《蝙蝠侠:黑暗骑士崛起》

原文作者:杨奕

  当导演christopher nolan遇到黑暗中诞生的英雄batman,两人注定要碰撞出绝非寻常的火花。从2005年的《侠影之谜》(batman begins)到2008年的影史经典《黑暗骑士》(the dark knight),蝙蝠侠bruce wayne向我们展示了超级英雄的另一面:他不可能总是被光环所笼罩,为了维护正义,有时也不得不卧薪尝胆、忍辱负重。在2012年上映的《蝙蝠侠:黑暗骑士崛起》(the dark knight rises)中,bruce为拯救普罗大众重出江湖、英勇“崛起”,除了相伴多年的那些老朋友,他身边还多了年轻的警官john blake和叛逆的“猫女”selina kyle。这又是一次怎样的正邪之战呢?
   mayor: harvey dent's day may not be our oldest public holiday, but we are here tonight because it's one of the most important. harvey dent's uncompromising (坚定的) stand against organized crime had made gotham a safer place than it was at the time of his death, 8 years ago. this city has seen a historic turn around. no city is without crime, but this city is without organized crime ... people put their faith in a murderous thug (暴徒,指蝙蝠侠) in a mask and a cape. a thug who showed his true nature when he betrayed the trust of this great man and murdered him in cold blood.[论文网]
   不要为gotham的市长颠倒黑白的发言吃惊。www.redprintm.com在道貌岸然的检察官harvey dent死后,阻止他阴谋得逞的蝙蝠侠bruce自愿背负了harvey的罪行,而真正的罪犯harvey成了“正义的使者”。幸而bruce的真实身份并没有被拆穿,他带着心爱之人亡故之痛和残疾的腿退隐wayne庄园,除了偶尔资助慈善活动外再不抛头露面,只剩gordon警长一人维护着城市的安宁。然而这份难得的安宁却在八年后被恐怖分子头目bane的袭击打破了。这个头戴面罩、四肢发达的家伙头脑却并不简单,他佯装自投罗网,从中情局(cia)荷枪实弹的飞机上劫走了一位炸弹专家,准备实施那个酝酿了很久的危险计划。
   在harvey去世八年的纪念晚宴上,一位美丽的女服务生趁乱混入bruce的豪宅,待bruce发觉时,这个外表弱不禁风的女人已然将bruce放在保险箱中的家传项链戴在了自己的脖子上。bruce试图出手阻止,然而这位似猫一样优雅却又毫不留情的神秘女子一脚将bruce踢倒在地,成功脱逃。bruce发现这个“猫女”并不只是单纯图财,她还采集了自己的指纹。bruce敏锐地意识到这件事将会变得十分棘手。
   刚参加完晚宴的gordon警长迎来了一个血气方刚的年轻警官blake。blake想知道八年前harvey被杀的真相和蝙蝠侠的真实身份,他不停追问,而gordon警长却闪烁其词。blake追查蝙蝠侠真实身份的行动没有得到长官的支持,有些失望。可失望的又岂止他一人。八年来,bruce终日“宅”在家中,现在又开始研究猫女的罪行,这让忠诚的管家alfred再也看不下去了。他认为bruce是在逃避现实,便试图劝说。
   bruce: there's nothing out there for me.
  alfred: and that's the problem. you hung up your cape and your cowl (风帽) and you didn't move on. you never went to find a life, to find someone ...
   bruce: alfred ... i did find someone.
  alfred: i know, and you lost them. but that's all part of living, sir. but you are not living, you're just waiting, hoping for things to go bad again. remember when you left gotham? before all this, before batman? you were gone seven years. seven years i waited, hoping that you wouldn't come back. every year, i took a holiday. i went to florence's café on the banks of the arno. every fine evening i'd sit there and ordered a fernet branca (一种苦酒). i had this fantasy that i would look across the tables and i'd see you there, with a wife, maybe a couple of kids. you wouldn't say anything to me, nor me to you. but we both know that you'd made it, that you were happy. i never wanted you to come back to gotham. i always knew there was nothing here for you, except pain and tragedy. and i wanted something more for you than that. [转身走了几步又回头说道] i still do.

