A triumph of fight choreography, spatial relations and precious little else.

Hollywood is particularly unsuited to producing sensation cinema these days.

My only complaint about The Raid is that it ended.

You really have an obligation to see it to witness what has a legitimate claim of being the best action film of all time.

Gareth Huw Evans doesn't swipe plot points as much as organically build a taut, expertly choreographed heir to urban mayhem fantasies

Action so relentless, the stuntmen probably asked for stuntmen.

The movie "Dredd 3D" should have been.

Hyped as one of the most thrilling and enjoyable action movies to come along in the last decade, this is one of the rare occasions where the hype is actually well deserved.

The Raid: Redemption is simply the best action movie of the last decade. Director Gareth Evans films the combat with a trained eye to maximize the intensity and entertainment.

"The Raid: Redemption" will be most successful for people with A.D.D. or just generally short attention spans.

This adrenaline-fuelled spectacle of flying fists, whirling kicks and spurting blood will leave you breathless, exhilarated and shouting for more.

An electrifyingly kinetic and insanely frenetic action flick stacked with a level of violence at which the makers of Grand Theft Auto would marvel.

"Clever" may not be the right word for The Raid: Redemption, but it's certainly economical, compact, and potent.

The rawest and most intense action spectacle we've seen from any country in years, but it fails to grasp the importance of balancing badassery with at least a little maturity.

An unstoppable wrecking ball of an action film that signals the action genre is alive and well...

The Raid: Redemption boasts an outstanding showcase of martial arts and stuntwork. The story might be thin, and the fighting a little repetitive, but The Raid is a knockout low-budget actioner.

[T]his is undeniably kinetic and definitely the work of a filmmaker with incredible action chops.

Film critics across the world have been raving about The Raid but are they raving mad? It may be visually dazzling but ultimately is more like a bloodthirsty video game than a great movie.

That the action is vivid and for the most part, unrelenting, is indisputable, but the brain, consistently pummelled as it witnesses bloody orgy after bloody orgy, is undernourished in all other respects.

An action movie so relentlessly exciting and brutal that watching it will leave you feeling black-and-blue and breathless.
