Official Behind The Scenes Stills From THE RAID
Over the past few days I've been posting behind the scenes shots from my visit to the set of The Raid - the new martial arts / action film from the team who created Merantau.Well, I'm all packed up and on my way home from Jakarta now but before I went the producers loaded up my portable hard drive with four days worth of behind the scenes shots from their official set photographer. Needless to say the quality is rather a lot better.

I've selected my favorites - seventeen in all - for you to check out below. The subjects are a mix of cast and crew and they include the first images of a lengthy fight scene between Yayan Ruhian and former Indonesian National Judo Champion Joe Taslim. And I think you'll agree that Taslim is a total badass.

A swat team arrives at a rundown apartment block with a mission to remove its owner, a notorious drug lord named Tama. The building has never been raided before, never been touched by police. Seen as a no go zone it has since become a sanctuary to killers, gangs, rapists and thieves seeking accommodation in the one place they know they cannot be touched.

Making their move in the break of dawn the swat team work their way up the building under cover of silence. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and with news of their assault traveling to Tama in his penthouse suite the building is locked down with all lights out and all exits blocked.

Stranded on the 6th floor the swat team must fight their way through every floor and every room not just to complete their mission but to survive.
