Not nearly as good as "Saving Private Ryan" or "Platoon", but still good

Then again, I think it's impossible to make a better war movie than the two listed above (same goes with the general genre, but also including "Schindler's List"). I would suggest that you read the book first to familiarize yourself with the movie's premise, since some people thought it was a little confusing (personally, I didn't). Continuing the inevitable movie comparisons, "Raid" wan't nearly as violent/gorey as "Ryan" and wasn't as realistic as "Schindler's" 'actuality violence'. There was some cussing here and there, and two brief "f*cks" (one was kind of hard to hear though). So if overall, the movie was good, though I have a feeling that I appreciated it more since that period of conflict greatly interests me.
