Excerpt: you need to take this movie for what is is... a high adrenaline action movie... It is not the prettiest movie, and unfortunately many might avoid for this reason... I bought it because it was $9.99, and recommend it at a discounted rate... if you are on the fence, I would suggest renting before buying as this movie is not for everyone...
Excerpt: The official review on this website hits all the right points, stating all the strengths and weakness of ‘The Raid: Redemption’, so I'm not going to get down and dirty with a full-throttle review; I am going to keep this one simple as the movie. This has to be one of the most hyped movies of 2011, and now that I finally got to watch it, it is exactly what I had anticipated.
Excerpt: This movie had such potential.... The reviews I read seemed promising...so I was very hopeful. But damn! What a piece-o'-crap. The video quality sucks somethin' awful -- I'm not sure what happened here. Was this shot in 2011...or 1911? Was it shot with an IPhone? What the f---?! The audio quality -- do you even care? Skip it.
Excerpt: I have been a fan of martial arts movies since the sixties but I just don't understand why people like this movie. It is a low budget movie with a rudimentary plot that doesn't look very good on blu ray. More importantly for a martial arts movie the fighting scenes are not interesting. There is no outstanding talent like Bruce Lee, Tony Jaa, Jet Li or Jackie Chan. The fighting style is not interesting to watch.
Excerpt: Yes the PQ is awful, but this film has to be seen by action movie fans and martial arts movie fans, they won't be disappointed. Once it gets going its full on action with some really great fight scenes.
Excerpt: This is by far one of the worst Blu-rays I've ever seen. The video quality can pass as an average DVD movie. Blu-rays are sold at a premium price for premium quality, this is not premium quality. Not worth the purchase.
Excerpt: "The Raid: Redemption" is an action- lover's dream. The plot is very simple yet intriguing: A SWAT team takes it upon themselves to bring down a highly saught-after crime lord;the team enters a 30 floor apartment building in the middle of the ghetto where the crime lord is known to operate from. Once the SWAT team makes it to the fifth or sixth floor, the crime lord learns of their infiltration. The lights go out. The exits are blocked.
Excerpt: The Sony blu-ray is better than expected after reading some negative reviews. The dark scenes aren't that impressive but that's how they were in the theater. The bright scenes look really good. I dont remember anything looking too crisp in the theater as well. The audio, however, is amazing. The Indonesian DTS with english subs and Linkin park music are spot on, so this bluray is definitely worth getting.
