The Raid (2011)

Directed by
Gareth Evans

Indonesia-based Welsh director Gareth Evans' highly praised, relentlessly violent, adrenaline-rush of an action movie. From the start it's clear it won't be an easy ride for the Indonesian special forces team. En route to Jakarta's worst neighbourhood they receive their mission brief: to put an end to crime lord Tama's operations. But he lives on the top floor of a 15-storey tower block and each level below him is packed with ferociously violent criminals who are martial arts experts, armed to the teeth and fiercely loyal. And because their mission is genuinely secret, the Swat team have absolutely no back-up. From the moment they enter the dingy, soaring edifice it's a non-stop carnival of exquisitely raucous, superbly choreographed brutal action, which feels like a collision between a John Woo movie and a multi-level shoot-'em-up video game. Can the state's men possibly survive the odds stacked against them? Also starring Iko Uwais and Joe Taslim.
