...en underhållande och vansinnigt brutal actionfilm som tar genren till en ny nivå.
...is first and foremost an orgy of violence. Bullets, fists, and blades all fly, captured by Evans via a constantly moving, frequently gravity-defying camera.
The Raid is a skull-splinteringly violent, uncompromisingly intense and simply brilliant martial arts action movie in a nightmarish and claustrophobic setting.
If you like your action movies pounding, proficient, and as bloody as a Boxing Day sale at Selfridges, The Raid is something to behold.
...a corpse-fest that makes Quentin Tarantino look restrained.
