● 洪铭铧

新传媒阿哥小生李名顺訽本有份当男主角的新剧换角,李名顺因官司未了被踢出局,角色由陈汉玮补上。新剧两大男主角由陈汉玮与王沺裁担纲,一正一反斗智斗勇到底。

不过,真正因李名顺而“受益”的人不是陈汉玮,而是非新传媒包薪演员王沺裁。

李名顺訽本在这部以重案组案件为背景的未命名警匪剧中,扮演一名个性冲动的警察,不过一名新传媒内部高层日前接受本报访问,谈到未来李名顺如果坐牢出来,可以如何穇身时,曾谈及李名顺不适合接演警察或英雄等正义角色,否则会产生讽刺效果。李名顺这回被换角,是否也是基于这个理由呢?

监制杨锡彬告诉本报,主要訽因是该剧将在6月4日开镜,以赶在9月18日播出,时间紧迫,因此必须换角。

陈汉玮突破演反派

新剧有双主角,除了冲动警察,另一个主角是曾担任无国界医生的法医,但他其实具备双重身份,他暗地里是名国际恐怖分子。

杨锡彬訽来安排李名顺和陈汉玮扮演双主角,陈汉玮几乎没有扮演过反派,让他出演亦正亦邪的角色,也是一大突破。不过决定李名顺出局后,剧组就在陈汉玮、曹国辉、王沺裁三人之间游移,最后因为王沺裁不会驾车,不能演出追匪的警察,终于敲定由他来演法医,而陈汉玮换去演警察,曹国辉则获得精明警察的角色,虽然戏份也重,但因为没有感情线,所以地位稍次两大男主角。

剧中陈汉玮和曹国辉组内的其他警察,由许立桦、芮恩、黄慧和陈国华担演。

王沺裁成最大得益者

已离开新传媒自创公关公司的王沺裁,最后一次演出新传媒剧集是去年的《法庭俏佳人》,这回因李名顺被换角,成为最大得益者,同时也反映出新传媒当前小生荒之严重。

杨锡彬说,他选择王沺裁主要是考虑角色适合与否。至于訽本被力捧的新生代小生许立桦,这回只演出配角,杨锡彬说,许多观众反映许的演技不足,希望让他先通过配角练好演技。

新剧因李名顺的关系引起瞩目,实际上它的确阵容不弱。不过因该剧并非排在年底播出,论排期不算重头剧,杨锡彬说,他的剧都是拍出来后人家看了才说是重头剧。

新剧将描写三大案件,除了王沺裁的双重身份搞出的案件,还有黑社会事件及牛郎被割掉私处案,戏剧性很丰富,演出人选还在考虑中。

女主角发挥空间大

剧中两大女主角则是林湘萍和芮恩,分别扮演心理医生和警察,与王沺裁、陈汉玮各有感情戏。林湘萍在剧中遭遇性侵害,心理转折复杂,性格有大变化。芮恩则在家庭暴力下成长,看过父亲虐待母亲,与父亲的心结也很深。两名女主角看来都有很大的发挥空间,不会比男主角逊色。

METAMORPHOSIS
STARRING: Chen Hanwei, Terence Cao, Rui En, Yvonne Lim, Thomas Ong
SHOWING ON: Channel 8, weekdays, 9pm, starting tonight
RATING: ** ½

IN case you can’t tell from the very large number of gun-pointing and car-leaping in the trailer, the new drama Metamorphosis is all about action.

Woo hoo, right?

I love action. But I don’t expect a local TV production to have Donnie Yen standards of punch ’em ups.

Despite this, I expect some acting, and plot development, which isn’t at all obvious in Metamorphosis, especially its pilot episode, which is simply awful.

CRAMMED

The producers try to cram too much into 45 minutes.

The story – the first of three major arcs – is about how the death of a gang boss leads to in-fighting.

His former henchmen, now battling for the pai kia (Hokkien for bad boy) throne, are being murdered by a mysterious knifeman.

It’s up to CID officer An Xiao Qian (Rui En) and her team, dominated by brutish hothead Ouyang Li (Chen Hanwei) and the thoughtful Di Lun (Terence Cao), to find out what really is happening.

Metamorphosis adopts the shaky cam school of action filmmaking, which is rarely good for extended fight scenes.

