112- The Raid: Redemption [7.0]

A SWAT team becomes trapped in a tenement run by a ruthless mobster and his army of killers and thugs.

There were a handful of times throughout The Raid: Redemption that I found myself yelling “oh shit!” in the theater along with everyone around me. The Raid features relentless action as well as some of the most technically impressive fight sequences I’ve seen placed on film. Thankfully, director Gareth Evans has a good grasp on tension, and so the scenes in which action is absent are no bore whatsoever.
