Synopsis


The Raid: Redemption
A police raid on a Jakarta tenement building turns into a non-stop bloodbath when the drug dealer who owns it unleashes a furious barrage of fists, bullets, and blades, leaving the few remaining survivors of the invading SWAT team to fight their way up to the top and end the psychotic criminal's violent reign once and for all. Expectant father Rama (Iko Uwais) is an honest cop with deadeye aim and killer fighting skills. Following orders from his lieutenant -- a respected police veteran and mastermind of the ambitious raid -- Rama leads his heavily-armed team into the building silently and stealthily. Their mission is to take down Tama (Ray Sahetapy), a vicious criminal kingpin who uses the building as a shelter for both his many customers and his small army of loyal dealers and killers. Even the bravest cops in the city have never dared to breach Tama's fortress, and once the team's cover is blown, it quickly becomes apparent why; almost immediately, half of the team is shredded in a vicious barrage of gunfire and machetes. The exits have all been blocked, and with Tama's men closing in fast Rama's only hope is to keep going up and take out anyone who gets in his path. Meanwhile, Tama realizes that some of the cops have managed to survive the initial assault, so he unleashes two of his best men to stop them dead in their tracks. With his team cut down to a mere handful and his munitions exhausted, the determined cop vows to complete his mission by whatever means necessary. The Raid made its North American debut at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, where it quickly gained buzz thanks to an enthusiastic audience reception, while also garnering the Cadillac People's Choice Midnight Madness Award. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    This movie is EASILY one of the best action films I've ever seen. Anytime they start working on an American remake AND a sequel to a movie that hasn't even come out yet, that's a good sign it's a stellar piece of work. This angers me though because this film was given the shaft and consequently few people even know it exists! Long ago this movie premiered at several film festivals and won awards at each one. Then after many obstacles they decided to do a limited U.S. release this past March. Didn't know about it? That's because the release was SO limited that there were only a couple theaters in the country that showed it! Obviously it didn't stay out long, and I've had to wait over a year for it to finally be released to the public. Fortunately I found a way to see it before it came out on DVD and Blu-ray. Do yourself a favor and either go buy it right now, or spend a buck and Redbox it because it is WELL worth it. Make sure you get the unrated version so you can bask in all the bloody and violent glory. There are subtitles, but who cares! There are also gun fights, knife fights, machete fights, hand to hand fights and death scenes like you have never seen! Sure there are some minor nitpicks, things I would have changed, but all in all this is a MUST SEE if you are a true action fan.

    Best Action Film To Date!

    First note, I originally saw this in theatres as a limited release, and I have to say I've never experienced an atmosphere like that in my life. The sound, visual, and audience added to the spectacle called The Raid. Phenomenal to see in the theatre. I dont believe the excitement of watching it at home can compare, but that doesnt mean the movie isnt great at home. The story is not complicated, but effective enough to set the movie up. It gives you bread crumbs to think about why they are going to this drug compound, but doesnt ask you to think critically about details. It sets you up for action and once it starts, it never lets up. It is violent with out apologies, so if you are offended by it, then pass this up. If you can appreciate the art this movie paints with its choreography, you will lose your breath. I couldnt be more satisfied with a movie ever. Note: It defaults to English Dubbing. Go to audio settings and change it back to Indonesian 5.1 Master with English subtitles for the true voice work. English voice overs are horrible and detract from the experience.

    Excellent Fighting / Action Movie

    This movie must be one of the best action movies of this decade. The fighting sequences were amazingly performed (as the actors were actually TRAINED so they wouldn't use stunt doubles). The story is also great, and it builds some suspense. And we can see that the protagonist is actually "human" in this movie, not like modern action stars, who fall from a window and they just keep walking like everything is ok, but the protagonist in this movie is actually hurt, and it is good to see a character that expresses that feeling of vulnerability in the screen. If you are an action movie fan, and you are looking for an action movie that actually delivers amazing action, buy this, you won't regret it.

    If you're a fan of action movies and haven't seen this, call your doctor immediately because you have a sever case of what's-wrong-with-you-isitis. The Raid is hands-down one of the most invigorating and thrilling action movies to date and is worthy of multiple viewings. The plot is similar to that of another classic--Dredd--in that the protagonist must make his way up to the top of an apartment building to stop the bad guys. One fight in particular seemed to go on for about 6 hours with the baddie not slowing down, but all the fights are pretty brutal and cringe-inducing. Amazing choreography and a no-holds-barred approach to action filmmaking make this one to remember.

    A friend suggested this months and months ago...I was incredibly skeptical and thought "ehhhhhhh i don't know" and i postponed my viewing. I WAS SO VERY WRONG! This movie which comes both subbed and dubbed (but i highly suggest watching it with English subtitles; the English version is a bit cheesy and distracting) The story is simple but intense. the fight sequences are well choreographed and non-stop. The music was well paired- score done by Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park. It is a must watch if you are a fan of Martial Arts and AWESOME action!! Can't wait to see the sequel in March 2014

    Well if your ready for the most unrealistic martial arts movie of all time, watch this, which lets be serious is way more entertaining. Classic tale of a swat team raiding a building with less men than necessary and hi jinx and sue from there. Forget martial arts for a second, if the police had this level of conditioning in real life i would start to question weather or not they were actually the clones from judge dread. Fight scenes can go 10 or 15 minutes in this movie and its enthralling. Its a Must watch. Don't watch it dubbed or you'll wish you could jump off the building there raiding in the movie

    Rama is a cop. He's a great guy and very good at his job. He's also part of a SWAT team in Jakarta that's about to have a terrible day. They're tasked with bringing down a gang lord who runs his businesses out of an apartment complex. The entire building is overrun by the gang and it has been impossible to get them out. They're up against insurmountable odds yet the team fights to rid the building of the gang. Soon, their presence is noticed and they're hunted. Twists and turns abound, fight scenes are brutal and bloody, and it's just fun. If you're an action fan, you'll want this. Pick up the sequel, too. Trust me.

    I've just finished viewing the highly hyped The Raid Redemption,and I would say it's a highly hyped action picture which doesn't live up to the buzz. Lotsa blood, lotsa bullets, lotsa property damage, but not much story. All fine and dandy if you"re in the mood for this sorta thing, but it's all been done before and in a much grander style. WARNING Do not attempt to read subtitles under the influence of Wild Turkey, it will not end well. For the real deal in Asian cinema check out John Woo's The Killer or Hardboiled and give this a later look. Proceed with caution my friends.