The major fight of the pilot episode includes waving coloured fluorescent tubes in a dark alleyway.

Watching it from the perspective of a jittering camera, I thought I was going to get seizures.

The most hilarious part was when the producers set up a motorcycle to skid into some barrels, which resulted in a huge fireball.What was in the barrels? Heated petroleum? TNT?

The best action scenes are the ones that tell a story, guys.

And if you want to have action just for action’s sake, it helps if the audience can actually see what’s happening.

As for the acting? Not much of that, since it mostly consists of actors talking harshly to each other. Huang Yiliang is perfect as a sleazy gangster though.

Fortunately, the second episode gets a lot better, as the focus switches to the story and fleshing out of the characters.The star is undoubtedly Hanwei, who looks like he had fun channelling his inner Ah Beng.

UNCONVINCING

As a loving, friendly and witty psychiatrist, Yvonne Lim is a welcome diversion from the endless gloominess and tough-guy posturing.

Rui En has a bad deal though.

She doesn’t really get to do much other than look angry at people. She also looks a little too slight to be convincing as a leader of men.

So, a pretty poor start for Metamorphosis. On the other hand, there’s a good chance it could get a lot better.

After all, it does take some time for a caterpillar to turn into a butterfly.

WHAT THOSE TICKS MEAN
***** Excellent
**** Good
*** Average
** Mediocre
* Don’t bother

2007年9月18日

【破茧而出】动作场面浩大……爆破、追车、肉搏战、枪战、跳车、飞车,演员卖命演出,震撼你的视觉感官!有什么镜头最不能错过?!我们来告诉你!

邓永君 报道/录像/剪辑/摄影(部分)

【破茧而出】是【刑警2人组】监制杨锡彬最新作品。看【刑警2人组】的经典镜头。

这部电视剧来势汹汹,有不少突破,单是动作场面就让人期待不已。清粥小菜吃多了,偶尔来个麻辣拼盘也不错。

根据杨监制的说法是,这部戏比之前的【刑】有更多动作场面,更有看头。杨监制还强调,本剧不是一味暴力、血腥、色情,观众可多留意剧情发展以及演员演技。

窄巷 + 灯管+ 打斗
综合以上三项,你联想到什么?

这是一场激烈的贴身打斗场面,这场戏花了两个晚上拍摄,陈汉玮(饰演欧阳力)、芮恩(饰演安晓茜)和动作演员王艳宾(饰演快刀手)在一条不到两尺宽的窄巷追逐、搏斗。

黄来发特别强调这一场戏是本地首创。

他说:“我们没有参考电影还是其他电视剧。这是我们自己的‘创作’。灵感来自于,我们发现拍夜戏的时候,摄影师都会在墙上装一两条灯管,增加光线。我们想,如果把巷子装满灯管,打斗应该会很好看……我们是故意找这么窄的巷子来拍的。”

为了拍摄这场戏,总共消耗了20多支灯管;黄来发把这场戏称为“流星雨”,芮恩接受访问的时候也说,拍出来的效果非常漂亮。

芮恩说:“噼里啪啦的火花,我觉得拍出来的效果很漂亮。”

陈汉玮则认为这是里面最惊险的一场戏,除了要应付迎面飞来的玻璃,还担心被打碎之后的灯管会“走火”。

这场戏到底有多漂亮、多惊险?记得要看电视播出!

芮恩:新一代打女
芮恩是演员当中,动作最多的,比剧中的男演员还多一点。戏里不少90度抬腿、踢腿、攀高爬低、追逐打斗的场面,都由她亲身上阵。

据说一场在船上的戏,她必须从高约2层楼的船舱,纵身一跳,抱着桅杆往下滑……这样的动作,对女生来说简直是超级无敌难,她竟然毫不犹豫就做了。

芮恩说:“当初脑子里只是想到‘bia’,拚了!什么都不想,拚了再说!”新一代打女,非她莫属。

18 September 2007

BALLET isn’t one of the violent arts.

But it comes in pretty handy when you’re shooting fight scenes.

Rui En discovered that in Metamorphosis, where she plays a female cop.

“It really helped with the kicking. I was surprised I could kick so high,” said the 26-year-old actress, who joined a dance group when she was in primary and secondary school.

Metamorphosis marks Rui En’s first action role. She leads a team of men and gets to fire a gun.

