rare malaysian genre: realism

Our movie industry is so far behind because we never make a movie about us, about human. We just keep making the same fun popcorn movie every year until a lot of moviegoer have lost their hope in our cinema. We have a lot of story to tell about our people, our country, our culture, our history but we keep making normal movie. Its a waste, its a big waste. Suddenly, Namron come out with ONE TWO JAGA, a movie about our country's problem. Immigrant. Then, people dont like it, they said its too serious and everything, till it make Namron feel frustrated and he said that he just want to join the mainstream, keep making "normal" movie to make money, he dont care if he keep fooling people with lazy writing, cheap joke & everything. As long as people laugh and he got money out of it. Seriously, malaysia is lack of serious moviegoer. We just want to have fun, until we forget that film is not only a fun thing, its also an art.

Gritty and raw

I watched this movie last night and found it a surprisingly very honest portrayal of things that are not highlighted in Malaysia. Things that normally are quickly swept under the carpet like police corruption, illegal bodies disposal, fights where the authorities are not heroic and lose and daily money issues that compromise the work done by law enforcers as they eke out their living. This movie does not go too far in it's realism with annoying and highly obvious bleeping of some dialogue and blurring of certain visuals showing the heavy hand of the official censorship board marring the quality throughout. Aside from the off line censoring it was also clear that the bad cops were not allowed to don their official uniforms and the audience only saw cops in uniform at the very end when the good guys went into action nabbing their corrupt colleagues. The action was good and the storyline kept my rapt attention throughout without a moment of checking the time. A very positive sign of better things to come and certainly worth the admission price.
