The world's most dangerous killers and mobsters reside in the heart of Jakarta's slums. The apartment block is off limits to police officers. Under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. When a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and the news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building's lights are cut and all the exits are blocked. The unit was trapped on the sixth floor and had to fight their way through the worst of the city to survive. Iko Uwais is a martial artist from Indonesia.
This Movie Is About.
The Raid (Indonesian: Serbuan maut, lit. 'The Deadly Raid') is a 2011 Indonesian action-thriller written, directed and edited by Gareth Evans. The film stars Iko Uwais, who previously worked with Evans in another action film, Merantau, released in 2009. In the film, an elite squad is tasked to infiltrate a high-rise building – run by a ruthless drug lord – located in the slums of Jakarta; among them is Rama (played by Uwais), a rookie member of the team.After its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), The Raid received positive reviews from critics. The name of the film was changed to The Raid: Redemption in the United States as distributor Sony Pictures Classics could not secure the rights to the title; it also allowed Evans to plan out future titles in the series. The US release of the film features a film score composed by Mike Shinoda and Joseph Trapanese. It was released in the United States on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on 14 August 2012.A sequel, The Raid 2, was released in 2014. Both films showcase the traditional Indonesian martial art of Pencak Silat, with fight choreography led by Uwais and Yayan Ruhian. A third film was considered but Evans decided not to go forward with the project.
