Review: Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa

Actually we have watched since last week...but lupe la plakkan nk review psl citer ni.

Hmm, by the way it's a very good story produced by KRU. At first when you watch, you won't expect that would be a Malay movie. It's something different from current Malay movies. Language not only Malay but mix la English, Chinese. And pelakon2 dorg pon campur2 kire ada Rom, Chinese, Malay, etc.

Basically, the storyline pun follow the history la kan. But I'm not really sure on Merong's history though. Dalam website KRU ni ada la synopsis about this movie:

Based loosely on the 16th century historical document entitled ‘The Malay Annals’, ’The Chronicles of Merong Mahawangsa’ is an action-packed epic feature film, with mythical characters, magical moments and dazzling visual-effects sequences. Merong Mahawangsa was a descendant of Alexander the Great, a renowned naval captain and traveler who came to Asia several hundred years ago.

The year is 120 AD… a time when the Roman Empire is at the height of its power, during the reign of Hadrian – one of the Five Good Emperors. Meanwhile in China, the Han Dynasty is firmly cemented as the ruling empire and is expanding into Central Asia… one hundred years before the period of the Three Kingdoms. As the Roman fleet did their repairs and traded in Goa, they asked Merong Mahawangsa to escort a Roman prince to Southeast Asia, to wed a beautiful Chinese princess from the Han Dynasty. The Chinese princess and the Roman prince are supposed to meet halfway and be married on neutral grounds.

However, the pirate nation of Geruda had other plans. They decided to kidnap the Chinese princess and use her as ransom. En route to the Straits of Melaka, Merong Mahawangsa’s fleet was attacked by Geruda’s forces while stopping at a small island to replenish supplies.

Will Merong Mahawangsa be able to rescue the Princess and re-unite her with her betrothed in a marriage that is set to bring together two great civilizations from the East and West ?

I would suggest you all pegi la tengok the movie. Worth it ok! Plus support la jugak industri kite ni. Ok! Rating i bagi 8/10. Lagi 2 tu xsuke part cermin tu la...merapu and ada la nampak fake sikit. Satu dok sebelah i MasyaAllah.....bau nye....xtahan lerr....xleh nk enjoy sgt tgk cite ni sbb bau yg tidak menyenangkan.
