The answer is no. I'm impressed that it's back with a twist of the story line. Their life was rewinded back before Ah Boys To Men 1, instead of going to Tekong for National Service (NS), they were chosen to go Sembawang for Naval Diving Unit (NDU).
NDU is a special task force that requires special skills and the training is more challenging than the rest. The Navy required all the young actors to achieve a certain standards of physical fitness, because they were portraying a group of well-trained elites. All actors were given a 3-month intensive training to ensure they are fit enough to endure the requirements needed for the filming. So brace yourself, girls! Expecting to see some good bodies in this episode!

This movie will be screening in Malaysia on the 19th March 2015. The original cast from the previous Ah Boys To Men include Wang Wei Liang, Tosh Zhang, Joshua Tan, Bunz, Jaspers, Maxi Lim and Charlie.
|Fan girls, I allow you to scream now.|
Lobang King (Wang Wei Liang), out of my expectation, was my favourite boy (and man) in this episode. Just like the previous episodes, his Hokkien, jokes and expressions never fail to make me LOL. Instead of being rebellious, this time he pulled out a roll as a loving brother of her sister, Lo Wei (Joey Leong), which makes me feel that it's good to have an elder brother.
Aloysius Jin (Maxi Lim) remained as the Wayang King in this episode. He could not run away from characters of such due to his 'baby face' (as mentioned by Wei Liang in his instagram, LOL). However in this episode, he showed some of his skills which he has been learning all the while in real life to impress the audience, and I was really impressed and shocked!
|Ohhhh look at him!! So cute <3|
It's kinda touching to see how all the actors worked so hard for this movie. Fitting up their body, experiencing the real life of Navy such as training with the tayars, boats and other equipment, and get splashed by real large forces of water in the face!
I personally felt that the story line is not as interesting as the previous one (or do they even have a story line in it?). I was so looking forward for scenes that has impressive twists and turns instead of typical friends and family's problems. But just like typical Jack Neo's film, you can expect for laughter and definitely deep feelings, and the most importantly, meaningful quotes. Well there are some scenes and quotes did touched my heart but I guess I'll let you to discover them yourself.
