5.0 out of 5 stars Indonesian cult classic... and I can see why! 19 Aug 2010
"Jaka Sembung" or "The Warrior" as its known over here was a huge thing in Indonesia when it came out, it practically turned Barry Prima into an overnight legend in his native country, now we have the chance to see what all the fuss was about and whether it lives up to the hype, in my opinion it does but only if you like your classics with wild martial arts, evil dictators, over the top gore, mad magicians and a plot so wacky you can't help applaud it. Based on a popular Indonesian comic book hero Jaka Sembung fights against the Dutch invaders who once enslaved the Indonesian populace, they intend to rule with an iron fist with one man in particular a constant thorn in their tyranical side and try as they might they can't find the man to take him down, that is until they revive a wizard of immeasurable ability, tortured and seemingly defeated it appears all is lost but Jaka has a score to settle and reimerges for one last fight where the loser leaves in pieces. Unlike most films this one just can't be pidgeon-holed, I guess it could be described a hong-kong action film mixed with an Italian gore as shot by Indonesians but really its a cult classic of its own creation. If you like this film it has several sequels though they aren't really in distribution so you might not find them, still if you want more Indonesian action try Devil's Sword [DVD] [1983] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] or the more gory tale of revenge and witchcraft Queen of Black Magic [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] or if you're really adventurous the all out insanity of witchcraft horror Mystics in Bali [DVD] [2007] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] ,I can personally recommend all three if you liked "The Warrior".
