrath of the Seven Seas with me.

    Arthur Curry: You know I can't let that happen.

    Orm: I know.
