Exclusive: Check the brutal action in this red band clip from The Raid!

Action-thriller THE RAID played to packed houses at the Toronto Film Festival and promptly took those houses and blew the roofs off of them, winning the Midnight Madness award. Sony Pictures Classics quickly snatched up the rights and will unleash the US premiere at the Sundance Film Festival tonight. To give you a sense of what you're in for and to celebrate the premiere, we're happy to have an exclusive red-band clip from the film.

The clip below is only :45 sample of what you can expect from the film. And even in this :45, there's a lot of "oh shit!" moments. If you haven't heard of the film before now, here's a little backstory:

As a rookie member of an elite special-forces team, Rama (Iko Uwais) is instructed to hang back during a covert mission involving the extraction of a brutal crime lord from a rundown fifteen-story apartment block. But when a spotter blows their cover, boss Tama (Ray Sahetaphy) offers lifelong sanctuary to every killer, rapist and thief in the building in exchange for their heads. Now Rama must stand in for the team’s fallen leader (Joe Taslim) and use every iota of his fighting strength – winding through every floor and every room to complete the mission and escape with his life.

Sony-based Screen Gems is remaking the film but you're gonna want to get in on the ground floor and see the ass-kicking original. The film is set to hit theaters near you this spring so stay tuned for more. Check out the exclusive clip below!
