New action-packed movies to blast the screens soon
While local action movies have been reduced to automobile antics, straight up action flicks have never really been at the forefront of Malaysian cinema, simply due to the financial constraints in affecting the magnitude of blowing everything up around to smithereens for kicks.
Twenty-nine-year old actor-turned-director Farid Kamil Zahari, however, is so sure that the genre has its following, that he will showcase his ability to best utilise what available resources there are to make the action genre a staple.
Met at a doa selamat event for his latest venture, an action-comedy offering in Pertiga that has already begun shooting around Penang, Farid was keen to talk about his upcoming projects.
After the success of his directorial debut in V3: Samseng Jalanan which grossed RM3.88 million – no mean feat by any standards – Farid is raring to introduce the genre he wants to champion to local movie-goers.
