If "The Raid" was your introduction to Indonesian action cinema, you would be excused if you thought that there was no way to make a film crazier and more violent than that. The Night Comes For Us would prove you wrong. Balls to the wall crazy, wincingly-painful looking action sequences where dirty combatants fight dirtier, taking up any random sharp or rusty object and using it to tear flesh. The fistfights are so gruesome the gun action seems almost tame in comparison. Eccentric assassins, yelling dudes with cleavers, Iko Uwais and Joe Taslim - this movie's got it all, if you have the stomach for it.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto) by Barry Hertz

By exploiting the raw physical power of the Indonesian martial art called silat and then emptying buckets and buckets of fake blood upon your cast for kicks, filmmaker Timo Tjahjanto has birthed a monster of a movie, as brutal as it is hypnotic.


IndieWire by David Ehrlich

The Night Comes for Us is an alternately giddy and exhausting ordeal — a film that somehow manages to squeeze in way more plot than it needs, but not enough to make you care about who’s kicking who, let alone why.


The A.V. Club by Katie Rife

It uses a thin plot touching on the classic Hong Kong action themes of brotherhood and loyalty as an excuse to string together a series of gonzo action set-pieces so ingeniously bloody that one could conceivably classify the film as horror.


Variety by Richard Kuipers

This cartoonish cavalcade of carnage potently reunites “The Raid” stars Joe Taslim and Iko Uwais as former friends on a corpse-strewn collision course.


IGN by William Bibbiani

Uniquely violent, stylish, and engaging, The Night Comes For Us is an exciting prospect that delivers on all fronts.
