love and hate
i love and hate this movie. I mean, this movie talk about Indonesia (my country). I left the movie theater a little underwhelmed. the plot and storyboard is decent. The point is, this film has so many points, that ironically, it has no point at all. sometimes the story was just off and this movie try too hard to be funny. i don't know what's wrong w/ me but some jokes so lame. some scenes exceeding comedy awkwardness level. Nothing is perfect, I mean I get it this movie is Indonesia's product. so yeah this is my love and hate opinion about this movie. Good luck w/ your next project.
PS : I liked it, but didn't love it as much as i love other animation movie
