TIFF 2011: Ricky D’s 10 Alternative Picks #4: ‘Trailer for ‘The Raid’
Next on the list is the Indonesia action flick The Raid. There might not be any paparazzi hanging around outside the Ryerson theatre waiting for celebrities during the screening, but The Raid is a must see for genre fans. The Raid had everyone raving after it’s World Premiere this past Thursday night at the Toronto Film Festival. Watch the trailer below which is absolutely stellar with action from wall-to-wall.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film :
In the heart of Jakarta lies a rundown apart¬ment infested with druggies and drifters. It’s ruled by a ruthless drug lord who uses the tenement to shelter his junkie customers, pushers, enforcers and brutal killers. The apartment block is considered untouch¬able by even the bravest of police—until one early morning when, cloaked under dawn’s dark¬ness, an elite SWAT team, led by officer Rama (Uwais), raids the peril-filled structure. As Rama’s squad races between the maze of rooms and floors, encountering a barrage of gunfire, machetes, and ruthless hand-to-hand combat around every corner, the stakes get higher and higher building to an explosive crescendo and an ultimate battle.
