Some of you may recall how impressed you were by the awesomeness presented in the trailer for franchise writer and director Syamsul Yusof‘s explosive, martial arts action-packed Fall gangster thriller, KL Gangster 2. Fanfare around the internet buzzed heavily around the film in the two years before the film’s theatrical release as moviegoers around the world who learned of the film’s existence hoped to learn more about further distribution of the film beyond its Malaysian borders.
Silat has had a role to play in many martial arts action movies for some time now. But one has to admit that never has the style itself taken up such a huge spotlight than in recent years with international action star Iko Uwais paving the way with the 2009 hit, Merantau, followed by its hybrid use in the urban action thriller, Seruban Maut (a.k.a. The Raid) and its upcoming sequel. On that note, get ready for some more Silat action of a female variety!
