Details

If you loved The Raid then you will not want to miss this blistering, action-packed thrill ride starring Iko Uwais. Washed ashore on a small Indonesian island, a man wakes up in hospital with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Student doctor Ailin (Chelsea Islan) names him Ishmael in honour of Moby Dick. As he struggles to regain his memory, the past is about to pay a call in the shape of evil gang boss Mr Lee (Suny Pang). When Lee kidnaps Ailin, it is a declaration of war and the indestructible “Ishmael” prepares to fight an entire army of sadistic killers who were once  his colleagues.

...plenty of bone-crunching biffo & bloody gunplay, but also allegory of Indonesia's troubled quest for a new identity as it still emerges from decades of oppressive 'parenting' under dictatorial president (& 'Father of Development') Suharto.
