Ⅰ 電影後天

《後天》是大陸上映時根據電影原名《The Day After Tomorrow》的直譯,很爛的翻譯。
在台灣翻譯成《明日之後》,在香港翻譯為《末日浩劫》。

老生個人意見台灣版寓意最為深刻,其次為香港版,片名夠直觀刺激,最差的就是大陸版了。

英文名: The Day After Tomorrow

中文名: 後天 | 末日浩劫 | 末日世界 | 明日過後 | 明日之後

Ⅱ 後天 英文簡介

The Day After Tomorrow is a 2004 American science-fiction disaster film that depicts the catastrophic effects of global warming in a series of extreme weather events that usher in a new ice age. It did well at the box office, grossing $542,771,772 internationally. Domestically, it is the sixth highest grossing movie not to be #1 in the US box office (behind My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Sherlock Holmes, and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs), but worldwide, it is second behind only Ice Age 3. The movie was filmed in Montreal, and is the highest grossing Hollywood film in history to be filmed in Canada (if adjusted for inflation).

The hero of this movie,Jack Hall, (Dennis Quaid) is a paleoclimatologist who is on an expedition in Antarctica with two colleagues, Frank (Jay O. Sanders) and Jason (Dash Mihok), drilling for ice core samples on the Larsen Ice Shelf for the NOAA when the ice shelf breaks off from the rest of the continent, and Jack almost falls to his death. Jack presents his findings on global warming at a United Nations conference in New Delhi where diplomats, including the Vice President of the United States, (Kenneth Welsh), are unconvinced by Jack's theory.

However, Jack's concerns resonate with Professor Terry Rapson (Ian Holm) of the Hedland Climate Research Centre in Scotland. Two buoys in the North Atlantic simultaneously show a massive drop in the ocean temperature, and Rapson concludes that melting of the polar ice has begun disrupting the North Atlantic current. He contacts Jack, whose paleoclimatological weather model holds reconstructional data of the climate change that caused the first Ice Age, to predict what will happen. Jack believed that the events would not happen for a hundred or a thousand years, but he, Frank, Jason, and NASA's meteorologist Janet Tokada (Tamlyn Tomita) build a forecast model with his, Rapson's, and Tokada's data.

Across the world, violent weather causes mass destruction, including a snowstorm greatly impacting New Delhi, a hailstorm ultimately destroying Tokyo, Japan, and a large outbreak of three F-5 tornadoes wrecking Los Angeles. The U.S. President (Perry King), authorizes the FAA to suspend air traffic over the United States e to severe turbulence. As three RAF helicopters fly to evacuate the British Royal Family, they enter the eye of a very massive hurricane-like superstorm, that causes a temperature drop below −150 °F (−101.1 °C) that freezes their fuel lines and rotors, causing them to crash down and quickly freeze to death.

Meanwhile, Jack's son, Sam, (Jake Gyllenhaal) is in New York City for an academic competition with his friends Brian and Laura (Arjay Smith and Emmy Rossum), where they also befriend a student named J.D. On the flight over, there is severe turbelence, and Sam grabs Laura's hand in fright. During the competition, the weather becomes massively violent with intense winds and flooding rains. Sam calls his father, making a promise to be on the next train home. Unfortunately, the storm worsens, forcing subways and Grand Central Station to close. As the storm worsens in Manhattan, a tidal wave of almost 40 feet above sea level (about half the height of the Statue of Liberty) impacts the island, causing major flooding. Sam and his friends are able to seek refuge in the New York Public Library.

Survivors in the Northern United States are forced to flee south, with some Americans illegally crossing the border into Mexico. After advising the Executive Office of the President of the United States to evacuate half the country, Jack sets off for Manhattan to find his son, accompanied by Frank and Jason. Their truck crashes into a snow-covered tractor-trailer just past Philadelphia, so the group continues on snowshoes. During the journey, Frank falls through the glass roof of a snowbound shopping mall. As Jason and Jack try to pull Frank up, the glass under them continues to crack; Frank sacrifices himself by cutting the rope. The U.S. President's helicopter is fatally caught in the superstorm, leaving the U.S. Vice President in charge.

