Before watching this movie, I thought it will be very bored but in the end it was interesting. I kept wondering why they were not speaking in Malay since the story based on history of Kedah Tua .Applause should be given to KRU because they had produced good graphic using CGI and sound effects in the movie. All the fighting scenes seem very real. To all Malaysian, we should be proud with Malaysian product.
