The Raid: Redemption

2011

-

A SWAT team must capture a drug kingpin who lives in an apartment tower’s penthouse suite. Each floor in the building is filled with henchmen ready to pick them off. Gareth Evans’ instant classic uses a video game boss-level concept as an excuse to throw everything at his heroes — Gun play! Hand-to-hand combat! Machetes, axes, and knife fights, oh my! — all delivered at the most frantic, kinetic pace imaginable.
