"KL Gangster", "KL Menjerit" and "Langgar".
The movie "Dampak" is the first film by director Lai Yuk in the action film genre, and the director was able to produce something that does not disappoint.
There are sure to be many wondering what exactly the word "Dampak" means. It means "impact" or "effect", and the director has used the theme of friendship, family and love in the film. The film also showed the effects of not making the right choice in life.
This film features A-list actors such as Aaron Aziz and Farid Kamil, as well as other solid actors consisting of Intan Ladyana, Cat Farish, Juliana Evans, Scha Al-Yahya and Michael Chin.
"Dampak" tells the story of five siblings on a mission to seek revenge on the enemy of their adoptive father, who is a former gangster who has a hidden past.
Featuring Aaron Aziz and Farid Kamil as the lead characters, there is no doubt in the quality of their acting coupled with their characters as gangsters and fighters, which is already synonymous with both these actors.
Perhaps the most impressive feature of this film is that the action scenes were all done without the aid of stunt actors, and this means that Intan Ladyana and Juliana Evans also did their own fight scenes. Credit should be given to both these beautiful actress as they were able to, with the help of beautiful cinematography, make the fight scenes look real.
According to the director, he had focused more on the action scenes while applying a graphic novel effect for a more artistic look. The result was indeed spectacular.
As a whole, "Dampak", produced by Ape Haus and Ops Pictures Sdn Bhd, is an action film for everyone. Not only is it packed with action but it has a few touching life lessons to pass on to everyone. Cinema Online, 13 September 2013
