Extreme Martial Arts Movie Madness Double Feature 2 MOVIES FOR THE PRICE OF 1

THE RAID: REDEMPTION action
2011 / Indonesia, US, France / Indonesian with English subtitles / 101 minutes / Format: DCP
Director: Gareth Evans Cast: Iko Uwais, Ray Sahetapy, Joe Taslim, Yayan Ruhian Print Source: Sony Pictures

One of the most audaciously inventive action movies of the century, Gareth Evans’ The Raid: Redemption introduced much of the world to the Indonesian martial art pencak silat. Starring Iko Uwais as Rama in a breakout performance, the film ups the ante on the standard “two men enter, one man leaves” formula by starting off with a SWAT team on a mission to take down crime boss Tama from his hi-tech fortress in the top floor penthouse of a squalid Jakarta tenement building/underworld safe house. Gary Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times says, “The Raid: Redemption is a slam-bang, knock-your-socks-off action bonanza with some of the most peerlessly shot, performed, and choreographed fight sequences you’re likely to see on screen. …Gareth Evans…proves a visionary force, grabbing hold of the audience with a barrage of virtuoso set pieces that are both hide-your-eyes violent and mindbogglingly stunning.”

THE RAID 2
action 2014 / Indonesia, US / Indonesian, Japanese, English, Arabic with English subtitles / 150 minutes / Format: DCP Director: Gareth Evans Cast: Iko Uwais, Arifin Putra, Yayan Ruhian Print Source: Sony Pictures Classics

“Second verse, same as the first, a little bit louder and a whole lot worse!”—The Raid 2 takes all of the great elements of the first film to new extremes in the most awesome way! Picking up almost immediately where the first film ended, our hero Rama (Iko Uwais), still healing from the first film, is informed of his new assignment—as a reward for the intelligence and skill he displayed in the original raid, he now is ordered to go deep undercover in order to help take down the puppet masters behind Jakarta’s criminal class. With a cast of colorful characters (including Hammer Girl and Baseball Bat Guy) and an entire city in which to stage the set-piece fight sequences, director Gareth Evans shows that The Raid: Redemption was merely a warm-up exercise.
