After awesome reviews for the movie in the US (The Departed) and a stellar cast, I was dying to see a good guy movie with lots of trash talking, attitude, violence and maybe some sex hahahaha well not in Malaysia!

Ok lah, I went to TGV KLCC planning to watch “The Covenant” but the guy at the booth said he had 2 more tickets (uncollected) for the Departed. Of couse I took em lah.

How was the movie! A definite must watch but you can read more about the movie on the www. What I wanna bi*ch about is the Malaysian censorship and why the hell the movie got a (U) rating here??!?! It got R (similar to 18+) rating in the US! FYI, MPAA Rating (R): strong brutal violence, pervasive language, some strong sexual content and drug material.

And it should be rated R/18+! Just like any mature mob flick there’s loads of violence and profanity! Without it it wouldn’t be a joke….. when I was watching there are cuts & edits every minute just coz the guys were cursing and trash talking…..its so so so so so fu**ing annoying lah seriously. The movie has so much violence that there’s no way it should be rated (U).

Come on lah Malaysian censorship board…..if that movie doesn’t deserve a good 18 rating, I don’t know what does lah. By editing every lil F word (there must’ve been 50-100 in the movie) you took away all the fun and now I have to buy the pirate DVD once its out but hey don’t blame me…blame the people who couldn’t give the movie a proper rating! I’m sure 18+ yrs olds can deal with a “lil” foul language, trash talking and murder kan kan kan?

If you wanna watch the movie wait for a decent DVD. Don’t go to the movies as it’ll take away all the fun! Trust me!

    I’m sorry to hear that the Malaysian government has so much trouble understanding what makes a great movie … I hope you were still able to get enough enjoyment out of what was, for me, probably the best movie I’ve seen this year

    I’m really looking forward to see this movie this weekend. Unlike the Malaysian Censorship Board version you’ve seen, I’m going to see the OZ Censorship Board version instead (just trying to make you jealous here…). I hope there will be free flowing F words, the ocassional sex scene, killing spree etc. etc. I want to see it all in big screen! Heh heh heh…Anyway, Malaysian Censorship should rate film accordingly. I’ve seen one too many film that have been misrated (is this even a word…).

    Oh, but Malaysia bans a LOT of movies.And sometimes, censorship is taken WAY overboard, be it for political reasons or supposed morality ones.
