Film: The Raid Click for more info

First, what The Raid isn't. It's not deep. It's not intelligent. It's not got any kind of decent plot or story. It has no decent characters.

With that out of the way we can talk about what The Raid is. It's full of action. It's lightning quick. It's engaging. It's awesomely violent. And it's hella fun.

Although my high hopes for The Raid were dashed during the first 30 minutes, I did enjoy the film a lot. It wasn't exceptional and most certainly is not going to be a classic, but it does manage to hark back to an era when choreographed fighting scenes were awesome to watch.

Recommended, and definitely something I will have to catch again on DVD. In slow motion, perhaps.
