The Raid blasts out a Red Band trailer

Swat versus drug dealers

 
If John Woo had shot Assault On Precinct 13, The Raid is what it would be like. 
 
Bold words maybe, but once you watch the blood-spattered red band trailer below we feel you'll agree. 
 
The action sees a Swat-style unit trapped in a housing complex, taking on a heavily armed gang of drug dealers. 
 
Created by Welsh-born writer/director Gareth Evans and shot in Indonesia, The Raid been making a name for itself at the Toronto International Film Festival. 
 
See why below... 

Can't wait for this to splash claret all over your local multiplex? Or is the Woo-style action genre so two decades ago? Fire out your opinions below!

      Saw this trailer over the weekend and it's now my most-wanted film! I've read a dozen or so reviews from TIFF which have all said this is already one of the best action movies ever made. I can believe it too; the concept is fantastic and the way the action appears to be shot is crisp and clean, reminding me of the likes of Die Hard and Hard Boiled. Please hurry up and give us a date!!!
