PREDATORS - nice cast but UNCENSORED?

Last night I went to see PREDATORS at Queensbay Mall, Penang (GSC Cinema). Weirdest thing... I felt like I was brought back to 1991 @ the 'tender' age of 14... watching Terminator-II Judgement Day (at the cinema)  and hearing Linda Hamilton swearing her head off using the so (in)famous F-word. Last night, surprisingly... the movie was NOT CENSORED! I don't mean censoring of the 'skin'... but of the language. Sama macam masa tengok Terminator-II!!! At first, when the first F-word came out, I thought the censorship guy/gal was a bit late pressing the silence button... after all, it was a bit inaudible. But when the second, third, fourth and fifth F-words and F-word-inspired-words started to fly around, it started to make me wonder... "Is there a new policy for 18-SG movies? Where in order to maintain it's 18-SG-ness... no censorship is done about the profane language?" ... Or is it just in Penang? Ntoh le. 

There was also one part of the movie that I thought would normally warrant censorship. One of the characters was playing around and showing off a tattoo on his stomach (or was it his chest?). It was of a topless gal he so much revered - who in the end, according to him, was his sister (this character is a sick convict destined for death row btw.). Since the illustration of the breasts were quite vivid... I thought it also deserved to be censored. I mean, even Kat Von D's LA-Ink and  Miami Ink gets censored for such things, right?

Aaanyawyz... that was the story last night about censorship... or lack of it is more like it :) The movie? It was entertaining. There was a bit of a twist to the plot, though... but I don't think it made much of a difference for the overall flow of the film. The cast? Wallaweh... quite star studded jugak. Siap ada Lawrence Fishburn (The Matrix - tapi belakon kejap je...), Adrien Brody (The Pianist), Topher Grace (Spiderman 3, That 70's Show) and also Alice Braga (I am Legend)... and also mamat chicanos yang selalu jadik pelakon pembantu tu... Danny Trejo kot kalau tak silap (Anaconda). Overall, I think the movie was OK la... I give a 6.5/10 for Predators :D Ok tak score tu rasa2nya.... Oraits.... Assalaam aleykom.

pelik msia nih... kalo time ketat tu, ketat sgt, time loose plak, loose sgt. satu lg aku perasan kan, kalo filem melayu mesti tapis habis2an. kalo import mari, mcm x sgt. tu yg mcm patah smgt penerbit/pengarah baru yg berbakat (i read their ramblings somewhere not long ago)... my 2 cents, peace!