 地下阴谋
  夜幕降临,猫女selina出现在一家酒馆里,用采集到的bruce的指纹与妄图操纵证券市场的daggett的手下进行交易,换取一件神秘物品,不料对方食言,意欲杀她灭口。狡黠的猫女早为自己留好后路,她提前绑架了一名众议员,引来警察,自己扮作受惊的顾客从

容撤离。
   gordon警长带领特警追击,却中了daggett的同伙bane的圈套,被抓到bane在下水道中建立的黑暗帝国。负伤的gordon警长抓住机会跳进水流中逃走,被及时赶来的blake救起,送往医院。有所察觉的年轻警官blake旋即来到wayne庄园,欲劝bruce重新出山。原来,blake在wayne家族资助的孤儿院中长大,他与bruce一样失去了双亲,从小就不得不学着隐藏愤怒,笑对众生。他在bruce和蝙蝠侠身上都看到过这种复杂的情感,因此深信bruce就是蝙蝠侠,也深信蝙蝠侠一定会重出江湖、拯救众生。
   blake的一席话让bruce深受触动,尤其是听到wayne企业管理不善,孤儿院的资助早已被中止,他终于决定回到前线去战斗。blake前脚刚走,bruce便佯装去看病借机潜入了gordon警长的病房。
   gordon: we were in this together. then you were gone.
  bruce: the batman wasn't needed anymore. we won ...
  gordon: based on a lie. now there's evil rising from where we try to bury it. the batman has to come back.
   bruce: what if he doesn't exist anymore?
  gordon: he must.
  gordon警长的一句“the batman has to come back”更坚定了bruce重出江湖的决心。当晚,bruce跟踪猫女来到了一个慈善晚宴。举办者miranda tate是一位热衷公益事业的女企业家,似乎对bruce有些倾慕之情,她主动搭讪并指出bruce与她都在做着一样的事情。相互寒暄后,bruce前去截住意图行窃的猫女selina,可她对之前的偷窃行为毫不避讳,反倒理直气壮地认为自己是在“劫富济贫”,两人又是一番唇枪舌剑。
   selina: i started out doing what i had to. once you've done what you had to, they'll never let you do what you want to.
   bruce: start fresh.
  selina: ugh. there's no fresh start in today's world.... everything we do is collated (整理) and quantified. everything sticks.
   bruce: is that how you justify stealing?
  selina: i take what i need from those who have more than enough. i don't stand on the shoulders of people with less.
   bruce: robin hood?
  selina: i think i do more to help someone than most of the people in this room. than you.
   ...
  selina: you think all this can last? there's a storm coming, mr. wayne....
  游走于正邪之间的猫女显然知道些什么,她最后警告bruce富人们寻欢作乐的时光就要结束了,因为一场风暴即将来袭。
  翌日,bruce前去拜访wayne企业的董事lucius fox。由于公司经营不善,fox劝bruce与女企业家miranda联手,启动之前中止的清洁核能源项目,使公司扭亏为盈。同时,fox利用聪明才智和高科技手段,治好了bruce多年的腿疾,助他早日复出。另一边,alfred担心bruce轻敌,便调查了bane的底细。原来bane像bruce一样也曾随影武者联盟(the league of shadows)的忍者大师(ra's al ghul)学艺,但是据说bane因为太过偏激被逐出师门,从一个不见天日、没有人能离开的地牢成功逃出,才有了今日的地位。
   重出江湖
  bane终于在光天化日之下开始行动了,他借助暴力手段闯入gotham市证券交易所,窃取了金融市场上的所有交易数据。虽然有种种不确定因素,bruce还是以蝙蝠侠的身份重出江湖,本想试图阻止bane,不料却引来了全城警力的围捕,好在最终安全逃出重围。与此同时,猫女selina潜入daggett的地盘欲讨回她费尽心思想换取、能洗刷自己犯罪记录、让生活重新开始的“洗底”软件(clean state),不料却被告知根本没有这款软件。她又一次落入了对方的圈套。幸亏蝙蝠侠及时赶到,二人联手击溃了敌人。bruce并不顺利的复出让管家alfred担心不已,两人争吵起来。
   alfred: you see only one end to your journey. leaving is all i have to make you understand: you're not batman anymore. you have to find another way. you used to talk about finishing about a life on that awful cave.

