It's OK
20 December 2013 | by farah-asfSee all my reviews

As I yearn for more historical story in Indonesian, this movie not quite satiate my expectation, furthermore for depicting the 1st and lovable RI #1. Comparing "apple to apple" for president movies, the script is better than Lincoln (2012). Not only showing the history of independence fight in overall, but also bring the good and the bad of Soekarno characters, pretty much balancing love story, and (even though I am historian by my grandfather's storytelling) I dare say it's pretty much accurate on the historical side and characters. But none of the characters are explored enough, or has any scene as a focal point, thus makes this movie lack of emotions. Though I gotta admit Ario Bayu and Lukman Sardi are nailed the characters. On another plus side, no doubt, Indonesian movies are about enchanting motion pictures. So, overall it's OK but it's pretty much a tedious movie.
