    DVD review: An action-packed 'Raid'
    It's safe to say that Gareth Huw Evans is the greatest Welsh director of Indonesian action films. Sony Classics picked up his second feature, “The Raid: Redemption,” to the cheers of Asian-action fans. The story is about a SWAT team sent on a suicide mission to grab a crime boss (Ray Sahetaphy) out of the 15-story urban apartment building that serves as his headquarters. When the squad's leader is killed, a rookie (Iko Uwais, who also served as fight choreographer) has to rise to the occasion and lead his guys through 14 video-monitored floors filled with murderous thugs. Story is hardly the point here, however. The film is almost entirely one action scene after another, starting with automatic weapons and then, as circumstances dictate, axes and knives, then improvised weapons, and finally hand-to-hand combat.
