Feeling the "IMPAK MAKSIMA" in EVOLUSI KL DRIFT

To those who was HUGELY disappointed with CGI drift cars in IMPAK MAKSIMA, your about to be compensated! This latest production by Skop Productions will be the cure for that problem. I managed to attend the Grand Premiere which was held in Midvalley Megamall. It was a very grand affair indeed. The theater hall was FULL PACKED with not much seats left apart from the FRONT ROW!

Anyways, as the first scene of the movie started rolling i just can't stop recalling back to TWO FAST TWO FURIOUS. It was just similar in so many ways. Director Syamsul Yusof is OBVIOUSLY INSPIRED from that movie and among many other drift car movies such as Tokyo Drift and Initial D. But he definitely delivered in this debut film of his. He made sure that cars like the Skyline and RX7 were used in the film.




The stunts in this movie is just extremely incredible and absolutely a breakthrough in our current local film indusrty here in Malaysia. In my opinion he tore the streets of Kuala Lumpur with all of the car drifting scenes. The whole of Kuala Lumpur especially in Bukit Bintang was just simply filled with TYRE MARKS!!!


But to me that was all it had to offer. Story itself was just not much to offer. To me the whole film was just one big DRIFT SHOW from start to the end. The cast delivered well in their respective roles but there were a few characters which just seemed unnecessary. Syamsul's character seemed so WOODEN. Fasha on the other hand was her usual self with that VOICE trying to be that tough girl. Aaron delivered with his TOKAN character, very much stereotype to all others who have played that role. Iqram on the other hand seemed VERY HIGH! He must of been.