 [alfred道出bruce已故的心爱之人rachel其实爱的是harvey,残酷的真相让他难以接受]
  bruce: you expect to destroy my world ... and then think we're going to shake hands?
   alfred: no. i know what this means.
  bruce: what does it mean?
  alfred: it means your hatred. and it also means losing someone that i have cared for since i first heard his cries echo through this house. but it might also mean saving your life. and that is more important.
   bruce: [面色凝重] goodbye, alfred!
  alfred担心bruce

的安危,为劝他急流勇退,不惜以辞职苦苦相逼,最后不得不离开了wayne庄园。雪上加霜的是,daggett通过金融诈骗手段使bruce陷入破产的窘境,企图取而代之,掌控wayne企业。bruce万般无奈,只得听从fox的建议,向miranda求援。董事会成员推选miranda担任wayne企业的董事长,miranda借机了解到潜藏在河水之下的核反应堆的运作原理,并承诺在危难关头毁掉这个装置,不让它落入恶人之手。阴谋未得逞的daggett冲bane发火,却反被穷凶极恶的bane干掉。赏钱并不是bane想要的,复仇才是他真正的目的。
   罪恶之城
  得到gordon警长青睐的blake开始调查daggett被杀一案与bane背后的阴谋。bruce穿上蝙蝠侠战衣潜入地下,决心抓住bane。selina答应为他带路,条件仍是那款“洗底”软件。握有软件的bruce欣然应允,可没想到的是,猫女受到bane的威胁,背叛了bruce,将他引入埋伏圈。被困的bruce与bane展开了激烈的打斗。体力大不如前的bruce根本不是bane的对手,几个回合后就惨败下来。身负重伤的bruce被bane关在传说中无法逃离的地牢深渊里。看着奄奄一息的bruce,bane终于将自己的阴谋告诉了他。
   bruce: where am i?
  bane: home, where i learned the truth about despair, as will you. there's a reason why this prison is the worst hell on earth. hope. every man who was locked in here over the centuries has looked up to the light and imagined climbing to freedom. so easy, so simple! and like shipwrecked men turning to seawater for uncontrollable thirst, many have died trying. and i learned here that there can be no true despair without hope. so as i terrorize (恐怖统治) gotham, i will feed its people hope to poison their souls. i will let them believe that they can survive so that you can watch them clambering over each other to stay in the sun. you can watch me torture (折磨) an entire city, and then when you have truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill ra's al ghul's destiny. we will destroy gotham. and then, when it is done, and gotham is ashes ... then you have my permission to die.
   满腹仇恨的bane把bruce丢在地牢,让他看着自己将如何把gotham变成彻底绝望的人间地狱。随后,他劫持了miranda与fox,破解了wayne企业的最高机密,成功启动核能源装置,并把反应堆的核心取了下来,使其成为随时都可以被引爆的核弹。
   gordon在医院病榻上指挥全城警察潜入地下,希望一举剿灭bane的势力,结果反被算计,几乎所有的警察都被困在了地下。原来bane早在全市地下埋设了炸弹,blake在最后关头发现了bane的阴谋,但还是迟了一步。bane在球场引爆炸弹,当着成千上万的观众杀死了唯一能拆除这枚核弹的专家,让gotham的所有市民都不得不对他俯首称臣。bane美其名曰“让市民做主人”,实际上却封锁了城市,让gotham陷入可怕的无政府主义暴乱中。
   置之死地而后生
  独裁统治期间,bane释放了监狱中的所有罪犯,将gotham变成了名副其实的罪恶之都。bane还戳穿了harvey的真面目,将混淆视听的责任推到gordon身上。美国政府不敢轻举妄动,未采取任何营救行动。人性的弱点渐渐暴露出来,那些不满生活现状的市民在gotham打砸抢烧、恣意妄为。gordon和blake组织尚存的小部分警力暗中进行抵抗,但敌人太过强大,队友不断牺牲。好在他们查到核弹被放在某辆日夜行驶在市内的卡车中,而且计时装置早已启动,于是他们开始全力搜索核弹。


