This movie has received many praises from friends and family members alike, but honestly i disliked it to the point my spine shivered. This movie tells the story of the life of gang members in Kuala Lumpur, but honestly, i imagined the Malay mob to be more interesting than plain punching and shooting. The life issues and drama of this movie are however not as terrible as its boring depiction of Malay and Chinese mafia, issues of family love, brotherhood and honour are brought up better than the average Malay movie. Still, a movie that receives as much attention and fame as this movie in Malaysia should have a better story and direction. I want to see the kind of mob in The Godfather, the kind where you can see clearly that they control an area and its men, the kind where tactics and brains beat out pure blood-lust and brawn. I simply wish that Malay gangster movies would stop going for the Crows Zero style and start with The Godfather kind of style, where charisma and style plays its role. The style of the characters Shark and Jai are pure examples of a cocky pussy with a gun and clenched fists. How about kill them off and replace them with Kaiser Sose from The Usual Suspects, Vito Corleone from The Godfather and Vince Vega from Pulp Fiction. Those characters should be the depiction of gangsters, not just good with a gun, but smart too. Right now all malay movie gangsters are dumb and would undoubtedly be the minions in any given western gangster movie. Not Cool.
