The Raid - Promotional Gallery

by Jennie Kermode

If martial arts movies make you think of shaky sets and shoddy production values, think again. The Raid is a high octane action thriller that delivers what the genre does best - stunning fight scenes and no-holds-barred violence. Rising star Iko Uwais plays the young policeman caught up in a seige situation who is determined to rescue his injured friend no matter what, but who will need all his wits just to stay alive. This gallery delivers a taster of what's in store.
