After one last encounter with Big Boss, Snake chose to live his remaining days in peace. In , Solid Snake was foreseen in a prophetic vision by Elisa and Ursula as the son of Big Boss that would "save the world. In , David and his twin brother Eli were born as a result of the secret government project "Les Enfants Terribles," [7] designed to create the perfect soldier, using the genes of the "Greatest Warrior of the 20th Century" Big Boss.

The twins were also to serve as an insurance policy for the Patriots , should Big Boss abandon their organization. Using the process of somatic cell nuclear transfer , eight clone embryos were created by inserting Big Boss's DNA into enucleated egg cells, donated by a healthy Japanese woman. The two clones were also modified on the genetic level, with one clone expressing Big Boss's dominant genetic traits and the other expressing Big Boss's recessive traits.

Nine months later, the twins were born and would later receive the codenames of Solid Snake and Liquid Snake. Following his birth, Solid Snake was given the name David. He spent his early life being raised in the United States by a variety of foster parents. During the war, some U. After infiltrating the fortress via an underwater insertion, he learned from the various prisoners of war after freeing them that Fox was being held in a high level prison cell in the basement, and the only way to find him was to get himself captured.

Drago Pettrovich Madnar , to find a way to destroy it. With the help of resistance members Schneider , Diane , and Jennifer , Snake succeeded in rescuing Dr. Just as he was making his escape, Snake discovered that his mission commander, Big Boss, was secretly the leader of Outer Heaven, and was apparently confronted by the man himself within the fortress's th floor basement. He also chose to abandon the CQC techniques taught to him by Big Boss, due to its association with the man who had betrayed his unit. Snake was later scouted by the CIA and spent six months as an undercover agent, until he became dissatisfied with the organization and left.

He then became a mercenary for hire, and after earning enough money, he went into semi-retirement in the Canadian wilderness. Apparently, a new highly militarized nation called Zanzibar Land had kidnapped Dr. Not only that, but a new Metal Gear was believed to be under development in Zanzibar Land. Snake accepted the mission, in part to end the nightmares that he had endured since Operation Intrude N Snake's mission objectives were to infiltrate the seemingly impenetrable wall that surrounded Zanzibar Land, and to recover Dr.

Snake succeeded in the first task, but complications arose when one of his allies in the mission, a CIA war coverage spy named Holly White blew her cover, and required rescuing. After freeing Holly, Snake learned how to contact Dr. Marv by radio, but after discovering that he could only speak Czech and Slovakian, was forced to locate his STB bodyguard Gustava Heffner.

Drago Pettrovich Madnar, resulting in both Gustava and Dr. Marv's death. As the man behind Zanzibar Land's rise to power, Big Boss returned for a final battle against his former subordinate. Snake ultimately defeated Big Boss with a makeshift flamethrower , consisting of a lighter and lacquer spray. Despite promising to have Christmas dinner with Holly following the mission, [31] Snake stood her up and disappeared shortly afterwards. Campbell also implied that this was not the first time Snake disappeared without warning.

By this time, the military had deemed that Snake had committed several acts of misconduct during his career, enough for him to serve a lengthy prison sentence, should he be brought to account. During this time, he began heavily drinking. Solid Snake during the Shadow Moses Incident in In February , Snake was called back to the U.

Unhappy at how Campbell had sent armed soldiers after him and had his personal effects confiscated, Snake reluctantly accepted the assignment on the condition that he only take orders from Campbell, and that he be given full disclosure of all mission information. Due to his resemblance to the terrorist leader Liquid Snake , Solid Snake had his hair cut shortly before departing to Shadow Moses, to avoid being mistaken for him. Army and ArmsTech. Although he largely was in shape for the mission, he did end up exhausted after climbing the flight of stairs up to Tower A's roof, causing Campbell to briefly joke that Snake's mushing had him get out of shape.

However, he ended up being tricked into activating Metal Gear due to misinformation supplied by Liquid who had infiltrated Snake's support group by posing as Master Miller, having had him murdered three days prior. Snake soon learned that the mission had been a cleverly woven plot, prepared by the Pentagon. Snake was outraged to hear that his mission was a government conspiracy, and that he was merely sent as a carrier of the virus, which was programmed to kill Baker for knowing too much about the project , and the FOXHOUND operatives just to ensure that the bodies of the Genome Soldiers and Metal Gear REX could be recovered undamaged.

