Product Description

Deep in the heart of one of Jakarta’s most deprived slums stands an impenetrable high-rise apartment block. To most it is 30 floors of Hell to be avoided at all costs but for many of the city's most dangerous killers and gangsters, including the area's most notorious crime lord, it is a fortress-like safe house protecting them from the law. Even for the bravest and most experienced police officers it is considered a no-go area.

In a desperate bid to flush these violent criminals and their leader from their haven once and for all, an elite SWAT team is tasked with infiltrating the building and raiding the apartments floor by floor, taking out anyone who stands in their way. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness, the SWAT members make their move and enter the block not realising that this is the easier part of the mission. Once inside, it soon becomes terrifyingly apparent that the real problem at hand is surviving long enough to be able to get out again.

  • Director's commentary (exclusive to UK)

From Amazon.co.uk

Superlatives may as well have been invented in the first place simply to describe the action sequences in the outstanding The Raid. It's hard to think of too many other films that have framed action cinema as ambitiously as director Gareth Evans and his team manage here, bringing the events of The Raid to life in exhilarating, breathless fashion.

The simple idea behind the film is this. A 30-storey tower block houses some of the most dangerous, nastiest criminals in Jakarta. Unsurprisingly most give it a wide berth, until an elite SWAT team embarks on a deadly mission to effectively clear the building out, a floor at a time. It's spoiling nothing to reveal that this plan has its flaws.

What makes The Raid so much more than this basic premise, though, is the incredible, stunning execution of it. This is a pure, relentless, expert action film, boasting incredible camera work and equally strong fighting. In fact, feel free to throw a few more superlatives at the movie. It absolutely deserves it.

So does the Blu-ray package, too. It's not just the quality of the picture and audio transfer that deserves praise here, as someone's really put their back into providing an excellent collection of special features. This particular edition includes a director's commentary that's exclusive to the British release, and there's a lot of behind the scenes material and promotional work to enjoy, too.

The Raid is, then, that rarest of things: a modern action cinema classic. Really. That it comes on such a strong Blu-ray only makes things better. --Jon Foster

I'm not what you would call a film buff and I can't do 'critical reviews' but if you want a great action film then get The Raid. It simply doesn't stop from beginning to end.
Anyone with a passing interest in hand-to-hand combat or martial arts will love this film for the speed of the fight choreography - and there's plenty of shooting scenes if that's your preference.
Don't worry about the subtitles, it's very easy to follow.

Who’d have thought that Indonisia would raise the bar when it came to action movies? ‘The Raid’ is hardly the most complicated film to review, but, if you’re into your gunplay and marshal-arts then you can’t go far wrong here. Oh, and you’ll need to be okay with subtitles.

Basically, the film is about a police raid on a towerblock containing some of the toughest (and deadly) criminals around. And – guess what – things don’t go too well for our boys in blue. It isn’t long before their bodies start piling up, leaving only our plucky new recruit (who just so happens to be damn good at kicking people) to survive and untangle the mess that’s quickly building up.

If you’re wondering what makes this so much better than all the other action movies out there – it’s the ‘look’ (well, for starters anyway). It has a very professional and gritty feel to it. The director (who, to my shame, I’ve never heard of) has obviously spent a lot of time framing each shot to give it quite a nice – almost ‘arty’ – feel. Then there are the fight scenes – they’re meticulously choreographed and, despite being technically as unrealistic as the next marshal arts film, they are really good fun to watch.

The actors are basically cast according to their looks. Bad people are ugly and good people have nice hair. However, at least everyone plays their part well and, even though all the talking is subtitled, it seems that everyone can actually act as well as is required for beating people to a pulp.

There are a few twists and turns in the plot – some you may see coming, others are less obvious. But I won’t go into them too much. All you need to know is that, if you’re okay with subtitles and love marshal arts or action films, then you’ll enjoy The Raid (and its sequel, if you’re curious about that!).

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 dangerous killers and gangsters.

A SWAT team infiltrate the building, under the cover of darkness, to remove its owner - a drug lord named Tama....

First let's get the criticism out of the way, the plot is paper thin. That's it, nothing else.

All the story is, is that there is a bunch of cops, and every level they go up in the block, gets a little bit more difficult and they become fewer, with a little bit of corruption thrown in for good measure.

The film starts off very tensely, and as soon as Tama calls Lock Down, the film never lets up until the final frame.

If you take Die Hard, and add a little Game of Death, you have The Raid.

The fighting in this, is beyond awesome, it's awe inspiring, and if you think you will get bored of fight after fight, the little dramatic scenes, pack just as much of a punch, that you really care for these people.

The writer/Director of this film clearly knows his action movies, as he has referenced nearly all the prolific action movie makers in one sense or another.

I thought before seeing this, it was way over-hyped, and i was wrong, it deserves it's reputation. Like a musical, the fighting is wonderful to look at as well as hear.

Easily the best action movie in the last fifteen years.

When I first loaded up the BluRay I was presented with two options, 1) British Cinema release or 2) Uncut Version. Not knowing what the differences were I went for the uncut version, but found that much of the gore was left to the imagination which suited me fine.

The next thing I found (and this shows my ignorance about the movie) is that I was presented with subtitles, but I soon realised that the action took over the need for detailed dialogue so it turned out not to be an issue for me.
Some of the comments on here mention about the action from start to finish and short of the first 10 minutes of the film the action doesn't really stop.

The stunts performed are some of the best I've seen in any a film and I bet there must of been some injuries in the filming as they are just so good. The fight scenes have excellent timing and whilst the odd fight seemed to go on well beyond any human could endure, they all seemed to keep me glued to the screen because of their variety. The camera work is good and right on top of the action.

If you're expecting to see a gun fest you will be disappointed as the use of guns becomes quickly taken over with martial arts moves which then become the mainstay of the film.
If you want to see an action movie with little dialogue, practically zero gung-ho and some polished martial arts choreography with a straightforward story from a genre that doesn't often hit the blockbuster spot these days then you could do worse than buy this movie.

On the strength of this first movie I will buy Raid2.
