This year’s male frequency S+drama is just a few, but “Snow in Snow” can be described as the finale. It is another cooperation between the screenwriter Wang Tired and the actor Zhang Ruohuan, the screenwriter of the explosive male frequency drama “Qing Yu Nian”, and the top -flow work in male frequency novels is also adapted.

“Snow in Snow” is a masterpiece of the beacon princes. From 2012 to 2016, it serialized on the Chinese website, with a total of more than 4.5 million words in the book. In the male frequency online writers, the status of the beacon drama princes is comparable to that of cats, I eat tomatoes, Tang family San Shao, and silkworm potatoes. “是” is equivalent, all of which are classic works in the Internet.

As an oriental fantasy novel, “Snow in Snow” uses a fantasy shell to complete the return of martial arts novels, and successfully shaped a bloody, affectionate and righteous, and at the same time. The rivers and lakes in the book are not the rivers and lakes of “martial arts”, and the rivers and lakes of “people”. The novel portrayed the vivid portrait of the character. Their chivalry may not be reflected in some grand concepts or demands. “The promise and waiting deeper into the depths, although the nine died, did not regret it. Therefore, unlike the simple and rude “refreshing” of ordinary male frequency novels, “The Swords in the Snow” always have a literati.

However, unlike the previously acclaimed “Qing Yu Nian”, the adaptation of “Snow in Snow” has caused greater controversy. Is “Snow in Snow”?

Martial arts: How realistic, freehand as a “flower shelf”

After the “Snow in Snow” was broadcast, the martial arts part was almost a bad review.


For a film and television drama with martial arts souls, the weight of the martial arts/play is flat with the weight of the opera. Martial arts have aesthetic independence, and it can bring rich sensory stimuli to the audience; further to say, martial arts are also “writing people”. A very simple example is that Xiao Feng in “Tianlong Babu” is the eighteen palm of the dragon. , Not the six veins. Some audiences will be fantasy or whatever, even if they are fantasy, the weight of the martial arts is pivotal even if it is fantasy.

Divided in the simplest way, martial arts have two types: “realistic” and “freehand”. Realistic, more biased towards the traditional martial arts display. This is why many action movies were called “kung fu films” in the past. What they pursued was really falling, fist -to -meat, and realistic, tough, solid, and full of sense of power.

Freehand martial arts also have a long history. If it is said that realism reflects “human” nature, then freehand reflects “non -human”, or “divine nature”, because the action in freehand is not human can be completed, such , Anti -eaves walking wall, dengyun driving fog, sword light fighting, thunder in palms, etc. It requires a lot of achievements such as compression and special effects. The aesthetic effect is naturally more diverse, and it emphasizes elegance, beauty, chic …

In the shooting method, the freehand scene is richer than realistic -realism is mainly medium and long shots to express the real sense of fighting; freehand uses in the distance, full, medium, near, and special use. Depending on the sense of truth, but focusing on the wonders of the action of God. As a result, the breakpoint editing of freehand martial arts (only presents, falls, and results) and upgrade photography (that is, slow movements) are used frequently.

Today, the reliable martial arts opera is mainly a combination of realism and freehand. It has a clear trick, which makes the martial arts feel solid and breaks through the restrictions of “people”.

When I arrived in “Snow in the Snow”, I was rarely realistic, and there was no contact with the fighting scene. For example, the opening of the Nangong servant shot (Zhang Tianai) appeared and swept lightly, and everyone fell down; even more outrageous, someone attacked at night, the Nangong servant flew over, the hillside empty mirror and the background sound of the fight, She flew back again, and the fighting scene was over. The director’s original intention is to reflect “leaving white”, but leaving white is not equal to “blank”. Otherwise, is it called “martial arts”?

“” Is all down, you don’t need to fight


The martial arts in “Snow in Snow” highlights freehand. However, its expression of “freehand” is relatively single, almost all slow movements+close -ups, the “three lens” editing of the action, the action point, and the action result of the action are basically its complex action design … Although it is supplemented by the melodious pipa It is quite artistic, but the too simple martial arts can’t stand it, and the freehand is reduced to “flower shelf”.


Inexplicable close -up


Episode 6 The fight between Jiuhuang and Chu slave is another heavy martial arts opera. The sound effect is excellent, but there is no real action. … it feels very “virtual”.


Action scene still depends on POSE

Martial arts occasionally “okay.” For example, the 14th episode of Li Chunxuan still has no move against the Red Armor, but with the different speed and effects of water droplets in the rain, it is a bit imaginative to express the martial arts mood.

The action scene in this rain is okay

Literary Opera: The level of Wang tired online

The martial arts of “Snow in Snow” are “not too good”, but some of its literary opera can be supported in general. Wang Tired is still the first candidate for male frequency IP.

The world view of the drama is the chaos in the world, and the country disputes. From the break from the Yang Dynasty, we wiped out the eight nations and achieved a unified potential. Among them, most of them contributed to the iron riding in the North, and it was the world with the invincible potential. Among them, Wang Xu Xiao (Hu Jun) of the Bei Yan was the best.

Xu Xiao (Hu Jun)

The leader of the Gonggao Zhen must be afraid of the emperor. The emperor first wanted to assign the princess Xu Xiao to Xu Fengnian (Zhang Ruoyin) to restrain the north. In order to avoid the marriage of the royal family, Xu Fengnian, who was nearly and weak, was traveling in the rivers and lakes under his father’s arrangement for three years.