Inside the library, Sam advises everyone of his father's instruction to stay indoors. Few listen, and the small group that remains burns books to keep warm and breaks the library's vending machine for food. Laura is afflicted with blood poisoning, so Sam, Brian, and J.D. must search for penicillin in a Russian cargo ship that drifted inland, and are attacked by escaped wolves from the New York Zoo. The eye of the superstorm begins to pass over the city with its −150 °F (−101.1 °C) temperatures, and the entire New York City skyline begins to freeze. The three return to the library with medicine, food, and supplies, making it to safety.

During the deep freeze, Jack and Jason take shelter in an abandoned Wendy's, then resume their journey after the storm dissipates, finally arriving in New York City. They find the library buried in snow, but find Sam's group alive and are rescued by Chinook helicopters. The new President orders search and rescue teams to look for other survivors, having been given hope by the survival of Sam's group. The movie concludes with two astronauts looking down at Earth from the International Space Station, showing most of the northern hemisphere covered in ice, and a major rection in pollution.

synopsis 內容大綱
What if we are on the brink of a new Ice Age? This is the question that haunts climatologic Jack Hall. Hall's research indicates that global warming could trigger an abrupt and catastrophic shift in the planet's climate. While Jack warns the White House of the impending climate shift, his 17 year-old son Sam finds himself trapped in New York City where he and some friends have been competing in a high school academic competition. He must now cope with the severe flooding and plummeting temperatures in Manhattan. Having taken refuge inside the Manhattan Public Library, Sam manages to reach his father by phone. Jack only has time for one warning: stay inside at all costs. As full-scale, massive evacuations to the south begin, Jack heads north to New York City to save Sam. But not even Jack is prepared for what is about to happen--to him, to his son, and to his planet.

Ⅳ 一篇英文電影評論 <<後天>>

1. This movie takes a big-budget, special-effects-filled look at what the world would look like if the greenhouse effect and global warming continued at such levels that they resulted in worldwide catastrophe and disaster, including multiple hurricanes, tornadoes, tidal waves, floods and the beginning of the next Ice Age. At the center of the story is a paleoclimatologist (a scientist who studies the ways weather patterns changed in the past), Professor Jack Hall (Quaid), who tries to save the world from the effects of global warming while also trying to get to his son, Sam (Gyllenhaal), who was in New York City as part of a scholastic competition, when the city was overwhelmed by the chilling beginnings of the new Ice Age. In addition to all of the other challenges Dr. Hall faces, he's also going against the flow as humanity races south to warmer climes, and he's nearly the only one going north...

2. When global warming causes world wide disasters and leads to an ice age, a climatologist named Jack Hall tries to rescue his son Sam who is trapped in New York. Jack must go from Washington D.C. to New York, but on the way some things happen. Can Jack rescue his son?

3. We humans are such sinners. We pillage and plunder our planet's natural resources, carelessly and indignantly burn our fossil fuels, and throw caution to the wind for our wanton irresponsiblity.

Well, to coin a classic phrase, "It's not nice to fool Mother Nature." And she's one broad you don't dare want to mess with, as the disaster-laden THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW attests. In a movie that must have environmentalists and tree huggers worldwide grinning from pierced ear to pierced ear, we humans are forced at last to atone for the sin of global warming--a sin that melts the polar caps and brings on another Ice Age (in about the time it takes to play a baseball game).

Forget the plot. It's worse than bad--it's trite, banal, hackneyed, threadbare, and worn-out all rolled into one. Dennis Quaid is the climatologist who predicts doom but is subsequently ignored by his greedy government; he also has a son who ends up trapped in New York. The beautiful Sela Ward plays the standard this-disaster-epic-must-have-a-female-lead-who-spends-her-time-wringing-her-hands-and-looking-worried-and-then-cries part. Ian Holm, for goodness sake, is Bilbo Baggins, not some Scottish scientist about to go into the deep freeze, and Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays Quaid's and Ward's son, has a constant smirk on his face that I could never figure out.

