The Raid: Redemption

I've been excited to see The Raid: Redemption since I heard about it during the Toronto Film Festival.  It unexpectedly showed up this weekend in my local theater, so I made sure to go out right away to see it.

It's an Indonesian action film about an elite SWAT squad raiding a high-rise run by a crime lord.  As promised, it is nearly non-stop action, whether it be shooting, karate, or machete-wielding.  And Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park did the score, so this LP fangirl was excited about that.  It's a kickass score, continuing the new tradition of awesome electronic musicians making awesome scores for awesome movies. 

Definitely worth watching if you want a kickass action film!!
