「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

盜寶靠食腦

盜寶靠食腦



我很愛看盜寶電影,說明是去盜取不是靠搶,以前都曾介紹個一部名為:Thomas Crown Affair 還有 Italian Job 港譯:天羅盜網。過去的週日去完投票後,就乖乖安坐家中,欣賞了重拍的 Ocean's Eleven 港譯:盜海豪情,不過以後的續集 Ocean's Twelve 和 Ocean's Thirteen 都是狗尾續貂,不看也罷。(注意:以下含故事內容)






Directed by:Steven Soderbergh

Starring:George Clooney as Danny Ocean 賊頭,Brad Pitt as Rusty Ryan 賊二佬,Matt Damon as Linus Caldwell 賊仔,Julia Roberts as Tess Ocean 賊婆,Andy García as Terry Benedict 賭場老闆


【維基百科】After being released from prison, Danny Ocean (George Clooney) breaks parole and travels to Los Angeles to meet up with his former partner in crime and close friend Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt) to propose a scheme he has in mind.

The two go to Las Vegas to pitch the plan to wealthy friend and former casino owner Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould). The plan consists of simultaneously robbing the Bellagio, The Mirage, and the MGM Grand casinos.

Ocean and Ryan recruit eight former colleagues and criminal specialists, including Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon), a young and talented pick-pocket thief. Also recruited are Frank Catton (Bernie Mac), a casino worker and con man, Virgil and Turk Malloy (Casey Affleck and Scott Caan), a pair of gifted mechanics, Livingston Dell (Eddie Jemison) an electronics and surveillance expert, Basher Tarr (Don Cheadle) an explosives expert, Saul Bloom (Carl Reiner) an elderly con man, and "The Amazing" Yen (Shaobo Qin) an accomplished acrobat.

When the plan is put in motion, Ocean goes to the Bellagio in order to be seen by Benedict, who, as expected, has him locked in a storeroom to be beaten by a bouncer called Bruiser. Ocean, however, knows Bruiser, and he allows Ocean to leave through a ventilation shaft, to meet with his team in the vault.

The team activates a stolen pinch device to temporarily disrupt the casino's electrical power, allowing them to breach the vault undetected 。。。。。。。。







賊頭出獄後夥同賊二佬,找到支持者後策劃一宗盜竊案件,再找到其他的同謀者,合共十一人 Ocean's Eleven,不過目標的賭場老闆,與賊頭是一些過節的,因為他乘賊頭入獄時,娶了賊頭的老婆即是賊婆,所以這次是一舉兩得的工作,賊頭要順便偷埋賊婆返來。


賭場的保險庫內,儲存著州政府限定預設的大量現金,用來保障贏錢的賭客可以提取現金,賊頭看準時機有一億六千多萬美金的一夜,加上巧妙的佈置按計劃行事,打劫拉斯維加斯賭場的保險金庫。





計劃是讓一位矮小的中國籍雜技員,藏於小箱子內用計混入賭場的保險庫裡面,在關門後雜技員在保險庫內面,放置炸藥在門內面,賊頭和賊仔則值著剛巧大停電,一遍漆黑潛入保險庫,在外面於相應位置設置炸藥,同時引爆炸藥,爆破保險庫大門,入內偷取庫存的大量現金紙幣,藏好在預先準備的袋子內。


再由賊二佬通知賭場老闆將會被劫,賊頭算準賭場老闆會報警,跟著特警隊 SWAT team 很快就來到,打進保險庫和賊人搏火,幾聲爆炸聲後出來,報告賊人全死去,可惜爆炸時發生火警,儲存於保險庫內的現金紙幣大部份已被燒掉了,特警隊 SWAT team 唯有撤退。


賭場老闆重看錄像,發覺事有可疑,再入到保險庫巡視,根本沒有發生過槍戰,和多次大爆炸和火警,知道其中有詐,已經為時已晚。





我見:
盜寶片不是 drama,不是想看演技,所以不用談。以本片的鋪排不俗,是用腦袋去盜寶盜竊,不是暴力強行械劫,反而巧妙利用預知道賭場老闆一定會報警,先截聽了報警電話,再派出賊人扮演的特警隊,佯攻入保險庫和賊頭賊仔槍戰,最後撤退時把一袋袋的現金紙幣,施施然昂然帶出保險庫,逃之夭夭!


盜賊片的故事,有高手也有庸手,主要是用腦不使用暴力,和過程有沒有太多反駁,雖云聽故唔好駁故,祇要不是太離譜,攪開了個頭但草草埋尾,都容易過關收貨!


通常盜寶盜賊片,祇是先前一番鋪排,有用計謀有用高科技,再是互雙結合,到了最後結局,要賣就是如何在盜取到寶物之後,可以在神不知鬼不覺如何脫身,功成身退逃之夭夭,祇要有條好橋萬試萬靈。


雖然打劫、偷盜、詐騙、都是不法行為,當然大家平日不會做,所以在電影中,就可以製做這個夢工場,讓大家暫時走入不法的世界,發一吓白日夢。





這是翻拍同名電影 Ocean's Eleven (1960),我沒有看過舊版的電影,據 IMDb 這片有 仙翁 法蘭仙納杜拉 演賊頭,甸馬田,小森美戴維斯,和 顏芝狄堅遜 合演。


橋唔怕舊,最緊要受!

你想偷橋去做世界?

哈哈哈!以便兄:捱世界就有我份,數豆佬一向 prudence 先行,邊有膽識去做世界呢?

就算有世界可做,咁做完世界點樣可以甩身,逃之夭夭全身而退呢?今日永遠打倒昨日想到的辦法,既然沒有萬全之法,咪繼續數豆數豆豆囉!

Ocean's Eleven我也是去戲院看的,後來的續集都沒看了,這幾年很少看電影。

welcome in Jan Ng!
對,這個系列只有首集 《Ocean's Eleven》較可觀,其他續集不看也罷!

Yes,近年我也已經少入戲院,改為多看影碟,想這是個催勢!華語片根本沒有看過幾套。