He was also reminded of the possibility that he had willingly returned to the battlefield because he enjoyed war, as commented upon by Meryl, Psycho Mantis , and Liquid Snake, and echoing Big Boss's words in Zanzibar Land. Throughout the incident, Snake suspected that Campbell was concealing important information regarding the mission's true nature, although he later forgave Campbell after learning that the Pentagon had used Meryl as leverage in order to force him to cooperate with them as they had deliberately sent Meryl to Shadow Moses the same day as the revolt.

However, she set the virus to a "wildcard" value, leaving him vulnerable at a later time. This cover story was short lived, assuming it fooled anyone at all. Following the Shadow Moses Incident, Snake and Meryl disappeared after leaving the base, after Campbell faked their deaths by claiming that they had died after their jeep crashed into the ocean. Sometime later, Snake lost contact with Meryl. Because of his exploits at Shadow Moses, he also became a hero to the public, which greatly concerned the Patriots. President George Sears , for whom he had acted as a spy throughout the entire incident.

He informed Sears, that it was the inferior clone Solid Snake, who had survived, stating that Liquid had wrongly believed himself to be inferior right until his death. Three weeks after the Shadow Moses Incident, Naomi escaped from confinement at a high-security facility during debriefing due to someone breaking her out.

As Nastasha Romanenko and the U. Government believed Snake to have been the one who broke her out in actuality, it was Liquid Ocelot who did the deed , the U. With the goal of eradicating all Metal Gear technology, Snake participated in investigating its development across the world, often by illegal means, which Philanthropy then exposed to the public via the Internet.

Around , Snake also began suffering the effects of accelerated aging. In August , Otacon received a tip from his estranged stepsister Emma Emmerich that a new Metal Gear was being developed by the United States Marine Corps , and was being transported via a Marine vessel disguised as an oil tanker. Snake quickly made his way into the tanker's holds and, as per his mission objectives, secured photographic evidence of the new Metal Gear. Neither he nor Otacon could have predicted the reappearance of Revolver Ocelot on the tanker, who proceeded to detonate Semtex explosives onboard the ship in order to sink it.

While attempting to stop Ocelot, Snake was confronted by the spirit of his deceased brother Liquid Snake, who had apparently taken over the mind of Ocelot through an arm transplant Liquid's arm having been grafted onto Ocelot, to replace the hand he lost at Shadow Moses. Snake's presence had seemingly released Liquid's personality, who went on to comment that he had evaded the accelerated aging that Snake was now undergoing.

The two also rescued Olga, and, taking advantage of the situation, decided to fake Snake's death by using the corpse of Liquid Snake as a decoy. Thanks to the photographs taken by a U. Army Cypher , the Patriots framed Solid Snake and Philanthropy in a smear campaign for the tanker sinking, simultaneously exposing them to the public and destroying their reputation. It was widely believed that Snake had been killed in the incident, after Liquid's body was retrieved from the New York Harbor, its genetic similarity to Snake's providing apparent confirmation.

In April , Snake had received Intel that a new Metal Gear was being developed at the Big Shell offshore facility, which was occupied by the Sons of Liberty , composed of the remnants of the GRU unit and other unidentified soldiers. Feeling that he had been in hiding long enough, Snake infiltrated the Big Shell by cutting a hole into the oil fence. He later knocked out several Gurlukovich sentries in the deep sea dock, and ascended to the roof of Strut A by elevator; Raiden , who had infiltrated shortly after Snake, briefly saw him, though his back was turned.

Raiden was nearly attacked by Vamp, but only received a scratch from a bullet grazing his face thanks to an intervention from Pliskin. Vamp then went to attack Pliskin, but stopped short, remarking that Pliskin smelled just like " him. Pliskin told Raiden about Vamp's origins, as well as Dead Cell, though he wasn't able to continue on because he needed a few moments to recover from Vamp's attack, having become disorientated from blood loss.

