Thriller Uwais Redemption
March 23, 2012 by staff
Thriller Uwais Redemption, A real kick. Running time: 101 minutes. In Indonesian, with English subtitles. Rated R (brutal, bloody violence). At the Lincoln Square, E-Walk, Union Square.
Small wonder there are already plans afoot for an American remake of “The Raid: Redemption,’’ Welsh-born director Gareth Evans’ eye-popping, jaw-dropping and bone-crunching action film about an Indonesian SWAT team that encounters far more resistance than it bargained for.
The action is brutal, bloody and virtually nonstop in this adrenaline-packed riff on “Assault on Precinct 13.’’
The setup is simple: An armed police squad — including some unfortunately undertrained recruits — is ordered to raid a building that’s long been the stronghold of the untouchable drug lord Tama (Ray Sahetapy).
Rama (left, Iko Uwais), the leader of an Indonesian SWAT team, must fight off a drug lord’s gang in this action flick par excellence.
Our hero Rama (charismatic Iko Uwais) is immediately suspicious that his men have gained entry to the building so easily.
And he quickly begins to have doubts about the corrupt veteran cop who’s leading the raid, Lt. Wahyu (Pierre Gruno).
Wahyu seems relatively unsurprised — and unconcerned — that Rama’s men immediately come under heavy machine-gun fire from Tama’s army of drug dealers, who extract heavy casualties.
There’s no time to worry about who set up the cops as Rama, Wahyu and a couple of other survivors fight their way, floor by floor, to Tama’s lair in the p**thouse.
It’s filled with monitors providing camera-eye views of every corner of the building, as well as helpfully equipped with a public-address system to issue threats.
