人类和机器人之间的另一种打开方式
Big, fluffy and all ready to rumble

看多了人类与机器人的未来大战,《超能陆战队》也许能让你看到人与机器人的之间的另一种打开方式。比如:大白,来给大家卖个萌……

【原滋原味双语阅读】

Superheroes don’t always need to have six packs and cool demeanors. They can also have a chubby face, a beer belly and a warm smile like the white inflatable healthcare robot Baymax from Disney’s Oscar-winning 3-D animated film Big Hero 6.
超级英雄不一定非要有六块腹肌,也不一定言谈举止炫酷有型。他们可以长着一张胖乎乎的脸,挺着大肚腩,笑容温馨又有爱——就像《超能陆战队》中的私人健康顾问大白。这部3D电影获得了第87届奥斯卡最佳动画长片奖。

Based on a Marvel comic, the film centers on 14-year-old robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada. After his older brother Tadashi, who is a university student delving into robotics loses his life in a fire, the boy reprograms Tadashi’s Baymax into a fighting robot and forms a superhero team to investigate the truth behind the tragic accident.
《超能陆战队》改编自漫威漫画,故事围绕14岁的机器人设计奇才阿宏展开。他的哥哥阿正是一名钻研机器人技术的大学生,不幸的是一场火灾夺去了他的生命。为了调查火灾事故的真相,阿宏重新组装了哥哥留下的机器人大白,并将其改造成战斗型机器人,(和哥哥的好友一起)成立了超能陆战队。


The biggest selling point of the movie is the super lovable and balloonish Baymax. Looking like a walking marshmallow and moving and speaking slowly, he is the movie’s star. Although he might not look like the professional nurse he is, Baymax serves as a reasonable and competent healthcare companion. In any case, Hiro’s health condition, physically and psychologically, is always Baymax’s first concern.
超萌滚圆的大白是该片的最大卖点。这位影片主角说话做事都慢悠悠的,活像一块会动的棉花糖。也许,大白和专业的护士形象相去甚远,但他却是一个能耐心陪伴主人康复的得力健康顾问。无论何时,阿宏的身心健康都是他最关心的问题。

When Hiro commands Baymax to fight, something it doesn’t understand, the cute medical care robot instead tilts his head and tenderly asks what would improve Hiro’s mood, melting the audience’s hearts.
当阿宏命令大白开启战斗模式时,身为医护机器人的大白便会一脸茫然,歪着脑袋轻声问阿宏该如何改善他的情绪。看到这里,观众的心也随之融化了。

Most Disney films start out with a feeling of impending doom. However, when trouble hits, our emotional investment in the characters only increases. We don’t want to see the innocent robot become an instrument of revenge.
大部分迪士尼电影开篇总爱营造一种厄运将近的气氛,但是,当麻烦真正出现时,观众却早已对主人公有了感情。所以,我们谁也不想看到天真的大白成为复仇的工具。

Robot movies are not new and have provoked profound thoughts for ages. In 2004 sci-fi film I, Robot, humanoid robots pose a fatal threat to humanity, and the 2009 animated film 9 opens with the near extinction of human beings at the hands of robots. But Big Hero 6 chooses to tell a simple but heartwarming story about the bond between humans and a robot.
以机器人为的主题的电影并不新鲜,多年来,一直引人深思。2004年的科幻电影《我,机器人》讲述了人形机器人对人类的致命威胁;2009年的动画电影《机器人9号》一开篇就展示了人类在机器人手中几近灭绝的场面。而电影《超能陆战队》却与众不同,它讲述了机器人与人类之间一个简单而暖心的故事。

The ending of the movie seems a bit predictable. When Hiro’s possessed with thoughts of revenge, it is video clips of his brother that keep him from being swallowed by rage. Some might say this transformation comes too easily. But I’d rather believe family affection has this power. It’s love that inspires the young, indifferent genius to start to care about people around him and the world, changing Hiro into a true hero.
电影的结局似乎在意料之中。最终,一心复仇的阿宏在看到哥哥留下的视频片段后放下了仇恨。有人也许觉得这种转变来得太快,但是我相信亲情确实有着这样的力量。正是爱,鼓舞了这个原本冷漠的少年天才,让他开始关心周围的人,关注这个世界,最终成为真正的英雄。
