Since the U.S. began broadcasting in 2001, drama series has been hugely popular not only country in the world "24 TWENTY FOUR" has finally reached the final season. While serving as a producer of this film, the hero struggles to protect America from terrorists, Kiefer Sutherland plays Jack Bauer has continued, to think of this work has been involved for years, the film finally starts talked about the project.
■ taken every day of the termination, it was full of heart
Q: How about Japan a long time?
What I just arrived yesterday, and I walked alone in the Roppongi district last night. I have to buy shaving cream was not brought to the United States. Trouble at all knowing that the Japanese, the Japanese people for helping me know. So with confidence, you're wonderful to walk out of the country at night.
Q: "24 TWENTY FOUR" has won it great popularity in Japan
It was this work produced over the years, my career and I think was very big in my life. The continued so far, but there was a success from abroad, was hit in Japan since the big opportunity. Without the popularity in this country, I think a big thing in Asia was. So the Japanese fans, I convey the feeling of gratitude from the heart.
Q: Now that the season is complete, please let us know that feeling
I'm proud of every season. Only human, of course, there is also a part called a little better this way, but I look back now if they also had.
Q: The last day of shooting, I remember how it was Rasshaimasu feel?
Six months of filming for the last day, and I was mentally prepared for a long time. And crew of this drama, I have been working together since the first season, with 16 marriages between them, 30 babies were born. From all that has been witnessed, there were more than they're family to me. So when all the shooting, when a word of thanks for telling the crew was just full of heart. Not only may miss the end of this drama, I'm also very painful farewell to everyone in the crew.
■ torture scenes are mentally exhausted
Q: a man named Jack Bauer, do not exist for you?
I love how Jack is a different culture, I'm being too sympathetic to the people of different language speaking countries. And both have been torn between work and family like him, who think the situation so that we can not want for himself, I think that any country as well. The place where the gray area in such a desperately hard for him, I think the sympathy of the audience called, myself, as a man, I felt as an actor very attractive.
Q: Throughout the season, you learn from this drama for?
The normal film and theater, I'll work for every character type change significantly. But the drama played by the same person through several seasons, and I very little change. But in this series, I brought many changes to the inner surface of things happened around him in the play Jack. It is the same life. While eight of the season, more than 100 such changes, his personality began to change. Such experiences will gradually add weight to the role, changing the approach, it was very interesting from an actor was the first time in my life.
Q: I watch this series, as Jack would be able to feel anything. He also played in the field after you feel like that for?
In the field many times I repeat the same actions over and over again. So when you have finished shooting another in the exhausted, but I just want to go home. It is a big difference with what Jack and me. But certainly, I feel like it was a moment many times. And run through the inside of the blast, and I was released to the brink of exploding bombs, I feel it becomes stronger than usual about his.
Q: I have become the talk of the violent torture scenes, the play was hard to do?
Oh I did not particularly tough scene. Bullying behavior and the other called for more than 12 hours, pull out, I get mentally exhausted. So all I had to learn to control his mental state.
In the movie ■, Jack trapped in a terrible state it!
Q: I was a fan I also miss Jack's romance, for love of his circumstances did you think?
His biggest tragedy, a woman he loved everybody ought to have great people, I'm all I think it eventually lost. So one of the girls alone, I think Jack wanted to be happy.
Q: Some Japanese businessmen are busy no time to make love! Some people say, I'm Jack is in love no matter how busy.
I do, "supposed to be yours in a little later they die, just find a person you want to kiss!" There was a philosophy called love. Japanese businessmen are surely busy on par with Jack I think it should not look for a chance to love you when you are riding all Ta even Electro. You're not sure where the girl trapped forever!
Q: In the final season, I have come into contact with grandchildren, Jack scene. Yourself as well, but I have grandchildren, How did they play?
From about 5 seasons, the mood had become quite dark drama, Son Rui Akira It was really there. Jack (the daughter) did not give it to Kim, I think that Shiteyaritai grandchildren. The role of the child was a girl from a cute little grandson, and her scenes they enjoyed playing it. Since my daughter has already graduated from college, to play with crayons and drawing with the children, it was a long time.
Q: Interest in the final season?
Before making this season, and the writers decided, was to highlight the best I'll make every episode. So I think that making high-tension eyes off the screen can be about any moment. Especially the last episode, the crisis has come all the characters, I think that means they want to finish and enjoy!
Q: I looking forward to all the fans, please tell us about the film
While the series continues, even once thought about the film I did not. But now the season is over, we'll be moving towards full-fledged film. The big difference between film and television, the real progress for me, but I can not expand. Until now, the story had a time limit, I move that the United States to Japan in the play but it was impossible for example, in the film from becoming possible, and I think the more interesting around here.However, only one change in the expectations of everyone in the movie Jack that I'm trapped in a terrible state.
A long time in eight seasons, have played the words of Jack Bauer Kiefer, the staff, was full of love and work. Raised so far in this drama, the passion of his crew would love to and because there was. The series is now over, located in the passion he has not gone yet. Minutes traveling time limit has been removed, the potential in the film version of his head further spread said, seemed to her that he has already drawn on the screen by Jack. While looking forward to seeing Jack on the screen again, I want to experience the first shock of the final season!

