The RAID : Redemption or “Serbuan Maut” is an Indonesia martial arts action film directed by Gareth Evans and starring Iko Uwais which is set for a 2012 release. This is the second collaboration of Evans and Uwais after their first action film, “Merantau” released in 2009. Both films showcase the traditional Indonesian martial art – Pencak Silat.
The film is called The RAID : Redemption, and its premise is deliciously simple: 20 elite cops raid the building of a notorious crime lord and must search the 15-story structure for their target. But the crime lord knows the cops are there, and has plenty of nasty surprises in store for them.
The RAID : Redemption is one of the best action films in years. It’s the winner of best midnight madness film people’s choice award – Toronto Film Festival.
THE RAID is a production of Merantau Films in association with Celluloid Nightmares and XYZ Films. The film is a presentation of Sony Pictures Classics.
Rama (Iko Uwais), 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.
Here’s the official synopsis for The RAID : Redemption
As a rookie member of an elite special-forces team, Rama (Iko Uwais) is instructed to hang back during a covert mission involving the extraction of a brutal crime lord from a rundown fifteen-story apartment block. But when a spotter blows their cover, boss Tama (Ray Sahetaphy) offers lifelong sanctuary to every killer, rapist and thief in the building in exchange for their heads. Now Rama must stand in for the team’s fallen leader (Joe Taslim) and use every iota of his fighting strength – winding through every floor and every room to complete the mission and escape with his life.
The Raid: Redemption will be released in select theaters on March 23, 2012.
