There will bound to be plenty of questions regarding the movie so I made this post to answer them.

1. Where do you get your guns? Are they airsoft?
Believe it or not, the entire film is nearly devoid of airsoft guns. With the exception of the MP5 submachinegun used by one of the terrorist and the G36C assault rifle used by one of the operator (both are downscaled versions and sold openly in Animetech), all the weapons used in the film are nothing more than toyguns. The M4 Carbines featured extensively in the film are noise-making laserguns bought from Toys City and are 1/1 scale. Airsoft/paintball accessories like scopes and vertigrips could fit to the rifle’s 20mm rails. I was surprised that no one even bothered to notice this as many were quickly turned off by the childish appearance of the toyguns. Tell you what, a can of flat black spraypaint makes even the silliest of toys look vicious. As for the handguns, they’re mere dartguns found in just about any toystores or toy sections in Giant and Carrefour. If the dartguns look like they fit your hand means the scale is good.

2. The action of the SWAT teams are dumb/unrealistic/stupid
Indeed it’s dumb, unrealistic, and stupid as much as you! There was never any intention of making this film realistic in the first place. Everyone who volunteered to do this (myself included) never had any military experience. We participate in this film for the heck of it, and because we have the money to afford all that expensive mall ninja gears! You jelly poorfags? Also if we go too fast with the action, you can’t catch what’s going on and it’ll end up like a Michael Bay clusterfuck. The director insist we go slow for the sake of the audience, so stop bitching on that part.

3. Why isn’t anyone reloading? They have infinite ammo or something?
Blame the fact that we’re using toyguns (refer back to the 1st question). The magazine is molded into the plastic toyguns and are unremovable thus making the act of reloading all but impossible.

4. The special effects suck/muzzle flashes look fake
The producer/director isn’t backed by Hollywood’s immeasurable blank cheque. This film is done purely out of effort and passion so don’t expect anything fancier past that. Geez Malaysians, must you compare everything that a Malaysian had done against something that’s just too colossal to rival against?

5. The acting sucks
Refer back to the 2nd question. We’re unpaid volunteers with no formal training in acting and play. Sorry that we’re not as good as afternoon drama actors or Justin Bieber.

6. The chick hostage is ugly
Indeed, and that reminded me why I sympathize with you after hearing the story about your butt-ugly mum getting gangbanged by a group of Nigerians who later fathered you. Seriously, you’re making a fuss about that? As if your fugly wallet-sucking, I-can’t-make-sandwiches-in-the-kitchen girlfriend fared any better.

7. I can make a better movie than this!
Dan Khoo and Brian Lee sweat their ass off making this while you’re blowing hot air unproductively. Why don’t YOU take the challenge of directing your own movie and see for yourself how easy it is?

8. OK, FINE! But as a Malaysian, I still want to find someone to blame and criticize!
BLAME DAN KHOO AND BRIAN LEE! THEY DID IT! IT’S THEIR FAULT!
