    Synopsis


    Merantau
    Welsh director Gareth Evans delves into the world of Indonesian martial arts with his adrenaline-fueled action film Merantau. The title refers to a centuries-old Sumatran custom wherein adolescent males must leave their rural villages and prove their manhood abroad before being allowed to return home. Teenage Yuda (Iko Uwais) has travelled to the big city of Jakarta for his merantau but soon finds himself in trouble when he helps a young stripper named Astri (Sisca Jessica) escape the clutches of a human trafficker, Ratger (Mads Koudal). Luckily for Yuda, he's skilled in the martial art of silat, leading to plenty of high-kicking action. ~ Sandra Bencic, Rovi

      Merantau is the first film collaboration between director Gareth Evans and action star Iko Uwais. The story is pretty simple and follows a young man on his coming of age pilgrimage away from home. The highlight of the movie is the brutal display of the Indonesian martial art silat, which is showcased throughout the film. Heavy on action and an easy to follow story which laid the blueprint for the future RAID series between the two. Recommended for sure!

      If you've seen The Raid and The Raid 2, you'll love this. It's directed by the same guy who directed both Raid movies and stars both men who starred in both Raid movies as well.

      Wasn't nearly as good as The Raid: Redemption, but solid fighting sequences and decent plot, nonetheless.

      This movie is pretty good for his first try, but Raid 1 & 2 is far superior.
