First red band trailer for The Raid is ass-kickingly awesome!

09.12.2011

Director Gareth Evans (MERENTAU) is about to unleash what's already being touted as the best action movie of 2011 with THE RAID, an Indonesian film that's been blowing everyone away at the Toronto International Film Festival. Hopefully it'll be landing on our shores very, very soon. Goddamn!

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. Starring Indonesian martial arts sensation Iko Uwais.

MERANTAU was the tits. This looks to be even better. Also that's how you make a f'ing trailer for an action movie. No words, just badass music and badass action. CAN'T WAIT!

Awesome but...

This looks awesome, and after seeing some other foreign action films this and last year that blew pretty much every Western action film away in the past 15 years, can't wait to check this out. My only concern is that music... can't we just get a kickass orchestra? Why do we need new music? I'd much rather take the old score probably, it's like changing the music in I Saw The Devil or The Man From Nowhere to a rock/electronica sound :/
