More fights, more bonding in Ah Boys To Men Part 2


Expect to see a lot more interaction between the young recruits in Part 2 of Ah Boys To Men, Jack Neo's filmic ode to national service.

At a press conference yesterday at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, the director, 52, said: "We've got a lot of feedback from fans who say that there were not enough scenes of the boys during their army training.

"Well, in Part 2, the whole film will actually be about the boys as they bond, go through misunderstandings, fight with one another, and then finally resolve to become a united team. The drama aspect between the boys will be a lot more meaty."

Neo screened the movie trailer during the press conference, which showed the recruits arguing over girls, getting into fistfights and also on road marches. The trailer is not available online yet, but will be up "very soon", he says.
