Silat Movie

There hasn't been a prominent silat movie released in years. Perhaps the martial arts genre is overdone, what with Hong Kong filmmakers' increasingly contrived fly-by-wire productions, lukewarm Western attempts and the random Thai offerings.

Sportingly jumping into the fray is Merantau (Migration), an Indonesian silat movie which tells of a village silat expert who travels to the city and gets into some big-time action. This movie recently made its run in selected Asian countries, for those interested in a sampler, click on the video (some violent content).
