Knight and Day (騎士出任務)

在電視上看了《騎士出任務》兩次,但很不幸每次都沒有看到前半部。它在戲院播放時並不吸引我,後來它開始在電視上播的時候,我也不怎麼期待。不過當我偶然看到的時候才發現就我所看到的部分來講,其實它還滿好看的。它的劇本像是融合了一些過去的動作片,領銜主演的兩位對多數觀眾來說也不算是新鮮的組合。然而,即使在《香草天空》之後已經過了那麼多年,他們兩位看起來還是很登對。以前有一段時間我一直在聽《香草天空》的電影原聲帶,所以這部電影跟音樂也都是我記憶中的一部份。現在我其實已經忘記電影在演甚麼了。我唯一記得的一幕是在Julie發現David在跟別人交往的時候,她對他大聲地說:「當你跟一個人上了床,你的身體已經作出了承諾。」我不確定這是不是正確的台詞,但差不多就是這樣的意思,這使我印象很深刻。在電影裡,不久之後Julie就從她所在的世界上完全消失了。她的死來得很突然,所以可能這也是為什麼我對於電影的這部份印象如此地深。所以當湯姆克魯斯與卡麥蓉狄亞再次合作的時候,給我的感覺就像當年的Julie終於得其所愛。

僅管有許多不完美之處,《騎士出任務》還算滿好看的。看兩個中年人談戀愛可能對一些人來說不怎麼賞心悅目,但是最後June把Roy從醫院救出來的這一段還滿溫馨的。如果這真的發生在現實世界中就會滿令人感動的。愛是這個冒險拯救行動背後的推手。即使不是這麼英雄式的行為,也仍然有愛在流動著。可能只是倒一杯茶,給一個擁抱,說些鼓勵的話,或是所愛的人臥病在床的時候願意為對方處理便盆。出於愛的行為總是能觸動人心。

I came across the film Knight and Day (騎士出任務) twice on TV but unfortunately, I always missed the first half of the film.  When it was shown in the theater it did not attract me, and when it was shown on TV later, I did not expect it too much either.   But when I came across it on TV, I found it is actually a delightful movie as in the part I saw.  The script seems to be a combination of some action movies released earlier, and the leading cast may not be refreshing enough for most audience.   However the couple still looks well together though many years have passed since Vanilla Sky.  There was a time I listened to the soundtrack of Vanilla Sky over and over, so the film and its music come to be part of my memory.  Now actually I forgot what Vanilla Sky is about.  The only scene I remembered is what Julie (played by Cameron) yelled at David (played by Tom) when she found he fell in love with someone else: when you sleep with someone, your body has made a commitment. I am not sure if this is the correct line, but something was said like that and it left a strong impression in me.  Just in a few scenes or a few seconds later Julie was totally gone from the world she lives.  Her death came so suddenly that maybe this is why I remembered that part of the movie so well.  Therefore when Tom and Cameron star in the same movie again, it makes me feel that poor Julie finally has her man.

Despite of its imperfection, Knight and Day is still an enjoyable movie.  Seeing two middle-aged people fall in love may not be delightful to some, but the part where June got Roy out of the hospital is sweet.  That will be really touching if it happens in the reality.  Love is there underneath such an adventurous rescue.  Even if an action is not so heroic like this there can still be love flowing through.  Maybe it’s just bringing a cup of tea, giving a hug, saying something encouraging, or taking care of the bedpan when your loved one is staying in bed.  An action out of love always moves the heart.
