Sylvester Stallone - Rocky


【楚爾秀音樂欣賞】

《洛基》(Rocky,又譯洛奇)是1976年由約翰·艾維森執導,席維斯·史特龍(Sylvester Stallone)擔綱編劇兼主演,講述一個寂寂無名的拳手洛基·巴布亞(Rocky Balboa),綽號「義大利種馬」(Italian Stallion),與重量級拳王阿波羅·克里德(Apollo Creed)爭奪拳王的故事。「洛基」雖然是個虛構角色,由於劇情振奮人心又宣揚美國精神,「洛基」成為一個典型美國夢的英雄。席維斯·史特龍憑著演譯洛基·巴布亞,不僅成為著名的好萊塢影星,更是1980年代的電影票房保證及高片酬影星,甚至被塑造成美國版的民族英雄岳飛。《洛基》一片是低成本製作,僅僅花費100萬美元,及只用28日拍攝。然而意外地竟有超過一億一千七百二十萬的票房收入。《洛基》贏得1976年奧斯卡最佳影片獎、奧斯卡最佳導演獎和最佳剪輯獎,史特龍獲提名奧斯卡最佳男主角獎和最佳原創劇本。

由1976年到2006年,席維斯·史特龍共拍了六部洛基系列電影,洛基·巴布亞為電影系列第一男主角。2015年11月席維斯·史特龍推出了第七部洛基電影,但洛基·巴布亞首度變成電影系列男配角。洛基系列的電影名稱與上映時間如下:

洛基第一集:《洛基》(Rocky)1976年
洛基第二集:《洛基續集》(Rocky II)1979年
洛基第三集:《洛基三虎之眼》(Rocky III)1982年
洛基第四集:《洛基四天下無敵》(Rocky IV)1985年
洛基第五集:《洛基五龍吟虎嘯》(Rocky V)1990年
洛基第六集:《洛基六勇者無懼》(Rocky VI)2006年
洛基第七集:《洛基七金牌拳手》(Creed)2015年
洛基第八集:《金牌拳手2:父仇》(Creed II)2018年

洛基系列電影評價最高者仍是洛基第一集,而評價最差者是洛基第五集。洛基在第一集與阿波羅打成平手,洛基在第二集以最終意志戰勝阿波羅,洛基在第三集受到阿波羅的鼓勵之下擊敗怪頭T先生,洛基在第四集為了替阿波羅報仇而遠赴莫斯科打爆殺人機器拳王(Ivan Drago)。

洛基在第五集因得到阿茲海默症,無法再參加擂台戰成為街頭鬥士。原本第五集導演要讓洛基橫死街頭,洛基被自己的徒弟打死,以後就不用再拍續集。但席維斯·史特龍更改劇本讓洛基死裡逃生,最後反擊打倒徒弟,這段劇情轉彎有點硬。觀眾實在無法接受洛基虎落平陽的落難結局,洛基票房直線下降而讓席維斯·史特龍聲勢下墬,席維斯·史特龍變成1990年代的電影票房毒藥,更被評選為演技最差男主角。

直到十六年後推出洛基第六集勇者無懼,席維斯·史特龍才又恢復英雄氣概,替洛基系列電影扳回一城。

洛基系列電影令人熱血沸騰的拳擊爭戰,當屬《洛基三虎之眼》與《洛基四天下無敵》,其拳擊戰打得天昏地暗日月無光,堪稱是拳擊片經典中的經典。席維斯·史特龍當年因同時演出藍波系列電影,把肌肉練成像砲彈般強韌,宛如武神降世,比起1970年代的李小龍電影,不惶多讓。


《洛基四天下無敵》電影劇照


講到《洛基三虎之眼》與《洛基四天下無敵》,一定要提到演唱電影主題曲的樂團「生存者樂團」(Survivor)。生存者樂團成立於1977年,因主唱《洛基三虎之眼》主題曲"Eye of The Tiger"勇奪美國告示牌六週流行排行榜冠軍,"Eye of The Tiger"更成為1982年美國告示牌年終排行榜亞軍。正當生存者樂團當紅之際,樂團主唱Dave Bickler卻於1983年離團,使得樂團於1985年尋找新主唱Jimi Jamison加入,Jimi Jamison因此演唱《洛基四天下無敵》主題曲"Burning Heart"。雖然Dave Bickler與Jimi Jamison音質接近,但"Eye of The Tiger"與"Burning Heart"曲風仍屬不同。


