The Raid: Redemption
Dir. Gareth Evans. 2011, 101 mins. With Iko Uwais, Joe Taslim, Donny Alamsyah. Deep in Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable, derelict apartment building that has become a safe house for the city’s most dangerous murderers, killers, and gangsters. An elite team is tasked with raiding the building in order to bring down the notorious crime lord Tama Riyadi. Thrillingly staged and stunningly violent, this pulse-pounding, nonstop action fest was a critical and box office hit.
