If you enjoy movies with non-stop action, then The Raid is for you.
Written and directed by Welsh director Gareth Evans (Merantu), The Raid is an Indonesian action movie which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday and was already hailed as "the best action film I've seen in years" by SlashFilm while FirstShowing said that The Raid "is one of those amazing action films from abroad that those lucky enough to hear about will discover themselves, then will go back and introduce it to all of their friends, boasting about how they found this awesome movie."
The Raid follows a 20-man elite SWAT team as they raid (ahem) a rundown tenement building run by a crime lord named Tama (Ray Sahetapy). Once Tama discovers the team is in the building, however, he puts a bounty on the team, who must now fight their way out of the apartment compound. watch the trailer >> Posted 09.10.11 by Ryan
