Win cool The Raid movie merchandise

The Raid

Preview by Jack Foley

THE Raid – ‘The Action Movie of the Year’ (The Guardian Guide) – breaks out across over 290 cinemas on May 18, starring martial arts sensation Iko Uwais as he takes on a tower block rammed with bad guys and decimates them in a style that is nothing short of breath-taking.

Directed by Gareth Huw Evans, The Raid is one of the most exciting action films you’re ever likely to see.

Shot in Indonesia, the film picks up as an elite unit of cops, including one named Rama (Iko Uwais), enter a rundown, 15-storey apartment block with the intention of taking down its brutal resident crime lord, Tama (Ray Sahetaphy), only to find their cover quickly blown.

Trapped inside, and with Tama offering free sanctuary to all of the block’s criminal inhabitants in exchange for their heads, Rama and company are forced to fight their way back out while trying to complete their mission and get to grips with the real agenda behind their mission.
