It takes an hour for "Buffalo Boys" to deliver the kind of action you're expecting from an Indonesian genre flick - relatively long takes, actors performing their own stunts, and hits selling a sense of impact - and this film has the misfortune of following last year's bloody masterpiece "The Night Comes For Us." But for me, the Western/martial arts mashup is still enough of a novelty that I came away entertained.
An idea to combine Indonesian history & western elements seems like a complicated thing to do. But BUFFALO BOYS proved that it make that idea worked well in the movie. This movie has some cheesy dialogues. But, I didn't watch this movie for its storytelling or plot. I watched BUFFALO BOYS because I wanna get entertained & this movie is highly entertaining. Dear my Indonesian friends, please watch it in a big screen..
