Far Cry 3 (2012)
"Far Cry 3" is set on a tropical island somewhere in the vicinity of the Malay Archipelago, between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. After a vacation goes awry, protagonist Jason Brody must save his friends, who have been kidnapped by pirates and escape from the island and its unhinged inhabitants.
Jason Brody, his older and younger brothers Grant and Riley, his girlfriend Liza, and their friends Daisy, Keith, and Oliver, vacation in Bangkok to celebrate Riley getting his pilot's license. While skydiving, they land on an archipelago named the Rook Islands, controlled by pirates led by Vaas. Grant and Jason are held and taunted by Vaas while the others are taken to be held for ransom. Grant engineers their escape but is killed by Vaas; distraught, Jason manages to scramble away.
Jason is met by Dennis Rogers, an inhabitant of the island working with the Rakyat tribe to seize control back from the pirates. Dennis sees the potential in Jason to follow the Rakyat "path of the warrior" in rescuing his friends, and gives him a tatau that gives Jason the strength and knowledge to defeat the pirates.
With Dennis's help, Jason locates Daisy at the house of Dr. Earnhardt, who treats her injuries from escaping and agrees to shelter Jason's other friends from Vaas. Jason rescues Liza and brings her to Earnhardt's, and finds Daisy working to repair an old boat in order to escape the island. Jason tells Dennis he is not strong enough to defeat Vaas, and is introduced to Citra, the leader of the Rakyat and Vaas' sister. Citra tells Jason she will offer her help if he can retrieve the Silver Dragon, a ceremonial knife revered by the Rakyat.
Jason experiences a drug-induced vision given to him by Citra that identifies Willis Huntley, a CIA agent operating on the island with information on both his friends. Willis has been monitoring Hoyt Volker, a deranged South African slave trader who Vaas works for, selling those he captures into human slavery even after the ransoms have been paid, as well as engaging in drug trafficking. With Willis' help, Jason rescues Oliver before he can be sent to the slavers. Willis informs Jason that Keith has already been sold to Bambi "Buck" Hughes, who offers to give Keith back to Jason in exchange for finding the Silver Dragon, buried in ancient Chinese temples on the island. Jason eventually finds the knife, but when Buck reneges on the deal, Jason kills him with it. Jason brings Keith back to Dr. Earnhardt's, where Keith reveals that he saw Riley shot and killed. The others try to convince Jason to leave with them, but Jason, now set on the path of the warrior, vows revenge on Vaas and Hoyt. ...
