Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"My only complaint about The Raid is that it ended."
‑ Chase Whale,
""The Raid: Redemption" is built on shaky and blood-soaked ground, but if towering technique is all you want from an action movie, then yippee-ki-yay."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Hollywood is particularly unsuited to producing sensation cinema these days."
‑ Grady Hendrix, Film Comment Magazine
"Action so relentless, the stuntmen probably asked for stuntmen."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"The Raid: Redemption is simply the best action movie of the last decade. Director Gareth Evans films the combat with a trained eye to maximize the intensity and entertainment."
‑ Jeremy Lebens, We Got This Covered
"For now, count 'The Raid' alongside the likes of Peter Jackson's 'Bad Taste' or Guillermo del Toro's 'Mimic': a talented young filmmaker flexing his muscles, stating his intent, and promising better things in the future."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"Evans doesn't bother much with story or character development, instead making his film a kind of brutal ballet."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"You really have an obligation to see it to witness what has a legitimate claim of being the best action film of all time."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"The movie "Dredd 3D" should have been."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
""The Raid: Redemption" will be most successful for people with A.D.D. or just generally short attention spans."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"The movie gets a little slow when it settles down for some routine dialogue or plot development, but it's never more than a couple minutes before break time is over and it's back to the insane fighting stunts."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"The movie is a gory free-for-all, a horror film dressed up as an action film, and it's as pure a shot of adrenaline as any Tarantino fan could wish for."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"Gareth Huw Evans doesn't swipe plot points as much as organically build a taut, expertly choreographed heir to urban mayhem fantasies"
‑ Matt Kelemen, Las Vegas CityLife
"Hyped as one of the most thrilling and enjoyable action movies to come along in the last decade, this is one of the rare occasions where the hype is actually well deserved."
‑ Kofi Outlaw, ScreenRant
"This adrenaline-fuelled spectacle of flying fists, whirling kicks and spurting blood will leave you breathless, exhilarated and shouting for more."
‑ Kristal Cooper, We Got This Covered