However, he also exaggerated slightly to Raiden, as he intended to go separate ways and watch him from afar, until he could gauge whether Raiden was trustworthy enough for him to ally with. Pliskin then left to begin his bomb disposal of Shell 2, and located: the first C4 on the Strut H heliport behind some cargo; the second C4 on the ceiling of another strut which required him to get onto a stand to reach it with the coolant spray ; the third C4 planted on the back of a Gurlukovich mercenary; the fourth C4 in an area so narrow he needed to crawl inside to reach it; and the fifth C4 that required a much closer inspection to locate.

Raiden also briefly witnessed the same man in a cardboard box, and called Pliskin about it and inquired if the man in the cardboard box was a member of Dead Cell, unaware at the time that Pliskin had been that man in question. At some point later, Pliskin was contacted by Peter Stillman and requested that he investigate Shell 2 in case there were C4 planted that the C4 sensors couldn't pick up.

Pliskin managed to stumble upon a large cache of C4 explosives that both were vapor-sealed and didn't contain any of Fatman's cologne, at the bottom of Strut H, and contacted Stillman and Raiden. However, he also ended up inadvertently activating the same C4 cache when he disarmed the last of Shell 2's decoy C4 explosives due to the same cache being rigged to activate when all of the decoy C4 were disarmed. Pliskin ended up knocked out in the resulting explosion shortly after Stillman's final message warning Pliskin and Raiden about the proximity microwave trigger with a seven foot two meter radius, on the C4.

He ended up surviving the blast with the help of Otacon. In addition, after Raiden questioned him about toxins being released after Shell H was heavily damaged, Pliskin revealed he never heard of that and decided to investigate, also revealing that Shell 2 did not contain any hostages, meaning they were most likely in Shell 1. He also implied that saving U. Afterwards, acting on Raiden's tip, Pliskin conducted a thorough investigation of Shell 2, and managed to hijack a Kasatka helicopter, with Otacon acting as pilot. Afterwards, he then briefly introduced Raiden to Otacon, via Codec, although they had to cut the meeting short when Pliskin had to fight off several Gurlukovich Mercenaries who had spotted them and attacked.

Snake eventually met his genetic brother, the terrorist leader Solidus Snake , though he refused to acknowledge him as such. He also once again met Olga and explained to her that it was in fact Revolver Ocelot who had killed her father Sergei. Blade, and despite not being "a big fan of blades," he instructed Raiden on how to use it. He and Raiden then fought their way through an army of Arsenal Tengu soldiers. They were both eventually split up from one another, with Snake being captured by Fortune and brought to the top of Arsenal.

But before he could kill them, Ocelot's right arm began to twitch, and Liquid Snake possessed him once more, revealing that he had leaked the information about Arsenal Gear to lure Snake out to the Big Shell so that Snake could "free him [Liquid]. Although Snake failed to stop RAY, he placed a tracker on the Metal Gear and explained later to Raiden that his plan was for him to find the Patriots by deciphering the source code of Emma's worm cluster, admitting that the disc they gave Raiden was a decoy.

He also declined Raiden's request to help Snake in Philanthropy and save Olga's child , as he suspected that even after the S3 Plan was complete, the Patriots would still monitor Raiden's vital signs and thus place Sunny in further danger of being killed should he try to help, and also hinted that Rosemary did indeed exist and that he should maintain his relationship to her before joining.

He then slipped away unnoticed to Otacon's car and left, being long gone by the time Raiden remembered about Snake. However, Snake eventually deduced that the information was a fake lead or as he put it, five years later, "a load of crap". His body began to age rapidly, with no doctors being able diagnose the cause. In addition, in , although Snake had earlier promised Raiden that he would rescue Sunny from the Patriots, he wasn't able to get that chance, and ended up receiving Sunny via Raiden albeit covertly on the latter's part.

By , Otacon and the various doctors who treated Snake estimated that Snake's life span would be a year at best. Sometime prior to , the Pentagon declassified documents relating to Big Boss's exploits during the s , which evidently contributed greatly to his legend to the populace, and his CQC was also being taught in the military. Otacon initially believed that Snake lifted his self imposed ban to show them how it's really done but Snake corrected him and said his body just simply reacts with the "real deal" when he sees their "cookie cutter imitation" coming at him and adopted the use of a stun knife.

