Painful to sit through this...
31 August 2008 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I had the chance to witness the world premiere of 12 Lotus a couple of weeks back.

I have followed Royston Tan's career throughout and was looking forward to his newest movie. To cut it short; it was painful to sit through.

Poorest acting, weak plot, annoying cinematography and cheesy music. It is basically a movie of the standard of "Money not enough" which tries to be arty. As another reviewer wrote, another lowdown of the Singapore movie industry.

I am sorry Royston, but this was the worse ever you've produced. Please try to get back to your roots!
