狮神决战 The Lion Men Gala Premiere @ Genting Highland & Personal Review

狮神决战 The Lion Men Gala Premiere @ Genting Highland 云顶高原
On 19th February, I was one of the blogger invited to attend the Gala Premiere of <<狮神决战 The Lion Men>> at Genting Highland. Since I want to take a break from the smoky and hazy KL, me and a few media friends went uphill together.

Director Jack Neo 梁智强 together with the actors and actress were there for the gala premiere. Actors including Chen Tianwen 陈天文、Tosh Zhang 张智扬、Wang Wei Liang 王伟良、Noah Yap 叶荣耀、Maxi Lim 林俊良、Charlie Goh 吴清樑、Eva Cheng 程砚秋及 Bao Er Cong 包尔琮. There was a pre-cocktail session at Genting Club room before the premiere. I saw VIPs and invited guest were there enjoying their private moments.

After a dinner session, the cast and invited celebrities walked on the red carpet. Below are photos taken during the red carpet session, let see if you recognize all of them:

We then head to the Genting International Room for the Gala Premiere. Director Jack Neo and actors shared their story during the shooting of the movie and why the movie has two parts. I am more familiar with the casts from "Ah Boys to Men" but glad to see new talents discovered by director Jack Neo. For example Bao Er Cong has talent in music and dancing. While Charlie is good in playing drums *if I remember it right*

Rating on The Lion Men 狮神决战 
I personally think that the story about The Lion Men can be perfectly portray in a 2 hours film IF it is not separated into two parts. I love it when I saw the nicely done CGI Lion appeared within the story. I like the funny jokes especially Noah Yap who is a nature-born comedian. However, it get a bit draggy when all kinds of heroic CGI came out (eg. 失败的men) just to give a reason for the lion men to wear a mask and be replaced by the real heroes who did the perfect lion dance move. There are even certain scene where we can see that the action were not that synchronized, you saw a big size man doing the lion dance and then suddenly the cast's face appeared instead. This action movie is definitely a hard one to produce ha?

At the end of the Part 1 movie, there was a sneak peek and it seems that there will be more drama awaiting you in The Lion Men Part 2. How I wish I can watch the whole story at once instead of need to wait for another few months to know the ending. It was great to see new elements like hip hop dancing and new arts incorporated into lion dance. If not because of familiar cast from Ah Boys to Men and the beautiful actress Eva Cheng, I think Jack Neo's production may not be that attractive already. All in all, I still hope that The Lion Men story can be told with just a maximum 2 hours movie, not Part 1 and Part 2 separated story.

As a fans of Director Jack Neo's movie, I like his previous movies and I really hope that The Lion Men part 2 can do better than this. You may watch the movie because I personally find that the acting by certain actors are actually quite natural, especially Tosh Rock, Wei Liang and Noah Yap. It just feels like they are being themselves and I guess that's what capture people's heart. If that doesn't convince you enough, Eva Cheng is a really good looking girl that you shouldn't miss. Let see if Part 2 will give The Lion Men a good story as whole =)
