李安的『綠巨人浩克』從籌拍、製作、一直到宣傳、上片以來,一直背負著不少國內外影迷的期待與壓力,大家不免好奇這位導過『理性與感性』、『臥虎藏龍』的導演,會怎麼把這部漫畫改編的作品呈現到觀眾眼前?從票房來看,6月底上片的第一週表現亮眼,果然勇奪全美票房冠軍,而第二週略掉一個位置,直到本週又退居到第五,這樣的成績傳達了什麼樣的一個訊息?老外的接受度是不是沒有當初想像中的高呢?

剛剛去個國外電影網站,看了一下外國網友對於綠巨人的評價,果然有不少那種看慣『蜘蛛人』、『夜魔俠』、『X戰警』等聲光娛樂片的觀眾,期待這類改編自漫畫的電影能夠單刀直入刺激渾身感官,所以對於李安賦予綠巨人的人文元素還不見得能完全適應與茍同,當然也是有不少識貨的行家挺身而出為李安說話,於是這場有趣的口水戰因焉而生!

先來看看一個莫名成為眾矢之的的羔羊所陳述的抱怨:
「I've just seen The Hulk over the weekend with quite some expectations. It turned out to be a disappointment. You don't need Jennifer Connelly to play Betty at all. A lot of the scenes are just silly ,long (much longer than the fight scene with Agent Smith in Matrix Reloaded ) and pointless. It seems to drag on without purpose.
I have never read the Hulk comic before and had next to none recollection of the TV series back in the old days. Ang Lee is the main attraction behind this movie , but what is he trying to do? Is it just me keep turning and toss on the seat over the 2-hour period?」
為了服務懶得看英文的少爺跟少奶奶,稍稍解釋一下,是這樣的,這位仁兄他衝著李安的份上去看了綠巨人,結果大失所望,覺得劇情冗長又乏味,稍稍抱怨了一下。

沒想到一場口水戰便開始掀起,這位抱怨的網友被一群人嚴詞討閥,有位來自華盛頓洲的史密斯先生(這地點跟代號純粹是我瞎扯的)率先回應:
「What are you talking about? I was not only entertained by The Hulk but thought it had a well developed plot and good acting( at least as far as action movies go). And as far as comparing the action scenes to the scene in Matrix Reloaded, that scene seemed to just as long to me as any fight scen in The Hulk( but that doesn't mean that both scenes were not entertaining or exciting to watch). And since you have no previous knowledge of the character you cannot possibly judge how well Ang Lee portrayed his vision of The Hulk. In summary I couldn't dissagree with your opinion more.」
是這樣的,他非常不滿這位沒看過原著漫畫的人大放厥詞,而提出相反意見。

接著另一位炮火比較猛烈的網友接著回應:
「Rubbish!! The themes of the story were quite obvious - the rich history of the character was respected - and the direction was superb. It was not a popcorn flick...it was a Greek Tragedy - if you want brain-mush, watch Charlie's Angels....if you want a multi -level sci-fi opus...watch the Hulk」
嗯嗯...講得相當犀利的這位來自蘆洲的金萬嘆先生(這部分依然是我自己加的啦),有種鄙視而開罵的感覺,他說如果你要腦袋醬糊,儘管去看霹靂嬌娃,如果你要看的是多層次的科幻鉅作,就看綠巨人浩克。不過我這兩部都愛的話,真不知是品味獨具還是口味不挑。

接著有人跳出來緩緩氣氛,以較為誠懇的態度來推崇綠巨人,他說:
「 The Hulk is one of the years best movies. It has great drama, characterisations, and impressive visuals. Ang Lee has directed a wonderful tale of inner (and outer) conflict. He offers us a tale of a man who unleases his inner frustration and anger, personified in a bewildered child-monster. The CGI is ground-breaking, the acting top notch, and the story moves with a clarity not often found in movies nowadays. THE best comic-book adaptation yet! 」
這位觀眾給的都是很正面的評價,直誇綠巨人有絕佳的編導、優秀的演員與成功的特效等,更覺得本片是最佳漫畫改編的電影。

沒想到繼續有個講話更霹靂的美國劉文聰來放話,實在有種「霹靂火」台詞的親切感,他開罵說:
「Any idiot who doesn't like this film deserves a lynching! If I see you on the street, prepare for a curb check, you brainless monkey! The Hulk is a dark brooding epic of torment and extreme emotion. It is so turbulent and exciting, you are NEVER left thinking the movie is slow or doesn't have a plot. Nolte is a god--I bet he was just playing himself in the movie. Eric Bana was the perfect hulk--his multi-layered character was truly a delight!! This movie KICKS Spider's ass!!」
哈哈...笑死我...他說「任何不喜歡這部電影的人都該處以私刑,我要是在路上堵到你,我會用馬繩來勒死你,你這個無腦猴!」然後讚美了片中幾位演員後,以一句「這部片狠狠踹了蜘蛛人屁股一腳!」作為完美Ending,哈...酷!

一旦有人開罵後,當然也會有人搭腔,於是換到李艷萍出場(所有人物都被「霹靂火」化,是怎樣?),她說了:
「 A classic adaptation whose only fault is that it have obviously pitched too high for the average brain-dead, pop-corn munching morons.」
大意是這樣的,「這部經典的改編作品唯一的缺點,就是對於那些只會猛嚼爆米花的庸俗腦死低能兒來說實在是定位太高格」

大致擷取到這兒,畢竟這樣的口水戰絕對會沒完沒了的,大家看看姑且一笑置之,我始終相信的是,影評或是別人的意見僅供參考,一部電影給你的感覺是很主觀的,沒有素質好或壞,只有感觸多與寡,你覺得呢?
