This film has been mentioned in the Movies thread but it was so impressive I think it needs it's own thread.
I haven't been this impressed by a modern martial arts movie since Ong Bak. It's Indonesian so subtitles are necessary.
Calling it a martial arts movie doesn't do it justice either since it features some gunfights alongside numerous knife fights and unarmed fighting.
The choreography was just incredible. I've seen tons of martial arts films. Classic Shaw Bros. films , wuxia films of all kinds , the more modern Jackie Chan , Sammo Hung and Jet Li classics and I was completely blown away by this film.
The martial art featured in the film is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pencak_Silat
and it's fairly brutal and uses varieties of weapons.
If I was paid enough cash I'd fight a Judo master knowing I'd probably get my shirt ripped and get thrown to the floor pretty hard but no amount of cash would get me to fight someone proficient in this art. I'd probably get several bones broken before hitting the floor and then they'd break my neck for good measure.
If more Westerners watched foreign martial arts films I think they'd realize just how bad some of the Hollywood action films really are. The over editing in them and shifting of camera angles is just so horrendous you can barely see anything. The 1st Bourne movie gave me a headache just watching it and I'm sure a lot of Western audiences would consider that a good action movie.
If you're into action and martial arts movies this is a must see.
