「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

棄卒的憤惱

棄卒的憤惱



等足三年 星空奇遇記迷 trekkie 嗜悲,卒之 等到 新版 J. J. Abrams 版 的第三集 Star Trek 上映,至於好不好看呢?


嗜悲 是看 Star Trek: the next generation TNG 長大的一群,是為 trekkie 也!!! 原裝 60年代的 電視版,只從外國的 science channel 看過幾集,舊人主演電影倒也看過幾次,大多都是在電視重播中曾經看過,略有印象。


新舊兩批演員的對照




新的一輯 星空奇遇記 Star Trek, 由 J. J. Abrams 一手一腳揍大, 已經拍到了第三集,今次 J. J. Abrams 只做監製 producer,因為受聘導演另一部經典 星球大戰:原力覺醒 Star Wars: The Force Awakens,所以把 director 導演一職,交棒給 台灣 Justin Lin (Fast and Furious系列) 林詣彬 操刀。


而演 輪機部工程師總管 Scotty 的 Simon Pegg 有份創作第三集劇本,不過還有一個遺憾,演 俄國籍隊員 Pavel Chekov 的 Anton Yelchin,在拍畢全片後,最近不幸遇上意外死亡,成為最後遺作 RIP!!!






Star Trek 3: Beyond 港譯:星空奇遇記 超域時空 7月 21日 香港首映,比起北美 7月 22日 上映還要早一天。其實在今年年頭,已經看過第一個 trailer 預告片,但當時還未知有本港上映日期 。。。。。。嗜悲 餓了 Star Trek 很久 等到頸都長,於是在最早時間入戲院去觀看。



故事:(含劇透 可以 skip 在香港主要院線經已落畫)
【維基百科】Three years into its five-year mission, the USS Enterprise arrives at Starbase Yorktown, a massive space station, to replenish dwindling supplies while the crew takes shore leave.

Struggling to find continued meaning in their mission, Captain James Kirk has applied for a promotion to Vice Admiral. He recommends Spock as the new captain of the Enterprise. Meanwhile, Hikaru Sulu reunites with his spouse and daughter, Spock and Nyota Uhura have amicably ended their relationship, and Montgomery Scott works to keep the ship operational. Spock also receives word from New Vulcan that Ambassador Spock has passed away.

An escape pod drifts out of a nearby nebula. The survivor, Kalara, claims her ship is stranded on Altamid, a planet in the nebula, and the Enterprise is dispatched on a rescue mission.

The rescue turns into an ambush when the Enterprise is overwhelmed by a massive swarm of ships and is badly damaged. The swarm's alien commander, Krall and his crew board the ship, and unsuccessfully search for an alien artifact called the Abronath that Kirk that obtained on a recent mission. The swarm demolishes the Enterprise, and the saucer section crashes to the planet as the crew abandons ship in escape pods.



預告片 I



【維基百科】On the planet's surface, Sulu, Uhura and other surviving crew are captured by Krall. Kirk and navigator Pavel Chekov, accompanied by Kalara, find the crashed saucer section. Kalara is discovered to be Krall's ally when she attempts to retrieve the Abronath for him.

To escape Krall's soldiers, Kirk activates the still-functional boosters, causing the saucer to lurch forward and fatally crush Kalara. Meanwhile, a seriously wounded Spock and Dr. Leonard McCoy search for the other survivors.

Spock tells McCoy that he intends to leave Starfleet to continue the late Ambassador Spock's work on New Vulcan.



預告片 II



【維基百科】Meanwhile, Scott is rescued by Jaylah, a scavenger who previously escaped Krall's encampment. She takes him to her makeshift home, the wreck of the USS Franklin, an early-generation Starfleet vessel that went missing over a hundred years ago.

With Scott's help, the ship is repaired, and he, Kirk, Chekov, and McCoy and Spock are reunited and use the ship as a base. The group plot to raid Krall's camp to rescue the crew and transport them to the Franklin, then escape the planet.


Meanwhile, Krall coerces a member of Kirk's crew to hand over the Abronath that she had kept hidden for Kirk. The Abronath is the missing half of an ancient bioweapon, created by the planet's original inhabitants, that can disintegrate a humanoid lifeform in seconds.

