Three New Clips from ‘The Raid’ Take Action Choreography to Dazzling New Heights

Over the past few days, three new eye-popping clips from The Raid have surfaced.  Each one displays a slightly different aspect of the film’s action choreography.  From the looks of things, it’s a Frankenstein’s monster of an action flick (and I mean that in the most complimentary sense), assembling parts from a variety of different sources.  These scenes are the very definition of organized chaos, as they refine mindless carnage into a fine art.

Movie Review: Red Tails

As their white counterparts wage war with the Nazis over the skies of Europe, the Tuskegee Airmen wait patiently in the wings.  Uncle Sam, however, apparently sees them as something of a nuisance and would have them permanently sidelined as World War II rages on.  However, this particular band of brothers flat out refuses to let their talents wither and die on the vine.  With the help of powerful allies in the upper ranks of the military, the airmen eventually earn the right to fight and possibly die for a country that hardly values such a noble sacrifice.
