‘Divergent’ stands alone

The Hunger Games saga is still running and already we have a successor — a franchise starring a tough heroine in a dystopian future that is targeted at young adult audiences.
《饥饿游戏》的长篇传奇未完,《分歧者:异类觉醒》已前来接班:同为系列影片,同样讲述了反乌托邦式的未来中坚强女主的故事,目标群体都是年轻观众。

Divergent, the first installment in the film adaptation of US young adult novelist Veronica Roth’s best-selling trilogy, is set in a futuristic Chicago. The population is divided into five factions: Abnegation, Amity, Erudite, Candor and Dauntless. If someone doesn’t fall into any of those categories, they are marginalized and left homeless.
《异类觉醒》改编自美国青春小说家维罗妮卡•托斯畅销三部曲的第一部,其背景设定在未来的芝加哥。在那里,人类被划分为五大派:无私派、和平派、博学派、诚实派和无畏派。而没有派别的人则被排挤,无家可归。

Our 16-year-old protagonist Beatrice Prior (played by Shailene Woodley), or “Tris”, finds herself labeled as a “divergent”, meaning she has strengths in more than one area and is a threat to those in power. After arbitrarily choosing to enter the “Dauntless” clan, she begins training to prove she’s good enough to be among the elite.
16岁的主人公碧翠丝•普赖尔 (谢琳•伍德蕾饰演),被称为翠丝,发现自己是“分歧者”,拥有不同领域的力量,并因此成为当权者的眼中钉。在武断选择加入无畏派之后,翠丝在训练中崭露头角,显现出自己堪比精英的实力。

Much of the film focuses on Tris’ training, both physically and mentally. The training challenges her to face and surmount her fears. The movie feels a bit slow at times, and the first installment spends too much time on world building rather than offering a real first adventure for our heroes, which is frustrating.
影片着重讲述翠丝在身体和心智的训练。训练中,她面对挑战、战胜恐惧。但是,影片有时节奏略慢,加之运用大量篇幅介绍背景,主人公们却并没有经历真正的冒险,这不免有些令人失望。

The only upside to this might be that we got to enjoy a terrific lead performance from Shailene Woodley. In Divergent, Woodley transforms from the sweet, girl-next-door from films like The Descendants and The Fault in Our Stars into a smart, plucky heroine akin to Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen.
唯一值得欣慰的,也许是我们能欣赏到主演谢琳•伍德蕾的精湛演技。在《分歧者:异类觉醒》中,伍德蕾一改《后人》与《星运里的错》中甜美邻家女孩的形象,化身成聪明勇敢的女英雄,让人想起詹妮弗•劳伦斯在《饥饿游戏》中扮演的凯特尼斯•伊夫狄恩。


In the end, the film works as a metaphor for today’s competitive job market and education system. It’s about identity, finding out who you are, and discovering how you fit into society as you grow from an adolescent into an adult.
说到底,这部影片暗喻了现今竞争激烈的就业市场和教育体系,讨论了青少年在长大成人时,探索如何适应社会,找寻并认识自我。

Divergent is a fun ride that doesn’t ask much of its audience, but doesn’t reward viewers with much either. It’s not The Hunger Games, which has harder edges and elements of sadism, and it really doesn’t need to be. As the next great fantasy trilogy, Divergent offers enough to stand on its own as an independent franchise, and as many believe, may offer more and more in future installments.
《分歧者:异类觉醒》是部有趣的影片,虽然观众不会从影片中受益良多,但是观看起来毫无压力。它不像《饥饿游戏》——前卫重口、含有施虐情节——它也不需要那样。作为《饥饿游戏》之后又一科幻三部曲巨作,《分歧者》本身就足以在观众心目中立足。许多人相信,该系列的后续影片还会带来更多惊喜。
