Synopsis:

Set against the background of Petaling Street in 1908, Petaling Street Warriors tells the story of a pair of married couple, Shi Duyao (Mark Lee) and Zhung Lichun (Yeo Yann Yann), who operate a Hokkien mee stall in Petaling Street, where they suffer from the inefficiency of the colonial government and suppression by the Chinese gangsters. While trying to impress his wife, Duyao encounters a mysterious yet strikingly beautiful kungfu expert, Xiaoju (Chris Tong), who claims that Duyao is a descendant of the missing Emperor Jianwen of the Ming Dynasty. To stop a group of Qing warriors and Japanese ninjas from robbing a treasure map that Duyao doesn't even know he has, Lichun and her cousin, Liukun (Namewee), finally reveal their kungfu, turning Petaling Street into the ultimate battleground. Facing enemies of unthinkable powers, could Duyao unravel the mystery of his real identity and come to his wife's rescue just in time?

First Nasi Lemak - no tax relief because of prejudice. Now , Hokkien Mee maybe juicy enuf to get tax relief from Singapura.
Later this Namewee might be doing "Fatt Thew Cheong" or "Buddha jump over the wall" Famous tasty dish to get a personal glory and relief in Hong Kong to star with or against Stephen Chow Sing Chee.
Pelik tapi benar, we prefer Bangla or Indo without papers and get them to have thier illegal status legalised with millions spent with manpower and machine. The Gomen are not interested in getting our Pendatang dari China to showcase his ability to the world. No SME funding and even tax relief incentives :o

Namewee is the directs product of UMNO abused, openly corrupted so called affirmative action policy. After 42 years since 1969, the action led by UMNO does nothing to alleviate the poor rural Malay, instead, it serves to keep the bangsawan in power, loop holes for power abuse and the politicians getting filthy rich from exploitimg the system. The poor buggers remain ever poorer, continue to live on hand out, ever more desperate for more hand outs. the cycle continues....into eternity waiting for the Arab Spring happen here....

What la, AGAIN, I read the same old rhetoric ... same old repeat..... this is getting somewhat overused. This thread is a link to another movie.... WHY must someone bring in POLITICS ?!!!!

I take this as the final straw that broke the camel's back .... anyone pushing political agenda in a non-political discussion is going to get BANned. :mad:

uchangeng, please take a few days'off in the plantation

I really hope Malaysia 'boleh' attitude can turn into our entertainment industry to fight with the Korean.
Look at them...pretty girl, handsome and fit guy, nice dress, suit-like-james bond, beautiful getaway landscape, good story plot, tear-jerking romance. The world will pay to watch it. Even Korean tourism fly with it. They show the best they can to the world. They even try to film Iris like how '24' is. Reasonably good too. It will lead to higher-nation income.
And our Msian production still showing attap house, ah-pek wearing singlet, beautiful girl wear slipper and play with fighting fish. How to reach the world?

Yes, but even Korean film industry is suffering now. And nobody knows why. I guess there's a cycle for the business...? :confused:

Anyway, here's the latest full trailer of PSW.... https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=183338808412643

Thank you for being so supportive! I personally find it entertaining too and the story is well-formed, unlike many of previous movies (perhaps with the exception of Homecoming, which is really a good CNY movie) :)

If we look at the following list:

Top 5 Grossing Malaysian Movies
1. KL Gangster (RM11.74 million)
2. Hantu Bonceng (RM8.52 million)
3. Ngangkung (RM8.18 million)
4. Kongsi (RM8.09 million)
5. Khurafat (RM8.08 million)

The "success" of Ice Kacang Puppy Love (RM4 million something) and Great Day (RM6 million, not forgetting all the advertising and in-house cost incurred by Astro) are really nothing.

For the Malaysian Chinese film industry to grow, it needs to obtain a better share in the local box office. Without the support of Malay audience, it's almost impossible for Malaysian Chinese production enter the top five list.

What about overseas market? Can we export to Taiwan? The chance is slim, because even Taiwanese don't watch their own films, except for a few rare ones. (Ice Kacang Puppy Love, with so many well-known stars, flopped in Taiwan)

Can we export to Hong Kong? The film industry is Hong Kong has declared "dead" after many of its filmmakers went to China.

Can we export to China? Without stars they know, it's almost impossible to be imported into China. They don't even have enough screens for their very own movies. (Ice Kacang Puppy Love flopped in China too)

Can we export to Singapore (and earn Singaporean $$$)? Singapore's film market has slumped too for locally made movies. Many can't even recoup their investment.

So, where can we go? If Malay audience the answer, what can Malaysian Chinese filmmakers do to attract them to the cinemas?

With all the hype and all, Nasi Lemak 2.0 only managed to get RM4 million in its first two weeks while a recent Malay movies could get RM3million in just six days.

Of course, I'm not saying that we should support local production because it's made in Malaysia. It's actually bad for the industry....

Support a movie only because it's good!

Enough ranting. Time to work. :D

Whilst nearly everything in the pic looks of period time, that "Petaling Street" road sign looks so fake! Ain't sure but there seems to be a modern TNB electric cable pole behind the premise. I suppose attention to detail isn't quite there. :D
