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.
The Raid is, then, that rarest of things: a modern action cinema classic. --Jon Foster
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.
