Hollywood "stealing" internal entertainment? Plummeting 300 million, the box office miracle was urged by the audience to finish, I really haven't seen it
Don't rush, don't rush.
I have gone to the theater non-stop to see it, and I have watched the polar debate in the Douban comment area.
Seeing its rating, it dropped from 7.0 to 6.7 (and it will fall by sight).
It's time to talk about Sir's perception.
This one doesn't seem to have much expectations, and it seems to be a little expectant.
The year was thought to be the most blockbuster Hollywood blockbuster, the film industry is no longer evergreen:
Fast and Furious 10
What a long farewell.
Emotional fans are also about to lose patience.
Compared with the first-day box office of the previous films, "Super 8" is 400 million, "Super 9" and the extra-episode "Special Operation" are both 300 million.
Now "Fast 10" has fallen to 100 million.
As early as the release of "Super 8", Vin Diesel sent such a picture to announce the curtain call plan of the series, which is divided into "three parts":
In 2021, it was announced that "Super 10" will be released in two parts.
By the premiere this year, Vin Diesel has a new plan, and "Super 10" will be followed by "Super 11" and "Super 12" The series will really end...
(You'd better say it this time to be true.) ）
Perhaps the series does need enough foreshadowing to say goodbye to fans.
But from the box office, it seems to have declined and exhausted, and the increased length has not brought more emotional concentration to fans.
Instead, it dilutes the feelings.
Or the familiar recipe:
The feelings are still there.
Heaven and earth, rushing, frying, fighting, the refreshing feeling is also real.
But no matter how gorgeous the cool film, it is time to turn around gorgeously.
Cool to death, don't be so cool next time
An oil poem sums up the story of "Super 10":
You shoot one, I shoot one, hommie, bro, family;
The enemies and the dead are all gathered, and they can't do the sea king's crazy criticism;
Wine pool meat forest Ferrari, Roman Rio and Antarctica;
Marvel Super English to the side,
It is up to Van D to save the planet.
Call it a day.
Don't blame Sir for describing it so sloppily, he learned it all from "Super 10".
I also blame myself for not doing enough homework before I went to see it, and after watching it for more than a hundred minutes, I still estimated it.
Is this big bang endless?
Why haven't those waves of centaurs converged?
Why did Gal Gadot just appear, wouldn't it take another half an hour?
Ha, it turns out that this is just the upper part.
Wait a minute.
Sir thought that since it was the end trilogy of "Super 10", "Super 11" and "Super 12", the upper and lower parts of the original planned "Super 10" would be merged into one.
I didn't expect it to be released in parts? That is, actually the end of the quadrilogy?
(For a moment, Sir remembered himself when he wrote the word count.) ）
Then see how this story ends.
Because the curtain is coming to an end, all the previous characters have returned.
In "Super 8", kill Donald's ex-girlfriend, his son's mother's villain Seifer.
In this part, because he has the same enemy as Donald, he is a friend and a united front with his family.
Paul Walker's daughter, Meadow Ryan, came to make a cameo appearance as a tool man flight attendant who provided key props.
As for who this character really is, there is no explanation, and there is no need to explain.
Anyway, the family each "knows a guy" and can provide decisive help when there is no rut.
In addition, Guo Dasen returns as the guy that Han knows in the UK.
The soy sauce character has stamina in "11".
If you want to see Gadot and Dwayne Johnson, you have to wait until the next one.
The villain this time is the son of the Brazilian gang leader who was killed by Donald in "Fast 5", Dante (Jason Momoa).
It can be said that in terms of character shaping, this antisocial personality big bad is the highlight of this film.
There are comments that he has a clown smell on him, which is not an exaggeration.
He is different from the gang bosses who want to fight for power and power in the past, or the devils who directly want to rule the world.
His goal is simple.
Even if the rain turns the city upside down, I'm going to kill you, Boss Don.
I have to torture you before I kill you.
