Is there such a thing as too much action? Well, watch ďThe Raid: RedemptionĒ and find out!
The Indonesian import has been getting buzz as an epic action-tacular, and, boy, itís almost exhausting.
Itís got a plot right out of a video game. A team of police officers are raiding an apartment high-rise where a crime boss is acting as landlord for any undesirables looking for a place to hide from the authorities.
So basically itís good guys fighting through scores of bad guys. Yep, thatíll do.
ďRaidĒ is beyond action-packed Ö youíve got epic gun battles AND epic martial arts battles. Thereís even a solid story with some doozy twists.
But the buzz that itís one of the best action flicks in decades is a bit misplaced. Awesome? Yep. But all of that action tends to blur after a while.
No doubt itíll get your blood pumping, though. Action junkies, take note.
