Action fans could hardly wish for anything more than what’s served up in “The Night Comes for Us
,” a Jakarta-set Triad crime epic boasting some of the most inventive, gory, and dazzlingly choreographed screen violence in recent memory. Confidently executed by Indonesian writer-director Timo Tjahjanto
, whose credits as one half of the Mo Brothers team include “Killers
” and “Headshot
,” this cartoonish cavalcade of carnage potently reunites “The Raid
” stars Joe Taslim
and Iko Uwais
as former friends on a corpse-strewn collision course. Though confusing at times and a little too much of a good thing at two hours, “Night” should satisfy the target audience via Netflix
, where it launches Oct. 19.
An extremely energetic workout on the familiar tale of a criminal who turns his back on the mob following a crisis of conscience, “Night” sets things up with text information about “The Six Seas,” an elite squad of Triad enforcers.
