與時下熱映電影同步有嚴重Lag的我,總算把這部驚天動地的蝙蝠俠前傳2”The Dark Knight”給看完了。我想我會逢人就推薦這部電影,不管是劇情、特效、剪接、演員的表現上,這部電影給我無比的滿足,也同時給了我無比失落的心情。導演Norlan把美式卡通英雄電影帶進完全不同的領域,以更恢宏的深度來闡述正義、邪惡、信念以及希望。劇本打破一貫正邪黑白對立的窠臼,將劇中角色屬性套入不一樣的分類法則,引領觀眾正視重新思考人性善惡的秘密。

To them, you're just a freak......like me.
They need you right now......but when they don't......they'll cast you out like a leper.
You see, their morals, their code......it's a bad joke.

在劇本架構中,蝙蝠俠和小丑都是規則外的人物。這裡所指的規則,並非正邪的對立,而是理智層面的人性,泛指司法、金錢等一類可循的屬世法則。不管好人、壞人,這個世界上多數的人都是屬於這一類。即使如片中的黑幫頭頭,對於金錢的貪婪仍然使他們有跡可循。

Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money.
They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with.
Some men just wanna watch the world burn.

相對於規則與邏輯。小丑則是徹頭徹尾的神經病。然而在角色以及劇本巧妙的編排下,蝙蝠俠和小丑確實都是規則邏輯外的同路人。世俗司法無法規範他們,他們同樣運用刺激人性心生”恐懼”的手段。差別僅在於小丑以”恐懼”意圖拆穿道德的假面具。而蝙蝠俠則是以”恐懼”抑至犯罪勢力的擴張。這是一齣比壞人更壞的”邪惡”,和不屈從法治邏輯”正義”的對立。這兩者間的戰爭,會合與交手之處是人性善惡的祕密,而這場戰爭的結果關乎人們的信念能否得到回報。

Because that's what needs to happen.
Because sometimes......the truth isn 't good enough.
Sometimes people deserve more.
Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.

看看我們所身處的周遭,以及人心的面向。White Knight "Harvey" 的變質提醒人性之所以能擺脫綑綁,那是因為心中仍然存有救贖的希望。然而尋不回摯愛的絕望,徹底毀滅劇中本應陽光下綻放的正義化身。換得了小丑的勝利。

I took Gotham's white knight......and I brought him down to our level.
It wasn't hard. See, madness, as you know......is like gravity.
All it takes is a little push.

然而守護希望的代價,卻是身處無盡黑暗的孤獨。任何人都有可能是小丑、是蝙蝠俠、或是讓屬世規則在身上運作的芸芸眾生。

Because he's not our hero.
He's a silent guardian......a watchful protector.
A dark knight.

我想,這或許是一部講Sacrifice和Hope的故事。