With the device now complete, Krall intends to attack Yorktown and kill its inhabitants, and, using its advanced technology, go on to attack the Federation. Kirk and the others free the crew as Krall launches from the planet with the bioweapon, leading his fleet to Yorktown.



預告片 III 含主題曲



【維基百科】The Enterprise crew pursues Krall in the Franklin. Scott transports Spock and McCoy into one of Krall's drone ships. After ejecting the pilots they discover how the drone vessels coordinate.

Krall's communications is disrupted with VHF transmissions, causing mass confusion that results in the fleet's destruction. Krall and his three remaining officers crash in Yorktown. As Krall escapes into the city, Uhura and Kirk discover from the Franklin's logs that 'Krall' is actually Balthazar Edison, the original captain of the Franklin.

A pre-Federation human soldier, Edison became disillusioned after peace was established throughout the galaxy - believing other alien races will always be potential threats. When he and his two remaining crew were stranded on Altamid by a rogue wormhole, he believed the Federation had deliberately abandoned him. Having prolonged their lives with the vampiric technology of the planet's extinct natives (at the cost of their human biology), and re-purposing that species' dormant drone workers into the swarm, he now plans to destroy the Federation in revenge.

Kirk pursues Krall, who has consumed enough human life energy to pass as a humanoid, into the Yorktown's ventilation system where Krall attempts to unleash the bioweapon. Kirk forces Krall into a portal, causing the weapon and Krall to be ejected into space and perish. Spock and McCoy save Kirk before he is also blown into space.



主題曲 由 Rihanna 主唱



【維基百科】Kirk is offered the promotion to Vice Admiral, but he opts to remain as captain. Spock chooses to stay in Starfleet and resumes his relationship with Uhura. Jaylah is accepted into Starfleet Academy on Scotty's recommendation and with Kirk's influence. As the crew celebrates Kirk's birthday, they view the construction of their new ship, the USS Enterprise-A.


讀英文 維基百科 star trek beyond 記載,因為 J. J. Abrams 只能做監製,導演不停換人直至 Justin Lin 接手才定了下來。不過,個劇本卻因為換導演而不斷修改,最後由 Simon Pegg 操刀,才開始拍攝。卻又剪完片後,臨尾尾又要補戲,真的是一波三折,所以入場前 嗜悲 不敢寄予厚望。




我見:

整個故事是基於,federation of planets 和 Klingon empire 世界 的戰爭結束後,有戰功的軍人解甲回歸民事,於是被安置轉職做探索太空深處,變成像 哥倫布 麥哲倫 般的所謂 explorer 成為 探險家 。。。。


這些軍人因為不再為所用,成為冗員唯有安置他們做明為探索太空,實在卻是把他們放逐遠方,federation 眼不見為淨,他們在遠方星系遇到意外 流落異鄉,發出求救訊號上百年也沒有拯救隊來救援,因為他們其實是 federation 軍方的 “棄卒”,沒有人留意到他們!!!


年復一年的等候救援,到最後過了一百多年後,這份 “棄卒的憤惱” 燃起了報復的念頭,誓要毀滅放棄他們的地球人類社會,故事於是展開 。。。。。


至於,渡過地球一百多年生存而不死,不在今次討論之列,因為所謂地球上的時間觀念,在無邊無際浩瀚的太空,悠久的太空歷史比起地球的歷史,地球時間根本就只是一瞬間一眨眼之間,故此今趟不作深入研究,因為以前 嗜悲 舊文已經討論過幾次。


值得一提是,這班棄卒發動的攻擊是 “蟻多摟死象”,成億上萬億的小太空戰機,集結一起時像一艘巨大太空船,分散時分途出擊,千方萬面的向著 Captain Kirk 的 Enterprise 企業號太空船發動攻擊,多到連死光砲死光魚雷,企業號連珠礮發打極都打不完,最後全船被毀 Captain Kirk 被逼下令棄船,隊員們乘坐救生囊包 capsules 分散流落到,一百年前棄卒們落難後寄居的星球上,大多都即時變成了俘虜。