The black pot will carry you, the money in your account will be transferred to you, and your family members will be killed one by one.
Who let you kill my daddy – Although he kills and sets fires, he is also a good daddy.
Action scenes, very high concentration.
The frequency of a dozen in three minutes, a rush in five minutes, and a fry in ten minutes.
As soon as Han and Guo Dasen met, they fought.
Seifer and Letty managed to escape from the prison, did not run first, and fought.
Roman city, fried.
Carry a folding glider with you, small meaning.
Driving down from an airplane, trivial.
Drive to destroy two helicopters, little meaning.
(I'm afraid it's not stealing the bridge of pistols hitting planes in our anti-Japanese drama)
Spinning from the window of one car at high speed, jumping into another car, small meaning.
They are accompanied by passionate music that has hardly stopped from beginning to end.
Dazzling and deafening.
However, this one did not hit Mars for the time being.
Maybe fans who like big scenes will also enjoy watching it.
But for two hours of watching the movie, for Sir, the excitement was theirs, and I only felt tired.
"Super 10" is slightly inferior to "Super 9" in terms of outrageous degree of action scenes, but it is basically the same.
In the blunt expression of the theme of "family", it is more serious than "Super 9".
Standing on the streets and going out into the universe
At the beginning, "Fast and Furious" was not like this at all.
Around the turn of the millennium, street racing was a hobby of young Americans, who circled the carnival with stolen or fake signs.
A few miles in Los Angeles and downtown New York are illegal racetracks, but also roads to show individuality and freedom.
Fashionably dressed and sexy men and women gather around rows of colorful modified cars.
The buzzing engine sound is the best aphrodisiac.
Fast and Furious (2001) was born in this context.
The cost of $38 million, after all, did not plan to make much of a battle:
A police and bandit film in which a beautiful male police detective undercover speeding car thief gang, and the strong man boss has a brotherly love, and finally faces the dilemma of love and reason.
Car chase scenes are not uncommon, but the movie has a racing scene that is rare at the time.
They change gears with silky smoothness and a special flavor.
They speak technical terms, which are interesting and fresh enough.
Ignition, starting, and speeding up to become a realistic image.
The speed of the car is so fast that it is impossible to see the surroundings clearly, and the real scene tends to be anime.
Accompanied by the muscles of macho men and the buttocks of beautiful women, it is also dazzling.
The truth is, the movie is stretched.
If the drag racing material is not enough shot, the lens is blurry quickly.
Paul Walker wrote many of his own fight scenes.
There are too few cars, so I will collect them online.
Some expensive engines, even replaced with a photo.
Insulated with tall, high-tech, high-concept.
But "Super 1" successfully showed the street culture of the United States in an all-round way to the public.
The film exceeded 40 million box office in its first week and eventually swept 200 million worldwide.
The local box office of 140 million surpassed the then A-list star Angelina Jolie's "Tomb Raider".
And Julie the year before, just had partner Nicolas Cage's racing drama "60 Seconds" released.
But unlike the all-white, all-luxury car lineup of "Speed", in addition to Paul Walker, most of the other actors in "Super 1" are minorities, and there are very few luxury cars.
The more colored, the more proud, the more subordinate, the more beautiful.
According to the survey, "Super 1" is popular with many young people under the age of 25, and the movie undoubtedly opens up a B-side of their lives that is different from their daily lives.
△ There is also Ouyang Jing in "Super 2"
By the time of "Super 3: Tokyo Drift", the most sought after movie by car fans, it is almost a pure racing film (the first two are the basis of police and gangster films).
Drag racing skills and drift racing come from real racers.
But perhaps due to various reasons such as the change of starring actors and fierce market competition, the box office is not good.
Police and bandit films, aesthetic fatigue.
Pure racing films, also encountered Waterloo.
"Quick" has reached a critical moment to think about the direction of development.
