(This may be a passing fancy.) The Raid is a well made action movie made on a low budget in Jakarta, Indonesia. It features an Indonesian cast and was directed by Gareth Evans, an Englishman. I am not going to say that The Raid is a great film, but if you are a fan of martial arts films it is well worth a look. Why did I see this film? Well, this trailer just blew me away. It is a kinetic explosion of energy, 2 minutes of unrelenting fight scenes set to an awesome piece of music by Mike Shinoda, who did the soundtrack for the film. Shinoda is a member of the rock group Linkin Park. BETTER SKIP THIS IF YOU ARE TURNED OFF BY BALLETIC CINEMATIC VIOLENCE!
