史密斯先生 (Shoot 'em up)
another movie night on HBO.
another movie sacrifices itself for the self-esteemed biased humor naming process of Taiwanese film company.
Simply because there is another movie leading by Brad Pitt and his hateful "girlfriend",
this one is named after that!
(exactly, name after!)
it seems like a convention for this naming process to entitle movie in a kind of
seemingly "logical" and "reasonable" way.
For instance, no matter what Will Smith does in the movie,
the titile is always something about "全民"
Likewise, Bruse Wille can only become a "detective" (警探)
even though the original English title of the film has no relation to that word.
(Actually it is "Die Hard"....)
(Actually, the original one is always more suitable...)
In this movie the leading male figure is a killer...
(yeah~~yeah~~ just like Brad Pitt... and that's the only similarity)
(unless, you try to connect the movie with the real life of that male actor with four or six? children)
Clive OWen acts so well and I think his personality and complexion
fits the character perfectly.
that cool- sharp-determinate-tough killer,
who is assigned to protect a baby...
"i am a baby-sitter with perfect shooting skill"said Owen in the movie.
another surprise of the movie is
I've almost forgot this glamous and gorgeous female actress,
or you can also name her as another beautifl and shining ornament ....
she's so amazing and I can hardly guess how old she is!
you know~~ Euopean woman and their age..
what a mystery...
Still, i am happy to see her again.
even thoug she is still doing the thing she is good at--
as an ornament in the movie leading by male hero-like figure.
but, why not!
we do need them
it seems like I haven't mentioned anything about the movie.
it is a good movie and from the very beginning to the end,
Owen is sooooooooooooooooo
and that tough-ness turns him become a super cool character.
only take a glance of how he shoots those bullies,
i can not help but shout
such a MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also this movie is obviously followed the stereotyped "Black Humor" film,
which tends to humorize typical heroic actions and satirized other fims as well.
for instance, Owen's magical gun skill is so exaggerated that
everytime he shoots, one might think
"what's that! it's impossiblem but it's sooooooo cool"
meanwhile i think Owen's characte can also fit the genre of "硬漢電影"
(i am not sure if this is the correct or existing term but it sounds familiar to me)
all in all,
i do recommend the film for boys, men, and people familiar with this type of movie.
