UK Readers!! Britgeek Wants To Give You Cool THE RAID Stuff!!
If you haven't yet seen Gareth Evans' THE RAID, you're missing out on the most hard-hitting action movie of the year. Starring MERANTAU's Iko Uwais, the film centres around a SWAT team that must fight to the death through a tower block brimming with violent criminals who are armed to the teeth. It's a simple set-up, reminiscent of the original script for Bruce Lee's THE GAME OF DEATH, but boy is it a thrill-a-minute instant classic.
If you remember, earlier this year I gave away a few limited-edition THE RAID vinyl bags. Well, now that THE RAID is out on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK, how about I run another competition?
It’s an intense, virtually non-stop series of unbelievable fight sequences set to an electrifying kick-ass score by Linkin Park vocalist, keyboardist and rhythm guitarist Mike Shinoda and reaffirms Gareth Evans’ reputation as a director to watch and further confirms Iko Uwais’ status as both an outstanding fight choreographer and as one of world’s most impressive new action movie stars.
Please note that this contest is open exclusively to residents of the United Kingdom.
To mark the release of THE RAID, available now on Blu-ray and DVD from Momentum Pictures Home Entertainment, I have one (1) limited-edition vinyl bag and one (1) copy of the film on DVD up for grabs. To be in with a chance of winning, just answer the following question correctly:
Which member of Linkin Park worked on the original score for THE RAID?
A) Brad Delson
B) Joe Hahn
C) Chester Bennington
D) Mike Shinoda
To enter, all you need to do is send me an email with the subject line “I WANT TO RAID” and include your full name, location and answer.
For a bonus entry, tell me your answer via Twitter.
Winners will be selected at random and notified shortly after the competition closes at midnight on Wednesday, October 3.
Best of luck!

Because Brian Cox was great in this. He nailed the lieutenant role big time, especially when he was doing hand to hand combat

So happy to see an 18 action film in the cinema this year (this and Dredd). Looking forward to the sequel but not so much the Hollywood remake.
