Announcing the screening of the perfect action movie in
The Model Cinema:
The Raid (Cert 18).
Directed by Gareth Evans
Every once in a blue moon comes an action movie that reinvigorates the genre, raising the bar for the next generation of contenders; Welsh filmmaker, Gareth Evans’ breathless and bloody contender, filmed in Indonesia, is one of these. An elite swat team is ambushed, when they raid an impenetrable safe house for the world’s most dangerous criminals. The Raid is the most eagerly anticipated action movie of 2012.
The pared-down narrative concerns a swat team’s ill-advised attempt to storm the massive apartment complex run by crime boss Tama (Ray Sahetaphy). To nab the bad guy and get out alive, they’re going to have to kick ass and plenty of it. Their ace in the hole is rookie cop Rama, portrayed with verve by charismatic Indonesian martial artist, Iko Uwais, oozing star potential as he beats – using the unique Silat fighting style – a path to freedom.
Winner of both audience and critics’ awards at this year’s Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, The Raid was greeted with a well-deserved standing ovation. It’s the first in a projected trilogy. This high-octane action movie will be screening in The Model Cinema on 27th and 28th June at 8.15pm and Sunday, 1st July at 6.15pm. Also it will be screening on 4th and 5th July at 6.15pm, and on Sunday, 8th July at 3.15pm.
