The Raid Trailer

Oh this deserves a Must Watch no question! One of my favorite films coming out of TIFF, hell one of my favorite action films in years, was Gareth Evans' The Raid, an insanely badass Indonesian film starring Joe Taslim. As soon as my glowing review hit, they dropped a teaser trailer that many seemed to like. Now that Sony Classics has confirmed they're releasing this in US theaters next spring, Twitch has unveiled a full-length Indonesian trailer and holy sh*t you guys in for a treat. Thankfully the MPAA doesn't exist there, so this is a no-holds barred trailer showing about as much violent action as they can pack into two minutes.

Watch the latest full Indonesian trailer for Gareth Huw Evans' The Raid, embedded via Twitch:

In the heart of Jakarta lies a rundown apartment infested with druggies and drifters, ruled by a ruthless drug lord. The apartment block is considered untouchable by even the bravest of police—until one early morning when, cloaked under dawn's darkness, an elite SWAT team, led by Officer Rama (Iko Uwais), raids the peril-filled structure. As Rama's squad races between the maze of rooms and floors, encountering a barrage of gunfire, machetes, and ruthless hand-to-hand combat around every corner, the stakes get higher and higher. The Raid is written & directed by Welsh filmmaker Gareth Huw Evans, of Merantau previously. It just won the Midnight Audience Award at TIFF and will be released next spring by Sony Pictures Classics.

    I fucking love what east asian cinema has done with action over the last decade or so. It's telling that Indonesia can produce something as fresh and as exciting as this (disregarding the english director) while Hollywood's next big action set piece is what? The Expendables 2? The first one was utter garbage, so I'll stick with this thanks.

      Specifically, Southeast Asian cinema. First they gave us Ong-Bak, now this? Awesome.
      • It appears a group of writers and directors grew up watching the Hong Kong action movies of the 90's thinking "How could I make this more bat-shit-insane?" 😀
  • Fucking. Hell. YES!!!
  • so sick...
  • Except for a couple scenes near the end, this was the exact same trailer as the teaser, just with different music... still looks badass, just sayin.
