Storyline

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 Agung

The character is based on book written by Bastian Tito. So it's pretty much the same like TV show I used to watch when I was little, I believe so did 90s Indonesian kids. It made me feeling very nostalgic like I was taken back to the old times. This movie got a whole new level.. Well, it was produced in now era (jaman now) so more sophisticated technique with advanced technology and more interesting plot (I guess). Anw, There are some aspects that I want to share with you guys. (Ps. This is just my opinion. Different taste will have different pespective)

Plot : Almost every Indonesian movie has lack of storyline. On the other hand, Wiro Sableng has a not so bad plot. You don't have to think heavily in order to follow the story. It was very light. You still can catch up after you perforced went to the rest room or check your messages (Please don't do this. It's totally annoying. I don't like either to sit next to people who's checking on their phone during the movie). There were some acts which I've found way too exaggeratted. Especially the laughing. Whether came up from the script or the casts were just improvising, it all just too much. Jokes were okay but some weren't well-executed. I tried to laugh at them but I just couldn't. Sorry !

Casts : Casts is one of the most important things to attract people to see the movie. Vino Bastian, perfect !! Lukman Sardi,, ooh the best...probably my favorite. Whereas, there are some characters who aren't really fit with casts. Or maybe acting is just not their strong suit. Again, this is just my opinion.

Cinematography : As far as I'm concern, the genre is an action movie which is why the shot should be integrated with coreography so we can enjoy every single move espcecially on fighting scenes. As for me, I didn't quite succeeded. The angles were not harmonize with coreography so seems less artistic. Probably I just forgot to use my glasses. Never mind !

Scenes : In this aspect, I would like to brought up the fighting. There are like a long-endlessly fighting scenes. I thought it was gonna take the whole movie but then I realized, this is an action movie, don't expect two love birds dancing and sucking each other's faces forever (in a romantic way tho').

Missing piece : Everytime I heard Wiro Sableng, things come up in my mind are : Jurus kunyuk melempar buah, Pukulan Matahari combined with 212 Mighty Dragon Axe (Kapak Naga Sakti 212). Jurus kunyuk melempar buah, I didn't see it at all. Pukulan matahari few scenes but that's it. They didn't emphasize it with giant thunder as the ultimate weapon to defeat his enemy. Maybe they're just saving the expense because my friend, it'll cost a fortune to create such an effect on CGI. The Axe, hmmm,, not bad... I honestly have no idea what to say but that was okay.

Score : Remarkable. This is my favorite. Maybe worth an Indonesia Movie Awards. Rushes my adrenaline during those borring fighting scenes that made me almost fell asleep. Good job !!

  • My conclussion -
I'm always being sceptical when it comes to Indonesia movie. I gotta say, Wiro Sableng is not a bad movie, but also not a great one. It was okay and entertaining. You can enjoy it together with your love one and family or friends, stranger, one night stand, or people you barely met on tinder. For me, Wiro Sableng is the best Indonesia action movie in this 21st century.
