Film Review: The Raid (2011) by Gareth Evans

Martial art films are an entertaining genre. Usually, they are simple plot wise, but pulling off a good martial art film is a big challenge; pulling off a great one, a monumental task. “The Raid” is one such great movie. Released on 23rd March 2012, and directed by Gareth Evans, this is an action packed movie, which leaves you at the edge of your seat all along the way.

The story revolves around Rama (played by Iko Uwais), who is part of a 20 man elite police squad. They have a mission to raid a tenement in Jakarta’s slums. The building is run by a crime lord, Tama Riyadi (played by Ray Sahetapy), who rents rooms there to criminals looking for refuge. Tama has two lieutenants, Andi (played by Donny Alamsyah) and Mad Dog (played by Yayan Ruhian). To add to the complexity of the situation, Andi is Rama’s estranged brother.
