Critic Reviews for Bunohan (Return To Murder)
The pace of these scenes can be trying -- and would be torture for viewers who came expecting a more conventional Asian crime film -- but it suits the movie's concern with family histories, rural isolation, and the inevitability of development.
Audience Reviews for Bunohan (Return To Murder)
A cold-blooded contract killer is on the prowl for the head of an up-and-coming kickboxer, who owns a piece of land that a schoolteacher greedily covets in his pursuit of money--All three of them being half-brothers. If that doesn't catch your attention, add in the quirks of a wayang kulit tok dalang father who's turning senile, a broken quasi-mystical family, the dark side of underground Muay Thai, a truly rustic-bordering-on-poverty-stricken Kelantanese setting, and spectacular cinematography in the swamps and coasts of Kelantan. I must admit, the film really deserves all those awards (I'm still amazed that they filmed in croc-infested waters!). This film is a statement that says there's still hope for the Malaysian film scene. Hats off to the director, producers, and actors. All the praises aside, there are parts of it which I still don't understand , though, particularly the mystical aspects.
