Viewing Notes

While the story of Merantau is something we’ve seen in action flicks many, many times, it makes up for it by having some badass fight scenes. Really, though, isn’t that what you want out of a movie like this anyways? Especially standout is the last fight where the star takes on a dozen guys, kicks all of their asses then takes on the two main protagonists. Wicked!
