Movie: The Raid: Redemption

We saw The Raid: Redemption last week at the State Theater.

One way to summarize the movie is to say that the most frustrating thing about this for me was that various combatants kept leaving guns on the floor, which they could have picked up and used, so that they could continue with the martial arts beatings. If you are serious about survival, that's not what you do.

Recommended only if you want an hour of beautifully choreographed non-stop, intense, violence, most of it in the form of hand-to-hand martial arts combat. I should note that the violence is brutal - less cartoonish than the typical Hollywood action movie - but not gory.
