Gutted to miss the live recording but my fist pump is the moment that rama kills the guy with the broken door through the neck. Absolutely brutal

Awesome stuff! The Raid truly is a great film. I’m looking forward to seeing the american remake, even though there is just no way it can eclipse this brand of badass.
