Jordan J (mx) wrote: I gave this a shot and I actually think it's better than part 3 and 4. In my opinion it would be worth giving this movie a shot.
Shane D (gb) wrote: Lacks the brilliantly tight plot device and premise of the original, this instead, takes the route of martial arts melodrama. Sure it has some epic fight scenes, but they are spread out over a sprawling story of warring mobs. The first Raid was so simple and adrenalised that this seems disappointing by contrast. But if you remove it's association to its predecessor, it's a solid classic.
P H (jp) wrote: Decent premise that doesn't really go anywhere. It just turns into a torture movie with some bad performances. James Duval is dreadful, Noah Hathaway not that great other than being tortured, and Mark Hamill's bizarre character seems like he is in the wrong movie. Tony Todd and Andy MacKenzie are the only shining spots in the cast. Even the cameos by Michael Biehn and Danny Trejo are horrid. Bad acting aside, I was interested in the movie until I realized it just became a torture movie and the entire Sushi Girl dinner wasnt really needed at all. Seriously, just get the guy and torture him. No need for fancy dinners for a few thugs. Maybe if the Sushi dinner was a ritual for this group and had meaning, like maybe they did something like this before their heists? Just doesnt make sense with this particular group. Disappointing .

Russell G (es) wrote: It's cheap and the all girl cast is super annoying in the want to yell at them way. It's pretty novel though, in that the camera never seems to leave the mini-van, and it is an all girl cast. It all takes place in real time, so provided you can stand 5 screaming do-nothing broads for the running time, it's well worth checking out.

Tyler T (br) wrote: Fantastic wit, well shot and acted. A great way to make humorous and light of absurdity, while gently prodding metaphysical stimulation at the viewer. Very enjoyable for fans of Wes Anderson and other ambiguous new wave revivalists.
Letitia L (gb) wrote: Chow's comedic creativity knows no bounds. From a soccer field under attack, turned into a war movie sketch, to the gongfu moves on the soccer field where turf and clothes equally go flying--everything is so delightfully kua zhang (exaggerated). Enjoyed the cameos from Karen Mok and Cecilia Cheung, and Danny Chan Kwok-kwan's Bruce Lee impersonation. The only reason I'm not rating 5 stars is for the lower production value and some unconvincingly awkward chemistry between characters.

Ryan V (kr) wrote: A goofy sci-fi favorite when I was a kid. As an adult, it's cringeworthy and embarrassing.
Alexander P (ag) wrote: A vintage British black comedy. The Citizen Kane of the genre. 8/10.
Brandon W (ag) wrote: Gleefully dumb fun with good performances all around. However no character other than Ford has good motovations, and this makes the action very hollow. It may be die hard on the presidents plane but you can only laugh and shake your head at the final gloriously cheesy 30 minutes at the impossibility and increasingly visible plotholes of the film as a whole. It's worth a watch (every once in a while).

Heather M (kr) wrote: It is safe to skip this movie because it is a bit of a mess, but there are a few hilarious moments with Wolff and Silverman that save it from being the worst movie so far this year.
