"The Raid: Redemption" will be most successful for people with A.D.D. or just generally short attention spans.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.

The Raid does a good job of introducing Uwais' talents to the world. Now he just needs to be in a movie whose storytelling is as solid as his moves.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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.

The action is very well staged but it's no substitute for genuine suspense.

Nothing-special Indonesian actioner.

It's more like an Ultimate Fighting Championship than a movie.

If blood and guts martial arts action is your thing, this is as close to nirvana as it gets.

Grindingly monotonous, a blur of thudding body blows.

To summarize The Raid: Redemption in one word: 'Yahhhhhhhhhh!!!'

"The Raid: Redemption" will offer a full meal to action-starved moviegoers, but strike most others as -- for all its athletic dynamism -- lacking nutrition.

[T]his isn't a movie so much as a series of martial-arts duels strung together along the flimsiest of narrative threads.
April 15, 2012
Comes up way short in the fun department

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?

...imagine what a competent filmmaker, a John McTiernan or a Peter Hyams, say, could have accomplished with this material...

Strong on the martial arts skills but weak on the acting and screenplay
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
March 16, 2012
The fighting seems the same, repeated endlessly and unimaginatively and not different from what scores of such films offer. Without humor or originality, this is straight video game.
April 6, 2012
Action junkies who can't get enough hacking, chopping, and slashing will come out satiated, but others may very well start feeling numb by the last half hour, beaten down by hundreds of colliding body parts, impalements, lacerations, and yelling
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Grindhouse action flick needs more redeeming qualities
