When I am sick and tired of Indonesian Movie, which most of ‘em are unfunny, absolutely not horror low class porn-like movie, then this year, there is low-budget high-rating movie named The Raid (Redemption). I’m not kidding, IMDB rate it 8.4/10 (till today). Have you watch it?
Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building’s lights are cut and all the exits blocked. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city’s worst to survive their mission. Director Gareth Evans (Merantau) and rising martial arts star Iko Uwais reunite in this adrenaline-fueled action film.
This movie was viewed for the first time, before premiere world wide, April 2011 (if I’m not mistaken), and premiere March 2012 world-wide. Music by Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park) Feat.
