Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will bring The Raid: Redemption to Blu-ray in August. Director Gareth Evans' ferocious action-thriller reunites him with his Merantau star Iko Uwais, who plays a beleaguered SWAT team member trying to survive a desperate assault on a drug lord's apartment complex.
From Sony's official synopsis:
"Deep in the heart of Jakarta's slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world's most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, they find themselves stranded on the 6th floor with no way out. The unit must fight their way through the city's worst [criminals] to survive their mission."
