Product Description

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.

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

Ok, bold title and a few caveats. The plot is SWAT team tries to get a drug baron in a block of flats...and that's it for plot and locations. The dialogue is in Indonesian so the translation may lose some nuance (but I doubt it) and overall it's every action cliche rolled into one script.

So why the title and 5 stars? Because everything is executed perfectly. The sweaty tension raising intro, the bombastic gunfights and most of all the incredibly brutal, fast and efficient martial arts.

I saw this on a Wednesday evening in a half full cinema- and yet there were spontaneous rounds of applause and cries of "oh god!" as you saw audacious action scene after visceral fistfight. It is a constant thrill with enough "plot" to allow you to recover before the next shot of adrenaline cinema kicks in. It reminds Hollywood it's not about money or how much blows up but how it blows up and two men fighting in a kitchen can be more exciting than watching a city being trashed by giant robots.

A must see for any fan of action movies.

As soon as I saw the red-band trailer, I knew I had to see this movie, and got tickets for the first ever UK screening at Glasgow FrightFest. It was the last film of the day - so every seat in the cinema was already occupied by film fans and journalists who'd been sitting there all day, watching film after film. We squeezed into the last remaining seats in the back row, expecting the audience to be too tired to respond enthusiastically to a late-night action movie.

We couldn't have been more wrong.

THE RAID got half a dozen spontaneous rounds of applause, and a standing ovation at the end. Well deserved.

I've now seen it four times on the big screen, and bought the DVD on the day of release.

THE RAID, is a smart, lean, tightly-controlled thrill machine, perfectly calibrated to create maximum tension and adrenaline, without any of the dumbed-down compromises we've been conditioned to expect from Hollywood. This is, quite simply, the kind of action movie they just don't make any more. Imagine early-80s John Carpenter tension, fused with mid-80s John Woo Hong Kong action (but without Woo's cheesiness), and you're in the right ballpark. It's fast, dense, gritty, uncompromising, and utterly gripping, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with such action classics as DIE HARD, THE TERMINATOR, ALIENS and HARD BOILED.

Director Gareth Evans is going to be a major force in Hollywood. Get in on the ground floor.

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.

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.

Despite its sucdess I find this first chapter a minor one if compared to the fantastic sequel. Here you see incredible gunfights and martial arts scenes, but it is an infinite sequence of action scenes uo to the end, very rough, spectacular and realistic, but with no sense of drama, no characters, no story and no depth and insight like The Raid 2 which, to me, has even better and great action scenes than this. That is the real masterpiece that you should really watch

Not being a martial arts fan, I thought this film would not be for me. Coupled with the fact it was subtitled, and the storyline was pretty basic, I had the feeling I would be turning off pretty quickly, but you know what .......this was pretty well done, and I enjoyed it. The action was pretty much non stop, violence was pretty full on, there were moments of extreme tension, and for the martial arts buffs there were loads of preposterous scenes. It was subtitled, but really easy to follow. Not exactly my type of movie, but for its type, this was extremely well done.

I feel sorry for those people who purchased this DVD thinking they'd get a serious, in-depth plot, and especially sorry for people who didn't realise that the film is in a foreign language, and that you might need to use subtitle or dubbed options. I always opt for subtitles, as the dubbed voices rarely have the same impact or emotion as the original.
The film never advertised itself in the above way, so maybe you should read up on a film in future, unless you go out of your way to buy films to moan about them. And funnily enough, it's an Indonesian film, set in Jakarta, so why do you think it would/should be in English?

This is exactly what it said on the tin. A non-stop action movie.

Not something to watch with the kids, or those of a gentle disposition, but if you want constant fighting, using a variety of weapons, including bare hands, then this is the film for you.
I watched it in both directions on a flight to/from Vegas, then came home and bought the DVD to watch again.
