夜宴 – 小心噎着

The Banquet poster这顿夜宴不能吃,肯定会消化不良;如果章子怡那象木头般地演技不早把你给呛死,那等菜上桌都让你饿死。有时候我觉得这些好莱坞化的华语影片过份于注重艺术美而忘了如何与观众联系。

老实讲,夜宴的画面美感十足,但噌噌无奇。宫廷皇装早在《英雄》以及多个不胜枚举的古装连续剧里睹得两眼发酸,唯一创意归属与《夜宴》里的宾勇,但他们的盔甲似乎多了点 Lord Of The Rings,少了点真实感。

根底来说,《夜宴》共鸣了虚假荣耀地短暂性,情爱或许能得永恒。不过讲故事的手法有点可笑,尤其是官兵屠杀艺术家的一幕,真的咽不下去。其实他们看上去也不象是标新的艺术者,看他们歪头摆姿,多半象断了枝的白色稻草人。那象我这样的观众会问,意义何在?好像是本土梁家班的搞笑行动上错景那样,弄得我同情也不是,笑也不是。

《夜宴》看起来好像是中餐师傅不懂得用西式餐具,煮出了一道视觉美,但口味欠佳的影片。虽说‘龙眼识珠,凤眼识宝,水牛眼睛识稻草’,可能我的电影口味多属草类,但《宴》实在是票房毒药。

    Really that bad huh? But I don’t watch “this type” of movie anyway. Kind of agree about your points.

      subjective la, everyone has their own takes of the movie… but 30 mins into this 2-hr show and i was fidgeting in my chair liao. it’s kind of slow and posey and zhang ziyi’s acting wasn’t of any interest to watch.

    Darren,
    I have no idea what you wrote but it did not seem to be very good comments about the film (from my somewhat limited Pri 3 Chinese).
    I did not find the movie very good and would have been glad to have given it a miss, like so many other movies that I had no time or inclination to catch.
    The funniest part of the movie must have been the scene between Zhang Zi Yi and Daniel Wu which I called the Dance of the Knife-wielding Fairy.
    Too bad there was not even a glimpse of Daniel’s Wu to lift the boredom (yes I am just shallow..:-))