 被困在地牢中的bruce得到两位狱友的帮助,身体渐渐有所好转。他们给bruce详细讲述了bane当年逃出地牢的情形。bruce听后不再消沉,他决心要离开地牢,去拯救处在水深火热之中的gotham。锻炼多日后,他系上绳子尝试爬出地牢,却在最难跨越的地方跌下来,所幸没受什么伤。看着愤怒中的bruce,一位狱友说出了bane逃出监狱的关键。
   blind prisoner: you do not fear death. you think this makes you strong. it makes you weak.
   bruce: why?
  blind prisoner: how can you move faster than possible, fight longer than possible without the most powerful impulse of the spirit—the fear of death?
   bruce: i do fear death. i fear dying in here while my city burns with no one there to save it.
   blind prisoner: then make the climb.
  bruce: [笑道] how?
  blind prisoner: as the child did, without the rope. then fear will find you again.
   经过狱友点拨,bruce终于领会到“置之死地而后生”的深意,他不再使用任何保险措施,借着强烈的求生欲所带来的力量,成功逃离地牢。蝙蝠侠终于站了起来。
  英雄无悔
  距离核弹爆炸只有不到一天的时间。gordon被捕,“稻草人”法官滥用私刑,将gordon放逐在危险的冰面上,幸而蝙蝠侠及时

赶来,救了他。bruce与blake协力将困在地下的警察全部救出。一场全面反攻即将上演。猫女selina再次扮演了一个微妙的角色,她劝bruce与她一起离开,因为她觉得bruce已为gotham付出了一切,然而对bruce来说,或许只有献出生命才算是付出了所有。
   正邪大战随即打响,被困多日的警察与bane的党羽殊死搏斗。脱胎换骨的bruce这次轻松击败了bane,逼问bane核弹引爆器的下落,不料“人质”miranda竟对他拔刀相向——原来她才是恐怖组织的头目,才是当年逃出地牢的孩子,bane只是她的保镖,也是这次行动的傀儡。不仅如此,miranda还是蝙蝠侠的师父忍者大师的女儿,她誓将gotham化为废墟,向蝙蝠侠报杀父之仇。危急时刻,原计划明哲保身的猫女selina突然杀了回来,救出bruce。两人与gordon联手击败了miranda。然而miranda早已修改了核能源装置的应急程序,核弹仍将在几分钟内爆炸。bruce决定牺牲自己,驾驶战机将核弹带到无人的海上,与之同归于尽。gordon警长在最后关头试图询问蝙蝠侠的真实身份。
   gordon: shouldn't the people know the hero who saved them?
  bruce: a hero can be anyone. even a man doing something as simple and reassuring (安慰) as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know the world hadn't ended.
   gordon没有想到,当年他为bruce披上衣服的小小善举,终究温暖了这个孩子,让他成为今日的英雄。茫茫大海上,bruce驾驶的战机消失在核弹爆炸留下的炫目光辉中。gotham得救了,蝙蝠侠真的就这样离去了吗?
   bruce的好友在wayne庄园为他举行了葬礼。按照bruce的遗嘱,wayne庄园变成了一所孤儿院。blake辞职后在bruce留下的蝙蝠洞中潜心修炼,成为新一任的batman。alfred又一次来到意大利佛罗伦萨阿尔诺河畔的那家咖啡馆,却惊喜地看到bruce与selina像平常夫妻一样幸福地享受着假期。主仆二人彼此相视一笑,无须更多言语。
   nolan的电影基调总是灰色的,甚至是黑暗的,《蝙蝠侠前传》三部曲更是如此。然而在萧索、乖戾的故事背后,我们却一次又一次看到了人性中正义的光芒。《蝙蝠侠:黑暗骑士崛起》不是一部歌颂个人英雄主义的电影,它与《蝙蝠侠前传》的前两部电影一脉相承,讲述的是以蝙蝠侠为首的人们如何在善恶之间做出选择,是否要为更多人的幸福做出牺牲。片中,bruce忍辱负重生活了八年,却依然甘愿为指责、误解他的陌生人牺牲生命;gordon警长明知harvey dent的真面目,却不得不承受极度痛苦的煎熬独守秘密,只为不破坏市民心目中的英雄形象;alfred为救少主不惜斩断多年情分,祈求用冷酷的真相将bruce从危险边缘拉回;blake在逆境中始终坚守着纯真的希望;selina一直以为劫富济贫就是正义,最终却也学会了自省……他们都是英雄,以各自的方式实践着正义,用善良驱散了罪恶的阴霾,唤醒了人们心底的希望和勇气。蝙蝠侠是谁早已不再重要,重要的是人人都能去捍卫正义、传承正义。
