A decent film
1 October 2010 | by muhd-hilmiSee all my reviews

This was the first and still the best epic war film ever produced in Malaysia by a Malaysian director and Malaysians actors&actress. this film is a success at that time and until now. the story, cinematography, acting and plot were overall good. Hairie Othman was delivering a fabulous acting throughout the film. until now, there is no other history/epic war that can beat "Leftenan Adnan". maybe the Malaysian directors nowadays no longer interested in producing such films.(as the youngsters are now more to western movies and lost interest in historical genre). Aziz M. Osman had done a great job of directing this great film. A big applause to all the crews that took part in making this great film a reality.
