Can the theme of domestic drama spy warfare still stand up?
If nothing else, in the first half of the year, the left "Thin Ice" and the right "Infernal" really made spy war fans miserable.
This script is so bad that even Hunan Satellite TV and Wang Zhiwen Zhang Zhijian can't hold up, and the two word-of-mouth overturned and lost people to the sky.
Liu Yunlong retired for 3 years, and the spy war dramas have been pulled to this step?
In fact, the spy war film and television dramas in recent years are not "completely destroyed".
For example, "Rebel", which was nominated for Magnolia, and "Above the Cliff", which was nominated by Lao Mozi, can be watched in the huge TV drama market, and there are really few spy movies that can be watched.
Seeing that the single urban drama of the drama to be broadcast is rampant, is it possible that there is not even a spy war theme that can be won in 2023.
Finally, CCTV made a move.
It is rumored that "Lurkers" has been reviewed and will soon meet the audience on CCTV, and Tencent Video simulcast, a full 37 episodes will definitely make the audience addicted.
Whether it is the production team or the cast, all the big coffee gathered, and after more than a year of completion, the audience finally saw hope.
It is no exaggeration to say that this is the only spy war drama I want to chase after Liu Yunlong's "Kite".
This time, we peeked at the leopard from several aspects, whether "Lurkers" has the potential to be a big hit.
The theme of spy warfare, the most important thing is-
1. Producer: Sunli
Magnolia nominated to "defeat" the golden signboard Noon Sun, and Xinli Media, which quietly did great things, has now become one of the giants of the film and television industry.
The producer represents the overall production of a work, and various themes such as "Rebel", "The World", and "Son-in-law" have fully blossomed. In terms of details such as serving the Tao, "Lurker" is definitely not wrong.
2. Director: The lens language is a must
Spy war dramas especially test the director's skills, which is vividly shown from the classic Liu Yunlong and the strange road of taking Wang Zhiwen Jin Dong to overturn.
Director Gao Han who directed "Lurker" is a well-known name in the circle, he has filmed blockbuster works such as "Indelible Fan", participated in the creation of high-scoring films "Floating City Mysteries", "Gold Fan Family", "My Brother is Called Shunyo" and other works, and co-directed the phenomenal hit "Qing Yu Nian".
Whether it is the shaping of the characters, the highlights of the plot, or the lens language, it is completely out of the question.
However, without a good book, no matter how good the director is, there is nowhere to play -
3. Screenwriter: Content is king
Without a good book, no matter how strong the director and actors are, it is all for nothing.
"Lurker" screenwriter Yu Fei, any work is a household name. "The Eternal Airwave", "Six Groups of Serious Cases" and "Patrol Inspection Team", a sword sharpened in a few years, as long as it is shot, it is a boutique.
This configuration is enough to show that "Lurkers" is rushing for the jackpot, and the production team is worried about the plot pulling crotch.
However, no matter how good the script is, only through the hearty play of good actors can the degree of excitement be maximized——
Having seen Lei Jiayin plus Yin Tao Ding Yongdai, Zhu Yilong plus Wang Zhiwen, as well as Zhang Ruoyun, Chen Daoming and Wu Gang, what lineup can Xinli come up with to fill the vacancy in the spy war market?
After reading the cast list of "Lurkers", this big stone in my heart was completely put down.
1.3 powerful actresses
The first one, Jiang Xin (as Tao Yuling).
Which mesozoic actress can "tiger" to the back of the tiger and bear waist to appear on the camera, smeared as black as briquettes, wearing a dirt slagging flower cotton jacket and a big trumpet, throwing the image baggage out of the ground for several miles.
Except for Jiang Xin, no one else can really achieve this level.
When Jiang Xin appeared in "Merit", both fans and passers-by were stunned, how can this big tiger girl see a little female star?
Completely serving the role, Jiang Xin does this to the fullest.
From Concubine Hua in "The Legend of Zhen Huan", Fan Shengmei in "Ode to Joy", to Lin Jingwei in "Elite Lawyer" to Tian Yulan in "Xiaoshede" and Dong Sijia in "Our Marriage".
Jiang Xin has never been kidnapped by the theme, even if he is a supporting role, he can impress the audience and become the most outstanding one in the group portrait.
"Lurker" is actually not Jiang Xin's first attempt at the theme of the War of Resistance, and local dramas such as "Border City", "Sparrow Spring", "Grasshopper" and other local dramas are proof of her breakthrough.
And Tao Yuling is a completely different character.
This woman is an underground worker, but she is completely opposite to the spy heroine in the public impression, she is rustic and has two children.
Judging from the trailer, Jiang Xin has both a rural atmosphere in the play and a sensitivity and firmness as an underground worker, and she is incompatible with the big city Shanghai as soon as she appears, and it is this "custom" and "soil" that has a strong contrast with Tao Yuling's own bravery.
In the short film of less than two minutes, with only a few shots, Jiang Xin's acting skills completely exploded.
was forced by others step by step to have to tense her nerves at all times, and passed the test of death many times, Tao Yuling, who was originally just a country woman, was too difficult to disguise, she had an emotional breakdown and hid in the arms of the male protagonist and cried.
