The Raid: Redemption (2012) Review

By Paco McCullough

"Holy Shit" "Oh my God!" "Fuck, that was awesome!" are just a handful
of phrases I uttered over the course of The Raid: Redemption's hour
and a half running time. Featuring breathtaking stunts and
choreography, an excellent color pallet, great action direction, and a
surprisingly tolerable score by Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, The Raid:
Redemption is the greatest action film of this generation. Forget Ong
Bak, forget Ip Man- this is the film that should come to exemplify the
resurgence of Asian martial arts films.
