Trivia

Director Tapio Piirainen says that the most difficult location during the production was Kallbådan lighthouse at Porkkala, Finland. The crew spent three days and two nights in the cramped quarters which they shared with the insects. Despite the challenging conditions it was the lighthouse where the whole crew really felt the camaraderie. See more »

Robbers and Cops fight the system
15 February 2003 | by TaatilaSee all my reviews

The plot of Raid continues the one of the earlier TV-series: the system (politicians and corporate world) is corrupted, and the "little people" have to find alternative ways to deal with the situation.

The movie is strangely professionally done for a Finnish one. All the characters have appropriate actors, who are able to add some depth into their performance from the TV-series. However, as a stand-alone movie this could be a little hard to follow specially in the beginning, since the "sequel-feeling" is quite strong.