A Final Farewell to 24: One of the Most Vital Shows of the Past Decade

24: A Final Farewell to 24
24There have been shows that were perhaps more culturally relevant than '24' during its nearly decade-long tenure, but few, if any, were more culturally reflective.

Now, what does "culturally reflective" mean? That doesn't mean that '24' was a somber think-piece of a drama. Far from it. What "culturally reflective" means is that it held up a mirror to what was going on in the zeitgeist of a post-9/11 world more directly than any other program on television. Other shows such as '
The Wire', 'Battlestar: Galactica' and even 'Lost' explored life in a post-9/11 in more metaphorical terms, but the political landscape played out much more directly on '24.'

'24' wasn't an intentional response to 9/11, but it did debut in the aftermath of it. As you might recall, its actual premiere was delayed because the first episode featured a massive plane explosion. That plane didn't crash into a building, but there was enough worry about people drawing comparisons between one and the other than Fox delayed the show a few months in order to lessen the parallel.

But a two-month wait didn't outlast the public's psychic shift, nor did it appease a latent (and not-so-latent) need for some type of revenge. In stepped Jack Bauer, a man who stood in as the representative of the country's need for action, for justice, for bucking bureaucracy in order to accomplish what needed to be done . For those that felt helpless, Jack was their onscreen avatar, hammering away one day at a time.

After the first season's success, the show spent the next few years replicating its essential formula while putting new faces on familiar threats. But by the end of the fourth season, '24' seemed to realize that things had to change, much in the way that the traditional view of the War on Terror had to change. So after four years of Jack-as-one-man-assault-squad, the effects of those years of violence started to weigh not only on those around him, but Jack himself. His self-imposed exile in the aftermath of infiltrating the Chinese consulate led to the shocking deaths of several key members of the '24' universe in the opening moments of season 5, setting up the show's greatest overall arc -- Bauer vs. Logan. The show that all but celebrated the American response to 9/11 just four years later made The President of the United States the freakin' Big Bad.

Over its final three seasons, '24' showed the limits of Jack's "torture first, ask questions later" approach, both on his ability to successfully overcome the threat at hand and his ability to maintain sanity in the process. '24' ultimately made Jack Bauer a martyr, a man that defended his homeland and ironically ended up without a home.

By doing so, they called into question the price that he paid for saving his country those eight times (and countless others off-screen as well). But they also called into question a country that needed a man like Jack Bauer to exist in the first place, a man that represented what we thought was our best but in many ways also represented our worst.

'24' may not have been the best show of the decade. But it very well may have been the most important. The symbiotic relationship between the show, its viewing audience and the ever-shifting realignment in a post-9/11 world will be studied for generations, making '24' one of the most vital shows of the past decade.

The Longest Day: Final Season of 24 Now Out on DVD

Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in an episode of "24" from season 7 - Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in an episode of "24" from season 7


The longest day: Final season of '24' now out on DVD

From Saturday's Globe and Mail Dec 18, 2010

Kiefer Sutherland enjoyed a memorable film career before starring in the TV series 24 – a vampire in The Lost Boys, a scientist with a Peter Lorre voice in Dark City – but it was as Jack Bauer that he really came into his own. He was the scrappy counterterrorism agent who could hold his own in the toughest scrapes and sound authoritative when he barked, “I’m going to cover you. You make a run for the door. You ready? Go! Go!” Now, with 24: Season 8 out on DVD and Blu-ray, he comes to the end of the run. On the ninth day, he gets to rest.

