The premiere of CCTV's "Lurkers" is coming! The 6 powerful factions joined forces, and this time Liu Yunlong had an opponent
Say Cao Cao, Cao Cao will arrive.
A few days ago, I also introduced to you 6 domestic spy war dramas to be broadcast in 2023.
I didn't expect it, what to say!
Recently, the 37-episode spy war drama "Lurker" starring Huang Xiaoming and Jiang Xin has new news that this drama has been reviewed.
Friends who know domestic dramas know that a TV series starts from the filing and goes through the trial, basically the last step away from broadcasting. Moreover, generally once the trial is passed, if there is no accident, it will be launched as soon as possible.
Therefore, "Lurker" has passed the review, and the subtext is that the premiere is coming, and it is not far from broadcasting.
1: Liu Yunlong's opponent is coming
I know what you're trying to say.
Only Liu Yunlong himself can surpass Liu Yunlong.
Others, can only be others.
A spy war drama, what are you excited about?
Liu Yunlong's self-directed and self-acted spy war drama can also be understood.
Huang Xiaoming's spy war drama is a little overreacting. Think of Jin Dong, Wang Zhiwen, Zhang Zhijian's "Infernal", before the broadcast, it was also blown in a whistle, and in the end, it was not a slap in the face.
If it were an ordinary spy drama, I might not be so excited.
However, this "Lurker" is a drama that CCTV watches, not an ordinary drama.
Everyone knows that blockbuster dramas are commonplace and have quality assurance. The blockbuster dramas of the past two years have basically been broadcast by CCTV.
In 2020, Zhang Jiayi and Yan Ni's "Loading the Stage".
In 2021, Yu Hewei and Zhang Tong's "Age of Awakening".
In 2022, "The World" by Lei Jiayin and Ding Yongdai.
In the first half of 2023, the two super blockbuster dramas that are popular all over the country, Zhang Songwen and Zhang Yi's "Crazy Race", and Yu Hewei, Zhang Luyi, Lin Yongjian's domestic sci-fi drama "Three-Body Problem", are all CCTV dramas.
With CCTV as a guarantee, I personally predict that the quality of the episodes of this "Lurker" should not be too bad, and there is definitely the capital to wrestle with Liu Yunlong. This time, I had a hunch that Liu Yunlong's opponent was really coming.
2: What are you talking about?
Having said that, what is "Lurkers" about?
Don't worry, before talking about the plot synopsis of "Lurkers", let's first talk about Sun Honglei's "Lurking".
Sun Honglei's "Lurking" is a classic drama in domestic spy war dramas, and when it was broadcast in the early years, it can be said that it was an empty alley and incomparably beautiful.
The story mainly tells the story of Yu Ze becoming a hidden identity, forming a fake couple with the female warrior Cuiping sent by our side, deceiving the enemy, concealing the sky and the sea, passing on intelligence, and making great contributions to the final victory.
Huang Xiaoming's "Lurker" is so similar to Sun Honglei's "Lurking", and the story has many similarities.
Agent Fang Jiashu (played by Huang Xiaoming) has a triple identity.
On the surface, he is an agent of Wang Pseudo 76, licking blood at the knife edge every day, and he is extremely cruel.
In addition, his second identity is that of a military agent. Of course, in fact, his real identity is our agent lurking inside the enemy, codenamed "Cuckoo", who is regarded by the enemy as the biggest threat on the intelligence front.
As the enemy's investigation deepened, the identity of "Cuckoo" encountered the risk of exposure, and although Fang Jiashu had excellent ability and quick reflexes, even he could not completely clear the suspicion of the enemy.
Therefore, in order to continue to hide her identity, our side sent the female warrior Tao Yuling with two children to form a husband and wife with Fang Jiashu to hide people's eyes and ears.
Because of his multiple identities, Fang Jiashu walks on thin ice every day, and he is in various complex and dangerous relationships all day long. Although he was suspected by the enemy, he never revealed his identity.
