Presents the chaotic lives of these boys, living in the shadows of a sprawling metropolis and with only each other to rely on. Written by
i'm also a 15 year old. i am not scared of blood or violence, and i even like to watch horror movies. so i was interested in this film as it seemed quite funny (at first). but then it became boring (no plot), and the characters seem unreal. It was very vulgar, to the point where you don't find it funny anymore. you also don't know why exactly they are like that--many people go to ITE too, but they don't join gangs. they don't do STUPID things like fight, have sex with a dummy, take drugs, pierce, get tattoos, cut themselves, commit suicide. even if they die, they would choose to let the whole nation mourn for them by becoming some famous great person, not die on a famous building. i can't believe the actors are actually not acting. who would do such things on CAMERA? Roystan tan is really sick (psycho sick), and i have no intention to watch any more of his films. keep in mind that this is not a fair nor typical representation of Singapore's youth, who are typically a studious, polite lot. And gang fights or gangsters parading around are not common. & what's the deal with all the hokkien? do you really think all the people understand this? use your brain, roystan. you're making a film for everyone and you add all this vulgar stuff and hokkien to show off your artiness. PS: the boys don't look like 15, now do they? you're not even realistic, roystan!
