Blood the Last Vampire 血戰新世紀

blood-the-last-vampire-001

《血戰》是我喜愛的日本動畫﹐全智賢也是我愛看的韓國女星﹐長劍少女更是我萌的類型﹐《血戰新世紀》理應完全對正我口味。為什麼這套韓國資金﹐改篇日本動畫故事﹐劇中角色大講英語的偽荷里活片﹐可以如此令人失望﹐爛得足以榮獲金草莓獎的殊譽。

或許批評是人類的天性﹐又或許愛之深責之切﹐痛恨為什麼這套電影可以把九十分的動畫片﹐刪改得如此支離破碎﹐我對這套電影只有一面倒的批評。全智賢並不適合演小夜這個角色﹐一來她穿水手服已經超齡﹐二來她完全沒有武打底子﹐所有動作場要也依靠快鏡和借位。野蠻女友的可愛傻大姐不知去了那兒﹐這套電影中全智賢全程板起面孔來演﹐與我印象中柔弱的小夜完全不配。

電影的打鬥千篇一律是快鏡加凌亂剪接﹐在砍那一秒忽然慢鏡﹐假血漿從被砍中的敵人身上﹐像噴泉般四處亂噴。最要命還是那些CG怪獸﹐動作生硬像二十幾年前泥膠公仔動畫﹐倒不如找幾個武打員演來當那些吸血鬼﹐正正經經和全智賢過招﹐不要搞變身怪獸還比較好。最後小夜與翼手決戰﹐雙方竟然拋下手中長劍﹐改用龜波氣功互轟﹐我還以為自己看錯了龍珠。

若果連我這個《血戰》的忠實擁躉﹐熟讀原著劇情來龍去脈﹐也不明白這套電影的故事想說什麼。我可以百份百肯定﹐其他觀眾看得完全一頭霧水。電影中沒有突出小夜本身是吸血鬼的身份﹐沒有那份要殺光同類的矛盾心情。小夜所屬的組織赤盾在電影中忠奸不分﹐甚至他們行動目標也不清楚。小夜最後忽然成為吸血鬼女王翼手的女兒﹐簡直把原著故事改得亂七八糟。

最後想說說電影中每逢有小夜的特寫鏡頭﹐我的視線總是被全智賢鼻尖的暗瘡吸引著。心想是否小夜飲人血太燥﹐還是全智賢吃得太多泡菜熱氣。

Thanks to a popular TV series, Dae Jang-geum, Korean culture is the most trendy topic in Hong Kong as well as the Chinese community in Vancouver. The show is about the first female royal physician in Korean history. I had only watched about 5 minutes of the show in total, and couldn’t understand why Pat and many of my friends are so addicted to this show. Luckily the show is finally finished, so no more bombardment from the media. Inspired by the glorified cooking of this show, me and Pat went to try out the Korean royal feast yesterday, . The meal has about twelve courses and took almost 2 hours to eat, kinda like fine dining served in Korean style. The food is pretty neat, very different from other Korean BBQ restaurants we are used to. Out of all the dishes, the ginseng tempura is most extra-ordinary. The dinner is not very expensive, comparable to having 3 courses in any bar and grill restaurants in downtown Vancouver. Highly recommended.
