The legendary agent in a dilemma

007 James Bond is not only a golden sign at the box office, but also symbolizes the ultimate fantasy of men in the world, such as adventure, luxury cars, and beauty. In 2012, Bond's leap at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games established his status as a global film classic icon. In addition, the British wind is blowing now, and even Hollywood superhero blockbusters have to invite many British actors to help out. The British national treasure 007 new movie "007: Spectre" naturally attracted the attention of countless fans.

Today's "007: Spectre", like its acclaimed predecessor "007: Skyfall," has been directed by Oscar-winning director Sam Wenders. It can be said that the greatest contribution of director Wenders is to add a unique artistic style to the 007 films with obvious commercial flavor in the past. Especially reflected in the photography of this film, the bold use of amber tones makes the film full of quaint nostalgic poetry. Music, clothing and other parts are also elegant and low-key, with an elegant and noble temperament. But under these appearances, the characters and stories of this film are indeed a bit far-fetched compared to the three-point characterization of the previous entry.

"007: Spectre" is already the fourth time that Daniel Craig has played 007. According to common sense, the longer an actor plays the same role, the more in-depth understanding of the role, and the more they can reach the highest level of indistinguishability between people and drama. But Craig doesn't know if he's tired of playing Bond or something else. The whole film doesn't see any "heart-to-heart" play. There's only a go-to investigation, fighting, and destruction, and the design of the action scenes is nothing new. . Originally, men should be envious, and women should see crazy 007 Bond, but there is nothing pleasing about him.

Christopher Waltz, who plays the villain, has won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor twice, and this time he is naturally familiar with the most familiar black-bellied character. However, due to the script with many loopholes, IQ and EQ are really in a hurry: Bond can easily escape under the circumstances of taking advantage of countless times, and it is clear that Bond can be shot with one shot. His motives were ridiculous, and instead made Walz, who was acting so hard, look like a clown. In the end, he worked so hard to manage the technology base for decades, but he was turned into ashes by Bond's bullet, and the paper was better than this.

With the rise of the feminist movement and the increasingly strong voice of female audiences, the Bond girls who were reduced to sex symbols in traditional 007 films have been increasingly criticized and denied. Bond's almost limitless lovemaking has come under fire from all quarters in a time when conservatism is back in the mainstream. Especially Danny Gregor, who is in his 50s, in the movie, the shy old face and the young girls working on fire, make the feminist elites shout "It's tolerable and unbearable"! So in order to show his politically correct position, the director of this film chose an "older" Bond girl who is similar in age to Bond. Although Monica Bellucci's charm is not lost in the past, the plot arranged by the screenwriter for her is really ridiculous: Bond killed her husband and met Bellucci at his funeral. When they were young, the two played difficult positions in front of the big mirror. What was the reason for this? Previous star Daniel Craig also said that he was exhausted physically and mentally from playing 007. I think it is kidney deficiency.

Another Bond girl is French actress Lea Seydoux. A few years ago, she played an extraordinary villain in another classic spy film "Mission Impossible 4", and now she appears in the 007 movie, which really makes people feel a little transmigrated. And her temperament is still more than rigid, but not soft enough. There is a scene in the movie where she fell in love with Bond on the train, which is obviously a tribute to the similar plot in "007: Casino Royale", but the French Bond girl Eva Green, regardless of her looks and temperament, has left Seydoux several blocks away. In fact, the serious decline in the level of Bond girls has been symptomatic since "007: Quantum of Solace" in 2008, and "007: Skyfall" has no obvious Bond girls at all, and the director even claimed that "M is played by Judi Dench. Bond Girl", it does taste a little heavy. Looking at these two Bond girls who are seriously out of touch with the public's aesthetic tastes, it makes people wonder: There are so many Hollywood beauties, why can't you choose two for 007?

Perhaps the blandness of the Bond Girls was intentional by the director to highlight Bond's other emotions? In the film, the one who flirts with Bond the most is actually the male Xiao Xianrou Q. The handsome and slender Ben Whishaw made countless rotten girls scream and go crazy when he debuted in the last movie, and all kinds of YY fans flooded the Internet. Now the director has added a lot to Q in the spirit of "following the way of the fans, leaving the fans with nowhere to go", especially his resentful eyes when he blamed Bond several times, which makes me feel that a large number of rotten girls are about to arrive on the battlefield . Nowadays, the rotten wind is blowing in all kinds of literary and artistic works, and even in the ultimate fantasy 007 of men, there are such scenes of love, which really makes people sigh at the rapid change of the times.

