As a rookie member of an elite special-forces team, Rama (Iko Uwais) is instructed to hang back during a covert mission involving the extraction of a brutal crime lord from a rundown fifteen-story apartment block. But when a spotter blows their cover, boss Tama (Ray Sahetaphy) offers lifelong sanctuary to every killer, rapist and thief in the building in exchange fortheir heads. Now Rama must stand in for the team's fallen leader (Joe Taslim) and use every iota of his fighting strength - winding through every floor and every room to complete the mission and escape with his life.
Recently named one of 2012's "Directors To Watch" by Variety, Gareth Huw Evans re-teams on THE RAID: REDEMPTION with Iko Uwais, the star and fight choreographer of the 2009 cult sensation MERANTAU, which first brought the Indonesian martial art of Pencak Silat to global attention.
Winner of the 2011 Midnight Madness People’s Choice Audience Award at the Toronto Film Festival, the film stars the newest martial arts sensation, Iko Uwais. Co-starring Joe Taslim, Doni Alamsyah, Yayan Ruhian, Pierre Gruno, Ray Sahetapy and Tegar Satrya, THE RAID: REDEMPTION was written and directed by Gareth Evans and features a kick ass score by Mike Shinoda of "Linkin Park" and Joe Trepanese of "M83".
