Critics Reviews

Review By Nur Safina Othman

Ahmad Idham's film "Adnan Sempit" takes on mat rempits in a film that combines action with comedy, unlike other similar themed movies such as "Remp-It" (2006) and "Bohsia: Jangan Pilih Jalan Hitam" (2009), which seems to give rise to negative perceptions of the mat rempit life. Although the film tries to change people's negative perception towards these bikers, the story is just too ordinary and dull, causing this film to be a bit of a bore.

It tells the story of two people from different worlds. Adnan (Shaheizy Sam) is a mat rempit who works as a dispatch boy at a private company and has feelings for his employer, Nadia (Intan Ladyana). Nadia who comes from a rich family, asks Adnan to pose as her boyfriend for an event. The relationship that goes smoothly in the beginning starts to rock when Nadia is angered by Adnan's embarrassing actions. Soon, Jofri (Zach X-Factor) comes into Nadia's life with his own ulterior motive.

Though in fact a serious person in real life, Shaheizy Sam is seen in a different light where his character is quite funny and the jokes inserted are spontaneous and not too bogus. Shaheizy nails his comedic character well, delivering a good performance! In contrast to Intan Ladyana, her acting was stiff which inevitably made her unsuitable for the role as Adnan's lady love. Credit should be given to Nurliana Samsudin, or better known as Reanna, who plays Nadia's secretary. Although she works in a corporate company, she is interested in becoming a minah rempit. Weird huh? In reality, minah rempits are commonly known as bohsia, which share the same meaning as slut. However, in the context of this movie, it is a little different. Even the chemistry between Reanna and Along Raja Lawak who plays Adnan's best friend is much better than Shaheizy and Intan.

The movie serves up some dangerous stunts, however is lessened to focus more on the love story between two leads. Interestingly, Idham dares to insert a scene where Adnan spies on a group of men who are with a woman showing off her 'assets'. It's too bad the audience were not able to see her 'assets' as it was pixelated.

Overall "Adnan Sempit" has its ups and downs, till at some point this reviewer feels that it's best that the film ended quickly.
