著住條裙睇《通天奇兵》(The A-Team)


從來不是槍戰片迷. 我知道有人愛《色慾都市》(Sex and the City) , 在我心目中卻比不上《通天奇兵》(The A-Team). 槍林彈雨勝過華衣美服? 豈只勝之一籌, 對我來說, 《通天奇兵》簡直是我童年時的電視奶水精華. 亞洲電視金錢台在80年代中曾熱播《通天奇兵》電視劇, 我家祖孫三代 (祖父, 父親, 我) 都是捧場客.




《通天奇兵》講述四個越戰軍人被誣陷違反軍紀, 其中三人包括水牛 (John "Hannibal" Smith, George Peppard) 、霹靂仔 (Templeton"Faceman" Peck, Dirk Benidict) 、鈍胎 (Bosco Albert "B.A." (Bad Attitude) Baracus , Mr.T) 救出被困瘋人院的喪榮 ( H. M. "Howling Mad" Murdock, Dwight Schultz) , 自此四人成為『If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire ...the A-Team』.



電視劇《通天奇兵》四虎將




著名的《通天奇兵》(A-Team) 片頭




《通天奇兵》總算是上世紀經典電視劇之一, 新生代對原裝正版一無所知 (有心人在Youtube放了一些電視片段), 一樣不妨礙觀影. (估計在戲院中, 部份三十出頭的觀眾也在童年時看過《通天奇兵》) 電影將越戰背景改為布殊攻打伊拉克後, 切合了改朝換代, 官能刺激也無限倍增. 從前《通天奇兵》最耍家的場面只是翻車爆破, 現在連坦克車也可以打到上高空. 影片剪接速度也快得無以形容, 稍不專心, 便會錯過突如其來的精彩場面 (還是充滿監製Ridley & Tony Scott 的風格?)、殺個措手不及, 令人拍爛手掌的Gag位. 至於劇情就不方便多講, 唯有入場才能親身感受.



選角上, 影片既要盡量重拾電視劇的神韻, 又要物色適合擔任的演員. 四位角色都栩栩如生: 溫文的Liam Neeson化身深謀遠慮的軍佬水牛、比舊版還要帥 (愈加走紅) 的霹靂仔 Bradley CooperSharlto Copley不及初代喪榮般擁有滑稽外表, 但其喪爆功力不惶多讓、外形粗獷惡到死, 骨子裡卻有時膽小如鼠的鈍胎, Quinton Jackson 也恰如其份, 但 Mr.T的魔咒始終還有影響力, 到底是他演繹得好, 還是造型居功至偉, 就由觀眾定奪. 另外Patrick Wilson飾演陰濕賤格的中情局人員、影片唯一女角Jessica Biel (霹靂仔前度女友), 都各有特色.




《通天奇兵》最令人印象深刻的角色是雞冠Punk頭、滿身粗金錬的鈍胎 (貼切到極! 八兩金唔該行開) . Mr.T. 原是名人保鑣 (客戶包括拳王阿里, Michael Jackson和Diana Ross) 因樣貌太過突出被星探發掘, 但Mr.T並不十分熱衷演戲, 私底下是虔誠教徒. Mr.T曾患上癌症, 近年曾被傳已死, 其實尚在人間, 認真大吉利是! 這次只有Dirk Benedict和Dwight Scultz在片末亮相 (事後Dirk Benedict揚言後悔被人擺上台) , Mr.T則以影片過於渲染性與暴力, 不忠於原著為理由而推辭.

完場時聽到有男觀眾失望地說: 怎麼沒有水牛(新舊對照)? 原本的製作單位, 廿年前確是計劃由四位通天奇兵出演電影版. 老兄, George Peppard已於94年去世. 這也是《通天奇兵》多年來沒能拍得成電影版的其中一個理由. (心水清的影迷, 大概知道他就是《珠光寶氣》Breaksfast at Tiffany's的男主角)

Roger Ebert對《通天奇兵》又彈又踩: 俾四粒星半, 又認為影片是爛攤子, 為懲罰觀眾而設. 這要視乎觀眾自己的要求. 像我, 為滿足童年的電視情意結, 《通天奇兵》2010 絕對收貨有餘.

哈哈,點解叫「著住條裙」呢?

Agnes艾麗絲謝 說...

因為我真係著住條裙去睇槍戰片嘛 :)

其實我本人一向唔喜歡睇呢種戲, 你可想而知《通天奇兵》呢套戲對我幾咁重要.

李卓倫 說...

睇了A-TEAM, 電影版水牛不似電視版識易容術. 原本以為最尾MR.T會出現, 點知無, OH!

Agnes艾麗絲謝 說...

李卓倫: 我都留意到水牛冇易容, 只係染左頭髮暪天過海, 但佢都忠於原著, 狂食雪茄~

至於Mr T,佢已經係Born Again Christian, 冇興趣再亮相. 新鈍胎始終不如舊鈍胎, 你知啦, Mr.T一出場就拆屋拆門嘛. 不過~新鈍胎架車俾喪榮整爛, 哇一聲喊哂口, 真係好好笑...

grace 說...

我都睇左,對套片我絕對收貨.娛樂性一流,又有eye candy(Bradley Cooper實在太靚仔),何樂而不為.^^
Mr.T無論造型外表太神級,因此對新鈍胎亦不能太苛刻.反而佢有股純真既氣質係舊版無既.

3D個PART 笑死我.^ ^

當年'通天奇兵'最有趣之處,莫過於喪榮與鈍胎二人互相整到呱呱噪;但當面對壞人及危急關頭時,四人都能齊心合力,就地取材,左塔右砌,變出必勝絕招,打抵敵人.

Agnes艾麗絲謝 說...

Grace: 當年我阿爺老豆就係鍾意鈍胎夠型! 新鈍胎就要人氹 (喪榮氹佢食mum mum!)!

匿名: That's why I like A-Team! 不枉等左咁多年.

Tony 說...

真係不枉等咗咁多年.
我都係食通天奇兵奶水大的.
您話情意結又好, 乜都好.
我覺得呢套戲絶對收貨.
保留舊有神韻又有新野玩...
正!
一定買返隻Blu-Ray儲.
因為我已經儲了一套電視版DVD啦...
有時得閒都會攞出來欣賞.
最鍾意80年代那份純真及正義感.

希望會有續集!

Agnes艾麗絲謝 說...

Tony: 萬分同意. 其實套戲拍唔拍續集都差唔多, 但睇黎係事在必行, 我亦好歡迎, 只要Bradley Cooper繼續有型, 哈~
