Merantau: In Minangkabau, West Sumatera, Yuda a skilled practitioner of Silat Harimau is in the final preparations to begin his "Merantau" a century's old rites-of-passage to be carried out by the community's young men that will see him leave the comforts of his idyllic farming village and make a name for himself in the bustling city of Jakarta. 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 mle 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.

the ending destroyed it! i havent seen many indonesian martial arts movies yet, but iko uwais seems to be a great fighter. not quite on a tony jaa level (seriously: NO ONEs on a tony jaa level except tony jaa himself and jeejaa yanin) but still a good watch for martial arts fans. i was about to rate it 5/5 but as i said i hate that ending. so its 4/5

I hate those kind of ending, everything is going good and then...It was heart warming, but sad.

Not as good as the Raid, but still watchable. The acting in the film was ok at best, but thats not the reason we watch films like this. Unfortunately the choreography wasnt as good as I expected it to be. I feel like it shined in some parts but most of the time it just didnt have that quick bursts of action that I was expecting. But over all it still wasnt a bad movie. A solid 7/10 for me.

As far as narrative goes,this one's a stormer,the fight sequences are almost secondary to some very fine acting,an excellent pre-cursor to "The Raid ".6/10

I loved this film although I was a little disappointed with the ending. This is a great movie for any martial arts enthusiast. Aside from the martial arts there are lessons to be learned through the acts of the main character.

This movie was like Ong Bak but instead of doing Muay Thai or Muay Boran the art is Harimau Silat .I enjoyed the story loved the inter action of the hero and his family. The innocence if a country boy in the big wild naked city.Please include more movies of this type very thankful for your site.

True: kind of a onk bak vibe, great fighting scenes, (Kind of)sad ending too wasn't expecting that. Typical story for this type of film, but I found it slow, somewhat boring not enough action though well done. I'll ll probably watch it again and would really like to see something else from the Silat style, like maybe when the kid grows up - Merantau 2.

Did you notice how the main character, his brother, and Mad Dog from Raid Redemption are all in this movie? This was not as good, but had good fighting scenes. The plot needed work - how does a man's spiritual journey entail saving a human smuggling ring? I thought it was going to be a little deeper than that. 3/5 stars.
