CRITICISM

For those interested in Indonesian cinema, the release of The Big 4a mixture of comedy and unbridled action, was expected.

Director Timo Tjahjanto’s screenplay revolves around a young policewoman who uncovers a group of hired killers, The Big 4, made up of four adopted siblings. She will then team up with them to find the murderer of her father.

Timo Tjahjanto’s film offers some impressive sequences. There is a lot of humor and the relations between the members of the siblings are not easy. If some actors are quite convincing in the register of action, the chorography of the fight scenes is not always impeccable.

However, the energy used by the various actors makes it possible to have a good time. Especially whether it is the “good guys” or the “bad guys”, each has a very particular character and their specialties in the field of combat.

The humor is also sometimes a little heavy, but it goes well with colorful characters who sometimes play around, which makes the end result amusing.

After the big boss who calls himself the scorpion, the end opens with a new boss to come, another arachnid who will face them, the spider embodied by a woman who seems fatal.

Abimana Aryasatya is impeccable as an older brother. Putri Marino is very good as a pugnacious policewoman. Arie Kriting is fun as a sniper in love with his weapon. Lutesha is totally crazy as an explosives specialist. And Kristo Immanuel is very funny as a man who specializes in getting kidnapped. The 5 comedians offer a surprising recomposed family to which we quickly become attached. As for the bad guys, Marthino Lio is impeccable as a psychopath wanting to expand his empire of crime. And Michelle Tahalea is terrific in the role of her secretary leaving a cloud of dead in her path.

The very beautiful natural scenery of the island where a large part of the plot takes place brings a real hint of a change of scenery to the plot. The many explosions, shots in all directions and close combat allow for action ending sometimes with limbs flying. Not to mention that there are also completely offbeat underlings who get knocked out one after the other.

The Big 4 is a fun action film that provides a good time of entertainment and introduces a strange sibling that we hope to be able to follow for a while. With a story that follows smoothly, a delightful production and actors who do tons to delight the spectators, we have a lot of fun watching this work which sometimes fails in its quality, but never in its energy.

Friendly and entertaining.