As I said, forget the plot. This movie's strength is its visual onslaught of destruction and disaster on a global scale--from tornadoes ravaging Los Angeles (Why do LA TV reporters feel compelled to cover a twister a stone's throw away on live TV?) to three cataclysmic "blizzard hurricanes" that devour the Northern Hemisphere. The special effects are well-done, and jarring; seeing a huge tidal wave overtake the Statue of Liberty and then sweep relentlessly into Manhattan (Why didn't Brooklyn and Queens get equal time?) is bone-chilling. Throw in a pack of hungry wolves escaped from the zoo and an eye of each storm that plunges the temperature minus 150 degrees in a matter of seconds, and you've got a virtual kitchen sink of gloom and doom. Our fearless government reluctantly acts; in a huge twist of irony, the U.S. is evacuated, with its citizens streaming into Mexico, and the northern states take on a popsicle effect. It's all great fun to watch.

THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW succeeds on the visual, and fails dismally on everything else. Now I've got to go get my twelve-pack out of the freezer. I want to see what frozen beer tastes like.

4. There's no two ways about it...filmmaker Roland Emmerich really despises New York...three of his last four films depict some level of destruction within the Big Apple. Why does he hate it so? I have no idea, but he also doesn't seem all that found of Los Angeles, either...

The Day After Tomorrow (2004), written, proced and directed by Roland Emmerich stars Dennis Quaid (who'd been having a really decent run of good films, up until now, that is...), and Jake Gyllenhaal, who seems to bounce between really good movies (Donnie Darko) to really lousy ones (Bubble Boy, Highway). Also appearing is Emmy Rossum (who bares a remarkable resemblance, at times, to American Pie's Elizabeth Shannon), Jay O. Sanders (Daylight), Perry King (The Lords of Flatbush), Kenneth Walsh (Miracle), Sela `yowsa, yowsa' Ward, and Ian `Bilbo Baggins' Holm.

Okay...Jack Hall (Quaid) is a paleoclimatologist...what's that, you say? Well, apparently it's someone who studies the weather of the past, using ice core samples from the artic and sophisticated computer programs...more or less a glorified weatherman. During his research, he's found evidence to support the world is soon (soon meaning anywhere from 100 to 1,000 years) heading for another ice age, but no one is taking him too seriously, especially not the haughty Vice President (Walsh), probably e to the fact the weather reports we get on the TV are usually only right about half the time, so why should we jump through hoops for this clown? Surprise, surprise, it turns out Walsh is right (but his timing is way off...typical weatherman) as the poopie hits the fan...big time. Hail the size of footballs in Japan, tornadoes in LA, tide waves and crazy snow in New York (haven't they suffered enough?), all resulting in a global climate change, which doesn't sound all that bad, but basically the entire northern hemisphere is buried under ice and snow...a lot of ice and snow...and temperatures are dropping. Oh why didn't they listen to Hall? The fools...the frozen fools...

I will say this...The Day After Tomorrow sported some of the best special effects I've seen in awhile. The wide scale destruction of major cities was very intense (Irwin Allen, the master of disaster, the man who brought us all those wonderful 70's disaster movie, would have been proud)...also, I thought the acting was passable, which is sad, given the experienced cast involved, but they were just doing what they were told. If I were to rate this film on the special effects alone, it would be five stars, but I have to also consider the other aspects, the story, the dialog and such. It's these elements (or lack of) that ultimately derailed the film, for me at least. Emmerich seems to try and dazzle the audience with glossy special effects in hope we won't put too much thought into all the holes, large and small, that riddle the plot. I remember when I saw Emmerich's Independence Day (1996) for the first time, I was really taken with the film, but subsequent viewings revealed the paper thin construction, allowing the story to collapse in on itself...here, I need not watch the film again as the flimsy nature came through like a sledgehammer to the head...and Emmerich lays on the schmaltzy, maudlin sentimentality, disguised in the form of altruistic self sacrifice and heroism, about as thick as he lays the snows on New York...I would have thought it difficult to top the gushy, slushy, saccharine sweet goo presented in Independence Day, but I was wrong, as here, he turns it into an art form. The dialog was just awful...I was surprised some of the actors managed to get their lines out while keeping a straight face. Also, the dialog was entirely predictable, especially between the pregnant pauses meant to heighten the emotional level for the drivel soon to follow...I actually found myself speaking lines before they were spoken in the film, as it was that obvious as to what was coming. And the film seems inundated with a preachy smugness...yes, we consume fossil fuels and use resources from the Earth, but does that necessarily make us evil and deserving of the scenario played out in this film? I love it when Hollywood, in all of its shallow gloriousness, tries to teach the rest of the world what's wrong with us. This is a big difference between Emmerich and Irwin Allen...Allen made disaster films to engage and entertain, while Emmerich seems to use the medium as a means to tell us the error of our so called destructive ways, and showing the ruinous consequences that result. Ahh, I've stood on my soapbox long enough...here's some scenes to watch for...the one, after New York is frozen, with the homeless man teaching the rich kid, who normally wouldn't have given the filthy man the time of day, how to use newspapers and such to insulate himself by stuffing them in his clothes...can you see the irony here? The homeless, once a burden on our society, have now, after the disaster, found purpose in advising the uninitiated on how to survive, as they've had to do living on the mean streets. Everyone go out and befriend a homeless person now, before it's too late...okay, how about this scene...the kids, now stuck in the Manhattan library after the storm, are scrounging for food, and break into some vending machines. The homeless guy suggests looking in the trash cans, as there's always something to eat in trash cans (yeah, okay...I'll tell you what my stinky friend, I'll eat the potato chips and M&M's and you can have whatever edible, maggot infested morsels you find rummaging in the garbage)...again, infinitely invaluable advice from the homeless...

