Time to watch history channel again, 22 March 2012
Author: sweed79 from Borneo

I tried to watch this movie to see if it is worth the positive coverage that the Malaysian media have given during its preview. But to my disappointment I left the cinema in the middle of the showing. The acting, the props, the CGI was not to the standard where we can say that it is an epic story. At the beginning of the story, I was so annoyed at the narration. The narrator tried so hard trying not to choke on his on voice to make that 'old man' sound. And eventually the storyline become dull and tasteless. At one scene during the battle, there was a fierce storm and the fight scene was intense, but I was surprised to see that the coconut trees at the background were not even moving. If the Malay warriors were still alive they will certainly not approve the efforts the film makers trying to portray about their lives. But again, what can I expect from the KRU productions.
