GENG - Malaysia's First Animated Feature

Haaa... last weekend, pi tengok cerita GENG - Pengembaraan Bermula (Gang - The Journey Begins)...

This time, went with a bigger group:
  1. Myself
  2. Wife
  3. Farhanah
  4. Umi (younger sister in law)
  5. Mak (mum in law)
  6. Abah (dad in law)
As usual, did not put that high an expectation, even tho the buzz was quite wild for the movie. I just didn't want to ruin the experience, for myself :P

Anywayz, went in, sat down at the second last row (just in front of the maksiat prone couple seats :P). In all... I found the movie to be quite good :) I won't rate it together with Toy Story, Shrek or Monster's Inc., but for a first time effort by Malaysians (Les' Copaque)... it was quite an enjoyable feature presentation :D The 3D work also wasn't shabby. Great detail was put into designing the characters, as well as other 3D objects such as houses, trucks, as well as Sapi's (the cow's) bullock cart! :D But of course lah, not as detailed as Pixar's or even Dreamwork's... I mean, Pixar has their own 3D rendering engine (Renderman)... and these companies work in the tenth of millions! Whereas geng... only used like... 4 million?

Of course, in being the first... I did realize some noticable kekurangans :P Among them are:

1. Story line - The whole story is about a few kids, getting lost in a durian orchard, then being chased by 'monsters' into a cave, then facing all the horrific 'challenges' the cave had to offer. Simple... but at times, seemed a bit shallow. Maybe because I've been used to the surprisingly creative way of Dreamworks and Pixar (especially, with the amazing story telling talents of Lasseter). That's where Geng fell short a bit. For me, it lacked some emotional depth. Maybe some things can be done here in the future :)

2. Dragging - The time it took to establish the story was a bit long for my taste. Not to say TOO LONG... but agak long jugak la :P It was quite a while for the real theme to emerge (the journey...). The authors must have thought that establishing the background of the characters was of more importance. But even THAT was lacking a bit as the main characters were not treated with that much depth.

Anywayz... even tho having some drawbacks (my point of view that is)... overall it was enjoyable. Especially for the kids. I mean, my kid liked the movie quite a lot :D And, yeah, some times when I think of it, maybe since the target are kids... so, that emotional depth thinggy might not apply that much kot...

Rating? Well... For me... I'd give a 7.89/10 :D But if I were a kid, I think it would be 8.99/10! :D

Okes. Apa2 pon, if you haven't seen it yet, then go see la!!!
