What’s it about?
A police special forces team gets stranded halfway up a building full of very hostile, desperate and well-armed people.
What did we think?
Anthony Sherratt says: The Raid is what Hollywood action movies want to be when they grow up. This is nearly the perfect action movie. Amazing fight scenes, great plot and genuine suspense punctuate a fast-flowing adventure. You’re never sure who’s expendable and the refusal to follow traditional narrative paths for the first half of the movie only add to the sense of chaos and panic. Truly wonderful cinema.
Simply a must for action fans.
