The Raid is a brutal and brilliant martial arts/action film that announces the arrival of Welsh director Gareth Evans, plus the phenomenal talents of star Iko Uwais and his Indonesian martial art, Pencak Silat. Rama (Uwais) is a member of an elite special-forces team, who are on a covert mission involving the extraction of a brutal crime lord, Tama, from a rundown fifteen-story tower block in Jakarta. When a spotter blows the Police’s cover, Rama must fight his way, floor by floor, to the top of the building in his own unique style.

‘The best action movie of the year’. Simon Crook, Empire *****
