離奇復仇事件

Mattie Ross: “You must pay for everything in this world, one way and another. There is nothing free except the grace of God.”

港式譯名為《離奇復仇事件》,但其實復仇事件並不離奇。年僅十四歲的女孩Mattie下定決心為父報仇,誓要把殺父仇人親手捸住,將他繩之於法。Mattie找來酒鬼警長幫忙,西部牛仔中途加入搜捕行動。雖然過程中出現不咬弦的情況,但在危急關頭各人卻沒有置對方生死不顧。

由於沒有看過原作,所以無從比較。高安兄弟的黑色幽默不時在片中出現,低調卻恰到好處,足以突出角色的特式。老戲骨如Jeff Bridges、Matt Damon、Josh Brolin的演出當然不在話下,但小妹妹Hailee Steinfeld的演技也不錯呢。在多位份量的男演員面前並沒有怯場,將Mattie的冷靜與機智演得恰到好處。

西部的荒漠雖然肅殺卻帶蒼桑的美。關於結局,對我來說是有點意料之外。不過寧願這樣,有遺憾才會更加銘記於心。
