Its probably safe to say that Gareth Huw Evans is currently the greatest Welsh director of Indonesian action films.
Someday Everything Will Be Fine is the best album yet from Spider Bags.

Its exhausting, exhilarating, riveting stuff that fans of high octane filmmaking should not miss.
The film is a sort of high speed demolition derby except with human actors. It is 100 percent highly concentrated whoop ass, and it is sensational.

It seems the reason the trend never really caught fire is because a good grindhouse movie is hard to pull off.
Eventually its all too much, a blur of fists, blades and snapped bones that run together.Still, its a wild ride.
Compared with this movie, most recent Hollywood actioners might as well have been edited with a cheese grater.
The fighting seems the same, repeated endlessly and unimaginatively and not different from what scores of such films offer. Without humor or originali ..

I dont want to watch this movie every day for a year or anything, but it delivers an invigorating and entirely unpretentious legal high.
The action is brutal, bloody and virtually nonstop in this adrenaline packed riff on Assault on Precinct 13.
New York Post
The Raid is short, tough, and offers exactly the kind of pumped up kicks that die hard action fans adore.
The action is very well staged but its no substitute for genuine suspense.
Its a very introspective story for all of the characters, and accordingly the pace is fairly slow and the tone is generally quite subdued.
Mr Brown Movies
The Raid is a bone crunching, testosterone pumping freight train of destruction that barely lets you catch your breath once it gets going.
Action fans probably wont care about the thin plotting and characterization, and Evans stages a few genuinely exciting sequences.

A head spinning, heart pounding, 101 minute fusillade of punching, kicking, stabbing, slashing, cracking, crunching, gouting and spurting.
A surreal, gritty, ultra violent treat sure to have kung fu movie fans salivating and high kicking in the aisles.
Its all worked out with deadpan humor and hyper kinetic style, equal parts playfulness and terse, economical thrills.
For all its vigour, The Raid is another film that subscribes to fight choreography reminiscent of a video game aesthetic.
