Syafiq Yusof denies smearing police force's good name with "Sheriff: Narko Integriti"


"Sheriff: Narko Integriti" is the No. 1 film in 2024

29 Apr - Syafiq Yusof is dismissing the notion that he is besmirching police integrity in his new movie, "Sheriff: Narko Integriti", which revolves around corruption.

The filmmaker, who spoke about the movie recently, stated that he and his father Datuk Yusof Haslam have made tons of movies and series about good policing that many began to question its validity.


"After filming movies like KL Special Force and Polis Evo 3, I don't know what else to do. So, I decided to come up with a heavy issue and to show the dark side of the police in 'Sheriff'," he said.

However, Syafiq stressed that he is not trying to show the police in a negative light. Instead, the movie is about both good cops and bad cops.

"I had tried to make movies about corruption in the force in the past, but had to revise the script. But times have changed and Bukit Aman is also becoming more open. Even some of the panels of the Censorship Board who evaluated the movie were former high-ranking police officers," he said.

To date, "Sheriff: Narko Integriti" has now made RM35.3 million since its release on 18 April.
