Fresh Trailer For The Raid Hits
...And kicks, smashes, shoots...

We here at Empire Towers have been enthusiastically bigging up The Raid for a while now. Regular readers will know that we featured the movie heavily a couple of issues ago, and we still believe that its adrenaline-fuelled fight scenes are going to be the ones to beat this year. So if all the chatter has you itching to see some footage, take a gander at the trailer.

Directed by Gareth Evans, The Raid (which, in America at least, is now adding a subtitle: Redemption), finds SWAT team member Rama (Iko Uwais) and his crew trapped in an Indonesian tenement building run by a nasty mobster and crawling with hired thugs and killers. The mission quickly turns lethal and Rama must battle his way out through an army of goons.

Thankfully, Rama and some of the others are, to put it mildly, adept at laying the smack well and truly down, so the scene is set for a chaotic confrontation.

It’s out in the States on March 23, but the UK will have to cool its heels until May 18.
