電影《傳奇42號》觀後有感








這部電影算是自己期待已久的一部電影,最早是從ptt的棒球版得知有這部電影,加上其題材是我相當感興趣的棒球,所以一直想找機會觀看,日前欣賞完畢後,真的覺得沒有讓我失望,是一部相當令人感動及深思的電影,且值得回味再三。如果對MLB(美國職棒大聯盟)有一定熟悉程度的人來說,Jackie Robinson應該不會是太過陌生的名字,因為每年球季總有一天是人人都得穿上42號,為的就是要紀念Jackie Robinson對整個棒球界所帶來的巨大貢獻。



在影片當中Jackie Robinson被描繪成一個不屈不撓、永不放棄的硬漢,使在該片飾演RobinsonChadwick Boseman在片中的表現算是中規中矩,但也忠實地呈現了這樣的形象,而我認為此片中真正的主角其實是飾演布林克林道奇隊老闆的Harrison Ford,在整個故事劇情的發展中,其實Jackie一直都是處於較為被動的角色,但真正的劇情推手卻一直都是道奇隊的老闆Branch Rickey,從他希望能有黑人球員在大聯盟出賽,到他找到Jackie後用骯髒的言語對他進行刺激,到之後Jackie真的走不下去的時候,也是Branch在休息室持續鼓勵著他,老牌演員Harrison Ford確實是在這部戲當中大出風頭,甚至可以說搶走了不少Chadwick Boseman的風采,某種程度也是此片的一大特點。



在棒球電影中,對於棒球比賽的鏡頭呈現確實是一個很重要的地方,我個人相當讚賞《42》在此部分作出的努力及呈現,該片的操作手法很逼真的呈現了棒球比賽該有的緊張度以及刺激感,確實真的讓人有在實際觀看棒球比賽的感覺,另外我相當讚賞的部分就是此片的配樂,在選曲部分有些非常動聽的黑人藍調歌曲,和該劇情的畫面及內容相當的吻合,而我最喜歡的一首歌是由Sister Wynona Carr所演唱的"The Ball Game ",這首歌的歌詞把棒球比賽和福音信息完全的融入在一起,著實令我相當驚艷。



整體來說,我對《42》一片有著相當高度的讚賞,這片不只在演員、鏡頭、劇情、配樂等各個部分都有著十分到位的表現,更重要的是這部片可以讓許多人對棒球比賽有著更深刻的認識,棒球比賽它不只是場上的競賽,他已經和整個美國歷史文化交織在一塊,Jackie Robinson所代表的不只是一名棒球員,他更是代表整個美國種族歷史上的一大勝利,這是多麼令人可貴的事,所以我誠摯的推薦各位朋友有機會一定要撥冗觀看這部動人的電影《傳奇42》,無論你不是棒球迷,相信您都會相當欣賞此片的內容。


最後附上電影配樂"The ball Game"的歌詞

Life is a ball game
Bein' played each day
Life is a ball game
Everybody can play

Yes you know, Jesus standing at the home plate
He is waiting for you there
You know, the life is a ball game
But you've got to play it fast

The first phase is temptation
You know the second phase is sin
The third phase tribulation
If you pass, you can make it in

Old man Solomon is the umpire
And Satan pitchin' a game
He'll do his best, strike you out
He playin' just the same

You know, Daniel's up to bat first
You know, he pray three times a day
Yes Satan pitched him a fast ball
But he hit it anyway

Yes you know, Job is up to bat next
Satan's struck him in every way
But Job hit a home run
And he came on in that day

Yes you know, prayer is a strong bat
To hit at Satan's ball
And when you start to swing it
You got to give it your all and all

Yes you know, the priest gonna be your catcher
And on him you can depend
Oh Jesus standing at the home plate
And He is waiting for you to come in

Yes you know, Moses is on the sidelines
Waiting to be called
You know, the day he parted the Red Sea
Little price all and all

Then John came in the ninth inning
And the game was almost done
Then God gave John a vision
And he knew we'd already won

Yes you know life is a ball game
Being played each day
You know life is a ball game
Each and everybody can play

Yes you know, Jesus is standing at the home plate
He is waiting for you there
Well you know, life is a ball game
But you've got to play it fast
