The Raid (Indonesian: Serbuan maut, lit. 'The Deadly Raid') is a 2011 Indonesian martial arts action film written, directed and edited by Welsh filmmaker Gareth Huw Evans. The film stars Iko Uwais, who previously worked with Evans in another action film, Merantau, released in 2009. Both films showcase the traditional Indonesian martial art Pencak Silat, with fight choreography led by Uwais and Yayan Ruhian. In The Raid, an elite squad is tasked to infiltrate a high-rise building – run by a ruthless drug lord – located in the slums of Jakarta; among them is Rama (played by Uwais), a rookie member of the team.
After its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), The Raid received positive reviews from critics. The name of the film was changed to The Raid: Redemption in the United States as distributor Sony Pictures Classics could not secure the rights to the title; it also allowed Evans to plan out future titles in the series. The US release of the film features film score composed by Mike Shinoda and Joseph Trapanese. It was released in the United States on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on 14 August 2012.
A sequel, The Raid 2, was released in 2014. A third sequel was initially planned for release in 2018 or 2019, but no production schedule has yet been announced.
