Movie Reminder: The Raid – Redemption

Do you remember my preview post regarding the flick THE RAID – Redemption?
If you haven`t seen this movie so far, go and get it ASAP!

I was not expecting too much, because I have seen so many genre movies like this in the past. Surprisingly, the movie turned out to be a hell of an action ride!

While flicks like The Transporter, The Expendables or Bourne Identity claim to be an action packed adventure, The Raid raises the bar so much, that such US blockbusters seem to be made for pensioners.

If you think about the best 5 ideas/scenes of a single good action movie, The Raid offers them combined in one 2-3 minutes shot and will be even better! Many scenes were so packed with crazy ideas, a wicked choreography and a fantastic camera that it`s hardly to withstand this kind of Asian Action Movie. It`s a dream to follow deluxe hand-to-hand combat without any shaky camera movements, trying to hide that actors are amateurs or to give life to rather boring sequences!

The story is a bit lame (and HK416s don`t any trademarks – hahaha…) but it doesn`t matter: this flick rocks big time (don`t get fooled by the crappy BluRay/ poster, etc. artwork)!

Watch out for the US Movie Industry planning an (99% unnecessary) remake, too! 😎
