5.0 out of 5 stars Gareth Evan's Fantastic Debut April 25 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's the man's first movie, so as someone in the film industry, I can forgive some of the production short-comings, I mean, that's just how it goes when you start off. Now, the story is nice, simple, and it works. It's filled with touching and likable characters, and leaves you grinning, and maybe teary-eyes at points. But the one thing I HAVE to compliment in Gareth, is his ability to craft "moments." I love me a block buster action film, but often times an action scene seems to just fly by. In this film, you can tell that Gareth crafts each scene with care, the choreography is done excellently, and some of the action beats and actions scenes get cool and creative. Often making me wince, which is hard to do. Is it a perfect movie? No, like I said, the production value can get distracting, but hey, it's the guy's first foray, he did good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Indonesia is on the map April 6 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
the first full length movie showcasing the silat martial art is a very entertaining action flick that is still predictable for the most part but give a rather more human face to the action hero,
he is actually just a boy when he leaves his village to face the test of a pilgrimage in the "real" world. I would actually have liked that one of the deleted scenes was include in the final cut that gives more info on two of the characters relationship (I will let you be the judge). The aim was clearly to give Ong Bak a run for its money and I would say that for the most part it succeeds, the combat style is of course different from muay thai and the stuns are well done but not as impressive as T. Jaa or Jackie Chan movies, except for one that is the highlight of the chase scene. What is interesting is you that you can see that his way of fighting becomes more raw as he evolves into the story and his own journey after facing waves of henchmen until the ubiquitous end scene where he will face his final challenge in the face of two prostitution ring lord "friend" from europe. The only downside is the failed attempt to make you see their side of the story and the attempt to show the leader clear disregard for other's life was not convincing as well.
Bottom-line and excellent action movie with some nice twist due to a new style of fighting for the main audience. I cannot wait to see The Raid from the same team and see how they have matured since Merantau, according to the trailers the result already makes me salivating !

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Movie Nov. 2 2011
Format:Blu-ray
If you're a fan of martial art movies then this movie should be a must watch. Fantastic fight scene choreography that gets better as the movie goes along combined with great stunts makes this a great movie for any martial arts fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Indonesia Flick. Sept. 13 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I think i've seen this scenario before,in different form i have to say,but this one
gives a more human element side to it,the kid never really got to do the job he
set out to do,i call him a kid because he is young,so all young men have to leave
their village on their own and explore their own fate to see if they could make it
in the big city,so when fate put him on a different path that's were the fighting
begin,i can't say I'm giving anything away just look at the cover it tells it all,
overall this is one action pact movie that will not let you down,the style of
fighting i have to say,i've never seen,it's like a sweeping kick,but it's good.
plus this movie won the best Jury Award at the 2010 Action Fest.
5.1 HD Master Audio.
runtime 1 hr. 53 minutes.
Great Indonesia Flick.

3.0 out of 5 stars Action indonésienne July 29 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Les amateurs et amatrices de films d'arts martiaux apprécieront ce film qui rappelle les cascades spectaculaires du premier Ong Bak et les films hongkongais des années 90. Comme Merantau provient d'Indonésie c'est le Pencak Silat, art martial local, qui est à l'honneur.
