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 reteams on The Raid: Redemption with Iko Uwais, the star and fight choreographer of thecult sensation Merantau - which first brought the Indonesian martial art of Pencak Silat to global attention. Already a word-of-mouth sensation at the Toronto Film Festival, where it played to sold out crowds, the film is now poised to reach global audiences with a propulsive new score by alternative rocker/composers Mike Shinoda of "Linkin Park" and Joe Trepanese of "M83".
