[More Spoilers] Ip Man (Noah Yap Rong Yew) on the other hand portrays a very weak boy. He loses his girl friend and instead of letting go being a man, he just able to cry. The funny part is Lobang King decided to make a video to challenge Ip Man’s Girlfriend new boyfriend. It proceeds to another shit bombing planned by Lobang King. This is the part where you can see how Jack Neo had incorporated the military elements in real life.

[Major Spoiler! U’ve been warned] The ending of the movie is very touching… All the “ah boys” had completed the National Service and the most memorable part was Ken’s father can finally walk again.

In this story there were many aspects in life that we should learn. At the same time Jack Neo incorporate some really funny scene to give a more relaxed mood.

So head on down to the nearest cinema to catch Ah Boys to Men 2!

The next day we were treated for a Laser Tag session with the entire main cast and a short interview session.

Following are some of the Q & A on that night:

Is it Fun in acting your character?

Sergeant Platoon (Tosh Zhang): Yes, I feel very enjoying as I don’t need to wear helmet and carry heavy equipment. I literally just need to tekan (make their life harder) the boys.

Lobang King: I love being tekan so I still enjoying my role.

Wayang King: It’s tough to be hated. I put a lot of effort to practise how to talk and move as a person who can irritates peoples.

Jack why didn’t you act in the movie?

Jack: I want to focus on directing.

When will the third part of Ah Boys to Men releasing?
Jack: Next Year

Is the National Service in the movie similar to the actual ones?

Sergeant Platoon: 90% similar, most of the scenes were taken at the military camp in Tekong Island. We had actually felt tiring as we are going through the entire course because in the making, we were NG thousand times.
