导读:人类与猿族为了生存而战,这是近期上映的科幻巨作《猩球崛起3:终极之战》的主线剧情。然而,不同于典型的科幻片,这部电影的看点并不在于特效和动作场景,而是人性中的灰色地带……
For those who have seen War for the Planet of the Apes, it’s easy to come to this conclusion – the movie isn’t about war or the planet, and it’s not necessarily even about the apes.
看过《猩球崛起3:终极之战》(以下简称《星球崛起3》)的人都很容易得出以下结论:这部电影无关战争或星球,甚至和猩猩也未必相关。

The movie is about survival and the choices we all make when one wants to survive, good or bad.
这部电影讲述了生存以及我们所有人为生存所做出的选择,不论好坏。

Being the third in the trilogy, War for the Planet of the Apes takes us back to a familiar world from previous films. A “simian flu” pandemic has greatly reduced the human population while boosting the intelligence of apes. Humans, led by the Colonel, want to survive by killing the apes, and the apes, led by the alpha ape named Caesar, also try to fight their way to live.
作为《猩球崛起》三部曲的最后一部,《猩球崛起3》将我们带回到了前作中那个熟悉的世界。一场“猿流感”的流行令人口锐减,并提高了猿族的智商。上校所领导的人类为了生存而残杀猿族,而由猿族首领凯撒率领的猩猩们也在努力为生存而战。

With a story that should have been full of conflict and violence, War for the Planet of the Apes takes a different approach – it only has small pockets of action and most of the film consists of quiet conversation. While recent sci-fi movies have become known for their action scenes, War for the Planet of the Apes has taken science fiction in a thoughtful and intelligent direction.
这样的故事本应充满了矛盾和暴力,但《猩球崛起3》采用了一种截然不同的表现手法——影片中只有少量的动作镜头,大多数场景都是安静的对话。尽管近来的科幻电影都以动作场面著称,但《猩球崛起3》却将科幻片带往一个充满深度和智慧的方向。

In order to survive, characters, good or bad, all have to make their decisions. They all wander in a moral gray area where evil acts are committed for understandable reasons and characters we sympathize (同情) with have serious flaws.
为了求生,正派反派们都必须做出自己的决定。他们徘徊于一个道德的灰色地带:恶行的动机都情有可原,而我们所同情的角色又有着严重的缺点。

For example, we would find the Colonel to be nothing but evil at the beginning of the film since his ambition is to kill every ape in existence. But the movie grants him his reasons. He has a long conversation with Caesar in the middle of the film, in which he explains his ideas and his personal history, so that we have a glimpse into a troubled personality.
比如,影片一开始,我们会发现上校这一角色简直十恶不赦,因为他的想法就是杀光所有的猿族。但电影中也交代了他的动机。在影片进行到一半时,上校和凯撒进行了一次长谈。谈话中,他解释了自己的想法以及自己的过去,令我们也得以了解他的性格缺陷。

War for the Planet of the Apes may not be the action and monster film that you had in mind, but it’s the kind of film that will make you want to sit in silence in the theater for a few minutes after it ends, taking in what you’ve just witnessed.
《猩球崛起3》或许并非你印象中的怪兽动作片,但这部电影结束后能让你在影院静坐片刻,消化刚刚所看到的一切。

The few movies that have that effect are usually about humans, but this film made people feel that way about apes. And that’s what makes it a masterpiece.
拥有如此效果的寥寥几部电影通常都描写人类,但这部关于猿族的电影却让人们感受到了同样的震撼。而这点令其成为杰作。
