Roger Moore Movie Nation The script’s twists are too obvious to even bother guessing. And that slow start can be discouraging, if you’ve just dropped in on this title at random. Rated: 1.5/4 Jun 28, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Irfan S This review may contain spoilers. The best local adaption of "Fight Club" (1999) by David Fincher. Adrian Teh has once again proved that he is one of Malaysia's important filmmaker in this era. Even though we could find clues about Iedil's (Zafik) split personality in the first act, the director manages to resolve it with a splendid twist towards the end. It is very rare for Malaysian filmmakers to blend action drama with psychological thriller. He did very well to execute his masterpiece in the form of western neo-noir with local wisdom. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
