For now, count 'The Raid' alongside the likes of Peter Jackson's 'Bad Taste' or Guillermo del Toro's 'Mimic': a talented young filmmaker flexing his muscles, stating his intent, and promising better things in the future.

The movie gets a little slow when it settles down for some routine dialogue or plot development, but it's never more than a couple minutes before break time is over and it's back to the insane fighting stunts.

"The Raid: Redemption" is built on shaky and blood-soaked ground, but if towering technique is all you want from an action movie, then yippee-ki-yay.

Evans doesn't bother much with story or character development, instead making his film a kind of brutal ballet.

The movie is a gory free-for-all, a horror film dressed up as an action film, and it's as pure a shot of adrenaline as any Tarantino fan could wish for.

Because Welsh-born director Gareth Evans has an especially good understanding of how to choreograph and stage the fight scenes, this comes across as a viscerally enjoyable experience.

The film is a sort of high-speed demolition derby except with human actors. It is 100 percent highly concentrated whoop-ass, and it is sensational.

Extraordinary stunt and fight work and nonstop excitement, but a warning to those who are at all squeamish: this may be the most violent movie I've ever seen.

The entire thing is so vague, at times it feels like a sequel to a movie we never saw; surely, there's something we're missing here, right, some backstory we're supposed to have?

The hardest-working guy on this film had to be the foley artist, the technician responsible for figuring out what it sounds like to have both knees and elbows snapped, in rapid succession.

Unapologetically brutal and unencumbered by much plot, Raid is the year's most turbo-charged film, an Indonesian martial-arts movie that ups the violence by giving its characters a modern-day worldview - and weaponry.

It's a surge of adrenaline that connects a strong protagonist and story to martial arts moves - traditional Indonesian silat - that are well beyond business as usual.

I am dismayed. I have no prejudice against violence when I find it in a well-made film. But this film is almost brutally cynical in its approach.

It's easy to forget the story altogether in the sheer rush of Rama's fight to the top floor; instead, viewers will wonder how the amazing battle that just ended could possibly be topped. But it is, again and again.
