《惡獸》(MONSTRUM)

從前,有一種物叫「惡獸」;從前,有一種醜陋叫「人」。

取材自《朝鮮王朝實錄》。傳說漢陽仁王山有巨獸出沒,將人撕咬吞噬,全城恐慌。在你爭我奪的朝政下,製造「恐懼」令民眾臣服是弄權者慣用手段。「你們怕,就容易管了」,然後高姿態做救世主贏取民心,或藉此打壓異見之士(本城正是)

起:以探案追兇方式推展,懸疑吸引。承:逐步戳破傳言,亦步亦趨。轉:原來另有真相,誘人思考。合:剷除敗類,高興之餘當反省。雖然老套,但總算劇本扎實,豐富多彩。情節緊湊無冷場;驚險刺激,令人喘不過氣。電腦特技不錯;起碼「怪獸」有表情、有層次。打鬥動作皆有水準,而且分鏡用心,細節交代清晰。令我驚喜(愛對號入座)的竟有環保主題:基因改造;人類自取滅亡。

不開心的反而是結局,最醜陋惡毒的其實不是「惡獸」,他也是受害者,不該落得如此下場。
