Everyone has been saying over and over this is one of the best action movies in years, get a glimpse at how they made it below.

You can also watch the recently released official US trailer for The Raid: Redemption in full HD right here.

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. Sony Pictures Classics will finally be releasing The Raid: Redemption starting on March 23rd this spring.
