BUFFALO BOYS (Theatrical Release Indonesia 2018)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Buffalo Boys, due to its brutal story, works as an adult mature movie with a standard R Rating that would be in the high range due to its realism. It works along the lines of a combination of Kill Bill and The Killer. This Indonesian film has English subtitles, a straight-forward and easy to follow storyline, some sexual references, good direction, and professional acting. The scenery is unique due to its Indonesian setting. The story is not easy to take at times due to the brutality. But it earns its watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. For the exceptionally mature audience, this is a great story that is easy to watch and come away feeling full due to its ability to cross international border lines well. Reminiscent of when spaghetti westerns first hit the American scene.