Ⅳ 幫我用英語寫一篇關於介紹電影後天的文章

In director Roland Emmerich's 'Independence Day' (1996), a boffin eventually defeats the space aliens that have wrought explosive havoc all over America (and incidentally the rest of the world) – without provocation. In 'Godzilla' (1998), a boffin eventually defeats the giant iguana that has rampaged through New York City's highrise – but the fact that the lizard's mutation was a proct of exposure to Pacific nuclear testing hinted that humankind was just reaping what it (or at least what the French) had sown. And now in 'The Day After Tomorrow', there is yet more disaster and destruction on a truly massive scale all over America (and incidentally the rest of the world), only this time the enemy is global warming, the starring boffin is unable to do anything to defeat it, and the blame is placed squarely on the shoulders of Western consumerism and blinkered US governance. In other words, Emmerich's delight in sublime catastrophe may be consistent to the point of repetitivene ss, but at least the man is maturing politically.

A sequence of extreme weather conditions (snow in New Delhi, bucket-sized hailstones in Tokyo, spectacular tornadoes in downtown LA) leads palaeoclimatologist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) to realise that a new ice age is coming. His son Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal) becomes trapped in New York's Public Library when a tidal wave strikes the city, and is forced to fight rapidly dropping temperatures – and a pack of hungry wolves escaped from the zoo – while Jack and two colleagues attempt the perilous journey from Washington to find him.

'The Day After Tomorrow' has everything you expect from a disaster movie: personal dramas set against apocalyptic mayhem; lots of scenes set in control rooms (with no-one in control); recognisable public monuments being torn apart/flooded/buried under snow/snapfrozen; and episodes so preposterously daft that you just have to love them, as when Jack feels the need to explain the relationship between the North Atlantic current and the world's climate to a room full of meteorological experts, or when Sam and his friends outrun a towering wall of water (and later a fast-moving coldsnap). Silliest of all is the realisation that Jack has undertaken his journey not to save the good burghers of New York, nor even just to save his own son, but rather simply to prove that he can for once keep an appointment – making the final scenes of this film hilariously anticlimactic, as our hero is left with literally nothing to do except grin.

While Emmerich is really only going over visual effects already well covered by films like 'Deep Impact', 'Twister' or even 'Meteor', he comes into his own in battering his viewers with total sensory overload to convey the sheer, overwhelming scale of the devastation. The bass rumble which accompanies the wave rolling through New York is quite simply the most ear-splitting sound ever heard in a cinema, and if the film's cataclysmic, but occasionally ropey, CGI fails to humble you, the soundtrack might just succeed.

It is for its politics, however, that this film is most audacious, as it represents a direct attack on the refusal of the current US administration to rece greenhouse emissions. Even if it is somewhat simplistic, 'The Day After Tomorrow' may have more impact on Bush's stance on the environment than any serious science could, as it terrifies its American viewers into doing something that the British have always enjoyed – talking about the weather.

