Not sure if this will work, but below is an embed video of a review of THE RAID: REDEMPTION from the Totally Rad Show. 

I'm not too crazy about the title, THE RAID: REDEMPTION, it sounds like there are two titles.  Possibly better than its original name of "Berandal", which means nothing to the American audience (but to be fair, we've embraced and accepted these Thai names of "Ong Bak" and "Tom-Yum-Goong"...).

From hearing the three guys talk about the movie, it looks like a cross between THE MAN FROM NOWHERE (Korean, great knife fight) and MERANTAU (a weird mix of muay Thai and Indonesian martial arts), but set in a GAME OF DEATH background. 

I'm going to try and catch it at the independent theater in uptown. I have also already committed to see THE HUNGER GAMES, which I think sounds like a complete rip-off of the Japanese movie, BATTLE ROYALE (which just came out on Bluray, I have the Region 3 DVD, so I might try and pick up the Bluray boxset).
