The Raid Movie Gets Trailered and it’s an Indonesian Masterpiece

I just watched a trailer for a film called The Raid from director Gareth Huw Evans, and I hope the action Gods bring this film to the US.  The trailer was good enough that I had to do some research on this unheard of film.  It looks like Sony owns the US rights to The Raid, but I couldn’t find any sort of release information for it.  I’d assume one day it’ll release in the US, and if it does it’ll put some of our recent action movies to shame.  Can anyone say rolling gun punch to the head?

At it’s most basic level The Raid is about an Indonesian SWAT team that gets caught up in a clusterf*ck, and their one bada*s member goes on a killing spree to free them from captivity.  All you need to do is watch the trailer below.  If you like martial arts movies, or action flicks in general I promise you’ll dig The Raid.  For more details on the film head on over here.  You’ve been hoping this thing has a US debut…