It's Got: Widespread demolition of American cities beyond al Qaidas wildest dreams; fun environmentalist Bush-ting; neat satirical scenes in which floods of US nationals are forced to cross the Mexican border as illegals; and weather conditions as cold as a brass monkeys proverbials (still, mustnt grumble).

It Needs: To be seen (and heard) in a decent cinema - without its scale, there would be little left but cheese.

Alternatives:

Deep Impact, Meteor, The Twelve Monkeys, Twister
Summary
At last the British get to see a film entirely about the weather.

篇一:《後天》 觀後感 英文版

英文:
The feedback of“the day after tomorrow”
This is my second time to see “the day after tomorrow”. The first time, and many others, I see the contradiction between human and nature, environmental pollution, energy deficiency. How stupid human are, and human is so small in the disaster. Then, I think more about how to protect the environment and save energy to avoid this situation happens.
But this time, I didn’t see the film from environment, but from the human. I saw people’s affection, friendship and love in the face of death, serious work and dedication, and some people is fatuous and ignorant in the face of scientific.
The time, I really feel what is responsibility, what is persist, what is commitment. In many cases, we do not need to go to the principle of the so-called persistent on the way of things. Some critical moment, we have to give up some minor things, only know how to choose can do anything more perfect.

這是我第二次看《後天》這部電影。第一次,和很多人一樣,我看到的是人類和自然的矛盾,環境問題,資源問題,覺得人類是多麼的愚蠢,在災難面前是多麼的渺小。然後就想著怎樣保護環境,節約能源,避免電影上的情況真的發生。
但是這次,我並沒有從環境的角度去看這部電影,而是從人性的角度去看。我看到了,在災難面前人們親情、友情、愛情的體現,看到了人們在死亡面前的勇敢,對工作的認真和執著,還有一些人在科學面前的愚昧與無知。
這次,我深深地感受到了什麼是責任,什麼是堅持,什麼是承諾。很多時候,我們沒有必要為了那些所謂的原則去執著於某一種做事方式。在某些關鍵時刻,我們必須得放棄一些次要的東西,必須懂得取捨才可以把一件事做得更完美。

Ⅹ 急求電影<<後天>>介紹 中文的

《後天》原本不叫《後天》,而是叫《明日之後》,也叫《末日浩劫》。這實在是個糟糕的變動,既沒有「明日之後」的末日幽冥感,又失去了「末日浩劫」直取要害的生猛,但願這個譯名不會抑制觀眾買票進場的慾望,因為這實在是一部「好看」的電影,在《魔戒》之後的北京,已經好久沒有看到這樣只靠視覺「殺人」的電影了。電影里也確實死了很多人,主要是美國人,大概死了小一半,其中還包括美國總統,就這點來說,本片比導演艾默里奇的前作《獨立日》更瘋魔了。

毀滅方式一:連天的海嘯席捲城市,曼哈頓沉沒。

毀滅方式二:巨大的龍卷風降臨人間,洛杉磯成為地獄。

毀滅方式三:超低溫氣流冰凍城市,自由女神像。

劇情篇 頭重腳輕的拯救

一般認為,災難片的重點當屬電腦特效,而劇情和人物基本都可以忽略不計。其實,災難片要展現的往往是人類群體面對滅頂之災時的反應,這就對劇作提出三點要求:一、角色眾多;二、層次明晰;三、主次得當。而想完好地達到如此要求,確實是對編導能力的極大考驗。

《後天》的編劇兼導演羅蘭·艾默里奇是拍攝災難片的行家裡手,他以前的《獨立日》和《哥斯拉》雖然帶有科幻或者怪獸電影的元素,其核心依然是正統的災難片。所以,對艾默里奇來說,描寫災難下的群像還算是得心應手。在這部《後天》中,上有決策國民命運的美國總統,下有棲息紐約街頭的乞丐,既有監守崗位的英國科研人員,也有被冰雹擊倒在東京街頭的日本職員,再加上身為氣象學家的主人公與他的家人朋友,足以構成一派末日世界的微縮景觀。從劇情展開來看,影片一直以主人公傑克·霍爾的活動為主線,前半段描寫他說服政界高層,而後半段則是以他拯救受困紐約的兒子為重,而政界人士、霍爾的妻子、兒子的行動則成為輔線,始終都圍繞著拯救與自救的主題。可以說,《後天》在層次處理上也是非常得當。

