After a series of setbacks leave Yuda homeless and uncertain about his new future, a chance encounter results in him defending the orphaned Astri from becoming the latest victim of a European human trafficking ring led by the wildly psychotic, Ratger and his right-hand man Lars. With Ratger injured in the mêlée and seeking both his “merchandise” and bloody retribution, Yuda’s introduction to this bustling city is a baptism of fire as he is forced to go on the run with Astri and her younger brother Adit as all the pimps and gangsters that inhabit the night hound the streets chasing their every step. With escape seemingly beyond their grasp, Yuda has no choice but to face his attackers in an adrenaline charged, jaw-dropping finale.

Give This New Movie Crew a Viewing!
There are definitely problems with the pacing of the movie. But overall, I would call this one a success. We have a director that found the lead actor while shooting a documentary about the Indonesian martial art of Pencak Silat. The director scores some major props just by introducing this fighting style that I, and many others probably, have never even heard of. The director is also taking a chance by actually setting up shop in Indonesia. This to me shows he isn’t trying to make big budget Hollywood movies but is instead trying something new. The movie could have been better sure, but lets give it up for some originality and freshness I say. The Raid: Redemption and The Raid 2 are both excellent films by the same director and cast of this movie. I for one am looking forward to some new approaches by this squad from Indonesia!
awesome action movie, excellent direction by Gareth, breathtaking choreography by iko uwais.
Cole Abaius of Film School Rejects calls the film a “Mind-exploding action sequences coupled with genuine emotional impact.”
Harry Knowles of Ain’t It Cool opines that the film is “a tremendous martial arts film”; noting it as an “outstanding” film.
Moises Chiullan of Hollywood Elsewhere wrote that the film is “one of the more compelling and powerful martial arts films” he has seen.
Andrew Mack, reviewing for Twitch Film, wrote that the film “is the next great martial arts film to come out and one of the best this past decade.”
Todd Brown, on another review for Twitch Film, praises the film by saying that it “serves very loud notice that Indonesia is back in the action game.”
Mike Leeder of Impact Magazine expresses his excitement toward the film, saying that it “proves Indonesian action cinema can stand alongside the best of the rest of the world.”
Gareth Evan’s Merantau is a very finely photographed & expertly choreographed film. It’s an action film that will satisfy most action fans in more ways than one. The movie is almost non-stop action from start till end. Iko Uwais is really a great athlete and martial artist. The budget was low but the movie never felt cheesy or tiresome. It had a decent story compared to other action movies n completely different ending. Was not even aware of Gareth Evans or iko uwais. I was completely impressed with Gareth evan’s direction n Uwais’ action scenes. After watching this I became a fan of Gareth n Uwais. Their next collaboration “raid 1 n raid 2” were the best action flicks in a decade. God bless them both n looking forward for raid 3 n their future projects.
