Great Action Movie
16 July 2013 | by herzaaccountSee all my reviews

Java Heat seemed to be the embodiment of slick collaboration between Western and Eastern cultures that try to give a different perspective on Indonesia. The director Conor Allyn want to give an overview to the Hollywood industry that Islam in Indonesia is not as they think, through this film he tried to provide interesting facts about the gentle Javanese culture and harmony among religious people. It was known to have been felt directly by Conor who have experienced the film trilogy Red White and living in Indonesia about 4 years.

The involvement of two Hollywood actors in Java Heat is Mickey Rourke and Kellan Lutz, would have no need to doubt. Rather interesting in this film is how the collaboration of actors / actresses from Indonesia to compete acting with Mickey and Kellan. Ario Bayu, Rio Morrow, Atiqah Hasiholan, Mike Muliadro, Tio Pakusadewo, Astri Nurdin, Verdi Solaiman, Frans Tumbuan and Uli Auliani, considered able to work with a very slick and display the best qualities in this film.

In addition to showing the class action, the audience will also be invited to see the sights of Yogyakarta and Borobudur Temple is very intriguing. Keep in mind, Java Heat is an international movie that could be a 'vehicle' of the actors / actresses of our national towards Hollywood, as well as introducing Indonesian culture more broadly.

Overall, the film, which cost up to Rp 145 billion is very interesting and could be a great spectacle especially for lovers of action movies.
