Escape Film Club
Country of Origin:
What's it about?
A S.W.A.T. team becomes trapped in a tenement run by a ruthless mobster and his army of killers and thugs.
Why do we love it?
The Raid is brutal and practical filmmaking at its best. A simple premise leaves the door open for imaginative direction and powerful choreography that is a sight to behold. The amount of skill and talent on screen keeps the energy high throughout as the only motive becomes to survive.
