This review is from: The Raid [DVD]  (DVD)
This ticks the majority of boxes for an action film and makes for exciting, if not always enjoyable, viewing. There is a lot to admire here and the action sequences make their Hollywood equivalents look tame in comparison. My only criticism, which boils down to personal taste to some extent, is that it is too violent. This might sound like an irrational criticism to level at this genre of film, and the level of brutality certainly adds to the tension, but for me this made it a difficult watch in places. This point notwithstanding, it remains an excellent action film that definitely doesn't pull any punches.