It was not until that Snake, now occasionally referred to as Old Snake , resurfaced for a final time. With PMCs now taking over the world's armies in terms of firepower, Liquid was finally on the verge of world domination. With the world once again in crisis, Snake was dispatched to the Middle East as a personal favor to Campbell to assassinate Liquid.

Snake successfully made it to the PMC base that Liquid was using as his headquarters by disguising himself as a militia instructor for the militia in the region fighting off the Praying Mantis PMC, although he briefly lost the disguise after an ambush by several Gekko units, escaping with the use of his new OctoCamo suit.

He also briefly witnessed the Beauty and the Beast unit when they wiped out a Middle Eastern militia platoon. However, he failed to assassinate Liquid in time due to the latter's sudden deactivation of the Sons of the Patriots system , which resulted in all the soldiers in the vicinity to experience mass convulsions from the sudden release of emotions, including Snake himself, although he was affected to a lesser degree.

SOP was run by the Patriots with the purpose of monitoring and controlling every soldier engaged in combat action. Liquid's plan was to remove the system altogether, though his initial attempt had unforeseen consequences, when it caused the PMC's Middle Eastern base to descend into chaos although the chaos unknowingly saved him from Snake's mission to kill him. The message contained a distress call as well as an encrypted map of Liquid's South American base in Soliton Radar format a sign from Naomi that it was truly from her , the location of which Olga's daughter Sunny was able to trace.

In addition, he was able to arrive at Liquid's base, located in a mountainous region implied to be the Andes surrounded by forests, by landing at the El Dorado International Airport with the cover job of a UN inspector as well as gaining a 4x4 vehicle, driving it as close to the security perimeter as he could before sneaking into the region, due to Roy Campbell's influence. Although Snake initially was to meet up with a rebel group to aid him in getting into Liquid Ocelot's primary base, the Vista Mansion, he was forced to change plans after Laughing Octopus murdered some rebel soldiers and spared one under the condition that he not forget "his" face Laughing Octopus having disguised herself as Old Snake via FaceCamo at that time.

Snake made it to the base where Naomi was held, and she gave him a thorough medical examination. It was during this that Snake discovered the harsh truth: his aging was not part of any external source, but the way he was designed as a clone, and also that the FOXDIE that Naomi injected him with almost a decade earlier will finally claim his life within six months. This was because the FOXDIE was also starting to mutate due to Snake's rapid aging, and would eventually lose its ability to kill by specific DNA patterns and indiscriminately infect anyone and everyone, effectively turning Snake into a walking biological weapon who could cause the deaths of millions.

Snake also learned from Naomi that he had a new FOXDIE strand that was injected into him recently, and immediately deduced that Drebin was the one who injected it into him. They also picked up Raiden, who was now a Cyborg Ninja. He also learned from Naomi that, despite what he and anyone else believed earlier, Solid Snake was neither a perfect clone of Big Boss nor was he genetically identical to Liquid Snake, which also explained why the previous FOXDIE virus was not able to kill him earlier.

Raiden explained that he was acting under the orders of Big Mama , the leader of a small resistance group in Eastern Europe. He then disguised himself as a civilian in Eastern Europe, also putting his FaceCamo to good use by giving himself a younger look, and was tasked to meet up with a contact that Campbell supplied. However, Raven Sword anticipated this move and made sure to blacklist him if he carried the same nanomachines, which nearly resulted in his cover being blown before his contact, Meryl, managed to get him through.

However, Snake and Meryl ended up getting into an argument regarding Liquid's threat level, as well as some of Snake's decisions. Due to her ties with Big Boss, she was able to explain most of the Patriots' history to him. She also revealed that she had Big Boss's body in her possession. After escaping an onslaught of Haven Troopers and defeating a second BB Corps member, Raging Raven , Snake found Liquid, who was in the midst of implementing the now perfected version of his plan.

