The Raid

I was glad to finally catch this highly-praised Indonesian martial arts film, and was appropriately impressed. It’s a lean, to-the-point story about a police officer involved in a raid on a criminal stronghold, fighting his way through countless bad guys.

The fight scenes are brutal and excellent, with no idiotic shaky-cam or quick-cut gimmicks.

Recommended if you’re a fan of the genre.
