About the Movie
Deep in the heart of Jakarta's slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world's most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable. Cloaked 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. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, they find themselves stranded on the 6th floor with no way out. The unit must fight their way through the city's worst to survive their mission.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The movie is a gory free-for-all, a horror film dressed up as an action film, and it's as pure a shot of adrenaline as any Tarantino fan could wish for.
Fresh: As midnight-movie mash-ups go, it's pretty amazing.
Fresh: Because Welsh-born director Gareth Evans has an especially good understanding of how to choreograph and stage the fight scenes, this comes across as a viscerally enjoyable experience.
A MUST-SEE FOR ACTION LOVERS!
I'm so glad I got the chance to see this movie while it was still playing at my local theater because it's truly one of the best action films I've seen in a very long time. The fighting sequences are expertly choreographed and insanely realistic. You can actually feel the pain of the people getting their bones snapped like twigs. And the pacing and editing of the movie is simply phenomenal. Think of it as Tarantino on crack, or better yet, a game of Donkey Kong. An elite swat team has to fight their way through an apartment complex-turned-safe house full of Indonesia's most dangerous killers and gangsters in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. From start to finish, I was on the edge of my seat, awestruck by the brutality and bloodshed that emanated from every scene. In the end, you're not gonna walk away talking about how memorable the characters were or how well-developed the plot was. No, you're gonna walk away feeling entirely breathless, almost as if you just got smacked upside the head with a shot of pure adrenaline. This is the kind of movie that doesn't pull any punches. It goes right for the gore and only gets more deliriously wild and intense from there. If you're a huge fan of action flicks like me, I urge you to watch "The Raid: Redemption". Yes, it's a foreign film with English subtitles, but believe me, it's well worth seeing. It's a slick, deranged, no-holds-barred masterpiece that'll knock your socks off and leave you speechless.
Great action and fight scenes are awesome!
This was very good as far as the action scenes go the storyline did need a lot of work and for anybody thinking this movie was in english think again but it did have the English Lang opt but was weird to listen to it!
