Filem itu dicadangkan agar menukar tajuk kepada “Queen of Tacky”. Kena tahan telinga la sikit dengar komen dari penonton. Semoga komen dan kritikan dapat meningkatkan lagi mutu filem kita yang masih tidak berganjak dari tapuk lama.
Tidak tahu lah bagaimana nasib filem lakonan Ning Baizura ini kerana filem ini juga terpaksa bersaing dengan kemunculan robot-robot Transformers yang kian mengganas di pawagam kini.
Sudah menonton Transformers? Berapa bintang kalian bagi? Saya dah tonton filem arahan dan cerita Michael Bay dan Steven Spielberg ini dan saya beri 10 out of 5, bley?
Every character’s motivation is oversimplified (at times inexplicable) and every plot development is so text-book, that with one tiny cough from Kartika so early in the film, we know how this character is going to end up (at least find a less overused disease, please).
Perhaps the film’s title not only refers to the central character, but to the film’s personality as well. Every scene is overblown, and to say that every performance is over-the-top would be an understatement. There is no explanation in sight about the use of Indonesian actors (except maybe as a marketing ploy to attract both markets, and to give a pathetic last chance to Indonesian sinetron has-beens), especially since it’s never clear what nationality they are playing. It seems that they are supposed to be Malaysians, but none bothers even to attempt to cough up a Malaysian accent.
Oh, and nice try, Donny Kusuma, who starts out with a (badly done) Malaysian accent, but suddenly forgets all about it in subsequent scenes. Really, Queen of Tacky would have been a more appropriate title for this film. Zero stars (out of *****)
