Good Indonesia-Japan collaboration
17 February 2014 | by viceroy_88See all my reviews

The tagline "Inside Us Lives A Killer" really tells us about this movie.

The story is a little ..., you know, just like other psycho movies, we seldom understand why they became the way they are and why they do what they do. And we weren't told about the backgrounds of the victims.

It didn't bore me, I enjoyed the killings quite much.

We were kept in edge with scenes that felt like final ones but they weren't. We were kept guessing how would the characters end up. Though some were guessable, there were several unexpected scenes.

The cinematography was unexpectedly quite good. The camera works were likable, shot from good angles, reflections on the glass, etc.

What I dislike are the pace, acting and its dialog. Draggy pace, uncalled-for acts, profanity-full dialog, and often felt so fake. This is what most of Indonesian movies are like.

And then there were some stupid scenes that made me laughed mockingly. Like, why would you ask "Who are you?" to a burglar/killer who wears a mask and points a gun at you at your house?

Overall, this collaboration is good. I hope Indonesian movie makers could learn a lot from collaborations like these in the future, and in time they would make good movies themselves.
