Fun violent movie

I watched this movie with my mother yesterday. My mother is rather sensitive to gory things so she didn't really like the movie. I in fact do like gory movies and that brings me to my point... The Raid is a very violent and bloody movie. Machetes are used, axes, knifes, guns, you name it. It's a bloodbath movie but isn't anymore then something like Rambo.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing

Incredible action film

Brutal fistfights, shootouts, with splattering blood. Not as violent as its sequel but still very bloody and brutal. Frequent language. Very well done and extremely entertaining.
