Tarantino's Got Nothing On This Nonstop Action Ballet

You may think you've seen everything when it comes to movie violence, but you've never seen anything like The Raid: Redemption.

The film, about an Indonesian special-forces team that infiltrates a thug-infested slum controlled by a crime lord, is a continuous barrage of exquisitely choreographed, blood-pumping, grind-house-inspired martial-arts moves (with a satisfyingly surprising plot, to boot) that puts Tarantino to shame.

The Raid: Redemption is out now.
