Movie Review 1: Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa

As expected, they never failed to impress me. They always come out with something sooo different from others and as the result, they have the special place in my heart, since I was still a small kid.

Who they are?

The awesome KRU brothers of course.

I have never written a Movie review, nor a book review before but after watching the so called 'filem terulung di Malaysia': HMM, my fingers were itchy enough to dance on the keyboard, writing something about the movie.

It started off with a 'jantan' voice, telling us a history about the first ruler of a place in Tanah Melayu. And the story evolves around what happened before, when and after the person called 'Merong Mahawangsa' was appointed to be the first ruler.

I never took my eyes off the screen during the movie. The sound system was great. The pictures were great. The storyline? There might be an issue about the transition but it was great enough for a 2-hour movie when a normal epic movie would take up to 3 hours.

Personally, I think this is a great start. Yusry Abdul Halim had successfully nailed the magnificent first step for Malaysians Directors and script writers to start with a genre that is not so typical malay movie type and soooo cintan cintun. The script was great. The actors and actresses were great. The cinematography was great. The whole story was great! Two thumbs up for Yusry.

It is simply a Malay Movie that is worth watching. Yusry had definitely did a thorough research on the history, and the script came out to be great. The CGI? Let's not talk about that. I believe everyone had witnessed Yusry's ability in the area from his previous movies: Cicakman and Cicakman 2.

The moral values of friendship, brotherhood, loyalty and love were there. Not forgetting how awful human can be when he is controlled by power. And how a tragedy could change human's perception and behavior.

All I could say is: Yusry, 4.5 out of 5 stars for you!