Luckily, in the chaos, Otacon was able to stow the Mk. As a result of the chaos in the final legs of the mission, he also received severe burns to the left side of his face. However, he was unable to kill Liquid or stop him from stealing the rail gun in time, a prize which Liquid quickly equipped to his own recreation of Arsenal Gear, Outer Haven. Atop Outer Haven , Liquid revealed to Snake that he had wanted him to succeed in uploading the worm, and thus eliminate the Patriots' control, though he was unaware that the societal collapse, which he anticipated would come about, had been averted.

Snake faced his "brother" in hand-to-hand combat one last time, where it was revealed that Liquid Ocelot no longer possessed the right arm of Liquid Snake, but rather a cybernetic prosthetic instead. Snake ultimately defeated Liquid, with Ocelot's former personality temporarily reasserting control prior to his death. After performing his signature hand gesture and commenting, "You're pretty good," he passed away, having succumbed to the new FOXDIE virus within Snake's body.

He sat in front of Big Boss's grave with his gun in his mouth, but ultimately was unable to end his own life. Big Boss then appeared, returning the Patriot to the grave of The Boss and explained the full history of the Patriots from his point of view, and euthanized the now-vegetative Zero himself.

He also revealed to Snake that Revolver Ocelot was never truly possessed by Liquid, but had put himself through hypnotherapy and implanted himself with nanomachines in order to make himself "believe" that he was Liquid Snake. This was done to throw off the Patriots who, being a computer program, could only repeat the same processes and would send Snake in to take down Liquid if they thought he was alive. Succumbing to illness from exposure to the new FOXDIE strain, Big Boss finally made his peace with Snake and urged him to live out the rest of his days "not as a snake, but as a man.

Solid Snake, a hardened career soldier, often displayed a calm and collected demeanor, rarely showing any signs of fear in extreme circumstances. He buried his emotions deep inside himself, causing some to see him as cold and uncaring. Though mostly reserved, Snake showed some prominent change in his outlook towards life throughout the years. Big Boss's betrayal in and his battle to the death with Gray Fox and again with Big Boss in left a deep-seated emotional pain leading to PTSD, alcoholism and cynicism.

His reunion with Gray Fox at Shadow Moses, as well as his newfound friendship with Otacon and love towards Meryl, invigorated his desire to live. With Philanthropy, Snake aspired towards building a better future for the world by eradicating Metal Gears and liberating humanity from digital subjugation.

His accelerated aging, however, would create a morbid willingness to accept death as he was no longer exuberant in his words or actions in It was only by Big Boss's dying words that Snake was finally able to absolve himself of all guilt and torment and accept peace. Though he was born with what were known as Big Boss's "flawed recessive genes," he defeated Liquid Snake, the clone with the "dominant genes" on multiple confrontations in Unlike Liquid and Solidus who spent their lives under the pressure of Big Boss's legend, Snake did not burden himself with such weight and defiantly sought out a life of his own.

In the end, his indomitable will for justice made him the final survivor and victor among the clones because he lived through Naomi Hunter's theory spoken in Shadow Moses: not "to be chained to fate. Due to his extensive military background, Snake found his calling on the battlefield, having spent most of his life there, [51] and believed it was the only place where he felt truly alive. Snake was often flirtatious towards his female team members, [61] [62] [63] and expressed interest in intimate relationships on occasion, although he did not like getting involved with other people's lives and was a loner by nature, even going so far as to stand Holly White up despite promising to have Christmas dinner with her.

Snake was somewhat disapproving of May-December relationships, remarking that Rosemary was young enough to be Roy Campbell's daughter, upon learning of their apparent marriage. During the events of the Guns of the Patriots Incident, Snake calmly accepted the inevitability of his impending death. Because of this, he was more willing to risk his life, as demonstrated during the Missouri debriefing. However, he would often become annoyed upon being reminded of his accelerated age, once telling Otacon to "cut the senior citizen crap" and his psyche dropping at occasional moments when called "Old Snake.

Naomi stated an ordinary person wouldn't even be able to stand in his condition in and the only thing keeping him mobile, albeit limitedly, is his will. Big Boss noted that Snake had always fought for something more than himself. Big Boss also noted that if Snake had been in his place then the mistakes that he had made may not have come to pass.