然而,Captain Kirk 雖然幸運沒有被俘虜,他絕對沒有放棄過,更沒準備拋棄他的隊員,單憑自己的力量,團結僅有未被俘虜的隊員,更聯合對方的敵人,拯救被俘虜的隊員們出險,然後再設法追趕上,去打敗棄卒們打算去襲擊 Starbase Yorktown 太空站 的大軍。


至於,最後 Captain Kirk 如何率領僅存的隊員,趕返去拯救在 Starbase Yorktown 太空站的人類,用甚麼妙著打敗這 “蟻多摟死象” 戰術呢?就留下讓各位自己去看電影(尚餘九龍新界小量戲院上映港島沒有得看),or 或者將來看影碟時解答吧。


視覺上的緊張刺激,當然更勝上兩集由 J. J. Abrams 導演的 star trek,因為今次是由 台灣 Justin Lin 執導,他的成名作 Fast and Furious系列 不用細表,林詣彬 處理動作場面和速度感,於視覺表達方式屢有創新,已是當今世上屬第一流。


故事方面,總算表達了兩個 concepts,如何處理多 ”出來的冗員” 和 “蟻多摟死象”,值得深入探討和思考,不會只是一味只有豐富動作場面,卻故事單調薄弱的弊病,劇本保留 star trek 一向一貫的風格。


Star Trek 星空奇遇記 故事本來就是 探索太空 尋找 新世界 新物種 新文化 無遠弗屆


Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.


主演老版 冼樸 的 Leonard Nimoy (March 26, 1931 – February 27, 2015) 去年逝世,因此需要完結他的戲份。在本片中也加入 老冼樸 去世的交代,臨完場 年輕版的 冼樸,打開了 年老版 冼樸 的遺物,裡面有一幅舊相片:

是對 60年代 Star Trek 的致敬吧!





對於 trekkies 應該是頗滿意的一部 star trek 電影,但對 star trek 比較陌生的一群年輕觀眾們,若只要求視覺上和官能刺激,也是可以收貨的!!!


不過若要求較高,要求對故事性的完整,除非你是一向有追看 star trek 電視劇或電影的話,有些情節轉折位,需要對以往的 star trek 有認識才會看得明白,和明白為何要有此一著,並可以發出會心微笑 。。。。。。否則只單看這一部 Star Trek 可能只會一頭霧水!!!


編劇們除了要爭取取悅年輕觀眾,也和照顧 60年代已經追隨 Star Trek 的老觀眾,給他們頗多 nostalgia 懷舊一番!!!

鍾樹根 屬不屬於 棄卒 呢??? 睇返 2012年 曾鈺成 36517 鍾樹根 33901,總數七萬多票,雖然 香港島 由柒席 減到陸席,在比例代表制下門欖 由 100/7% 升 到 100/6%, 卻不能硬說沒可能!!!

我對這部片是有點失望的,
感覺像動作片多於科幻片,
尤其是兩條大橋,
蟻多戰機和音頻訊號影響戰隊等等,
在以往很多戲都出現過,
沒有什麼新意,
看了三分一就完全猜結果。
另外艦長電單車救人兒戲兼老套,
好像是夾硬加入去,
加上主角可能年長了,
性格沒有了從前的不基和瀟灑,
變得平庸和一般人一樣,
很悶,
這套戲我看到大戰剛完就離開了,
實在沒什麼好追下去,
這導演的手法不是我杯茶
這片不像是有創意的科幻片,
頂多算是一部平庸的動作片。

新鮮兄 star trek 系列
一向編劇們注重
都愛利用故事傳輸一個意念
one or several messages
叫觀眾們用心思考下去
這在電影和以前的電視劇
都承存並加以發揚光大

今次 J. J. Abrams 改了去導演 star wars
而棄 star trek 兜兜轉轉一大輪
不斷換編劇換導演 用三年改寫劇本才拍出來的
star trek beyond 實在強差人意
尤其是劇本偏弱

會不會由開始籌備
就是投資者與執拍者矛盾
故此 J. J. Abrams
寧取 star wars
棄拍 star trek 的理由

先天不足 是為本片 致命之傷
今次全球慘敗 評價到處都偏低
而和票房收入僅僅不用虧本賺得不夠多

還有沒有再來一套來平反呢???
