(Java) Heat is on
I guess I was expecting some really lame b-action movie and I got a pretty exciting one instead. Not complaining mind you. Quite the opposite, the main actor here does fulfill everything a main character of such a movie has to do and/or be. It’s not only his physique that is right, but also his presence. His relationship with another character tries to do something and might fail here and there, but it’s still accomplishes a lot of things, story-wise.
Of course it is not so much the story (or any message, if you want to read one into it), that will make or break the movie, but the action. While I like Rourke, he does seem a bit stale playing this role. It’s a shame, a better villain, would have also been a better movie. As it is, it is decent and worth a watch
An Entertaining & Balanced Action Film
Watching the main character blunder around the beauty of Indonesian culture, society and places strongly reminded me of the years I spent living in the Philippine jungles and the concrete jungles of Manila. The film’s shooting locations really highlight the urban sprawl and chaos of SE Asian countries.
This action film uses a recognizable plot and familiar characters to highlight surprising things. I appreciate how the film promotes and expounds on Indonesian culture. Most action films in foreign countries never take the time to sincerely highlight political conflict (govt corruption), social conflict (religious values) and open racism against white people.
I like how the natives use the racist slur for foreigners (bule) to illustrate ignorance and reference imperialism. But this is balanced by the American character’s development as he learns about the country and pursues his goal. He is a complex character that reflects how people would really behave in similar situations.
Ario Bayu’s strong performance as a clean cop and family man who loves his country is quite refreshing when compared with the hundreds of films I watched during my travels in Asia that only depict corrupt, selfish law enforcement. He actually reminds me of one of my adult Chinese students (a policeman) who become a UN peacekeeper. I like the conflict and camaraderie between the two main characters.
Mickey Rouke does a good job as the soulless villain who uses the fanatical Muslim extremist for his own purposes. The director does an excellent job at illustrating the extremist’s desperation for change against his respect for values, women and his country.
This action film will entertain you while allowing you to appreciate modern Indonesia.
