The brand-new Indonesian genre madhouse that’s taken Asian audiences by storm, and that will rip your face off with its ultra-gory, uber-intense and unbelievably relentless action blitz!  Special Forces member Rama arrives with his team at a huge decrepit safe house, on a secret mission to remove its notorious drug lord owner.  When the mission goes horribly awry, the building’s hordes of criminal underworld tenants converge to wipe out Rama & Co., forcing the cops to fight their way through every floor and every room in increasingly insane and visceral ways using the art of Silat (the ancient Indonesian combat system that will quickly become your new favorite kind of ass-kicking!)  Combining the pulse-pounding siege action of Assault On Precinct 13, the non-stop flowing kineticism of a dystopian shoot-em-up video game and the most super-skillful bash-the-teeth-right-outta-your-head martial arts madness you’ve ever seen, The Raid kicked our brains in when we caught it at Sundance just a few weeks ago, and is the best goddamned action movie you’ve seen IN YEARS. Director Gareth Evans will be here for a Q&A after the film — and join us for an afterparty on the Cinefamily back patio after the screening!
Dir. Gareth Huw Evans, 2011, 100 min.
