骑老鹰

Much like last week’s “How It Ends,” “Ride the Eagle” demonstrates that it is indeed possible to make a feature film under strict COVID-19 protocols, but doesn’t seem to have much of an idea of how to make a good one under those circumstances. “Ride the Eagle” feels like everyone involved was more interested in the logistics of the production than the story that they were telling. The end result is a film that will only spark curiosity because of the circumstances surrounding its existence rather than anything about the story itself, unless there's hunger out there for rehashes of “花园州。”

杰克·约翰逊,他与导演特伦特·奥唐奈(Trent O’Donnell)共同撰写了剧本,扮演莱夫(Leif苏珊·萨兰登(Susan Sarandon))最近去世了。这个消息并不完全令人心碎 - 自从她在12岁时抛弃他以来,他就与她疏远了,并拒绝了她最近与他联系的努力。现在,她做了最后的努力,以与他一起修补篱笆,诱使他在优胜美地将她的小屋作为他的继承权。但是,在经过久经考验的独立电影传统中,有一个陷阱 - 他必须前往机舱,并通过霍尼逝世之前录制的录像带来执行一系列任务向他解释,否则他什么也没得到。

莱夫(Leif)和他忠实的犬类伴侣诺拉(Nora)到达机舱后,他找到了盒式录音带,并开始处理手头的任务。起初,他的一部分(和我们的)显然怀疑蜂蜜只是再次与他搞砸了 - 一个要求是划船湖,偷偷溜进房子,以便放下亲吻,另一个要求向他收费只用裸手抓到一条鱼作为晚餐。另一方面,另一个请求是要他称其为“逃脱的人”,并为自己的错误道歉,这使他重新建立了与前女友奥黛丽(D'Arcy Carden)的联系。事实证明,即使是通过电话,他们之间仍然有几个火花,但是奥黛丽犹豫不决,因为她仍然从不良的分手中脱颖而出。某些其他任务本质上更为严重,并迫使公认的Leif终于重新考虑了自己的生活和与母亲的陷入困境。

“骑鹰”的基本问题是,这都不是特别有趣。Watching yet another bland guy in the throes of a seemingly endless adolescence, working through his personal issues and coming to terms with things, is just not quite as compelling as it might have been once upon a time and Johnson and O’Donnell (who previously worked together on the long-running sitcom “New Girl”) don’t really bring anything new to the table. The stabs at quirky humor—such as the conceit that Leif ekes out a living by playing bongos in a band—are just a little too forced to be funny. The film is also pretty thin from a dramatic standpoint, and by the time that Leif—Spoiler Alert!—has his big epiphanies in the final stretch, they don’t really demonstrate the kind of emotional power they were clearly meant to have because it is hard to care about any of them.

约翰逊(Johnson),卡登(Carden)和萨兰登(Sarandon)都是好演员,对手头的材料尽可能多地做,但他们似乎经常沿海地区进行海岸,似乎比让他们的角色成为令人信服的人更容易出门。三维人。唯一设法实现这一目标的人是J.K.席梦思(Simmons)在比赛后期出现,并为诉讼中的生活带来了一些生活,但这几乎完全是由于他能够使他所玩的每个场景几乎都变得绝对真实,无论他正在使用什么。我把那个踢回来 - 扮演诺拉的狗也非常令人印象深刻,通常我不容易受到犬科动物的魅力。这样说 - 在电影中,诺拉独自起飞了,一段时间后,我发现自己希望这部电影选择跟随她,并将她留下不那么有趣的主人。

我想“骑老鹰”并不糟糕 - 这太卑鄙了,无法激发这种情感反应。它最大的犯罪是,整个事情最终只是毫无意义的,并没有为观众提供他们以前从未见过的任何东西,而且从来没有像想像的那样有趣或发人深省。尽管我认为可以从观察到遵循的协议的长度来引起一些兴趣(例如,在任何给定时间内包含在同一框架中包含多个字符的几个场景),无论其上的吸引力可能会迅速消散和消散。一无所有。
