Lee Hardcastle’s The Raid holds nothing back as trained SWAT cats force their way into a building occupied by a criminal gang. They’re adorable, in a bloodthirsty way. Content warning: violence and gore.
Check out the super badass red band trailer for The Raid
The tagline for The Raid is “One crime boss, 20 elite cops, 30 floors of hell”.
Bloody Disgusting says “The Raid does everything right, and is so incredibly self-aware in its awesomeness that I envision the filmmakers jacking off to their own movie (I would too). If you’re expecting a kick to the head, instead you should probably expect 42 kicks to the teeth, a roundhouse, 362 punches to the ribs and then two broken legs. The Raid is ultra-cinema, the highest octane of energy you’ll ever see on the big screen. It’s a rush that’s only side effect is withdrawal – and the only fix is to see it again.”
The film is out in Indonesia, but there’s no North American release set as of yet.
