Raid was very popular tv-serie in Finland couple of years ago. It was a good story of dirty political deals including many human casualties. There were two kind of main characters. Polices and villains. Police leading characters investigate a case that was too hot to handle. Even they own superiors constantly try to brake the investigations and many finish leading politics were involved. At the same time professional hitman called Raid try to investigate the same thing for his own reasons. These both sides had very different working ways, but they had a mutual goal, so policemen try to look in a different way as much as they can when Raid handle a situation his way.
Movie Raid is a sequel to this tv-serie. Like tv-serie it is very comical and it has superior dialogs and absolutely not any boring characters.
Film is very good and surely worth of watching. There was a certain feeling that too many original tv-serie characters was put in the movie just because they are fun comical sidekicks, but that is the most common problem of all sequels.
