Hitting the mark

主旋律电影也能票房大卖

导读:如果你甘愿掏钱去电影院看一部主旋律电影,那么你一定是太寂寞……不过《暗杀》有点不一样。这部以爱国主义为主题的抗战片融合了众多商业大片的吸金元素,将视觉体验和爱国情怀合二为一,是当之无愧的主旋律电影新样板。

Mainstream films about resisting invasion often set a solemn, nationalistic tone, and accordingly, they are generally not that entertaining.

抵抗侵略的主旋律电影往往严肃并带有民族主义基调,相应地,这类电影通常都缺乏娱乐性的。

However, South Korean box office hit Assassination offers a welcome alternative. The movie is still a historical epic, and yet it contains all the elements you’d want in a blockbuster: pulse-pounding intrigue, heart-wringing drama, gun fighting and intense action.

不过,票房大卖的韩国电影《暗杀》是个例外。影片本身还是一部历史正剧,却兼具了商业大片的全部元素:摄人心魄的阴谋,扣人心弦的剧情,枪战火拼和激烈打斗。

This propulsively paced production revolves around a secret mission in 1933, during Japan’s 1910-45 colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula. A team of three led by Ahn Okyun (Gianna Jun 全智贤), a lethally adroit sniper from the Korean Independence Army, is designated to assassinate a business tycoon-turned-traitor and a Japanese commander.

这部节奏紧凑的影片设定在1933年,当时朝鲜半岛还在日本殖民统治下。故事则围绕一桩暗杀任务展开。来自朝鲜独立军枪法娴熟的狙击手安沃允(全智贤饰)领导了一支三人小组,他们被指派暗杀一名叛国的商业大亨和一名日本军官。

Choi Dong-hoon, one of South Korea’s most commercially successful directors, artfully peppers the film with witty lines, entertaining details and comic moments. There’s even a darkly funny scene where the other two group members drop their objections to Ahn’s leadership because they learn that she had been jailed for killing her superior.

韩国票房史上最成功的导演之一——崔东勋巧妙地在电影中加入了诙谐的台词、有趣的细节和搞笑的镜头。剧中甚至还有带点黑色幽默的剧情:听说安沃允曾因杀死自己的长官而入狱后,其他两个组员立刻放弃了对小组领导权的争夺。

Assassination also follows the story of two twin sisters, separated since infancy. They later get mistaken for one another, causing their fates to change. And there’s even a romantic subplot between the female assassin and a suave hitman named Hawaii Pistol – but it’s only touched on in passing.

《暗杀》故事情节中一个重要部分是关于一对从小失散的双胞胎姐妹。一次被误认为是对方将姐妹俩的命运彻底改变。电影中女暗杀者和儒雅的职业杀手夏威夷?皮斯托也有一段爱情插曲,不过只是一笔带过。

Though Assassination is a popcorn movie designed to have mass appeal, it focuses on patriotism as its central theme. It encourages viewers to stand up for their nation in times of crisis.

尽管《暗杀》是一部商业大片,但它却以爱国主义为主旨,鼓励观众在危机时刻与祖国并肩作战。

In the film, Ahn finds unlikely allies in her quest. She wins the trust of a cynical weapons dealer and an explosives expert, both of whom were reluctant to help at first. Then there’s Hawaii Pistol, the hitman hired to murder Ahn. He decides instead to join forces with Ahn.

电影中,一些看似不可能成为同盟的人最终与安沃允并肩作战。她赢得了玩世不恭的军火商和爆炸专家的信任,这两人起初并不情愿加入行动。而夏威夷?皮斯托本是受人雇佣来刺杀安沃允的职业杀手,最终也决定放弃刺杀,与安沃允一起战斗。

One of the most inspiring moments might be when Ahn is asked what’s the point of risking her own life to fulfill her mission. Even if she succeeds, more Japanese military officers will be sent to Korea, and more quisling businessmen may turn up. Her response is that she simply hopes to demonstrate to the Japanese invaders that Koreans will never give up.

全剧最激动人心的场景之一可能就是安沃允被问到为什么要冒生命危险完成任务了。即使她刺杀成功,也还是会有更多的日本军队被派往朝鲜,还是会有更多的商人甘愿沦为卖国贼。她的回答简单而朴实:她只想向日本侵略者证明朝鲜人民永远不会屈服。

With its patriotic theme, exquisite drama and solid action, Assassination delivers a surefire hit.

爱国主义主题,考究的剧情和出色的动作戏,《暗杀》能火顺理成章。