然而,這部影片的劇情也並非完美,其中最大的問題就是在於影片沒有真正意義上的高潮段落,顯得敘事結構嚴重失調。《後天》最為精彩的段落就是開場不久後颶風席捲洛杉磯的場景,而等到影片的後半段,霍爾前往紐約尋找兒子的過程則顯得頗為平淡,未受太多磨難便按部就班地到達了目的地。也許,導演原意想將冰凍紐約處理成影片的高潮段落,可惜營造力未能達到預想的效果,使得影片整體都顯得有些頭重腳輕。

至於影片的理論基礎,我想氣象學屬於非普及性的知識,多數觀眾也不至於太過較真兒,這畢竟只是部靠視覺沖擊取勝的暑期大片,而並非「探索」頻道的科學紀錄片。而影片為製造大團圓結局,居然讓主人公在完全斷電的情況下向遷移到墨西哥的美國政府發送傳真,這多少有些穿幫得叫人發笑。

特效篇 把地球裝進冰箱

沒有哪個導演像艾默里奇這樣瘋狂熱衷於把地球毀滅一萬遍,從《獨立日》到《哥斯拉》再到《後天》,其電影中的「毀滅當量」成倍增長,單從特技角度說,已經足以讓觀眾體驗到摧枯拉朽的破壞樂趣。

《後天》與環保無關,與政治無關,甚至都算不上一部預言第二冰河紀的科幻電影。在我看來,它完完全全是一部「奇幻」電影———滿足一些人心底里的破壞欲!

就像《終結者II》中「啟示錄」一般的核爆炸,當你看到「好萊塢」的招牌被龍卷風擰碎,日本街頭被炮彈般的冰雹砸爛,整個紐約被連天的海嘯吞沒,帝國大廈迅速冰凍,摩天大樓只剩鋼筋殘骸,文明的巔峰瞬間變成昏黃的廢墟,你怎能不感到巨大的沖擊,就如同頑劣的小孩掀翻地上的玩偶,未知的力量把地球放進冰箱!

在災難片中,大就是美。《魔戒》中的水淹雙塔算什麼?想像一下比那大一萬倍的場面!而且你的視角不只停留在地面,還會被帶到空中,帶到雲層,甚至太空!「人」變得越來越小,「環境」變得越來越大,這就是為什麼片中只表現標志性建築的毀滅,很少看到成千上萬的「小人兒」抱頭鼠竄,動不動就是直徑幾十公里的風暴眼,隨便一個鏡頭都要用到搖臂,大量的全景俯拍、航拍,結合模型和電腦特效,把一場末世浩劫拍得窮奢極欲!

《後天》有著卓然視覺表現的原因,除了災難規模大、數量多之外,還在於充滿感染力的色調處理。隨著時間的推移和災難類型的變化,影片的色調呈現出富有層次的過渡,比如災難來臨前蒼白黯淡的雲層,暴雨降臨時蒼茫渾濁的街道,颶風席捲後滿天塵土的昏黃都市,冰雪紛飛時慘白的世界,以及災難過後耀眼的白色冰層、反射著陽光余輝的紅色天際……一切都做到充分渲染情緒,讓人完全感受到寒冷、潮濕、溫暖等等氣候變化帶來的感官反應。

更有進步的是,艾默里奇學會了用「靜」抒情———比如衛星劃過時不再有「轟」的低響。而最令人震撼的是以下兩個場面———紐約化作冰川之後一艘巨大的郵輪靜靜漂入紐約街頭,以及暴風雪過後,丹尼斯·奎德和隊友在半掩於雪地中的自由女神像下走過,彷彿來到了又一個時空中的《人猿星球》!

