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.

thought the movie itself was kinda poor but anyone who has seen the RAID 1 & 2 has to see this movie. The fight scenes are pretty good, the story not so much

Impressive. Different from the other martial art movies. The ending was unexpected though. 8.5/10

Merantau is a good Indonesian Martial arts film. Don't miss it. This review is by an Indian.

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.

This movie had kind of a onk bak vibe but it is a good movie 2 watch fights are good enough 2 keep you watchin

I seriously like this movie better than Ong Bak. Maybe the movements involved in this martial arts style appeal to me more. Seems quite practical too. I love it when he caught that first guy trying to jump the roof midair with that pole. He fu__ed that guy up! Then the one on the motorcycle. Damn dude, not a good day for you.

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

really good movie - its almost on the level of onBak but not quite, 10/10

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.