Moreover, it also skillfully transmitted a lot of information to our side, making great contributions to the final victory of the War of Resistance.
3: Plot highlights, 3 identities, wisdom doubling
Judging from the plot introduced earlier, the story of Huang Xiaoming's "Lurker" and "Lurking" is indeed similar. However, compared to Yu Zecheng, Fang Jiashu not only has an extra layer of identity, his partner Tao Yuling also brought 2 children.
With an increase in identity and 2 more children, the danger will inevitably be directly doubled.
Because, with one more layer of identity, you have to maintain an extra layer of interpersonal relationships, and the more people you contact, the more things you do, the greater the risk of exposure. Moreover, after having 2 more children, Fang Guest will naturally be more inconvenient to move than Yu Zecheng.
In "Lurking", Cuiping can also help Yu Zecheng escape with her own skills, and kill one or two enemies when being tracked.
However, in "Lurker", judging from the trailer released, although Tao Yuling brought 2 children, she can help Fang Jiashu hide her identity very well.
However, Tao Yuling does not seem to be a master of kung fu, and Fang Jiashu may not be able to help him too much when performing tasks. Moreover, once the enemy threatens Fang Jiashu with 2 children, the situation will inevitably become more difficult.
"Lurker" gives people the feeling that if Fang Jiashu wants to perform a good task, it must be double the danger and double the difficulty factor.
And under this super difficulty, Fang Jiashu walks on the tip of the knife all day, how to transmit intelligence for our side, there must be many super difficult wisdom fighting plots. At the same time, this will also be the biggest attraction of this show.
4: Who played it?
The director of "Lurkers" is Gao Han, a well-known director. He has participated in "My Brother's Name is Shunyo" and "Qing Yu Nian".
The screenwriter of the play is Yu Fei, who is more familiar to everyone. His main representative works include the "Six Groups of Serious Cases" series, and he is also the screenwriter of "The Eternal Airwaves", with rich experience in spy war dramas. At the same time, "Circuit Inspection Group" starring Yu Hewei in 2020 is also his work.
The starring roles of the play are Huang Xiaoming and Jiang Xin, and the main supporting roles are Wan Qian, Wu Xiaoliang, Wang Zhifei, Feng Hui and so on.
The protagonist plus supporting roles, a total of 6 actors, not a single traffic star, not a single idol actor, all of them are real acting strength, the lineup is strong and solid.
Among this person, the performance of 4 actors is worth looking forward to.
5: Huang Xiaoming
When it comes to Huang Xiaoming, he is an old acquaintance of everyone, and at the same time, this is not the first time he has participated in spy war dramas.
As early as 2009, he starred in a spy war film "The Wind". In that movie, although Huang Xiaoming played the villain. But the movie version of "The Wind" is still the ceiling of spy movies, and Huang Xiaoming must have learned a lot from this movie.
When he was young, Huang Xiaoming's acting skills were criticized by everyone. But after years of experience, his acting skills have become more and more solid and he has become a strong actor.
In the past two years, whether it is "War of the Roses" in which he participated or "Sideburns Are Not Begonia Red", the audience has a good reputation and has won a lot of praise.
However, to be honest, in recent years, although Huang Xiaoming has shot many works, the real big hit is not one. This cannot be regarded as a success for an actor in his position, but can only be said to have basically completed the task.
Spy war dramas have always been a popular theme in domestic dramas, and they are the most likely to produce explosive hits. This time, Huang Xiaoming starred in the spy war drama "Lurker", I think it is a good opportunity. I hope he can live up to expectations and give everyone an excellent performance.
6: Wang Zhifei
Wang Zhifei has always been a powerful person I like very much.
He has solid line skills, delicate and changeable acting skills, and is able to control various roles. Whether it is a villain or a positive character, he is all at his fingertips. He is best at using his changeable acting skills to express the character characteristics and inner world of the characters.
