Movie did poorly on the back of bit-part jobs from two co-directors (C.K Karan and Jamal Maarif) and an unmarketably dark poster which apparently scared kids. Lack of banana peel humour didn't find fans among Duyung masses either.
Watch out for:
The two-pronged talents of a radiant, naughty housewife played by Zila Bakarin, who got married recently after years of TV mediocrity. Still on the subject of two-pronged talents, there are also the ridiculously uncomfortable wardrobe and delivery lines from Liverpool-born Sharifah Sofea. These busty women were infinitely more interestin that the titular character.
When I met my former Taekwondo instructor as a child, who happened to have turned movie director. I ain't seen Master Karan for almost 20 years and here he is givin press interviews. What an unexpected turn.
My hands were clenched in fists of rage:
When it transpired I'm apparently the only writer in Malaysia who liked it. Most local journos rated it the worst Malaysian movie of 2007. Harsh!
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?
★★★★ on the basis of the number of prongs in this movie.
Trailer for the curious:
Orang Minyak attack.
