The year 2022 is almost half way through, and there are few Hollywood masterpieces. However, the gangster suspense film “vow not to bow down” makes people suddenly see! Compared with the title directly translated from “suit”, I prefer “swear not to bow down”. After all, there is no thrilling and exciting grand gunfight scene, and there are no shocking special effects. It is amazing because of the turning point of high IQ!
Leonard, a British tailor, encountered several waves of gangs late at night. The old man fought with each other and escaped safely. Such a conventional suspense film is not only classical and exquisite, but also full of twists and turns. It shows that director Graham Moore, who won the Oscar for best screenplay with imitation game, really has two brushes!
As a masterpiece of indoor crime, marklilance, who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for “bridge of spies”, took the lead alone. His energetic performance was the most amazing.
After all, the Mafia family used his shop to transmit information. The female assistant was an undercover. The old tailor he played didn’t care at all. He was elegant, wise and hidden in the market!
Leonard seems to be a bald old tailor who is weak, helpless and harmless to humans and animals, but he is a peerless expert who is thoughtful, courageous and resourceful, just like a ruthless character in a martial arts novel!
Late one night, the gangster and the injured young master came to the tailor’s shop. The other held a pistol and forced the old tailor to help. It’s easy to wait for the horse to leave for a while. The old tailor faces the gangster young master and is in danger all the time.
The young master who had woken up chatted with the old tailor while he was waiting. The old man said solemnly while sewing his clothes: “the traitor is me!”
The two men burst out laughing, because the young master knew that he was joking, but the old man, who had no strength to bind the chicken, immediately said, “Ma Zai said he would go to investigate the traitor, but if the traitor was him, why should he go to investigate the traitor?” When Ma Zai came back, he stirred up dissension in his words and got away for himself.
With the old man’s careful brainwashing and embellishment, the contradiction between the gangster young master and Ma Zai successfully escalated, and they began to quarrel and infighting. Finally, Ma Zai shot the gangster young master with his own pistol and had to hide his body hastily.
Unexpectedly, the gang leader came to look for his son when he heard the news, and Ma Zai took the opportunity to kidnap an innocent female assistant, so the old man could only cooperate with him to lie, but he must have heard something wrong.
At the critical moment, the telephone rang. The old tailor knew that the door was opened, but he lied that it was the gang master who opened it. He also said that he was being chased by other gangs and asked his father to save him. The old tailor quietly sent the boss into an ambush. Although some big men can bully others, they lack intelligence and are easy to die.
In the face of the threat from the horse, the old man hastily advised him. After all, the boss and his son are dead, so aren’t you the boss of the family? When we get rid of the gangs, you will be the boss of the Chicago gangs?
When the black female gang leader came with two, the seemingly ordinary old tailor sold out the gang horse he wanted to ambush, and was directly knocked down by two attendants.
The female gang leader took away the important audio tapes. Unexpectedly, the FBI insider was behind the mantis catching cicadas and yellow finches, and witnessed the old tailor’s famous saying: “although some people are customers, they are not good people!”
This film is not a perfect work, just like the female employee who was scared to be submissive and scared too much in front, but later became a “mouse” (undercover) and took away the tape. There was also the horse who fell to the ground after being shot. He got up and had a hand to hand fight with the old tailor. All of them were fighting for the sake of fighting, creating a climax war and fire.
One night, the place was a tailor’s shop, but it fully accommodated the infighting between the two gangs and the FBI undercover, as well as the cheating, fighting and disputes in the Jianghu. The seemingly innocent and dull old tailor finally ran away smoothly by relying on Li daitaojiang, catching turtles in a jar, and killing people with a knife. The screenwriter was really excellent!
Nowadays, most of the entertainment blockbusters in Hollywood are boring and boring! “Swear not to bow down” is a masterpiece of high IQ crime suspense, which can definitely give people a different sense of surprise!