類型篇 發現無政府的快感

災難片之所以長盛不衰,主要是因為它能夠滿足人的幾類心理需要,下面就把《後天》放在災難片的坐標繫上,看一看它的成績單。

視覺沖擊:災難片總是能給那些視覺效果狂人以巨大的發揮空間,給觀眾的眼睛以「地毯式」的轟炸。我感覺《後天》中的視覺效果良莠不齊,恐怕是因為片子的攤子鋪得太大,場景太多,沒有一個場景能夠做得充分。相比起來,場景比較集中的《泰坦尼克號》、《龍卷風》等影片反而更有效果。

動作場面:很多災難片雖然講的是自然的憤怒,然而我們更多地是看到人在裡面跑來跑去,災難片是動作場面最好的載體。《後天》中的動作戲都不太過癮,原因可能還是攤子鋪得太大。其實,《後天》還有很多潛力可挖,比如說最後一場,完全可以搞個地板大塌陷,或者人狼大戰什麼的。相比起來,《泰坦尼克號》充分發掘了狹小的場景里動作戲的可能性。

末世幽冥:宏大的、混雜著傷感、恐懼和悲壯的幽冥感是只有災難片才能帶來的心理快感。《後天》的中段成功地達到了這種效果,然而在後半部這種感覺卻泄了下去。雖然《後天》的投資達到1.2億美元,然而它所達到的幽冥感只相當於投資7000萬美元的《天地大沖撞》,這只能歸咎於劇情安排的不合理。

無政府快感:災難來了,大家可以各行其是,這種無政府主義的快感被很多災難片所忽視,這主要是因為那些災難片只發生在一個很小的局部。而《後天》的災難席捲全世界,當仁不讓地表現出末日浩劫中的無政府快感,這也是本片最大的特色之一。在《後天》中,把圖書當柴燒的情節肯定會成為很多觀眾的最愛,在別的災難片中很難找到對應的例子。

角色篇 到後天就把他們都忘記

《後天》惟一值得看的就是視覺效果,演員的表演幾乎沒有任何可圈可點之處。編劇導演將所有角色放在商業流水線上,打磨成統一尺寸的螺釘螺母,幾乎放過了對任何可能出彩的劇情、對白、或對角色的琢磨。因此你不會看到那些面對浩劫災難時本應變得復雜、叵測、意味深長的人性和人物關系,取而代之的是被處理得潦草蒼白的愛情、親情或者友情。它們在電腦特技造出的末世景象面前,虛假得如同一束塑料花兒。因此,當片中那兩大團狀如冰激凌的「風暴眼」在大氣層上空緩慢移動,地球像一枚誤放入冷凍室的柿子那樣從外到里逐漸結滿了冰碴兒的時候,我心想,這世界總算清凈了……

扮演男主角山姆的帥哥傑克·吉倫哈爾本是演獨立電影出身的,他顯然還不適合這種直白、簡單的角色,狀態一直緊綳綳的,很多戲都處理得缺乏火候。而他女友的扮演者艾米·羅森就更像一個擺設、一個芭比娃娃,其僵硬空洞卻十分標準的笑容讓「未來數年內好萊塢最值得關注的新星」這樣的稱號大打折扣;而山姆爸爸的扮演者丹尼斯·奎德稍好一點,畢竟他是男主角、大英雄、慈父愛夫,戲份不輕。可他義無反顧搭救兒子的行動實在缺乏信服力:除非他帶著《七龍珠》裡面的百變膠囊或者機器貓的時空車,否則他在沒有後援的情況下,在冰天雪地中步行到曼哈頓,見到兒子之後要怎樣呢?難道是要死在一起?

黑人流浪漢和他的狗倒是有些出彩的戲,伊恩·荷姆關於蘇格蘭威士忌的論調也很美妙,可惜這些短暫的亮點無法改變整體演技的粗糙和僵硬。在這點上,《後天》永遠超不過《人猿星球》、《地心末日》等經典科幻災難片的高度,甚至還不如《獨立日》好看……最後,「冰激凌」像《卡桑德拉大橋》中的鼠疫一般神奇地退卻,一切恢復正常,北半球上空的大氣層純潔得猶如回到造物之初。這個只凍了一半的地球給人們開了一個不那麼科學的玩笑,於是我們心情輕松,嘻嘻哈哈走出電影院,到了後天———甚至不用等到後天,就會把電影里所有的角色忘得乾乾凈凈。
