The Raid-Redemption by director and writer Gareth Evans is his feature-length movie. His first movie (Short) was the Samurai Monogatari he made it with Japanese players and in Japanese language. He was extreme director of unearthed films until the Raid-Redemption (2012).

He made major production in 2006 (The Footsteps) and The Raid-Redemption is his second major production.

The Raid is made by USA and Indonesian budgets. The bio about director was updated about 5 years ago by IMDB.

Despite he has been known director of unearthed films until The Raid his last movie is watched likely by many people around the world today.

I think he concerns on far-east (Indonesian-Japan) and The Raid reflects of eastern people feelings against some USA militarist point-operations which have been done in Pakistan about one year ago. And it reflects of those people feelings against some possible operations by USA in these states, Indonesia, Japan, Korea etc.

20-25 Indonesian policemen raids a big build where crime organizations placed for along time. They begin operation with commendation of a white Indonesian police chief.

Developing of roles make remember operation against Osama Laden: 25 Indonesia policeman and one white chief.

The end of the movie and budget of it (USA and Indonesia) make think two claims. Claim one, a white man in eastern operation means betrayal to eastern police. Claim two, if USA soldiers would do operation with local police in Pakistan, it would be more difficult for killing the target.

I defense first claim and I think director-writer Evans is approaching with antipathy foreign people in far-east. Evans is positioning the story in side of eastern people. I am sorry. I don't want to correlate the roles according to genres. But if 25 people are in same genre and only one man is in other genre, I can think these.

Praying (Islamic) player in beginning sequence by an American director made think all details of eastern daily issues.

The movie is very good and I will wait new movies of Evans.
