Ah Boys to Men 《新兵正传》 Part 2 Movie Review:
The story of the movie continues from Ah Boys to Men Part 1. In Part 2, it shows how life changes a personality from a BOY to a MAN mindset. It screens through the hard work training of army life and at the same time it also how the audiences how the army life looks like in this new generation of 2013.
Ah Boys to Men Part 2 movie is very touching and warm-hearted. I tear at the last part of the movie during the POP graduation ceremony scene. The movie is very meaningful and self-thought; Hence, I believe that most of the parent will know how army trains their son during the 2-4 month of BMT training. Overall, I rate this Ah Boys to Men Part 2 Movie: 4/5 star.
Last but not least, I would like to thanks Nanyang Polytechnic and JTeam Production for the great invitation to the Ah Boys to Men 2 Gala Premiere. *Smiles*
Ah Boys to Men 2 Movie Synopsis:

They feel that he is following after Wayang King’s footsteps, just trying to flatter the commanders so that he can stand out. Ken tries to explain but to no avail. Instead, their misunderstandings deepen as the training continues. At the same time, Ip Man’s girlfriend left him for another guy. Unable to contain his anger, Ip Man seeks help from Lobang & his Section mates to hatch a plan for revenge on his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.
The new boyfriend immediately informs his gang, and quickly locate Lobang and the Section mates at their usual place where they will have dinner before booking in. A fight broke out.
