The Raid Review

So here we go again with another review but this time it's The Raid.


It's been a short while so let's start with the storyline which as usual will be taken from IMDB.

In the Jakarta slums, a derelict apartment building has become a no-go area - even the police are unwilling to enter. It has become a safe-house for the most dangerous killers and gangsters. A SWAT team infiltrate the building, under the cover of darkness, to remove its owner - a notorious drug lord named Tama. Written by Kad

Now that we have a vague yet accurate storyline with no spoilers it's safe to say I won't ruin it for anyone. I'm going to cut straight to the point I absolutely love this film, it's beaten all of my expectations to say the least, I will even say it completely smashed them to nanocrystals leaving myself thinking I could watch that over and over again without getting bored of it.

The film itself is in Indonesian so if you have a short attention span or just into checking your mobile every 5 mins this movie isn't for you clearly.


The action was perfect, the acting was superb in short; I think I have a new favourite film for this year.
