It’s safe to say that post-Raid fandom has dimmed with the state of Indonesian action cinema remaining more on-going with its more local productions. It’s with that in mind that we turn to director Fajar Nugro‘s latest regional entry, Gangster, and Indo-Aussie actor Hamish Daud leading the cast in a story centered on a man pursuing a life with the woman he loves in Jakarta until he ends up crossing paths with a criminal gang.
Raid franchise co-star Yayan Ruhian also lends his flair of screen charm as usual, and surely while the comedy here is more local than anything as is the rest of the film, it’s a mild reminder of why the fans at large love Ruhian as he steps out on his own. Alas, as you would imagine, there’s drama, definitely some fighting, and a good share of brutality to boot. And on that note, I invite you to hold onto your balls when you watch this trailer below.