Hope, despair and memory

By this time, Snake had also developed an apprehension to nanomachine injections, due to Naomi's betrayal at Shadow Moses, and initially refused to allow Drebin to administer a shot to him. Through years of training and experience, he developed heightened levels of endurance and reflexes, surviving prolonged periods of pain, [64] torture, [65] and narrowly evading numerous near-fatal incidents.

Snake was a heavy cigarette smoker. Snake didn't like being lectured on the dangers of smoking. During the same time, he often ignored the no-smoking policy onboard the Nomad , often resulting in Sunny telling him off when she found out or caught him in the act, once even having his cigarette confiscated and disposed of by Sunny before he could get the chance to smoke it. After sharing one last smoke with Big Boss, Snake decided to quit smoking. Snake likewise was not too keen with using bladed weapons, informing Raiden as much during the Big Shell Incident.

He did nonetheless have knowledge on how to use them, and in , he also utilized a stun knife during his operations. Snake did not possess any qualms for doing things that are normally considered unacceptable social behavior if it meant completing a mission. For example, Snake entered the women's bathroom in both the Zanzibar Land and the Shadow Moses facilities in order to find a disguised female contact Gustava Heffner and Meryl Silverburgh, respectively.

In the former instance, after Snake made contact with Dr. Marv, Dr. Madnar told Snake to look for Gustava there due to her disguise. Snake was fluent in six languages, including French. Conversely, his knowledge of computing was somewhat limited, often relying on more technical-minded allies to deal with such matters during missions. Snake did not believe in the supernatural; when Otacon explained the technology to attach to walls, he asked if Vamp could have used it during the Big Shell Incident.

Otacon said it was possible, and Snake said that Vamp was not supernatural and despite the visual evidence, believed that Vamp was not actually immortal. Of all the relationships Snake has had, his connection to Big Boss had the biggest impact on him. Big Boss saw great potential in Snake and personally trained him in advanced combat skills, particularly CQC. He even came to see him as a father figure, though not knowing that in truth he was Big Boss's clone.

It was only until after he discovered that Big Boss was behind the Outer Heaven incident that he lost his faith in him. He constantly struggled between respect and anger towards his former commander as he truly respected Big Boss. When Snake found out that Big Boss was actually the leader of Outer Heaven, he thought that this was unacceptable. Because of this, he refrained from using CQC for years. Moreover, he suffered greatly with the thought that he committed "patricide" despite being forced to save the world from a disaster.

Before Snake faced off with Liquid at Shadow Moses, he described Liquid's desire for re-creating Outer Heaven insane and pointless, calling it out as "Big Boss's fantasy". Snake struggled to understand Big Boss' true motive for two decades believing that his betrayal was based on foul intentions. Nevertheless, he could never truly give up his respect to the legendary soldier as he visited his grave and saluted it and later chose to end his life right then and there after destroying the Patriots.

After deciding against it at the last moment, Big Boss appeared. When he explained his reasons for his uprising in the s, Snake was finally able to find closure between their fates as old enemies. Snake described Gray Fox as his best friend and when he was a rookie he looked up to the only man to earn the code name "Fox". Much like Big Boss, Fox took on a mentor role in Snake's life. Fox was the one who "showed him the ropes" as he put it. Even during the fist fighting they had towards the end of Snake's mission, he still considered Fox as his friend.

Years later during the Shadow Moses Incident, when it was revealed Fox had survived his injuries as the Cyborg Ninja, Snake was horrified and felt nothing but remorse for what Fox had become. Fox would later go on to battle REX. In the end, however, he could not go through with it.

Fox's final words had a deep impact on Snake's personal beliefs to the point where he would echo them to Raiden years later during the Big Shell Incident. During the Shadow Moses Incident, Snake developed a powerful bond with Meryl, displaying uncharacteristic concern and care for her. When Otacon was willing to sacrifice himself so Snake and Meryl can escape, Snake fully respected him.

