Movies in Review: "The Raid: Redemption"
Movies like these are usually shown in the smaller theatres, and the show I viewed was sold out. Honestly when I read the write-up on this film, it didn't really appeal to me. It was an oddly exceptional rating from a critic that pushed me into the theatre to see what it was about. This movie is a martial art's fanatics dream. The fight sequences were amazing! This movie is packed with so many fight sequences, you will find yourself exhausted by the time the credits start rolling. You could tell the audience was into it because there were plenty of Oooohhh and Aaaaahs and Wow's, as well as other outbursts you can't contain after seeing an awesome hit.
Let me just warn you there are subtitles, but the great thing about this is that you won't even notice. There is hardly any speaking, just enough to give you an idea of whats happening and why. With movies like these, dialogue just takes away from what people actually want to see...ACTION!!! This movie is jam packed full of excitement. Not to say women won't be able to appreciate it, but this has testosterone written all over it. If its in your area men you have to check it out ASAP!...B+
