Synopsis

Story centers on the aftermath of a suicide bombing in Indonesia, where a reckless American posing as a grad student is bent on vengeance but quickly finds that the world's problems can't be solved with violence alone. A mysterious American Marine/FBI agent Jake Travers (Kellan Lutz) teams with a Muslim cop Hashim (Ario Bayu) to hunt down a dangerous international jewel thief Malik (Mickey Rourke) who kidnaps a Sultan's daughter Sultana (Atiqah Hasiholan) in a plot to steal the royal treasury: exotic intrigue amid ancient palaces, mosques, temples, subterranean labyrinths and stone pyramids in the heart of Java.

Surprisingly Interesting & Nice !!

To start with, a very well sorted plot, story and good screenplay. The movie keeps getting you interested even in some dull scenes. Overall a very well written script and screenplay….good acting by Ario Bayu…I thought he did an excellent job in this movie.

Yeah…action is missing in some scenes but there is enough to enjoy !!… would have been a great movie if there were some more action packed scenes. I don't want to take away the credit from the director….he did a nice job but he could have done better with all the ingredients he had (plot, story, actors and locations)….nevertheless decent action flick.

Recommended from my side :-)

Not The Best, But Not Bad, Watchable...

Another movie from far east, Indonesia.

Clearly this is an action movie, if you like action, this movie could be your weekend options. Quite entertaining. A lot of action in there.

Tells the story of a special forces anti-terrorism cooperation with an American citizen solving terrorism cases.

Speaking of the actors may not be so well known, but their acting is quite good.

In the end, the film is worth watching. presents the story from the largest Muslim country in the world. Where many terrorists were arrested and prosecuted.

From 1 to 10 I give 6.5

Pretty Good Action Flick

A Muslim detective teams with an American (Kellan Lutz) posing as a graduate student to find the man (Mickey Rourke) behind a series of deadly terrorist bombings in Indonesia.

Although this seems in some ways to be an inferior-grade "Bourne" film, it has plenty to offer: a fresh lead actor, a great villain (Rourke, as a "klepto-terrorist") and all the action you expect from such a film -- explosions, gun fights and car crashes.

My biggest issues were not really with the film itself (which I thought was pretty good), but more technical matters. The DVD/BD seems to have not had the volume synced properly (conversations are too quiet, action too loud) and the subtitles are hard to read -- both because they are small, and also because they leave the screen too quickly. I would have enjoyed the film much more if these problems were corrected.