The whole body was paralyzed on the ground, only her head was imprisoned by the male protagonist, at this time she had no strength to say a word, and in just a few seconds, the audience's emotions had been completely driven.
Who read it does not say a word cow b.
The second place, Wan Qian (as Su Yalu).
When Wan Qian's name is mentioned, the first impression of most audiences -
Tepid and not troublesome.
In the lively entertainment industry, Wan Qian is indeed a clear stream, regardless of the scope, does not compete for the camera, and all kinds of themes are captured.
People are publicity and marketing crowding the head to the front row, this sister has quite a "success does not have to be in me, success must have me" realm.
"New World", "County Party Committee Compound", "Crowds", "Thousands of Miles Home" and so on, pick the script with first-class vision.
Even when the whole network denounced the current situation of "acting shell", Wan Qian had already played a new trick in the dubbing circle.
"Lurker" is also a new attempt made by Wan Qian. Seeing her figure in the trailer is completely stunning at a glance, and it turns out that short hair can also be interpreted in different styles.
There is no heavy makeup, just the right light makeup plus clean and unique clothing and hair accessories, a smile on the side face is haunting, quietly enchanting, it is Su Yalu in "Lurker".
However, if it is just that, then this female spy is not enough.
Don't worry, as a female villain in a spy war drama, Su Yalu's heart is cruel, and even Wang Manchun in "The Pretender" has to bow down.
Clean and neat big back, suit and leather gloves, face does not change color, say "sudden" is "sudden", this scene, even has a refreshing ruthlessness, a little too handsome.
The third place, Li Nian (as Zhu Yu).
Remember "Snail House" that once caused a sensation in the entire film and television industry, the innocent and kind Guo Seaweed became Song Siming's mistress step by step, cheating and knowing three times made this character the object of scolding on the whole Internet, but Li Nian took the multifaceted and reality of seaweed to the fullest, which made people sigh.
Li Nian plays Zhu Yu in "Lurker", she seems to be a good guy camp, but she is more mysterious than the previous two female characters, and whether Li Nian can stand out in this game is expected.
2.3 powerful actors
The first one, Huang Xiaoming (as Fang Jiashu).
Impressed by Brother Xiaoming, his performance in the trailer of "Lurker" is not only not a little oily, but the various shots cut can be called acting awards.
After experiencing both physical and mental torture, Fang Jiashu held Tao Yuling without saying a word, but scarlet eyes, tears across his nose, and trembling state have already vividly interpreted the character's emotions on the verge of collapse.
It seems that Brother Xiaoming is going to attack the Emperor Award this time.
The second place, Wu Xiaoliang (as Ye Xingcheng).
Remember Sun Xing in "Black Storm" who made people shudder with a look?
The brother of "Lurker" is playing the head of the secret service again, and his fierce and vicious face is almost rushing off the screen, and he is afraid across the screen.
I dare to assert that after the appearance of "Lurker", Wu Xiaoliang's portrayal of Ye Xingcheng can definitely become popular on the whole network. All his shots in the trailer, no matter what expression makes people chill up, can leave shadows at a glance.
Static stills are ruthless, this treasure actor should always be on fire!
The third, national first-class actor Wang Zhifei (as Lao Zhao).
After two years, Wang Zhifei cooperated with Wu Xiaoliang again, but the two stood on opposite sides in the play.
This time, "Gao Mingyuan" abandoned the secret and sided with our party, and Wu Xiaoliang and Wang Zhifei had a large number of rivalry scenes, and there were too many points to see in the-for-tat.
Powerful actors gathered together, this time CCTV is probably going to be ruthless!
Through the introduction of the roles played by the actors, I believe everyone has some understanding of the plot.
In terms of plot, "Lurker" can be said to integrate the characteristics of the two popular works "Lurking" and "Cliff".
When Fang Jiashu, who was lurking inside the agent, was about to be exposed, Tao Yuling, a child bride from his youth, appeared in time to pretend to be a husband and wife with him, and jointly helped our party obtain intelligence in the midst of danger. Su Yalu, a vicious female agent who secretly loves him, Ye Xingcheng, the sinister and cunning team leader, and Li Lixing, the executioner, etc., how will this fake couple maneuver among various dangerous people and successfully obtain useful information while protecting their identity?
This setting is exciting just to listen to.
Almost all the explosive points of suspense spy warfare, from the production team to the cast to the plot design, the emergence of "Lurker" fully shows CCTV's determination to seek a breakthrough in the theme of spy warfare.
It seems that the show is about to begin.
In today's domestic drama market, spy war works seem to have a fault, and there are very few "Rebels" that can be produced, and every bad drama appears The audience can't wait to immediately take out the old drama to wash their eyes.
"Lurkers" really has the potential to become another classic among classics after "Kite".
"I wish the good days would come soon"
"It will come, this day will definitely come."
Therefore, when a new high-reputation spy war drama will come, and whether "Lurker" can withstand CCTV's expectations, we will wait and see.
Are you looking forward to the show?
