This movie is amazing!!!
21 October 2015 | by josephvprincipeSee all my reviews

I'm proud to say that I was apart of the lucky group of people who got to see this splendid movie at its premiere and boy was it amazing.

This movie blew my socks off, literally. After the movie finished I had to search the entire cinema just to find them because they just flew right off my feet.

The story is an inspirational tale of young Asian teenager (YouTuber, John Luc AKA MyChonny) trying to find true calling in life after he's caught cheating on his medical exam. He eventually finds it learning how to scam people from master swindler (Timothy Spall aka the rat in Harry Potter) and his sometimes hot daughter (Lily Sullivan, great actress).

This is one of the few Australian movies that make Aussie cinema proud! (Unlike 'Australia'.. what on Earth happened there?)

It's YouTuber MyChonny's first official acting role and you can tell he was at ease from all of his years of experience acting as Asian mum, Asian dad, Asian boy, Asian girl and the list goes on.

In conclusion the movie is a interesting, well thought out story by Lawrence Leung and Ben Chessell did an amazing job directing it, his cinematography skills are truly something special.

I highly recommend this movie!

P.S. Did anyone notice how buff Chonny looked? WHAT A BOD!!