△ "Super 3" has a glimpse of his wife and husband Mu Cong
At that time, Vin Diesel failed miserably at the box office of "Star Legends 2" and "Convict Me" and reached a career bottleneck.
Previously so proud that he was unwilling to make a sequel to "Fast Furious", he returned to the film as a producer.
The previous title, "The Fast and the Furious," was bought from a 1954 film.
The fourth part, the name is changed and the surname is restarted, as "Fast & Furious".
He became the first protagonist.
Vin Diesel wanted to make the story bigger, and director Justin Lin worked how to make big scenes.
So, you'll see that Donald gets stuck and gets under the burning tanker.
From "Super 4", the film gradually transformed into a standard Hollywood industrial blockbuster, with a cost of $85 million and a global box office of 363 million.
And perhaps it was from this one that "Fast Furious" gradually went outrageous.
Donald Boss's girlfriend was shot and killed after a car accident.
Late at night, he was at the scene of the accident, on a dim street lamp, with only a few ruts and dirt prints.
You can see the whole picture of the accident.
For example, the anti-gravity and anti-physics scenes that were later criticized have also appeared in "Fast 4".
Ignite the car with a lighter to deflate, but nitric oxide cannot burn at room temperature.
Of course, viewers rarely pay attention to these. (Well, Sir also found out by looking up the information)
It's getting faster and faster.
The protagonist is becoming more and more versatile.
The scene became more and more amazing.
But at least at the time, such a shift in content worked, in activating and continuing the life of this IP.
"Super 5" is the culmination of the whole series and the best rated one.
Important characters that have appeared before, assembled for the first time.
There is also a tough opponent who can compete with Donald.
Hobbes, played by Dwayne Johnson, FBI, is brilliant and extraordinary, bigger than Vin Diesel.
The "family" meme has not yet been said to be rotten, unity, fraternity, common hatred, warmth, and tragedy.
Fights, shootouts, car chases, more and more.
"Walking the Safe" is the creation of this film ("Super 10" begins with this).
In this real shoot, 50 police cars were scrapped.
In the big-budget genre films, "Super 5" is a model, and the market has proved its success, with the box office exceeding 200 million in North America and more than 600 million worldwide.
But the "racing" element is pitifully scarce.
Although the fan base has expanded exponentially since this one, "Fast and Furious" has truly become a cash cow for the world.
But it also said goodbye to its "street", "niche" and "sub" side.
In "Super 6", the speeding family becomes a "supernumerary policeman" who is called up to deal with international important cases.
(So why didn't the FBI look for agents and look for these racers?) ）
Planes, tanks, artillery, all in battle.
Donald's family has become an omnipotent "family man".
When the series fell into weakness.
The unexpected death of starring Paul Walker.
The main sentiment "Super 7", with a box office of 1.5 billion, is still the 11th highest box office revenue in the world.
Under Wen Ziren's hand, he drove over the Burj Khalifa to amaze the audience.
Despite the suspicion of consuming the dead, the farewell at the end of the film and the theme song "See you again" earned enough tears.
By "Super 8", the peak has passed.
The North American box office in its first week fell 30% from its predecessor, but its super inertia and fan stickiness still brought it $1.238 billion in global box office.
At this time, "Fast and Furious" has been racing all the way on the outrageous road, and it can't stop the car.
But even if the big scene is comparable to a science fiction movie, no matter how realistic the explosion is, it cannot save the increasingly thin plot and verbal emotions.
One is more speculative than the other.
But no matter how many special effects there are, it is also a strong scene, because the core feelings have been quietly replaced.
Today, the "Fast and Furious: Special Ops" and streaming series "Fast and Furious: Agent Speeder" have been tested in the waters, but the response to the "Fast and Furious" series has been mediocre.
While continuing to expand the cinematic universe, there is no different way out to keep this IP evergreen.
If it is fresh, niche, and cool, it brings the popularity of "Super 1".
