    Okay I did a search, and seriously...no thread?

    If you haven't heard of this movie...

    The Raid : Redemption - Official Trailer [HD] - YouTube

    [HD] The Raid - Restricted Red Band Trailer 1080p - YouTube

    I've been eagerly anticipating this and it does not disappoint one iota. Very lean in terms of plot and exposition (basically the first *maybe* ten minutes--the rest is devoted to the shit going down), yet the characters are fleshed out enough for you to be invested in them (both good and bad guys).

    As for the action itself, well, the above trailers are the thousand words.

    Since it's only in limited release, if you're lucky enough to be near a theater showing it...GO. NOW.

    Saw this awhile back when it first came out, glad to see it in America. It's insanely badass.

    Yep...went and saw a midnight release for this. Was in it for the action which did not disappoint at all.

    Yeah, I never saw the original release, but I understand Mike Shinoda redid the score for the U.S. version.

    And I initially thought the addition of the subtitle, "Redemption" was stupid but now I see how it could be relevant to the film (I still just call it "The Raid" though).

    Man, I can't help but think that both Batman and Bane would get their asses handed to them singlehandedly by Mad Dog...a 5'3" 130-pound-soaking-wet Indonesian wrecking machine (yes, he kick's that much ass).
