Is "KL Gangster 3" Doomed?
Some of you may recall how impressed you were by the awesomeness presented in the trailer for franchise writer and director Syamsul Yusof‘s explosive, martial arts action-packed Fall gangster thriller, KL Gangster 2. Fanfare around the internet buzzed heavily around the film in the two years before the film’s theatrical release as moviegoers around the world who learned of the film’s existence hoped to learn more about further distribution of the film beyond its Malaysian borders.
The first film, KL Gangster, released in 2011, ultimately becoming a blockbuster success upon earning nearly $4 million from a $500K budget. And with the reported success of this year’s prequelized follow-up thusfar despite its budget being four times bigger than its predecessor, and the looming threat of piracy worldwide, a big question mark surrounds the prospects of a third film, and whether or not Yusof decides to helm it.
Despite the best efforts of Malek (Aaron Aziz), his younger brother, petty drug dealer Jai (Adi Putra), sinks deeper and deeper into the world of gangland activity and organised crime. When a series of tragedies befall their family, Malek has no choice but to join one of the gangs and plays a pivotal part in an all-out turf war instigated by violent rival gang leader Tailong (Rosyam Nor).

is KL Gangster 1 even good?
piracy is bad.
BUT it can be reduced if distributors do their job right!
people buy the movies on dvd/bluray and find out it's region locked, some features removed or some scenes missing. It's a rip off and very annoying.
why should people pay more money to import these movies on dvd/bluray?
if a movie cannot be acquired in someone's country, the easy and less stressful way is to pirate! Not my problem, they should blame distributors.
