The Raid: Redemption (Serbuan maut)This sensational genre movie is destined to be the Indonesian action thriller of the year. A police SWAT team storms a housing project ruled by gangsters and inhabited by machete-wielding lowlifes, but the mission has been leaked, the tables are turned, and a dwindling band of elite fighters find themselves massively outnumbered in a lethal game of cat and mouse. What ensues is a relentless and savage succession of close-quarters shoot-outs and punishing martial-arts combat sequences, with each jaw-dropping smackdown unbelievably topping the previous one. This film is wild! A Sony Pictures Classics release.
