Trivia

Lighting in this film was very difficult, since in several sequences, the camera turns 180 degrees around and moves around the room. To supplement this, production crews used lights on long poles and constantly moved with the camera. See more »

Goofs

When Rama's face is cut by a machete when hiding within an apartment's wall, it leaves a deep, ragged and swollen wound. However, when he exits the apartment his wound is suddenly much neater and more superficial. See more »

OK. So there's not that much of a storyline to this movie. It's pretty much just 90 minutes of non-stop action, however....

The characters are sufficiently developed with a couple of twists in the story to keep it interesting....

But let's keep it real -- you're watching this movie because it's a simple, straight-forward, feast of totally immense and very well-made ACTION that's so good that you just don't want this movie to end. I could hardly believe I'd just been sitting in a cinema for 2 hours when this movie ended.

'The Raid' is by far one of, if not THE best action movies I have ever seen and is a definite MUST for anyone's movie collection!
