I should start making a list of Malay movies to watch If You Want To Start Watching Malay Movies. Paskal would be one of my recommendations.
Its an RM10 million budget movie used wisely. As viewers, we get to learn a thing or two about our elite military team. It is patriotic and I can see a future where this will be a staple movie programme on National TV every 31st August.
The plot was simple. And almost predictable. But it’s Okay coz just how many Malaysian movies can get you to the edge of your seat? Less than 10 aite.. unless you’re a big fan of MIG productions. Which I am not.
Paskal was nostalgic for me as well as it brought on memories of PKBM (L) in secondary school. I can still remember bits of the Gempur Wira song. The pic below is a page from my HoboMinci. Paskal deserved a mention in it.
A TEAM IS ONLY AS STRONG AS ITS WEAKEST LINK
To be elite team, the members must be elite as a person too. And can work as a team. I think everyone should walk out of the movie knowing that.
