Despite the hype, Wiro Sableng has left a big question about genre filmmaking in the local cinema industry. Many consider Wiro to be a superhero movie, but from its cinematic elements and style, Wiro Sableng is closer to martial arts or silat genre.
The assumption that Wiro Sableng is similar to Hollywood superhero movie is inevitable. This is because there have been no reference in Indonesian films whose main characters have superhuman abilities.
Technological development in moviemaking has opened many possibilities for featuring superhuman abilities on screen. This has become a new standard in the film industry. Any films laden with special effects to portray superhuman abilities always bring with them the expectation of an enjoyable watching experience.
212 Warrior (also known as Wiro Sableng 212 and Wiro Sableng Pendekar Kapak Maut Naga Geni 212) is a 2018 Indonesian action-comedy film based on the Wiro Sableng novel series by Bastian Tito.