Not what you’d usually expect from the typically “girlish” roles she’s used to.

To prepare, she underwent two three-hour long martial arts training sessions.

“I ached for two weeks,” she said.

And although there were “blood, sweat and tears”, she said she loved the experience.

“I had a lot of fun. I think I’m violent… I enjoy kicking things,” she said cheerfully.

One thing rings true in both the entertainment scene and the mafia: a strong memorable name will get you far. For the stars of the new cop & thief drama Metamorphosis like Rui En, Yvonne Lim, Terence Cao and Thomas Ong, what alias would they adopt should they one day decide to switch industries?

Text by Kwok Kar Peng

Rattlesnake… Red-haired Pig… Blood Rose… such fanciful aliases can only appear in either the crime section of our Chinese dailies or the colourful imagination of the writers and producers in MediaCorp Chinese Drama unit. Every gangster who hopes to make it big in the underworld for sure needs a stylo-mylo alias that will leave the enemies shaking in their pants; like, how big can you get if you go with Ah Boy or Xiao Gui? For the stars of new cop & thief drama Metamorphosis, which debuts tomorrow at 9pm, we ask them what nick they would give themselves should they one day decided to abandon the glitzy lights of showbiz for the dark world of organized crime…

Rui En – Rayzer

“I read a lot of comics in my childhood and I’m an X-Men fan; I used to collect the comics, so I think it’ll be something along those lines, like… Razor… spelt in a funky way, or Ice… something simple lah, not too try-hard-to-be-evil.”

And would ‘Razer’ like herself to be immortalized, almost like the new reality programme Who Wants To Be A Superhero?

“Hahaha! I saw the trailers! It’s quite funny… it’s very cute. They have capes and wear tights… Ei, I wouldn’t mind having a Superhero persona y’know… You know who I find very cool? Aeon Flux. I find the image very, very cool. If I ever get a role like that, I’ll train for six months, I promise!”

For the girl who started out in modeling running in a Singtel ad and whom you will soon see chasing down baddies as a crime-busting cop in new drama Metamorphosis, Rui En confesses to be a serious slacker during the 2.4km runs in school.

The wheels of déjà vu are turning. Seven years ago, freshly out of junior college, Rui En received her first modeling job for a Singtel ad where you might remember her sprinting to top up her Singtel phone card so she could pick up a call from a cute hottie.

Now, numerous dramas later, Rui En is again running, this time for her new drama Metamorphosis where she hunts down law-breaking criminals. On the contrary to her sporty and gungho image, the 26-year-old singer-actress confessed to be a terrible student during the Physical Education (P.E.) classes.

“I always ‘siam’ (avoid) the 2.4 (km run)! Always!! I hate running! If I run, I have to force myself, so back in my school days, my friends and I were infamous for finding excuses not to do the 2.4 haha! We were really slackers when it came to P.E. until it got to a point where the P.E. teacher got so annoyed with us that we got a ticking-off in front of the whole school,” she chuckled.

Teacher would be sniggering in secret now as Rui En paid the price for her school day truancies during the filming of Metamorphosis: she pulled a muscle and went limping for about close to two weeks!

“And before filming started, I told the executive producer (EP) that I needed training because I had never done anything like this before, so the EP arranged two sessions with the martial arts choreographer for me. After the first three-hour session, I was aching so badly that I seriously couldn’t get up the next day! I had problems walking, but I was very lucky that I had those two lessons, so after that, I would ache a little bit but not as bad as the first time,” she winced in recollection.

The experience wasn’t all that bad; Rui En has now discovered something new about herself: she loves to fight! As she complains about how there wasn’t enough fight scenes in Metamorphosis to whet her appetite, she is also making plans to stay active to take up muay thai lessons.

“After filming Metamorphosis, I realized I like punching and kicking so much! It’s very stress-relieving! Maybe I’m just a violent person but I really like the fight scenes. I’m trying to keep active so that if I do take up the sport, I won’t, like, die of exhaustion.”

Metamorphosis begins tomorrow Sept 18 at 9pm on Channel 8! The drama also stars Chen Hanwei, Terence Cao, Thomas Ong, Yvonne Lim, Brandon Wong, Cavin Soh, Ng Hui, Julian Hee, Chen Guohua, Bryan Wang, Ix Shen and Chew Sin Huey.
