Here's the official trailer:
After a series of setbacks leave Yuda homeless and uncertain about his new future, a chance encounter results in him defending the orphaned Astri from becoming the latest victim of a European human trafficking ring led by the wildly psychotic, Ratger and his right-hand man Lars. With Ratger injured in the mêlée and seeking both his "merchandise" and bloody retribution, Yuda's introduction to this bustling city is a baptism of fire as he is forced to go on the run with Astri and her younger brother Adit as all the pimps and gangsters that inhabit the night hound the streets chasing their every step. With escape seemingly beyond their grasp, Yuda has no choice but to face his attackers in an adrenaline charged, jaw-dropping finale.
Well you already read my take on that. Stupid plot for sure. Star character has no movie experience listed by IMDB. Looks like video quality is going to be good. Fight quality from the trailer looks decent, but nothing special. I think they're basically just trying to play off the whole Tony Jaa craze - not a bad move. My main complaint is that a lot of this (the actual fighting, not the beginning sequence) doesn't even look like Silat and I wanted a Silat movie.
To me it looks like Yet Another Martial Arts Movie (YAMAM).
Here's a video demonstrating some Silat stuff (watch the guys in red).. it's mixed with some Kali too:
