Hantu Gangster (2012) Movie Review

Like any of NameWee movies, the overall moral is about unity.

There are 3 main gangs in Malaysia, the Malays, The Indians and the Chinese. As kids, the leaders of these gangs were best of friends and they had the idea of leading their own race of gangs to protect them but still respect one another and still are the best of friends.

As they grew older and had kids of their own, all of them were murdered making their kids the leader of their pack.
Along came Te Sai, a thief who steals for a living to care for his son who's actually a very bright student. During the funeral ceremony of the Malay gang, Te Sai stole a ring that belonged to the former Malay gang leader. That ring contains the ghosts of the 3 gang leaders and they appeared to Te Sai to seek his help to change back how the gangs were supposed to be and not just gangs that terrorize the local neighborhood. They also wanted Te Sai to stop the mastermind behind this who murdered them and used the Malay gang leader as a puppet in carrying out his scheme that is to take over all the gangs and gain fortune and power.

Te Sai, reluctant at 1st, then decided to help out the ghosts in return for 4D numbers. Will Te Sai able to carry out such an impossible task from a lowly person who keeps out of sight from people usually? Watch the movie to find out.

As usual, the grand plot of any NameWee's movie is about unity. But unlike the previous NameWee movie, Nasi Lemak 2.0, this one is much of a letdown to me. The lame jokes and silly antics weren't funny but is just what it is, lame and silly. In my books, this movie just isn't funny and it's just not worth the watch. I'm sorry, but I would rate this 2 stars out of 5.

It's lousy to me. Jokes are lame, not funny at all and it's just downright silly to watch.
