Spiderman
Bounded world:
 The main character is isolated from help by physical circumstances and psychological isolated by
betrayal. We know the character Spiderman is already isolated as his parents have passed away and
he hasn’t ever seen them, furthermore his uncle also passes away later in the film. This builds up to
the main part of the film. We can infer that the way Peter Parker is at the moment he is very
isolated however he may have taken the “hero” Spiderman status in order to come over how he’s
isolated.
Timescape-
The extreme isolation from outside help enforces a short, but intense timeline as the main
characters fears overtake rational perception. The story line is short as most films that have a
tragedy films are.
Character Ethos –
A comparatively uninvolved character is drawn into an increasingly larger menace, and discovers
that the only way to remain alive is through self-reliance, by exposing the malevolent evil before it
can assault the larger community. Spiderman has to live in order to save the city from the demon
inside Dr Connor. By turning into Spiderman he can help the city and the environment around him
as his other character Peter Parker wouldn’t be able to.
Narrative trajectory –
The character has to be willing to stay alive as he has to destroy the protagonist Dr Connor in order
to for him to achieve the “hero” status. Therefore he fights of the antagonist risking his life as in
first thoughts it’s seemed to have looked as if the protagonist was too weak for the antagonist.
Taken
Bounded World-
the main character is isolated from help by physical circumstances and pshycollogically isolated by betrayal. His
doesn’t know what his daughter is doing in paris until she calls him. There is also a sense of isolation towards him
when the Albanians kidnap kim and he has to hear everything that’s happening through her phone. In order to save
his daughter he goes on a mission to save his daughter. As he is an specialist in the CIA skills department he goes by
his self to find his daughter and isolates him self from the rest of the world. His only target is to find his daughter.
Timescape-
the extreme isolation from outside help enforces a short, but intense timeline as the main characters fears overtake
rational perception. Kim returns to her dad only after a few days. As in the film its said that he only has like 3 days to
find her and if he doesn’t then it would be impossible to find her so he had to do it in a short period of time.
Character Ethos –
A comparatively uninvolved charater is drawn into an increasingly larger menace, and discovers that the only way to
remain alive is through self-reliance, by exposing the malevolent evil before it can assault the larger community. Peter
is a character who traffics womenglobally for someone in Albania . he targets young women who go on holidays in
local small areas. We can later on tell that the person he works for has a very high powerful status in Albania and also
many members in his group in order to make a successful ileagal business.
Narrative trajectory-
The character has the willingness to stay alive in order to save and protect his daughter. He travels to paris from
america soon as he finds out from his daughter that shes in trouble, he traces the kidnappers and from there on Brian
has to face many obstacles in order to save kim. Furthermore he has to risk his life to get her back and he also fights
for his life to get her back, therfore we know that he has to willingness to stay alive so he can get take kim home. One
of his biggest obstacles was the ship in paris that had kim inside it, taking her away with the sheik she had been sold
to. Luckily Brian defeats the villains and brings her back home after putting his life on the line for his daughter kim.