Following the Shadow Moses Incident, Snake and Otacon formed Philanthropy and developed a strong friendship, even creating their own personal handshake. When they returned to Shadow Moses and went to Otacon's office, where they first met, they looked back at how they met. Otacon was the only person Snake told about his plan to kill himself in order to prevent a FOXDIE outbreak and Otacon decided to stick with Snake to the day he died to pass his legacy and accomplishments with others. Just as Gray Fox did for him during Outer Heaven, Snake "showed the ropes" to Raiden, acting as a de facto mentor to the "rookie" and teaching him about his supplies and how to become a better soldier.

Despite this, Snake was willing to use Raiden to further his mission, allowing him to infiltrate Arsenal Gear more easily during the Big Shell Incident by having enemy forces capture him temporarily. Following the conclusion of the Big Shell Incident, Snake gave Raiden advice on how to live his life. Throughout Liquid Ocelot Insurrection, Snake was somewhat adamant about Raiden not fighting more than he was and for him to "not waste his youth" on fighting, as Snake believed that it wasn't Raiden's fight.

Snake tends to see Raiden as a whole as being an example of the "next generation" he's fighting for. While often condescending and harsh to Raiden during the Big Shell Incident, he's also trying his best during the end to give him a sense of identity and what he should be fighting for. Yet this had more of an influence in a way than he didn't intend and during his talks with Raiden, he carries a sense of regret that he wasn't a better teacher to him and that Raiden's life was made a living hell due to Snake's generation.

Liquid Snake was Snake's twin brother, one of his greatest rivals and one of his most dangerous enemies. Though Snake did seem to at the very least understand the motivation of Liquid's actions during the Shadow Moses Incident, in which Liquid wished to use the facility and Metal Gear REX to create eternal conflict in order for soldiers to be free from being pawns, he heavily disagreed with creating global widespread conflict to achieve this goal.

Of course, it all ends like any sisterly dispute: with a whopping great battle, although admittedly few arguments outside Wonderland also feature a Jabberwocky. What else would you expect from a film that acts as a distinctly underrated and definitely under-seen parody of biopics like Walk The Line and Ray? Especially when the bride-to-be has chosen a friend over her troubled, addict sister for maid of honour and said sis is released from rehab to attend….

All the performances are incredibly raw and honest, none more so than Hathaway, who was handed an Oscar nomination for her unflinching portrayal of a young woman haunted by her past and scared by her future. Soon, only two are left in the running. Squabbling princes Primus and Septimus are just the tip of the fratricidal iceberg in this one, with five dead — but not gone — brothers in between, played as sarcastic spirits by Rupert Everett, Mark Heap, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Adam Buxton and David Walliams.

Dealing with a screw-up of a brother must be difficult enough, but leaving your wife and kids to live with him, getting shot down and tortured in a foreign prison and having to come back while dealing with serious PTSD?

Wahlberg was just as frustrated for years with this movie, having shepherded his passion project through financial struggles and multiple directors he wanted Scorsese, and had Darren Aronofsky attached for a while before Bale suggested David O. The Fitzgerald sisters are so alike! Unhealthily obsessed with death, a bit weird, fond of black. Then Ginger gets bitten by a werewolf and it all goes from Goth to gory. Brigitte is then in the tricky position of being stalked by a vicious beast that is also her beloved sister.

This does not make for comfortable conversation around the family dinner table. Coming of age agony. Romantic complications. It might sound like something out of the American Pie years, but this is John Hughes in his directorial debut at the beginning of a heck of a run. Ringwald cemented a working relationship with the director that later brought the world The Breakfast Club and albeit only Hughes-scripted Pretty In Pink.

All driven back into the maternal nest by various crises, they lick their wounds and find a renewed sense of family as they forgive their errant father for past misdemeanours and consider starting a relationship in the case of the adopted Margot and Richie, at least. The rivalry, ironically, is best given voice by clan outsider Eli Cash Owen Wilson , who always wanted to be one of the Tenenbaums and never quite managed it.

Having a family is hard enough when you only see them semi-regularly. But when your brother is attached to you at all times, your differing interests can really put a strain on the relationship. The other becomes President of the United States of America. There are only three tiny problems: his brother and two nephews. admin
