Is there any more that I can possibly write about my anticipation for The Raid? At this point, I just want to see the damned movie already. It certainly doesn’t help that Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions keeps dangling film clips and trailers in front of fans like carrots in front of Bugs Bunny. They obviously know they have one Hell of a product on their hands, and have no compunction about teasing it up until the zero hour. What else could possibly explain their curious decision to rename it The Raid: Redemption so late in the game? Just what is that title change supposed to signify?

Of Batman’s many moniker’s, “The Dark Knight” has always been my favorite. It adds an air of majesty to the caped crusader, almost as if the Batman persona is a position that has been handed down in the Wayne family for generations. It also paints the Batman as a true warrior that holds a place of honor in his beloved Gotham. It’s a title befitting an icon. After all, what is The Batman if not a Knight in every sense of the word?
