《遗落战境》自上映起外界评价一直褒贬不一。尽管与同类影片相比,该片有许多似曾相识的地方,但的确为广大影迷打来一次视觉盛宴

As I sat in the cinema watching Oblivion unfold, I couldn’t stop myself from thinking, “I wouldn’t have expected that if they hadn’t already done it in Planet of the Apes,” or “That was a nice touch, but they did it better in Wall-E,” or “This whole scene would have had more impact if they hadn’t aced it in Independence Day.”
当我坐在影院中观看《遗落战境》时,脑海中一直在思考:“既然《决战猩球》有些东西没有做到,那么对本片中不要抱什么期望。”“这是个神来之笔,但《机器人总动员》做得更好。”或者“如果不是有影片《独立日》珠玉在前的话,这部片子会更具影响力。”

I don’t want to brag about how many sci-fi films I’ve seen, but you get the idea.
尽管我并不想吹嘘自己曾经看过的科幻片有多少,但是你肯定明白我的意思。


Oblivion borrows from ― or pays homage to, if put charitably ― just about every sci-fi movie I know. But that doesn’t mean it’s a bad film.
《遗落战境》几乎借鉴了所有我知道的科幻影片——说的客气一点,是向它们表示致敬。但并不意味着这是部烂片。


You have to give it credit for trying, really hard. All the familiar elements from different sci-fi movies come together to make the idea behind Oblivion quite original.
对于片中的大胆尝试,你不得不竖起大拇指。将不同科幻片中的相似元素整合起来,使得本片在创意上匠心独运。


Set in 2077, Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is one of the last remaining men stationed on an evacuated Earth, which was nearly destroyed 60 years ago in an alien invasion. Helping Jack is Victoria (Andrea Riseborough) who mans the operations post at their sky-high condominium. Their mission control commander is Sally (Melissa Leo), who guides them from Tet, a space station that was humanity’s escape vessel after the war.
故事被设定在2077年,那时的地球已在60年前的一次外星人入侵后变成一片满目疮痍之地,杰克•哈伯(汤姆•克鲁斯饰演)是为数不多驻守地球的人。搭档维多利亚(安德丽亚•瑞斯波罗格饰演)在居住的“摩天塔”内负责运转工作。他们的军事指挥官莎莉(梅丽莎•里奥饰演)在泰特空间站上指挥他们的行动,那里是外星人大战后的人类避难所

Like most sci-fi stories, the more you examine the plot, the less sense it makes. But director Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) and his screenwriters do come up with truly imaginative details.
同大多数科幻故事一样,你对情节审视得越多,就越发觉得说不通。但曾执导过《创:战纪》的约瑟夫•科金斯基和编剧们显然构想出许多极富想象力的情节。


You may wonder why Jack’s nose is wounded in an early fight, for example, but the scar becomes crucial later on. Guns, motorcycles, even Jack’s jet-powered helicopter are just plausible enough to keep you involved in the story.
比如,你会想为何要设置杰克在先前的一次打斗中鼻子受伤的场景,而接下来这处疤痕却在后面的剧情中起到至关重要的作用。枪支、未来摩托、以及杰克驾驶的喷气式直升飞机都足够逼真,引人入胜。


One of the best things about the film is that Kosinski has put his background in architecture and design to good use and created a story full of visual treats. He really focuses on building atmosphere, which is essential in this genre. Just by looking at the scenery you feel sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, uncertainty and fear.
该片的一大亮点在于,导演科金斯基把影片背景设置在建筑群中,并充分利用这点,打造了一场视觉盛宴。他的主要精力在于营造氛围,这是该类型影片大获成功的关键。只要看到一处场景,你就会如临其境地感到悲伤、孤独、无望、迷茫与恐惧。


My feeling is that Kosinski’s heart seems to be in making smaller, more intimate movies than Oblivion’s impressive budget and the presence of superstar Tom Cruise would suggest. But without these factors, Chinese sci-fi fans would have missed out on a chance to enjoy a cinematic feast.
在我看来,相对于《遗落战境》的高成本以及巨星阿汤哥的加盟这些话题,科金斯基其实更想花心思来拍一部更具个人色彩的小制作电影。但是如果没有这些元素的话,中国的科幻迷们也就会错过一次享受电影盛宴的机会。


Let the critics say what an “empty thriller” the film is as many times as they want, it’s not our concern.
很多影评人将该片大肆批评为“空洞的惊悚片”,尽管让他们说去吧,因为这些都不是我们所在乎的。

Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid.
