Only one man versus an underworld army when a SWAT member finds himself alone in a tenement ran by a vicious mobster and his ruthless gang. This movie has mind blowing fighting that never gets old and the action was shot.

Essentially, the Raid is one long action sequence. Thankfully, that's where the film excels - as it's chock full of adrenaline-fueled, brutal, poetic fight sequences and action set pieces. When the film slows down, you can see how thin the plot (and characters) really are, but the film doesn't slow down often and, as pure martial arts entertainment, it's at the top of its game.

Delivers one astonishingly brutal fight after another. The punishment is relentless and the result is great entertainment. There are some truly awesome ass-kickings here. Now please excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor.

A no frills balls-to-the wall all out non-stop adrenaline rush. With staggering, heart racing, action sequences galore. Made with great style by Gareth Evans, and featuring a truly astounding physical performance by Iko Uwais. It's suspensful, graphically violent, and relentless. There may not be much in the character and story department, but the eye popping, crazy insane fluid action sequences are mindblowing and more than make up for it. One of the best action films to come out in a long long time, don't miss it! (R- intense sustained sequences of graphic bloody brutal violence, drug content, and language.)

I had big expectations for this movie, and it really disappointed. The action was just way too unbelievable. I mean, no one can sustain that many powerful hits and body slams. Plus, the plot wasn't all that great either.

Tama Riyandi is the boss of a building where criminals rule. Rama is part of a SWAT team that raids the location. Andi is the right hand man of Tama while mad dog is a skilled henchman. The light plot, lack of character development and lack of a better story hampers this reviewers rating. Its fast paced action, sensational realistic fighting and choreography is noteworthy. The violence is brutal and bullets were flying every where in almost every scene. The Raid: Redemption is definitely for fans of the crime action genre.
