Right, well if "The Raid" or "The Raid: Redemption" didn't put Indonesia on the worldmap of action movies, then "The Night Comes For Us" certainly will do so. This 2018 movie is definitely one to watch. I found it on Netflix and didn't hesitate for a moment to sit down and watch it.
Why? Well, first of all it had both Iko Uwais and Joe Taslim on the cast list, and it was an Indonesian action movie. And if it was just equally adrenaline packed as "The Raid", then I would have been more than happy. It turned out that they took the energy and action from "The Raid" movies and amped it up... Yeah, didn't think that was possible, but they did...
Combine an overload of action, violence and mayhem with a nice storyline and throw in some good and interesting characters for good measure, then you have "The Night Comes For Us". This was a non-stop action orgy from start to end, and the movie never once lost its momentum or had a dull moment.
Needless to say that the action sequences in the movie were spectacular, lots of great choreography and execution of martial arts and practical stunts on the screen, which all came together for a very hard-hitting movie.
It was nice to see Iko Uwais not playing the archetypical hero for a change, and he did so with the usual excellency that he brings to the more heroic archetype characters. And I will say that Joe Taslim really carried this movie phenomenally with his performance.
If you are a stranger to Indonesian cinema and if you enjoy action movies, then "The Night Comes For Us" is highly recommended. This is a movie for men by men - 100% testosterone and adrenaline all the way.
