Conclusion: If your into your asian action movies the likes of hardboiled, the killer, battle royale and the like then The Raid really is quite brilliantly done. This has some of the best fight scenes i have seen in a while and was certainly one of the best action films of 2012. If your a fan of asian action cinema this is a must own.
Summary: Everything about this movie is absolutely ridiculous, its repugnant, its senseless, its insane and its bloody good fun. A SWAT team are trapped in an apartment building run by mobsters with their one note henchmen launch to attack. This is a plot line where having fun envisioning it is inevitable. You can sense that director Gareth Evans was having one helluva time time directing this.
watch if you like violent martial art movies with knives
