《银翼杀手2049》能否续写传奇?
Sequel to classic worth wait

来源:21英语网    2017-11-07



        For fans of the 1982 film Blade Runner, the wait for a sequel might have meant a mixed feeling of high hopes and dread. The original film, directed by legendary UK director Ridley Scott, is set in the future world of 2019 in Los Angeles, where human policemen are sent out to kill “replicants” – robots created for labor.        对于1982年电影《银翼杀手》的粉丝们而言,等待一部续作的感觉或许是希望与担忧并存。由英国传奇导演雷德利·斯科特执导的原作故事发生在2019年未来世界的洛杉矶。当地派遣了人类警察前往消灭“复制人”—— 为劳动而创造的机器人。
        It’s long been seen as a sci-fi classic, due to its futuristic setting and the fact that it still raises troubling questions about technology and humanity. In every way, 1982’s Blade Runner was ahead of its time, and a film that’s very hard to compete with.        由于其未来主义的设定以及提出了科技与人性之间令人困扰的难题,这部电影一直以来都被视为一部科幻经典。1982年的《银翼杀手》在各个方面都超前于时代,很难有电影能与之匹敌。
        Thirty-five years later, the Canadian director Denis Villeneuve completed the task of making the sequel, Blade Runner 2049, which was released on Oct 27.        35年后,加拿大导演丹尼斯·维伦纽瓦完成了制作续集《银翼杀手2049》的任务。这部新片已于10月27日上映。
        And luckily for fans of the original, it was worth the long wait.        幸运的是,对于原作粉丝而言,漫长的等待是值得的。
        Set in 2049, 30 years after the original story, replicants are still being hunted, but this time by their own kind. Police officer K – played by US actor Ryan Gosling – belongs to a newer generation of replicants and is sent to destroy the older models. But as he finds out more about his own past during his mission, he starts questioning the meaning of his job and his existence.        电影设定在原作故事发生30年后的2049年,复制人依然遭到追杀,但这次威胁却来自他们的内部。K警官(美国演员瑞恩·高斯林饰)是新一代的复制人,受命前往摧毁复制人的旧机型。但随着他在任务中逐渐发掘出自己的过去,他开始怀疑自己的工作和存在的意义。
        Even three decades later, the theme of “human vs machine” is still relevant, especially with artificial intelligence being brought to reality in today’s world. Indeed, the question still remains: What makes us human?        就算在30年后,“人类vs.机器”的主题依然与我们息息相关,尤其是在人工智能成为现实的现今世界中。这个问题的确依然存在:我们何以为人?
        According to Blade Runner 2049, the line between human and machine is still as unclear as it was in 1982.        在《银翼杀手2049》这部电影中,人类和机器之间的界线还是和1982年那样不甚清晰。
        K, a replicant and “without a soul”, as he says himself, is fully capable of feeling emotions and choosing to do the right thing. And Joi, K’s virtual girlfriend, also shows that she cares deeply for K – even though she doesn’t have a body. It’s probably safe to say that she’s even more human-like than K’s human boss, Lieutenant Joshi, who is cold and merciless.        K自称是个“没有灵魂”的复制人,但他完全能够感受到情绪,并做出正确的选择。而K的虚拟女友乔伊也展现出对K非常关心 —— 尽管她并没有一个躯体。或许可以肯定地说,乔伊比K冷酷无情的人类上司,陆军中尉乔茜,更像人类。
        In this sense, despite the fact that Blade Runner 2049 hasn’t been as popular at the box office as was expected, it’s still “the rare sequel that can hold its own next to a bona fide masterpiece”,wrote Rafer Guzman, reporter for Newsday.        从这层意义而言,尽管《银翼杀手2049》并没有取得预期那样受欢迎的票房,它仍是部“少有的能够承接起一部真正杰作的续作”,Newsday记者拉弗·古兹曼写道。
