Local production in international movie making. A class of its own.
The movie has an expensive cinematology (by movieholicsss)
I watched completely, its cinematology very classy yet the story is very genuine. to compare, in my opinion Message Man is slightly better than The Raid.

Wow, much better than I was expecting, especially considering... (by TheTopDawgCritic)
Wow, much better than I was expecting, especially considering this is a non-Hollywood international Indonesian and Australian low budget B-grade film.When I review a film, I don't compare apples to oranges, and thus rate it on its production merits. This is the 'first' ever film by director, writer, editor and producer Corey Pearson. WOW did he hit this one out of the ballpark - especially considering all the hats he wore for his first film!Right from the start, the cinematography and directing seemed like it came from a seasoned film-maker. Excellent shots - pans, zooms, <more>
angles, etc. - all perfect.Sure we've seen many of these types of hit-man films, but this one still felt refreshing, especially due to the films location setting. The films 91 min length was perfect, and the pacing was spot on.The casting was mainly no-name actors or C-listers, but all performed really well, although I wasn't too impressed with Paul O'Brien's performance - or even as the casting choice. He seemed very stale, and in the beginning, uninteresting.The choreography for the fight scenes was decent, with a surprisingly perfect amount of gore. The sound/score was on point.Overall this was a real treat to watch, especially knowing that this was Corey Pearson's first dabble in film-making. His production was better than some of the big budget Hollywood-backed A-list productions I've seen lately. This film-maker is certainly one to watch!It's a well deserved 9/10 from me, and if anyone questions my review as being fake, click on my username and you will see my almost 600 reviews and 1000+ ratings. Ignore the haters and wannabe critics and watch this film, I'm sure you will be as surprised as I was.
At first i didn't know this movie took place in Pulau Seribu, Indonesia. the movie itself delivers a good picture of the island and of course the bloody action from Paul O'Brien and Mike Lewis.
Actionpacked Indonesian Movie (by ricsiegfried)
The storyline of MESSAGE MAN is overall refreshing. The conflict presented in the movie could be said to be anti-mainstream compared to other action films have ever existed in Indo. Very original in upholding justice and truth. Every scene felt very real and super tense. Very cool.Is there something that pique curiosity for a continuation or not? Hopefully there is ...Overall, it is a good Indonesian action films that I have ever seen. Makes my heart pounds and even forced me to close my eyes several times untill the film ends ....
