I've been watching a number of Indonesian movies lately and I've been oddly impressed. Nothing has exactly blown me away but the entertainment value and quality has been far more consistent than I'm used to.
Target is what would happen if you turned Saw (2004) into a comedy. It tells the story of 9 celebrities who all get tricked into participating in a game of life and death and it's actually a surprising amount of fun.
Target was not well received and that saddens me because I can't quite work out why. The cast do a great job, the characters are well handled, the plot is fun, there are laughs to be had, so what's the problem?
The movie is intentionally (I hope) goofy. With ridiculous fight scenes and silly dialogue and that worked for me especially considering this horror sub-genre doesn't exactly see comedy very often.
I am now oddly enamored with Indonesian cinema, bring more on! Even this could happily use a sequel.
Really quite funny in places
Plenty of jokes miss their mark
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Indonesian cinema rocks
Actors are dramatic
We should make a tv series out of this, only with real celebrities..........and real outcomes (Insert evil laugh here)