After the transformation, in order to become bigger and stronger, it fell into an endless cycle of constantly raising the audience's aesthetic threshold and unable to further satisfy everyone's curiosity mentality.
At one time, it was the pioneer of new trends.
Or the benchmark for genre film texture.
And when it gradually distances itself from these two qualities, it is inevitable to be abandoned by the former audience.
Part company with
In fact, since the 2019 side story "Quick and Furious: Special Ops", the reputation of this series has seriously declined.
This one features two popular male partners, FBI agent Hobbs and former British agent Sean (played by Guo Dasen) as the protagonists.
Because of an impending biovirus crisis, they teamed up to go to a technology company.
Their enemies are not black policemen, gangsters, madmen ...
It's a genetically modified black superman.
Physical strength, wisdom, sensitivity, combat effectiveness, and various indicators are far beyond ordinary humans.
Two males, Hobbs falls in love with Sean's sister, a group of people are united like family, and everything is like a copy of "Fast Furious".
But the core elements of the "Furous" series are missing.
The central characters of "Fast Furious" are family members led by Donald and Brian, who transcend blood ties.
Everyone in the cast is not a top star.
And the family heroes they combined together formed a huge team effect under the "Fast Furious" signboard.
But the core cohesion of this big family was originally that they were all underground racing enthusiasts.
Racing is their way of gaining self-esteem, self-esteem and success.
It is also the bond they use to build emotions.
As the "Fast Furious" series later in the series, the racing elements became weaker and weaker, and more and more decent and villains joined the group.
The cohesion of the "family" becomes banal.
Their motives for each act also become strange.
Is it up to them to save the world just because they got their driver's license earlier?
As a result, this originally unique series has become a blurred one like many other Hollywood blockbusters.
There is no shortage of big scenes of car chases and fights in all blockbusters, why are they?
Both in terms of character traits.
Ethan Hunt's all-around in "Mission Impossible", John McCarlan's combat power in "Die Hard".
The solid sense of reality and sharp editing in "Spy", the thick British fan in "Ace Agent".
Or in terms of accuracy in targeting a core niche audience.
Parkour elements in "Extreme Agents", magic elements in "Shocking Bandits".
You will find that the speeders who are no longer racing are no more glamorous than the protagonists in any blockbuster.
The premise of the existence of racing elements is the reality of the film texture.
The car is the most common means of transportation.
Racing is also an extreme sport that exists in reality.
It's beautiful because it has a thriller and excitement that people can actually imagine.
The racing car in the movie, unlike many other big scenes, is not fake at first glance, but between the truth and fakeness that makes the audience half-believe.
To some extent, the first three films of "Fast and Furious" still have a bit of a sports film feeling.
It evokes eagerness and courage, and a feeling that cannot be yearned for.
Let me ask, which audience saw this dashing position and didn't think that if only I could be like this (crazy).
Later "Quick" no longer has its own characteristics.
And when more and more breaking the laws of physics began to exist in the feature series, biochemical mutants appeared in the outer chapter.
It was doomed to abandon its distinctive roots.
In "Super 7" and "Super 10", the car gets off the transport plane.
In "Super 8", nuclear submarine battle.
"Super 9" plane rescue, flying into space, magnets...
Its big scenes are gradually dramatized and short videos.
Simply capturing a clip is visually striking enough.
But there is no longer the real novelty of "Fast 1", when nitrogen is sprayed, like blood gushing.
And like the first three, the throbbing brought about by the roaring engine sound, the swaying rap rhythm, and the sweat of the muscles.
The wheels drive off the ground.
The Donald family who have a previous conviction and come from the bottom but have justice.
Become rich, great, become a superhero.
"Fast and Furious" has become assembly-line, cookie-cutter, and forgettable.
But perhaps, when it comes back to life from Super 4, everything is inevitable now.
This is probably the fate of every series of movies.
They have accompanied us on a journey through life.
And the heroes grow, swell, age.
Memories stay in their brightest moments.
