    • Synopsis
    • In 2012, Gareth Evans’ THE RAID worldwide success makes Indonesia the new Eldorado for action movies. Yet, the movie’s (and its 2014 sequel) achievement remains quite an exception up until today with not many other Indonesian movies hitting the International distribution circuit.

      Curiously, Indonesian film action has a long-ongoing passionate story, closely related to the country’s own History. They were often a mere reflect of nation’s people inner feelings. Audiences would feed upon the strong force of the mythical screen heroes and forget about everyday life’s injustices, especially during the 1980s.

      After several golden ages, Indonesian action movies became less and less popular during the last two decades. Does this mean Indonesian people could reconcile with reality?
