Rise of the APES

"Tell me, though...

Does man, that marvel of the universe,

that glorious paradox who has sent me to the stars,

still make war against his brother, keep his neighbor's children starving?"

這是1968 planet of apes的一開始的開頭

"All the time, it was...

We finally really did it.

You maniacs!

You blew it up!

God damn you!

God damn you all to hell!"

這是最後的結局

在即使是在2000年代,看到我結局的我,還是冷不防的起雞皮疙瘩

電影中,經過了幾百年後,人類還是自我毀滅了

而在人猿的聖經中,他們留下了這句話

"Beware the beast man, for he is the devil's pawn.

Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed.

Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land.''

Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours.

Shun him. Drive him back into his jungle lair.''

For he is the harbinger of death."

這樣的結局,在1968年那冷戰時期,人類隨時都有可能因核子大戰,而全部毀滅,造成這部片的經典地位

而接下來的幾年就是所謂的五部曲

  1. Planet of the Apes (1968)
  2. Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970)
  3. Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971)
  4. Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972)
  5. Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973)

2011年Rise of the apes 感覺起來就是Planet of the apes 的前傳

裡面有許多向前五部曲致敬的影子,比如太空梭消失(大概是第一部曲的那堆人吧),Caesar這個名字,Bright Eyes這個名字,甚至連演員的名字(Caesar在收容所認識的紅毛猩猩的演員名字為1968年演紅毛猩猩的演員的名字)

"Caesar is home",大概是裡面最震撼人的台詞,Caesar從"Who am I?"到"What I should do for them?"到最後的"Caesar
is home",也從剛開始的衝動的保護親人,到後面的計畫型的攻擊,不殺人的原則,一步一步的轉變成熟,大概也串上了後來人類與猿猴是可以和平相處的可能性。

Rise of the apes 是一個讓你容易入門及中毒的猿猴五部曲,非常建議一看,比起美國隊長的老梗真是好太多了

值得我們省思的是,貪婪,自私,不尊重大自然,不尊重生命的我們,是不是有天也會因為如此而自取滅亡?
