While other horror websites take jabs at us for covering Gareth Evans’ The Raid, the fact of the matter is that none of them have seen the movie. Not only is the movie jam-packed with face-stomping action, but it’s nothing short of bloody and disgusting. We reserve the right to cover this insanely gory foreign film that premiered last September at TIFF (read our review), and you’ll eventually thank us for it.
In theaters March 23, Sony Pictures Classics has released the first oficial theatrical trailer for the thriller now titled The Raid: Redemption . Check it below.
“Rama, a member of a special forces team, arrives at a rundown apartment block with a mission to remove its owner, a notorious drug lord. The building has become a sanctuary to killers, gangs, rapists and thieves seeking accommodation in the one place they know they cannot be touched by the police. When a spotter blows their cover, Rama and his team must fight their way through every floor and every room not just to complete their mission but to survive their bloody ordeal.” Watch a fight scene clip here.
