The Raid is getting remade by Joe Carnahan, and it’s starring Frank Grillo. I’m stoked by this news, as I’m a fan of the actor smashing skulls. Looking gruff and sexy. Smashing more skulls.

Gareth Evans’ Raid flicks are fucking phenomenal. Glorious white-knuckle strikes to your genitals, and you thank him for them. Evans’ next flick is going to be Apostle, starring Dan Stevens. Apparently dude was in Downtown Abigail, but more importantly he fucking ruled in The Guest.

Sequel to ‘THE RAID’ starts right after the original. Bone-breaking yes!

Last year’s brutal action flick The Raid was excellent for a variety of reasons. However, for my dollars-to-Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers, what was particularly excellent was the sparsity of its plot.

Here is hoping that it continues the simple premise, “here are some enemies, punch them.”

I’m not playing around with silly accents, half-assed attempts at comedy and protracted self-deprecation this week. Hell no: I’m injecting this fact-stream straight into your cerebral cortex, just like you were Motoko Kusanagi. We’re all in the machine now and you need a games news hyperderm.
