Once Upon A Time

Is that time of the year again, where the cinema is flooded with crappy and no sense making movie that is in some way connected to the Chinese New Year theme. Once Upon A Time is no doubt once of it, and it will be release few days before CNY hopefully to get the high ticket sale. But is the movie worth you paying or even worth your time?
Thank to Kelly Chin I manage to score some invites where I could bring my friend along to watch the premiere screening in GSC 1Utama. The cast were mostly from Astro / MYFM and you'll probably be familiar with name like Jack Lim, Gan Mei Yan, Vivian Tok, Jeff Chin, Royce Tan, and etc. Like every time portal movie, it begin with a century where technology were not discover yet and unknowingly one or few of them from that century ventured into the new era.
I believe you could continue with the plot from there, that's how predictable the plot is to begin with. If that doesn't stop you from going all out to support local production blindly, there were some pretty lame action scene and not forgetting old school joke too.
Not every cast is equally bad in this movie, there were some that I felt was OK but still there were plenty room for improvement. This is judged based on after several movies they've acted in, the expectation is there but sadly it was not delivered. The plot is somehow very poor and weak. Is like there's not real purpose to the movie and the movie was made just because it was a resolution or something like that. The technology in this movie is 10-20 years back and it seriously drag down the overall quality to it.

Rate: 1/5
