There’s a new red-band trailer for Indonesian martial arts flick The Raid: Redemption
The film had its world premiere at the recent Toronto Film Festival
and received rave reviews; with many claiming that it’s the best action flick to come out in years.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 run-down apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. 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, the building’s lights are cut and all the exits blocked. Stranded on the sixth floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city’s worst to survive their mission.
The film stars Iko Uwais, Doni Alamsyah, Joe Taslim, Yayan Ruhian and Ray Sahetapy.
Created by Welsh-born writer/director Gareth Evans and shot in Indonesia, The Raid doesn’t currently have a US release date, but it is set to be distributed by Sony Pictures ( acquired the film during the Cannes Film Festival in May) in 2012.