In the early years, his role as Shang Martingale in "The Fission of the Great Qin Empire" and Chen Junwei in "Silent Witness" were impressive. In 2021, his "Black Storm" cooperated with Sun Honglei began broadcasting.
Wang Zhifei plays Gao Mingyuan in the play. Just when everyone thought that Wang Zhifei might be suppressed by Sun Honglei's aura, he taught everyone a lesson through his own interpretation.
The villain Gao Mingyuan created by Wang Zhifei was not only not suppressed by Sun Honglei, but became the most outstanding character in the whole play, overshadowing Sun Honglei's brilliance. It is said that Zhang Songwen played well in "Crazy", in fact, I think that Gao Mingyuan, created by Wang Zhifei, is a real classic.
This time, Wang Zhifei participated in the spy war drama "Lurker", and I am personally looking forward to his performance.
7: Jiang Xin
In "Lurker", Jiang Xin is also the starring role of the play.
In the impression of many people, it seems that Jiang Xin has only caught fire in recent years. In fact, compared to others, Jiang Xin debuted very early, and she can be seen in many classic domestic dramas. It's just that most of the time, she always plays a supporting role, and many people may not remember it well.
In the early years of "The Legend of Sword and Fairy", she played Jiang Wan'er. At the same time, in "Detective Di Renjie", she also played Fang Yingyu. In addition, in the classic martial arts drama Hu Jun's version of "Dragon Babu", she also played Mu Wanqing.
However, although Jiang Xin often plays supporting roles, her performance is always remarkable, and she has many outstanding performances.
After years of precipitation, Jiang Xin has completely been out of the circle since she participated in "The Legend of Zhen Huan" and "Ode to Joy".
Today's Jiang Xin, not blowing or black, is already a domestic first-line actress.
This time, he participated in the spy war drama "Lurking" and played Tao Yuling. I have a hunch that in the future, many viewers will compare this role with Cuiping played by Yao Chen. I hope that Jiang Xin can perform her own style and continue to amaze the audience.
8: Wu Xiaoliang
The previous mention of "Sweeping Black Storm" and Gao Mingyuan cannot fail to mention Wu Xiaoliang.
To be honest, I was really not familiar with Wu Xiaoliang before. Although I may have seen the film and television dramas he participated in, I never remember this actor very clearly. For example, he once played Cao Poyan in "Chang'an Twelve Hours". If I hadn't read the cast, I wouldn't have recognized it.
However, in "Black Storm", after watching Sun Xing played by him, I completely remembered him. Through his delicate acting skills, he interpreted the villain Sun Xing, the cowardice in his heart, and his almost crazy character, which is expressive and three-dimensional.
It can be seen from the trailer of "Lurker" that Wu Xiaoliang still plays the villain this time. It seems that he and Fang Jiashu, played by Huang Xiaoming, are still a couple. This time, how Wu Xiaoliang will play the villain is worth looking forward to.
9: Say more
In 2023, a total of 3 spy war dramas will be broadcast in the first half of the year.
It seems that there are a lot of quantities, but the quality is difficult to say, and it is impossible to talk about Liu Yunlong as an opponent.
Jin Dong's "Infernal", with the blessing of many old drama bones, was originally optimistic by many people, but the plot rhythm is illogical, resulting in the wisdom fighting plot of the entire drama, chaotic and protracted, which greatly affects the look and feel of the series.
"Thin Ice" is also a gathering of powerful actors, but the performance of the whole drama is too peaceful, and it simply cannot reach the level of high-end spy war dramas.
As for "Dark War", it is even worse, this drama has a sense of obsolescence, whether it is the actor's acting skills or the plot story. It feels more like an old drama, the plot is simple, and it is not a high-level intellectual fight.
"Lurker", I hope it can live up to expectations, otherwise, Liu Yunlong may really be invincible all over the world.
