A review movie from Indonesia: The Raid.
Producer: Ario Sagantoro
Production: PT. wander FILMS
Director: Gareth Huw Evans
A Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team from Indonesia arrived at an apartment block is neglected and the team has a mission to catch the owner of a drug dealer named Tama in the fifteenth floor. This apartment was never raided or even touched before by the police. As a place which is not accessible by the authorities, the building became a heaven of murderers, gang members, rapists, and thieves who seek a safe place to live.
They started their mission in the early morning, they quietly into the apartment and controlling every floor. But when they were spotted by Tama’s scouts, they began to raid uncovered. From his penthouse suite, Tama instructed to lock the apartment building to extinguish the lights and closed all access roads.
Stuck on the 6th floor with no communication and attacked by residents who were asked by Tama, the team had to fight through every floor and every room to complete their mission and survive.
I got two lessons from this film:
- As bad as a person, family are still family.
- As close as a family, everyone has their life choices.