Eye of the Tiger

Risin' up back on the street,
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
So many times, it happens too fast,
You trade your passion for glory,
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past,
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the Eye of the Tiger,
It's the thrill of the fight,
Rising up to the challenge of our rival,
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night,
And he's watching us all
With the Eye of the Tiger.*

Face to face out in the heat,
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds still we take to the street
For the kill, with the skill to survive --

It's the Eye of the Tiger,
It's the thrill of the fight,
Rising up to the challenge of our rival,
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night,
And he's watching us all
With the Eye of the Tiger.

Risin' up straight to the top,
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

It's the Eye of the Tiger,
It's the thrill of the fight,
Rising up to the challenge of our rival,
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night,
And he's watching us all
With the Eye of the Tiger.


另一件妙事是席維斯·史特龍原先向英國天團皇后合唱團請求"Another One Bites The Dust"當作《洛基三》主題曲,皇后合唱團卻回絕席維斯·史特龍的請求,後來席維斯·史特龍才去找生存者樂團寫了"Eye of The Tiger"這首歌,並造就了《洛基三虎之眼》。

有關《洛基七金牌拳手》演出表單,赫然發現男主角竟然由麥可·喬登主演,難道空中飛人MJ也來打拳擊?其實《洛基七金牌拳手》男主角是黑人演員麥可·B·喬登(Michael Bakari Jordan)主演,兩位喬登恰巧同名同姓而已。

洛基電影主題旋律"Gonna Fly Now",由Bill Conti作曲,Carol Connors and Ayn Robbins作詞,該曲於1977年勇奪美國告示牌流行排行榜冠軍,並於1977年告示牌年終排行榜列為第21名,更奪下1977年奧斯卡最佳電影原創歌曲。

Gonna Fly Now

Trying hard now
It's so hard now
Trying hard now

Getting strong now
Won't be long now
Getting strong now

Gonna fly now
Flying high now
Gonna fly, fly, fly


以下是本人精選的洛基的電影主題曲:


洛基電影主題旋律《Gonna Fly Now》最早竟然是鋼琴版本,作曲家Bill Conti演奏。


《Gonna Fly Now》 - 1977 Film Rocky Theme:1977年《洛基》電影第一集主題曲《現在要去飛》


《Eye of the Tiger》 - 1982年《洛基》電影第三集虎之眼主題曲,生存者樂團Dave Bickler主唱。


1985年《洛基四天下無敵》主題曲《Burning Heart》,生存者樂團Jimi Jamison主唱 (Live from Las Vegas, 2012)。


Burning Heart

Two worlds collide
Rival nations
It's a primitive clash
Venting years of frustrations
Bravely we hope
Against all hope
There is so much at stake
Seems our freedom's up
Against the ropes
Does the crowd understand?
Is it East versus West
Or man against man
Can any nation stand alone

In the burning Heart
Just about to burst
There's a quest for answers
An unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night
Rising like a spire
In the burning heart
The unmistakable fire

In the warrior's code
There's no surrender
Though his body says stop
His spirit cries - never!
Deep in our soul
A quiet ember
Knows it's you against you
It's the paradox
That drives us on
It's a battle of wills
In the heat of attack
It's the passion that kills
The victory is yours alone

In the burning Heart
Just about to burst
There's a quest for answers
An unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night
Rising like a spire
In the burning heart
The unmistakable fire

In the burning Heart
Just about to burst
There's a quest for answers
An unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night
Rising like a spire
In the burning heart
The unmistakable fire

In the burning Heart
Just about to burst
There's a quest for answers
An unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night
Rising like a spire
In the burning heart
The unmistakable fire

In the burning heart
