The Raid: Redemption is coming to bluray unrated on August 14th

Jul. 10, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Gareth Evans THE RAID: REDEMPTION is one of those movies that you almost think was based on a video game. The fact that the story is set in a building that needs to be ascended to defeat the bad guys sounds like an old 8-bit Nintendo game come to life. In reality, THE RAID: REDEMPTION is one of those rare action movies that reinvigorates a genre that tends to thrive on repeating the same formula over and over again.

If you didn't get a chance to see THE RAID: REDEMPTION in theaters, then mark your calendars for August 14th when the movie hits DVD and BluRay in full unrated glory.

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 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.

Here are the bonus features on the BluRay/DVD:

Is this the best cover art they could come up with? It looks like a shitty DTV movie.

Still buying it though. The movie is sick.

I think I seriously might be one just a handful of people who absolutely loathed this film. And I usually love these types of films.

First off, it's called The Raid, but the raid is over after about 30 minutes. The CGI blood, stabbings and gun shot wounds are atrocious, and so are the muzzle flashes which seem to be done after watching a YouTube DIY video. The fight choreography is slow and unimpressive compared to masterpieces like Ong Bak and Chocolate. And don't even get me started on the