The premise was that 24 played out in real time, with each season adding up to 24 hours, though the days weren’t consecutive and it wasn’t clear what everyone did during commercials. Fortunately, the writers never picked a day when Bauer had the 24-hour flu, or just felt like crashing on the couch for an afternoon instead of crashing through a skyscraper window. No, it was always solve this political crisis, or avenge this murder, or that’ll teach you to trust anyone.
This time round, Bauer is called in to prevent the assassination of President Omar Hassan of Kamistan, who is on the verge of signing a peace treaty with U.S. President Allison Taylor. Bombs go off under cars, rockets blow up helicopters, and events get so complicated that even Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), who has always had Bauer’s back at the CTU, is beginning to suspect his intentions.
The series was set in Los Angeles for the longest time and journeyed to Washington for the seventh season, but it was moved for this final sprint to New York. Because the plot focuses on the United Nations, the headquarters of the Counter Terrorist Unit is conveniently located on Roosevelt Island, just a couple of underwater blocks from the UN through an abandoned subway tunnel. The gizmos in the CTU bunker include a video screen that can track anyone anywhere and measures 24 feet wide – “not by chance,” production designer Carlos Barbosa says in the bonus features.
There was a hitch, though. Financial constraints meant the producers had to shoot the show in Los Angeles, so background shots were filmed in New York, the actors stood before a green screen in L.A., and after a few licks of post-production it was hard to tell the difference. The sitcom Ugly Betty did the same thing for the first two seasons.
At least it’s easier to finesse the weather that way. The trouble with shooting a series over nine months that’s supposed to take place in a single day is that you have to make sure it doesn’t look as if New York is experiencing three seasons in one 24-hour period. That’s the global-warming crisis, and Bauer didn’t suit up for that one.
Also out this week is a box containing the entire run of the series, so if you’ve been collecting the seasons individually, you can buy them all over again. Not, alas, for $24.

Tony Scott Has Idea For 24: The Movie?

Tony Scott Has Idea For 24: The Movie? 
December 19, 2010 Matt Holmes
There’s no candidate more fitting to direct a film version of Fox’s 24 t.v. series than action maestro Tony Scott. Year in, year out he routinely makes frenetic, high-energy, mindlessly entertaining action vehicles that suits the thematics of the 24 show like a tailored glove.
Hell, the condensed time narrative of The Taking of Pelham 123 remake could have easily satisfied an episode or two of the show.
In fact you could probably argue that if it wasn’t for the signature Scott style from films like Top Gun, True Romance and Crimson Tide that the concept behind a lightning paced action show with literally a ticking clock wouldn’t even exist.
So the fresh rumour that Tony Scott has an idea for a film based on the now defunct show that he wants to pitch to Kiefer Sutherland and Fox, is interesting.
One of the show’s executive producers, Howard Gordon, has told Assignment X (via Moviehole) that he has heard;
The rumors are that [director] Tony Scott has an idea that he is going to run it by or has run it by Kiefer Sutherland. I don’t know what the status of it is.
Gordon goes on to say that the reason we haven’t seen a 24 film to date is because their current script isn’t “the right proposition. It wasn’t strong enough or compelling enough to the studio obviously to move ahead with it.”
That script was from Billy Ray and his track record of consistently producing strong and compelling work (the under-rated 2007 drama Breach which he wrote & directed, also the recent adaptation of State of Play) makes that statement seem so bizarre, but obviously Gordon is in a better position than me to know such things.
However he does go on to say;
The movie is something that right now I’m not engaged or involved in.
But with his close ties to the show, he’s more likely to know than most and if he says Tony Scott might have an idea, then who are we to doubt?
I really hope this rumour turns out to be true. Kiefer Sutherland deserves the chance to bring 24 to the big screen and Tony Scott could really do something special with the franchise. I just wonder what condensed narrative he has in mind, presumably it’s some kind of large terrorist attack?
Hopefully it involves Scott’s frequent star Denzel Washington playing the villain?
