RAID: REDEMPTION, THE
In a rough-and-tumble Jakarta slum, an elite police squad is tasked with infiltrating a high-rise apartment building in order to topple the notorious crime lord Tama Riyad (veteran Indonesian actor Ray Sahetapy). As the team ascends the building, their cover is blown and Tama traps them, offering sanctuary and free rent for anyone who can take them out. All of the building's shady inhabitants — gangsters, junkies, henchmen and killers — are willing to rise to the challenge. When the squad's leader is killed, Rama (Indonesian martial arts master Iko Uwais, who also choreographed the Pencak Silat fight scenes) must complete the mission and lead his men to safety.
