I got this strange movie from a friend lately. It’s black-and-white and silent, although I don’t think it’s supposed to be that way. I watched it and skipped through some of the scenes, but I’m sure that if you’ve seen it, you’ll recognize it by some highlights. Anyway, I can’t quite figure out what was happening there, so maybe you can help.
This is a movie about a peculiar guy. It starts with a protagonist being killed but afterward quickly revived. You know movies these days, they just can’t kill off an enjoyable character at the end, otherwise, the audience will tear them to shreds in the reviews… But why should I care about this particular character's death at the beginning of the movie? After all, I’ve only seen him for a couple of minutes.
Now there’s a separation scene. The protagonist holds another guy most firmly and dearly. They separate, the protagonist flies away, and another man stays in chains. Our protagonist probably decided to pursue a construction worker career, because, in the next scene, he’s able to renovate a nearly demolished interior. And he’s not at it alone, something tells me that a team of three helps him… Whatever that means.
Okay, this gets a little boring, lots of dialogs that I can’t hear, so I think I’ll just do a fast-forward… Now the protagonist is beating the hell out of a guy. At the end it looks like he is not very happy about it, maybe he broke some bushido code or something. Seems like he now asks to restrain him or make him forget how to inflict damage so that he never ever does that again. The wish is granted, and he’s no longer able to harm people. Serves him well.
And looks like it worked too because now the same two guys seem to have a calm conversation. The vis-a-vis asks to return something. He shows an object as a sample, like, "I want another one of these". Oh, wait, actually he wants an object from a pair which looks exactly the same… Luckily, the protagonist has it and willingly gives it back. Now the vis-a-vis has the full set, I hope this makes him happy.
Hey, the protagonist no longer harms people, and he gave away what he took, so why are they dumping him in the sewers? Oh, I see, he’s using the tubes to secretly get to his home and then succumb to sleep for a long, long time. Something tells me that someone also cast a sleeping spell on him.
And a good one at that, because the protagonist actually seems to have overslept: he’s quietly breaking into the office through the window and trying to secretly sneak to his desk. Something tells me that the guy is new here. Maybe he doesn’t want to violate his probation period rules? Looks like no one has noticed, phew! At the end of the day, the guy comes home, chats with his new friends on the Internet and goes to sleep. I like happy-ends!
Hold on, there’s an after credits scene! Wait, a woman in the headlights? Okay, I don’t think I’d miss something important if I skip this. Who watches these after credits scenes, anyway?
That sums it up. Maybe you can help me figure out what was going on in this movie?
