For your information MANTERA stands for Man Transformable Exo-Robotic Armour. *silence for 10 minutes*
YES. It’s a bit Errr the name but well the trailer looks promising!! At least the pictures i found online on the movie makes me want to watch it, and though the name is a bit Errr, i guess Cicakman still tops the list of one of the most stupid local superhero movie name.
So yeah, if you look at the poster above, you’ll probably think that this is a local production which is TRANSFORMER-like? Woot! No it’s not.
It’s more like Kamen Rider/Baja Hitam/蒙面超人 and the movie talks about an organization on an evil plan with some high-tech robotic machine involving some kick-ass nano-tech. Definitely, sound more interesting than Cicakman to me anywhere anytime any day!!
The main character in this movie got a bike that could transform into a robotic armor equipping the person to have superhuman powers. Lots of CGI involved. Read no more!
Watch the trailer below!!
*I read somewhere that some of the scenes were shot with Canon EOS 7D!
Then here comes another movie with the name – The Malay Chronicles : Bloodline or better known as Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa!! A KRU Studios production. This movie talks about something totally different than the movie above.
Featuring a history background back in the olden days during the days of Malay Rulers with heroes & warriors along with economical relationship with countries around the region.
You could probably relate it to some ancient Kung Fu film with a hero going against the evil force saving the people and well of course, there’s this girl who’s the love of his life. That kind of story. 300 was one of the film that came to mind when i watched the trailer of Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa.
Quite a lot of detailed shots with CGI effects added, the production cost seems to be a lot and from the trailer itself, the movie looks very very promising and i’m looking forward to this very movie that is scheduled to be out in March this year 2011.
Just. Watch the trailer below!
It is definitely an exciting year for Malaysia if you ask me. Good movies are coming up, good and quality ones!!
Not those lame stupid movies that can only cheat the local audience with production team/company/group that is ONLY satisfied with just the local box office earnings.
Looking at both the trailers above, it seems that there are movie makers in Malaysia who are really getting more serious into producing films that could make it big going beyond the shores of Malaysia.
I really hope that both movies won’t disappoint me when it is out. Won’t expect them to be as good as Transformer nor 300 but at least be at a certain standard that is. Will definitely catch them both in the cinemas when it’s out in 2011 this year!!
