Oh so violent.

For those who thought that The Raid 1 & 2 were the last word in kinetic, ultra-brutal martial arts movies, think again: The Night Comes For Us, from director Timo Tjahjanto, is a strong contender for the most excessively violent, blood-drenched action flick ever made. The film's many fight scenes are wonderfully choreographed and flawlessly executed, Tjahanto's breath-taking direction employing shooting techniques that are guaranteed to astound, although it's the sheer quantity of blood and guts that really impresses. The film stars Joe Taslim as triad member Ito, who seeks redemption for all the terrible things that he has done by saving a young girl, Reina (Asha Kenyeri Bermudez), from his hit squad. Having gunned down his own men and escaped with the girl, Ito finds himself targeted by the triad's top killers, who include Raid star Iko Uwais as his old pal Arian, Julie Estelle (The Raid 2's Hammer Girl) as a motorcycle-riding assassin, and a pair of lesbian hit-women: Elena (Hannah Al Rashid), who is armed with a kukri knife, and Alma (Dian Sastrowardoyo), who wields a whirling wire weapon. As Ito, aided by his loyal friends Bobby (Zack Lee), Fatih (Abimana Aryasatya) and Wisnu (Dimas Anggara), battles to protect Reina, viewers are treated to all manner of graphic violence: bodies are beaten and mutilated, necks are slashed, and bones are broken. A man is hung on a meathook, someone is machine gunned in the face, and a grenade rips another poor bloke to pieces. There's a shotgun blast to the foot, a knife through the neck, a severed hand, an evisceration, pool balls to the skull, a hook in the crotch, a utility knife in the mouth (and through the cheek), and more bullet hits and stabbings than I can recall. The stuntwork is amazing and it's hard to believe that no-one was seriously injured. The carnage is so spectacular that it's easy to forgive the simplicity of the plot (the narrative is not nearly as involved as The Raid 2; it's more akin to the original Raid movie in terms of complexity).

The Latest & Greatest Next Level Asian Action Masterpiece that sets the bar for the next 8 years !!!

This was Some Next Level Cinematic Orgasmic Nirvana of Feel Good Giddy Heart Pumping Joy !!! But there are some familiar beats that give you De'ja' Vu Memories of past triumphs of the last 5 decades !!! The sound track recalls those Italian Horror Flicks from the 1980's !! I also got Sonny Chiba and Sue Shiomi 1970's Japanese Action Club feels from some of the fights !! The Apartment Rumble gave pure Grindhouse Memories of all those Gang Fight films from the 1970's to 1980's !!!! For the Final Fight I learned that Joe and Iko were really throwing down with actual hits and kicks like the Hong Kong Action Stars of the 1980s to 90's !!! Real Fighting !!! Then all the Blood and Guts remind me of the Splatter Gore Gonzo Films from Japan in the 2000's !! I've seen this film several times already because like the Raid and Raid 2 which I've seen 100's of times either in full or just certain fights !!!I loved the Operator and Alma and Elena !!! When Dian Sastrowardoyo laughs at her opponent I'm reminded of all the great Asian Villains who laughed during those Kung Fu Theater Flicks from the 1970s to 80's !!! I loved when the Operator tells Alma that she will regret wearing white !!!I loved Julie Estelle and Hannah Al Rashid speaking French to each other( because they are both part French ). It felt partially like watching a French Splatter Film from the 2010's during their final fight !! Well looks like this film will hold the bar for the next 8 years until the next latest and greatest action film takes the bar and hoists it higher !!!! If not 8 years then maybe the next 4-5 years !!!! This all in all felt like something Brand New but with all the good feels of something classic and Nostalgic !! Take THAT Current CGI Overloaded American Action Drivel !!! Tom Cruise can never be Badass !! The current Chinese and Hong Kong Churn out Tosh =too much wire work and CGI !! Thailand Action Films lost the Nerve !!! Korean Action Films are too censored !!! Current Japan Action Films not even close !!! Indian Action films too much singing and dancing !!! Can't wait for a non-Indonesian Action Film to come out that proves me wrong !!! Fingers Crossed !!! UPDATE - Halloween 2018 - After taking a week off because I was constantly watching certain scenes over and over again or just watching the movie without subtitles because I have seen it so many times with subtitles and I even saw it for the first time with no sound and just Indonesian subtitles so I went cold turkey without watching The Night Comes For Us and waited until Halloween to watch it with fresh eyes !!! And Boy do I notice details that I overlooked before !!! Like at the end Arian's Macau crew are the ones that Chien Wu Summoned to shoot Arian !!! even the Hostess that Arian rescued is part of it !!! The one to put the bullet to the head of Arian is his right hand man who will be a Six Seas in Arian's place !!! Also at the beginning in Macau , I always thought Arian slammed Big Boss Brother into the window but he slammed his head into the glass table !! When Ito picks up Reina in the parking garage she is giggling instead of crying !! Rumah Dara herself, Shareefa Daanish is the Sniper and I thought she was only in one scene but she was in another scene holding a heavy box while Chien Wu was seated confronting Arian !!! Also The Six Seas were present in a flashback to when Ito and Arian were initiated in the Triad !!! For the sequel it will be The Operator , Shinta & Reina getting payback !!! Probably Reina is grown up and trained by The Operator to get revenge for her village !! Shinta wants revenge for her fallen husband, Fatih as well as her former love interest Ito !!! The Operator went against Chien Wu so she will have a price on her head !!! I highly believe The Operator is a Bounty Hunter and used to be Number One of the Lotus !!! So you have Chien Wu and his new Enforcer who took Arian's spot after he killed him !!! Maybe Arian's Right Hand Man in Macau ?? Probably going to be a Blood Bath !!! Can't Wait !!!!! Until then I'm looking forward to More White Boy Bobby in Buffalo Boys and Foxtrot Six with Eka- Oka Antara with choreograhy from Iko, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman !!!! as well as Julie Estelle !!!

Chop chop chippity chop chop...

You think you've seen it all? Action, blood, guts, brains, bullets, body parts, broken teeth, sliced fingers, chopped heads, smashed heads, broken skulls, broken bones, protruding bones, hmmm? Think you've seen it all? SMH ... you haven't... until you watch this film. Watchers beware, this film is not for the faint of heart. If you plan on becoming an active war medic, or a member of the cartel torture squad... well you get my point. ..