Three new years, three years old, and another three years of patchwork. It has been nine years since British movie star Daniel Craig played James Bond in "007: Casino Royale" for the first time. There have been rumors before that Craig is exhausted from playing the No. 7 intelligence agent, and this may be his finale. In fact, in the more than 50-year history of the 007 series of movies, almost every time when the starring is tired, it is often a critical moment for the success or failure of the movie series itself.

In the late 1980s, when Timothy Dalton resigned from 007 due to copyright disputes, it coincided with a series of world political reshuffles such as the upheaval in Eastern Europe. The spy film dominated by the Cold War mentality encountered unprecedented challenges, and the transformation was imminent; 1995 At the beginning, Pierce Brosnan took over, the spy wars of the 007 series of films weakened, and they fell into the routine of American movies to save the world, and in order to take care of the global film market, the visual effects became more and more dazzling and exciting, and the passionate scenes became more provocative and tempting; In the early 20th century, with the rise of a series of realistic agent films such as The Bourne Bourne, a series of exaggerated and dramatic words and deeds of James Bond made people seriously question its authenticity. For example, he can go anywhere without changing his name or surname and say "I'm Bond" generously, and no matter if he is friend or foe, as long as he is a beautiful girl, he will drag him to the bed. Although the movies are all deceptive, he is not afraid of not knowing the goods. I'm afraid to compare goods, and compared with the low-key and rigorous Bourne next door or Ethan Hawke in the "Mission Impossible" series, Bond seems too flashy. So starting from "Casino Royale" in 2006, the original visual The 007 of the department has also taken the tough guy line. It is said that when Daniel Craig was chosen to play 007, his ruthless appearance also offended many old fans, and some even established the "Daniel Craig is not 007" The website ridiculed it very much. But when the movie was actually released, its hardcore and real style was both applauded and popular. It seemed that the 007 series of movies had found the right direction to continue to be invincible in the new century. So from then on, the style of 007 was a Colder and darker than a movie, "007: Quantum of Solace" in 2008 appeared the first Bond girl who did not have too many emotional entanglements with Bond, which caused many feminists to praise, "007: Skyfall" in 2012 The contradiction was directly aimed at Bond's own childhood experience, and it rarely ended in tragedy. The result was the highest-grossing 007 film in history, pushing the series to a new climax.

But there are still many fans who complain that Bond has been on the road of dark reality for too long and lost his original glorious features. So this "007: Spectre" can clearly see that the director is trying to combine the tough guy charm of the new Bond with the boyish temperament of the old Bond, so as to satisfy both old and new fans. For example, the mysterious organization "Spectre Party" and its leader actually appeared many times in the Bond movies in the early years. Scar, these have been inherited in the new film. Even the film invited former wrestling star Batista to play the villain's thug, in order to replicate the classic villain "Steel Teeth" in the previous Bond movies. It is a pity that these tributes are often bluntly placed in the entire film. Old audiences are not satisfied, new audiences do not understand, and both ends are not flattering.

The movie market in 2015 was the year of the strongest spy in history. However, in the spy films with their own characteristics, the ancestor 007 swayed between the gorgeous past and the grim reality. With the mass base formed over a long period of time, the box office performance of the premiere was still dazzling, but the word of mouth fell to the back of the car in a number of similar themes. It's more thrilling and exciting. Tommy climbed a plane, played diving, and drove a racing car in person. It was a lot more brave than Daniel Craig, who had to use a stand-in to drive a motorboat. The handsome guys in "Secret Agent" not only have both beauty and body, but also buy one get one free, which can be called the conscience of the industry; for independent and strong female audiences, you can choose "Female Agent" and have an addiction to female agents saving the world; For mature audiences with a hard-core realistic style, Spielberg's "Bridge of Spies" truly restores the US-Soviet spy war during the Cold War. The overall texture and humanistic feelings of the film are absolutely Oscar-level; for elementary school students who have just left school, "Secret Agent" is wonderful The action scenes are full of creativity and eye-catching. In the face of veterans and newcomers with strong players like Lin, the creators of the 007 series should think carefully about what the core competitiveness of the series is, otherwise, it is really suspicious how long this golden signboard can be played. Director Sam Wenders and star Daniel Craig have made the final 007, and indeed, Bond has come to a crossroads where he wants to reposition himself

    That thick and moist Octopus! That hard stick! It's like a large oval stone buried deep in the womb! In this big dyeing vat full of sexual symbols, an abstinent cat-raising technology otaku Q Taro naturally became the object of my desire. Foreign policy: the killing of men and the sleeping of women are simply a log of British aggression.
