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.
Length 106 minutes
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!
