I don’t really remember much about The Raid: Redemption other than the gory action/fight scenes.
There’s something about the fight scenes that are so satisfying in this movie that you don’t get in fight scenes from other action movies.
There was a basic plot to fill in the times when they weren’t fighting.
Overall, this movie will be above or below average depending on how much you like fight sequences in movies. For me, it’s above average since I like fight sequences.
But damn, is this movie gory. Not quite as cartoonishly gory as something like Ash vs. Evil Dead, but so close.
