    The pacing in that movie was pretty good

    and the ending to that fight was fucking siiiiiiiiiiiiiiick

  • Butler For Life #1Butler For Life #1 The Other Twin (Not the bug one)Registered User regular
    So, this movie

    was really ,really good

    cinematography was beautiful, it was incredibly atmospheric

    the beginning of the movie was amazing, it set things up so well
    The fights were amazing, and somehow they managed to make it violent without making it gory

    the violence caused me to literally put up my hands in shock at a few points

    at the beginning when he opened the desk droor and pulled out the hammer, I almost gasped

    the ending was incredible, with the relationship between the brothers and Andi's decision to stay behind

    the way he smiled as he walked away

    SO GOOD.

    Also, they used the wilhelm scream!

    The ending was annoying

    the theatre fucked it up so the subtitles were right below the screen, and were unreadable for awhile till they fixed it, and they didn't restart

    pretty sure I didn't miss much though, just setting up that there's a bag guy there and what not

    also that ending was pretty fantastic

    from Wikipedia:
    Due to a trademark issue in U.S. and the plan of a trilogy, the original English title for U.S. distribution has been slightly changed to The Raid: Redemption.

    HOLY SHIT

    Wait

    what

  • Butler For Life #1Butler For Life #1 The Other Twin (Not the bug one)Registered User regular
    This is the first film in a series apparently

    Director confirms it on his blog

    FUCK YES

    i said this earlier

    the guy that wrote/directed wants to do more

    i think he's already working on number two

    if you like this movie check out merantau because that was his first movie and it's not as good but the fights are radical

    When it's only 15?

    That's another one of those ironic bits of the movie

    there were a lot of really subtle jokes and nods in the movie, loved it

    I was already sad my theater didn't get this movie, and coming into this thread has only made me sadder that I can't see it.

    The Raid is a harrowing tale of one man's quest to rid Jakarta of the plight of intact skeletal structure.

    I haven't cringed that much at a martial arts movie since Ong Bak.

    so good.

    Oh man that one scene...
    When the main character stabs one poor bastard in the chest and stomach at near the speed of light with his little Fuck Off knife.

    man
    in the drug lab the dude came at him with a knife

    the entire time i'm just thinking "no no no do not get near this dude with a knife, he's just gonna take it from you somehow, and then ruin your shit with it

    this man does unholy things with knives

    don't do oh there he goes yep stab stab stab"

    I kind of wish they'd just not bothered with "plot" and "characters"

    because the plot didn't make sense and the characters were thinner than office paper.

    It's a fun movie to watch, a reminder of what western directors could learn from eastern fight scenes (nary a shaky cam), but it could have been a whole lot better with some more attention paid to the writing.

    For example
    The movie is called The Raid: Redemption and
    There is not a single moment of redemption. Nobody redeems themselves in this movie. The good guys are always good, the bad guys are always bad. The brother doesn't even redeem himself. He helps his brother survive, then goes right back to being an unrepentant criminal, only now without anybody outranking him.

  • Vann DirasVann Diras Registered User regular
    nah man this movie the exact kind of plot i wanted from it

    i'm also not sure what you mean about the shaky cam comment because this movie had plenty of it

  • #pipe#pipe Cocky Stride, Musky odours Pope of Chili TownRegistered User regular
    I mean it didn't have camera motion that intentionally obscured the action.

  • StaleStale Registered User regular
    Pipe, it's a kung-fu movie.

    not a romantic drama.


    I could give all of zero fucks about the writing. I mean, look at Ong-Bak. Great movie, terrible writing.
