Thinking is not about our movie

Thinking is not about our movie

I wrote a few days ago an article about the movie "Crimea". I read the reviews. Scratched his head. A matter of taste. But, to be objective, I want to share the reasoning and the propaganda "from that side." From Ukraine, it means ... But what really is there, the film! Take it higher - the show! And his name is "Guard" 2015 year and "Guard - 2" 2017 year.

I will make a reservation right away; there is no point in watching most VO readers. Apparently, focusing on the domestic consumer, or on a wave of patriotism, the creators decided to leave half of the actors in Ukrainian, and the captions were not allowed to be translated from below. So for the rest of the world, half of the series will remain incomprehensible ...

Both the little-known young heroes and the venerable starred in this “masterpiece”. The "core" of the composition may be called Alexei Gorbunov ("Gu-ha", "Cadets", etc.), Akhtem Seytablaev ("Khaytarma"), Dmitry Stupka.

If you believe the creators, then everything is based on real events. May be. But the play of actors ... Often it negates all faith in authenticity ...

The plot is simple. Maidan. The death of people and subsequent political events. In this, looking at the screen, I believe. Then, the formation of the first volunteer battalions, of which the national guard was later formed (hence the name), is shown. In the same system are people of different classes, nationalities and destinies. Lviv, Odessa, Kiev resident, Crimean Tatar, etc. Former chefs, programmers, artists and police. Headed them (again, the former) intelligence officer (A. Gorbunov). A couple of training sessions and here it is - war.

This is where the main "bloopers" begin. It turns out that you can go behind enemy lines in jeans and a t-shirt. And there to speak in such a way that the first addict on the way will "see through" you.

The militia corrector arrives at the checkpoint on the scooter, recounts the fighters, pulls out the mobile phone, calls and drives back. Cunning scouts guess that now there will be an “arrival” and they manage to escape.

The chase, as in the early American action movies - two cars, they are a lot of people, everyone is firing at each other, but do not fall ...

"Guard-2" distinguished by the presence of military equipment (sometimes the same "Cossack", "Varta" and BTR-3 are maneuvering in the frames) and the beginning of the death of the main characters.

It turns out that you can walk with your girlfriend in the daisy field, holding hands and not suspect that the gunner of a mobile mortar is already watching you. And he will not regret a series of mines to destroy your happiness!

Cossacks are shown classically - forever drunk, unshaven fat men in "Kubank". But even they know the "mole" in the headquarters ukrov. The same ones cleverly calculate both the "mole" and the representative of the GRU of the Russian Federation (and what would you like ?!)

The latter, by the way, turned out to be fond of the weaker sex and hankered at a young doctor, very similar to an adult movie star (damn, I have never come across such people in my life!)

The insidious plan of the militants is simple - during the distribution of humanitarian aid to blow up one truck filled with explosives. Warriors of light disrupt the plan - the car is hijacked together (in the film it is called KAMAZ several times, but it is clear that this is the ZIL "Bull-calves") and on the outskirts of the city they explode in it (at least, I understand).

To be continued?

    Was it worth the time to spend even browsing from fifth to tenth?

      Was it worth covering this "movie" even from a critical point of view?

    And why, in * our movie * in another way?
    * Matilda * just the same model of attitude towards RUSSIA and RUSSIAN. There, they even looked for an actor in a * movie for concerned *.
    They create brilliant and vivid pictures, even to the point of tenderness, and twist it in front of the * Papuans * trying to breathe in * their vision *, resentment against * misunderstanding * is elevated to a mandatory ritual.
    If cinema is a business and nothing personal, then claims to spirituality or historicity are sideways.

        It is unlikely that anyone was going to go at him. The box office provided Mrs. Poklonskaya with a completely unhealthy hysteria around the film.

          About "Matilda". From the review:
          "At the second hour of viewing, I thought - rather, Orthodox activists would have appeared to diversify the action ..."

        Opponent of the wide distribution of the film - but looked at home ...
        Well, sho? sho tse tak, I ask you? If not for Poklonskaya, the rental would have failed ... 50-70 million rubles. "would be repelled, at a cost of 800-900? ...
        Well, historical lies and bloopers - take off the dog, it’s “artistic”! Well, miserable scenario ... Well, a beautiful picture ...
        The only A noteworthy thought (well, it seemed to me personally ...) is the sacrifice of a person vested with public debt (Nicholas II). Well, he was not ready to be sovereign such country! In general, a good person; but - much out of place ... He would have a quiet life, work with children - a gymnasium teacher, say, or in a provincial service-chancellery with peasant workers! Could not have left a “trace in history” - but it would have brought more benefit than in its sovereign place ... And then after all - one feels: sometimes he got out of his skin, but - everything is amiss, everything is “sideways”; it seems to people and the country that it wants good - but it goes like that! ...
        ... Donated "great love" for the "great debt" to the country? It seems that this is the main lie of this "movie masterpiece" ...

    I do not watch TV shows myself or recommend them to others. And what did the author expect from Ukrainian filmmakers? Almost all of our series were shot in the first place, it was so cheaper, the actors were also used often local. Only now there are not even our miserable screenwriters and wealthy sponsors, since the producers are also ours. So it turns out at the exit of a parody of a parody.

        Bogdan Stupka played Taras Bulb.

        And he played Mazepu in Bandera's “Prayer for the Hetman Mazepa”.

    why watch obvious nonsense and people’s brains clog up? Or does the author think that all shit is worth discussing?

    Gorbunov is now not young, but what will he eat in his old age?

    It was necessary to order the film "Odessa Film Studio." It would turn out cheaper and cooler.
