SILAT WARRIORS: DEED OF DEATH (Blu-ray Review)
FROM WELL GO USA
Review by Tiger the Terrible😾
Mat Arip (Fad Anuar) is a cocky, irresponsible, self-centered gambling addict who gets in over his head with loan shark Haji Daud, even using the deed to his family’s land as collateral. When he can’t pay his debts - which Daud’s henchmen have already made difficult - it’s up to Mat’s brother, Ali (Khoharullah Majid), and sister, Fatimah (Feiyna Tajudin), to prevent this gang from taking everything they own.
With family patriarch (Pak Nayan) content to idly philosophize, smoke cigarettes and endlessly defend his inability to hold Mat Arip accountable for anything he’s ever done, the two siblings start kicking ass to save their brother, who eventually gets kidnapped by Daud’s gang.
Here’s the problem: At no time does Mat Arip display an iota of remorse for his actions, concern about his increasing debt nor any indication that he plans to quit gambling. He doesn’t apologize for risking everything the family has worked generations to attain. Even when Dad gives him bus & lunch money to go into town so he can sign over the title to the car he lost after losing a street racing bet, Mat Arip doesn’t offer so much as a thank you.
