港產經典中的警匪與青春

Classic Hong Kong Films :Gangsters & Youth

七八十年代的香港電影中,不少均以警匪和少男少女為題材。今次選來的四部電影均為當時極具時代氣息的電影作品。從電影中所描寫的兵、賊、失意青年人,能回望當時香港社會的一些面貌,對比今天,仍能讓觀眾有所共鳴。

In the 70s & 80s of Hong Kong Cinema, quite a lot films used gangsters and youth as the themes. This year, we select four representative films of the time in which we can see the representation of Hong Kong society at that time through the depiction police, thieves, frustrated young people ─ compared to today, the situation can still resonate with the audience.

章國明首部電影作品,由陳欣健擔當策劃。故事以雜差CID小隊為骨幹,彷彿脫胎自章國明電視時期的劇集《CID》。警察威信受殺手挑釁的情節雖與《牆內牆外》(1979)類近,但個人英雄色彩卻大減,明顯較《牆內牆外》紮實平衡。《牆內牆外》集中於正直和貪腐警察的比對,《點指兵兵》則用了不少篇幅描寫辣雞和兒子的關係。為了救出兒子,魯莽衝動的辣雞中伏殉職。專業和人性成為主要的戲劇衝突,卻沒有偏離「邪不能勝正」的類型公式。許炳森的角色因投考警隊失敗而成魔,屬港片中罕見的變態殺手。最後與張國強於長走廊對峙,節奏處理一氣呵成,是其中一個令人難忘的港產警匪片結局。

Cops and Robbers is essentially the story of three cops and one robber, the former an amalgam of professionals with different temperaments, the latter a psycho killer obsessed with guns. The title comes from a children's game, in which players are assigned roles of either law enforcers or lawbreakers largely by chance, colouring the film with a shade of fatalistic irony. Director Alex Cheung, a wunderkind who had been winning film awards since his teens, tackles his feature debut with abandon, indulging in filmic and storytelling devices like a kid in a candy store, staging kinetic scenes in ordinary neighbourhoods, planting psychological clues in everyday situations and lobbing grenades of sensational emotions into the narrative mix.
