In the outskirts and back-alleys of Kuala Lumpur, several individuals with money problems struggle to get their lives straight. An Indonesian worker whose sister is in trouble, a Filipino fixer with his hands in the till and a corrupt cop with a neurotic new partner find their paths unexpectedly intersecting - with fatal results.
The good cop/bad cop theme is the most overused theme in Hollywood in the past but it is kind of refreshing to see it in Malaysian film. If you had already saw Training Day played by Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke then this movie has some similar plot in it.
In respond to realism depiction of the story, I don't think you should treat this movie as a medium to promote stereotype towards the authority. Just enjoy it like any other films and learn something good from it.
From technical point of view, one obvious weakness of the movie is bad color grading which is in my opinion too much green. But overall I was impressed by solid performance of the actors. If you are Malaysian, do yourself a favor and go see this movie.
