Movie Info

The directorial debut of acclaimed Indonesian cinematographer Yadi Sugandi and the first film in a Freedom Trilogy celebrating Indonesian national history, Merah Putih (aka The Red and The White, another name for the Indonesian flag), is a sweeping historical epic that follows a band of soldiers fighting for their country's independence from the Dutch in 1947. The all-star cast is a veritable who's who of Indonesian cinema -- Lukman Sardi, Donny Alamsyah, Darius Sinathrya, and T. Rifnu Wikana -- and the film features lush cinematography of the beautiful Javanese countryside and special effects by some of Hollywood's leading technicians during the film's battle scenes. ~ Sandra Bencic, Rovi

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Rotten (7)

  • In the end it resorts to slow-motion violence, confirming its mediocrity.

  • Not too bad, though a little plodding.

    November 4, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This clich-ridden war story from Indonesian director Yadi Sugandi suggests that the Dutch occupation of Indonesia in the post-war period played out like a tawdry TV movie made with the help of a dressing-up box and lots of fake blood and fireworks.

    Top Critic
  • The historical events may be little known but everything else from the swelling score to the cardboard characters feels all too familiar.

    November 8, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The subject is fascinating, but the approach is flawed.

    November 4, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • With the score swelling ludicrously every time the leads so much as scratch their heads, this would-be creation myth falls flat on its face.

    a interesting background to story, but it comes off dull at times, with uninspired action and acting
