Just thought I’d catch up for all those currently initiated with obscure Asian film lore. This one, Patriot: Selamatkan Indonesia, is a humble superhero action thriller only in short form but nonetheless boasts an assuring concept between its July teaser as well as its first-look stills currently floating around on social media.
The official trailer is now here though, and more than enough to help us make do until it releases somewhere at some point. Jaymes Riyanto is starring and directing the pic in the title character, based the book “Operation Sandi Yudha” by retired general A.M. Hendropriyono, and is currently intended as a proof-of-concept for a larger project that will hopefully manifest in due time.
