Ada satu hal yang cukup saya sesali ketika berangkat ke Korea yaitu tidak bisa nonton film MERANTAU. Film ini akan tayang di Indonesia tanggal 6 Agustus 2009 dan gak tau sampai kapan akan bertahan. Film merantau ini mengangkat tema tentang silat (Ilmu bela diri khas Indonesia).
Iko Uwais ... Yuda
Sisca Jessica ... Astri
Christine Hakim ... Wulan
Mads Koudal ... Ratger
Yusuf Aulia ... Adit
Alex Abbad ... Johni
Yayan Ruhian ... Eric
Laurent Buson ... Luc
Doni Alamsyah ... Yayan (as Donny Alamsyah)
Ratna Galih ... Ayi
Sinopsis dari film ini adalah sebagai berikut:
In Minangkabau, West Sumatera, Yuda a skilled practitioner of Silat Harimau is in the final preparations to begin his “Merantau” a century’s old rites-of-passage to be carried out by the community’s young men that will see him leave the comforts of his idyllic farming village and make a name for himself in the bustling city of Jakarta.
After a series of setbacks leave Yuda homeless and uncertain about his new future, a chance encounter results in him defending the orphaned Astri from becoming the latest victim of a European human trafficking ring led by the wildly psychotic, Ratger and his right-hand man Luc.
With Ratger injured in the melee and seeking both his “merchandise” and bloody retribution, Yuda’s introduction to the city is a baptism of fire as he is forced to go on the run with Astri and her younger brother Adit as all the pimps and gangsters that inhabit the night hound the streets chasing their every step. With escape seemingly beyond their grasp, Yuda has no choice but to face his attackers in an adrenaline charged, jaw-dropping finale.
Semoga saja, aku berkesempatan nonton film ini and moga2 DVD originalnya cepat release.
