In a bandit raid that killed both his parents, 4-year-old WIRO SABLENG "Crazy Wiro" is rescued and raised by an eccentric old female warrior, SINTO GENDENG "Screwy Sinto". The perpetrator of the raid turns out to be Sinto's former disciple, MAHESA BIRAWA, who turns his back on her and uses her ultimate fighting technique for his own vicious purposes. Stung by betrayal and worried that Mahesa will grow even more dangerous, she teaches Wiro a secretive, legendary martial art called Silat and grooms him to be the next 212 Dragon Axe Warrior. After 17 years of training, Wiro inherits the mighty 212 Axe and fighting style from his master, leaving the mountains he has called home to put an end to Mahesa's evil plans. On his journey to find Mahesa, Wiro meets fellow travelers BUJANG GILA TAPAK SAKTI "Mad Mighty Fist" and ANGGINI. Wiro then comes to understand the teachings of 212, the balance of contrary forces and the thin line between good and evil. He becomes determined to improve himself...Written by

Entertaining! Brings Indonesian movie to the next level.
As a reader of the novel and following his TV series, of course I am very much waiting for the presence of this Wiro Sableng film to be released. This film in my opinion has succeeded in elevating the Indonesian film industry to a higher level by making higher standards. With the help of 21 Century Fox, it's no wonder that this film has a classy taste. Cinematography, action action or choreography, music score. Everything is cool. But there are indeed some things that should make this film even better. Like the story plot that is less neat, the characters that need to be improved, and the colossal impression that feels less grand. Hopefully it's better in the sequel later.
