BrianOrndorf.com - 9/10 by Brian Orndorf In dire need of a tighter edit and a few smiles, Merantau is a bizarrely lethargic picture, great with violence, but a complete chore to sit through between the punches.
User Review - 10/10 by Arie M Welll this movie make my body cannot stop to move!!! When he fight, my body push me to fight too. hahahaha.... The best movie I ever see.
User Review - 8/10 by Joel L This movie is so beautiful. Even if you're not a fan of kung-fu movies, this one is worth seeing. This movie basically follows a kid named Yuda on his merantau. His journey to the city takes him to this girl and her brother who were left behind by their family. The girl "danced" for a living, and the younger brother stole so they could make end's meat. I feel like words are not good enough to express the beauty of this movie. You just have to see it for yourself.
User Review - 8/10 by JY S Gareth Evan's Merantau is one enthralling martial arts movie out of Indonesia.In short, this film is about a young man going on his "Merantau." Actually, a more fun way to describe the story is a young man goes to Jakarta and whoops some major buttocks. At just around 1 hour and 45 minutes (international cut) this picture is not surprising at how it is set up. The first 30-45 minutes is all character and story, with a couple very small training sequences to serve as an appetizer. At this point the film is at the brink of finally unleashing the pain ... and it does.The final hour or so contains a ton of action and there is only two, maybe three, slow motion shots. There is also no repeating shots from different angles for massive moves or hits. This is straight up high octane martial arts and stunt work. This truly is fantastic stuff.Iko Uwais not only displays his Silat martial arts style, but he shows that he has the ability to act as well. Other than Sisca Jessica as the damsel in distress and Mads Koudal as the villain, there isn't much more to say about the acting.Merantau is one of those films where the action is pretty much all that matters, although there is a decent enough story to go along with it. Check it out if time allows.
User Review - 8/10 by Lorenzo v immediately more polished and subtle than ong bak, it's indonesia's return to motion picture martial arts featuring silat! the bone crunching, fist smashing, broken-bottle-cutting (lol) action is complimented with an actual story!
User Review - 8/10 by Aryo G Merantau adalah salah satu film action terbaik di Indonesia. meskipun banyak kekurangannya, tetapi tetap bagus untuk dinikmati adegan actionnya dan juga kisahnya yang sarat akan makna kehidupan.

User Review - 8/10 by Matt N Abit slow to to start but over all a good martial arts film
User Review - 8/10 by Brandon S One of the most highly underrated martial arts films ever made! The action is unbelievable and the acting is surprisingly good.
User Review - 6/10 by David P It does not matter that the acting is lousy and the story is paint-by-the-numbers predictable. It does not matter that we've seen all of these fights done better by the likes of Jackie Chan & Jet Li. It does not matter that the main bad guy looks like he could be a stunt double for Christian Bale or that his right hand man comes off as a Richard Norton wannabe. What does matter is the sheer delight of watching Iko Uwais brutally punch, kick and pummell his way through lots of mobsters & pimps all over the city of Jakarta.
User Review - 6/10 by Dave J Friday, March 30, 2012 (2009) Merantau (In Indonesian with English subtitles) ACTION Iko Uwais stars as Yuda, a 'Silat' martial artist who has intentions to move to a bigger city to open his own martial art school teaching 'silat'. Upon chasing a kid through the alley ways to retrieve his wallet, he then meets his older sister working as some sort of escort and of course gets his ass kicked by a few thugs, but realized he was beaten was because he was holding back and decides that wasn't going to be case the next time he were to confront them again! He confronts the main baddie and after he saves her, he gets his face cut up during a confrontaion and vows revenge on him for wrecking his face. The girl then gets kidnapped again but not for pimping her out, but for illegal human smuggling this time forcing Yuda to go and save her again! All it is, is a much lower budget version of Tony Jaa's "Ong-Bak" movie since the action is more realistic and credible because wires are hardly used unlike this movie and in addition, they're also more stunts along with the fighting. This is more of an introduction to introduce 'silat' martial arts to the world than looking at it as a better film than it's predecessor which is Ong-Bak. And perhaps with more action fight rehearsing and with more money, this film could've been decent but it's just a pass at best! 2.5 out of 4
