Starring: Iko Uwais | Joe Taslim | Donny Alamsyah | Yayan Rhian
Director: Gareth Evans
Screenplay: Gareth Evans
Producer: Ario Sagantoro
THEY SAY: “Gareth Evans, Iko Uwais, and Ruhian took all the time they needed to get it right (six months of rehearsal and three months of shooting). Their continuity of work has enabled them to build a level of trust that lets them push their brand of cinematic physicality further forward. The result isn’t a guilty pleasure, or a B-list action movie, but a purely cinematic experience that is, in every sense, breathless.” – Grady Hendrix, Film Comment, 2012
WE SAY: ,The Raid expertly combines stunning martial arts and stunt sequences with brutal combat and a tightly wound plot that ratchets up the tension with each passing minute – try and remember to breathe while you’re watching it.