Xu Fengnian (Zhang Ruohuan) traveled for the first time, unkempt

Xu Fengnian also always showed people with the face of his children. This is naturally that he is dressed as a pig to eat tigers. In fact, Xu Fengnian is very smart.


Xu Fengnian after returning to Beibei

The forces of all parties did not give up the defeat of Beibei. Therefore, as soon as the episode came up, Xu Fengnian, who returned from the tour, encountered three assassinations: there was a soldier of the Chu State, the interception of the road; the fish Youwei Wei, the dance sword hidden; The set also started the first main line, that is, the power conspiracy line, and the power of all parties was expanded, and the game bureau gradually became clear.


The most afraid of the conspiracy line is too simple, logical, and the protagonist’s halo, but “The Swords in the Snow” have at least avoided these martial arts. For example, Xu Fengnian’s “bitter meat plan” was suddenly known by Chen Zhibao (Gao Weiguang); Xu Fengnian pumped the cocoon and finally found the black hands behind the scenes. In fact, his father had controlled everything long ago. The opponent is a chess piece … Even Xu Feng’s traveled three years was shocked, because his father arranged the four dead men of A, Badin, and the top masters by Xu Fengnian — both top masters and two died. Xu Fengnian did not realize it. Native

There are always people who crushed Xu Fengnian, which greatly suppressed the “brainless” refreshing feeling, and the multiple reversal also made the line of power ups and downs.

The main disadvantage of “Snow in Snow” is that in order to create a comedy effect, there are too many nonsense. It is often a nonsense debate of “Qi Qi”, which is like scenario comedy. There is less nonsense, faster rhythm, and the pitch will be more exciting.


Another main line of the episode is the growth line of the actor Xu Fengnian.

Xu Fengnian was inadvertent at the beginning, and he did not want to inherit his father’s great career. The first hurdle he grew up was that he took the initiative to practice martial arts, which also meant that he realized his responsibility and herself as a son -he did not want to bear it, but his identity and status, the choice of the person he loved, the choice of the person he loved, the choice of the person he loved The sacrifice allows Xu Fengnian to be involved in the dispute between Chaotang and the rivers and lakes, and carry responsibilities.


The presentation of the opportunity to change Xu Fengnian in the play is persuasive. There are at least two levels. The first level is Xu Fengnian and his younger brother Xu Longxiang (Rongzi Sushan). They are supported by the two forces of the North Army. That is, those who are interested will leave their brothers. After all, King Bei can only have one, either Xu Fengnian was killed and Xu Longxiang was controlled; either the solution given by his father, abolished Xu Longxiang’s natural power, and let Xu Longxiang be a peaceful ordinary ordinary. People, the military forces will not fight Xu Longxiang’s mind. If Xu Fengnian wants to protect his younger brother, he must be able to shake the group of ambitious people. He must avoid his father as “chess”.

In order to Xu Fengnian and Bei Yan, Xu Xiao can “sacrifice” Xu Longxiang (Huang Man’er)


The second level is the death of Lao Huang (Yang Haoyu). Lao Huang hidden his first -class swordsman’s identity, always protecting Xu Fengnian. The two master and servants traveled together for three years. In order to “pave the way” to Xu Fengnian, Lao Huang faced Wang Xianzhi, who was the first in martial arts in the world, and finally faced the north and died of exhaustion. After Xu Fengnian learned, he was sad.


Old Huang died

Finally, Xu Feng was determined to learn martial arts. He no longer hoped that he would encounter such a situation in the future. Others would sacrifice for him, but he couldn’t do anything.

After that, Xu Fengnian promised to take over Beibei, instead of being a righteousness in the world, it is better to say that he just wants to protect the person he wants to protect. He is affectionate and righteous. Is he no overall view? Not. When Xu Xiao took him to visit the tablet of 600 British souls, Xu Xiao told him that there must be sacrifice in the realization of the righteousness, but Xu Fengnian said that he would find the third way. The world is the world of the world; there is love and righteousness, and there is the world. His inheritance and change really kicked off.


Xu Fengnian is going to get out of a way that is different from Xu Xiao

At this point, Xu Fengnian finally completed the transformation and growth of the first stage. His growth context is very clear, and it is also reasonable. It is not bad to see. Zhang Ruohuan’s interpretation is passed. Zhang Ruohuan’s image is clear and handsome, you have a sense of teenagers, you can be funny or thoughtful, and have a high degree of matching with Xu Feng.

Men’s frequent female characters are always single. Jiang Ni (Li Gengxi) is very cute, but some thin, sometimes very naive (such as naive assassination), and say that she and Xu Fengnian are destined to be separated from life and death, it seems that this person is a bit “split”. But in general, the group portraits in the play are generally memory points, especially Xu Xiao played by Hu Jun is very exciting, and it is limited to the length.


Ginger mud is controversial

After the “Snow in Snow” was broadcast, the martial arts (or playing, action drama) were almost a bad review, coupled with some relaxed rhythm, persuading a lot of audiences. This is regrettable, because Wang’s ability is online, but how to remedy the drama later, the audience who abandoned the drama may not come back. This is a very painful lesson for long videos: the first three episodes must be supported, and the rhythm must not be dragged. I hope that there will be a greater improvement in the subsequent reputation, which can pull back the audience who lost.
